Vijai Lakshmikanthan, CEO, Starlim North America Corporation
Arthur Lierman Landscape Architecture far exceeded our expectations here at Starlim. We had just completed our largest building expansion to date, and Art’s unique landscape design brought our new building to life. ALLA took our vision and modern taste and made it into reality. Art’s designs are creative, and we regularly get comments from our guests on the beauty of the Starlim grounds. We cannot thank Art and his team enough and would gladly recommend them as a reputable Landscape Architectural Consultant.
Andrew Spriet, Spriet Associates Engineers & Architects
Arthur Lierman Landscape Architecture is our major source of landscape design advice and forms part of our team. Arthur provides great attention to detail, shows keen interest, and is committed to the projects. He scopes out the sites for unique solutions and is definitely a hands-on professional. Arthur exceeds the norm in the service he provides.
Brian & Georgina Finch
Brian and I are very happy to recommend Art and his team. The landscape architectural design they provided us has matured and made our residential property so beautiful. It shows off our contemporary home very well. Art was great to work with in the planning stages and getting the best product for us. Since we were not having any lawn this required many creative ideas with groundcovers, ornamental grasses and specialty shrubs and trees. We especially love our feature tree, “a beautiful Catalpa”, which he found for us. It is the centre of our back garden and always looks perfect in its place.
Karen Crich, Auburn Developments
Arthur Lierman Landscape Architecture has provided invaluable landscape work on numerous projects for both Auburn Homes and Auburn Developments for over 7 years and has completed all of our projects on time and on budget. Arthur’s designs are unique, creative and the planting material chosen thrives. I have no hesitation in recommending Art and his team of professionals as a reputable Landscape Architecture Consultant.
Paul & Janice Strickland
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Art and his team. Since we needed accessibility features for our son’s mobility issues, Art was involved from the start as we built our new home to incorporate Universal Design elements for the front entrance, driveway and back yard. It was a great success and a pleasure to work collaboratively with Art and the highly skilled craftsmen and contractors he recommended that implemented each phase of our landscape.
Holden & Carey Rhodes
Arthur Lierman Landscape Architecture has an innate sense of the uniqueness of each property and what works best for it, all the while, in consult with the owners who ultimately enjoy the creations. Art’s experience is matched by his knowledge of plant material, what works, and what doesn’t for softscape designs. His creativity with hardscapes is very impressive as well. I would highly recommend Art and his team.
Julie Michaud, City of London Parks Project Coordinator
I have worked with Arthur Lierman Landscape Architecture on a few projects over the last few years, including the Piccadilly Park Re-Development project. I find that Art and his team are able to listen to their clients’ wishes, and respond in a creative and site-specific manner. Strong design skills and attention to detail are certainly some of their greatest assets. It contributes to the success of every project, from plans to reality. Art and his team also have a good understanding of budget constraints and construction costs, and how they can fit a project within available funding without losing any essential pieces.
Akira Sugimoto & Joanne Kirby
At the outset of renovation considerations for our outdated and problematic backyard, we were advised to hire a landscape architect due the magnitude and myriad of issues to resolve. Upon hiring Arthur Lierman Landscape Architecture, we were able to communicate directly with Art and appreciated his priority attention towards our project. Art and his team provided clear and comprehensive information about aesthetics, durability, and cost of various options and then listened intently to our preferences. Despite the fact that Art was responsible for playing such a major role in project management, we always felt that our satisfaction for the outcome was most important to him. He also coordinated the construction and made sure all trades were accountable and following the plans. Art’s artistic sensibility and technical knowledge ensured everything fit well together. After only a short while, we came to trust his judgment implicitly which turned out to be the singular most important aspect to our satisfaction and the success of the project. We would recommend ALLA, especially to those interested in detail, aesthetics, and function.
Charlie Miller, Canadian Commercial Group of Companies
Over the past 10 years, we have worked closely with Arthur Lierman Landscape Architecture on many of our retail development projects across Ontario. We have always felt that Art and his design team’s work ethic have exceeded our expectations for project management, design, and professionalism. They are an extremely professional firm with a creative sense of design and we are always happy with the outcome!
Adam & Michelle Bain
Our project had a number of challenging elements, all of which Art and his team were able to integrate into an incredible work of art. I would highly recommend Art and his team; their attention to detail is incredible. We were absolutely blown away by the way it all turned out and recognized the value of hiring a professional landscape architect.
Rob Szabo, Palasad
For the past 15 years I have used Arthur Lierman Landscape Architecture to design landscapes for a number of commercial and hospitality projects as well as my own residence. Art and his team have a great ability to design landscapes that are striking and low maintenance even in difficult environments. I especially like how they use geometry and hardscapes in their designs.
Gary & Nancy McAuley
Art Lierman was a pleasure to work with. After meeting with us on site and taking inventory of our garden aspirations, Art and his team created a beautiful design and extremely detailed landscape plans. They considered many important factors: colours of foliage and blooms, scale, location (particularly in regard to privacy and shade around our pool area), the plants’ life span and behavior throughout the seasons, and more. Art’s acumen and passion for landscape architecture and design is very evident. He took care of everything, making us feel at ease. To say we were pleased with their work would be an understatement!
Claudio Tomè, R. Tomè & Associates Inc.
Art has consistently demonstrated great skill at creating landscape design solutions that enhance the architecture and are sensitive to the site and surroundings. Whether it is a private garden or a large scale project, the outdoor spaces are thoughtfully designed and meticulously detailed. He also has the knowledge and experience of working alongside design team members to help guide projects through the intricate and often lengthy Site Plan Approval process and municipal planning requirements. In working with Art, I’ve found that he brings a unique approach to projects while always being respectful of the client’s needs and budget.
Brian & Jane McCall
In 2001, Art designed our front yard. The results were so impressive we had him redesign our back gardens, including custom screens, fences and a small pavilion, a few years later with equally impressive results. To this day, we are delighted with the mature gardens and the structures. We are always happy to show them off and have since recommended Art to others who have also hired him for their garden designs.
Tom Srebrnjak & Lori Derkach, Winston & Heidi
After purchasing a 5-acre parcel of land in North London, my wife and I were excited and anxious to start the process of transforming our grass covered property into a tree covered oasis to be enjoyed for years to come. We are passionate gardeners ourselves but soon became overwhelmed with the scale of the project; it was way out of our league. Enter Art and his team. Art had a vision like an artist with a canvas. As we walked around the property, he silently sketched. A Master Plan was devised that included multiple unique microclimates including dry, bog, and rock gardens, a pond, a games court, an orchard, a fire pit and even several areas for our puppies to enjoy. Art’s knowledge in all forms of landscaping and vegetation was invaluable in creating this botanical oasis that is enjoyed by our family on a daily basis. Our ritual most days is to walk around the “park” and immerse ourselves in the canvas of beauty that Art and his team created for us.
Jeff Bowerbank & Robin Honey
Previous owners of our house had done some landscaping that was not in keeping with the mid-century architectural style. There was a mish-mash of plantings from various time periods and we thought a better landscape vision would enhance the street appeal of the house. Art listened to what we wanted, reviewed our magazine/photo references, and was able to synthesize our thoughts into the design. The result far exceeded our expectations. It really did transform the house into a statement that passers-by frequently stop and comment on.
Michel Charlebois, Sr. Project Mgr., Brookfield Johnson Control
In 2009, Arthur Lierman Landscape Architecture was hired by BLCJ to re-design the TD Bank Call Centre Patio Area at 745 York St. in London, ON. The new patio design, including the layout and choice of materials, trees and shrubs, far exceeded the client’s expectations and is still the subject of many conversations amongst 1,500 staff members and visitors alike. I would recommend Arthur Lierman Landscape Architecture to anyone who wants an innovative and sustainable design.
Art redesigned our front garden and courtyard in 2013 and, now that the installation has been completed, we are delighted with the final results. We decided to use an independent professional landscape architect for our design work after we found that most landscape installers do not have design skills and are often more interested in selling new driveways or kitschy bubbling rocks – which were not part of our plan. Art certainly lived up to the high recommendations we received and created the beautiful modern, clean type of design that we sought. He was very patient with all our questions and requests as we went through several drafting phases. It was also helpful to have his insights on which contractors could be relied on to do high quality work when we solicited installation bids from various companies. I have no hesitation in strongly recommending Art to anyone considering a landscape project.
Greg & Patty Gillis
In 2008, Art transformed the front yard of our house. Taking into consideration our needs and preferences, Art designed a look that works not only aesthetically but functionally. We love the low maintenance of the gardens, the accessibility of the front walk, as well as the different textures, colours and media that Art incorporated into the landscape. To this day we receive compliments regularly on the attractiveness of the landscaping and front entry.
Lee & Kate Greenwood
Working with Art and his design team was truly a great experience. Art is a master at providing a landscape “vision” and created a beautiful and modern setting in our yards. Art was enthusiastic throughout the process and his attention to detail, including maintenance after completion, was greatly appreciated. Spending time outdoors on our property has become a treat!
Nancy Powers, Executive Director, The Salvation Army Centre Of Hope
We were so pleased to work with Art Lierman on our Community Garden project for The Salvation Army. He brought his energy, creativity and design concepts that not only resulted in a unique garden but has brought a beautiful, revitalized space to the SOHO community.
