"Reinier Van de Poll listened carefully to our needs and desires, and created an amazing transformation to our yard. It is now a resort-like setting that we enjoy year-round. Reinier was respectful of our budget and enjoyed excellent relationships with the other contractors working on this huge and complicated project."

"Our challenge was a small enclosed area where we wanted to create a usable outdoor space. What Reinier created was beyond our expectations: a beautiful private oasis with multi-tiered decking, stonework, strategically placed gardens and even space for a small fountain!"
GREG AND BARB SHENTON,
WHITE ROCK
"After years of creating a garden ourselves, we decided to hire a landscape designer. We interviewed several and decided on Reinier's work. He listened carefully and gave us back a design that was so perfect that, as it matures, we love it more and more - and we loved it so much when it was first complete!"

This breathtaking site required a landscape designed project to enhance it while not taking away from its natural beauty. Careful attention was paid to creating pleasing shaped areas of pool, patio, planting, and grass in a scale that matches the site. Each area flows well into the next allowing the user an enjoyable outdoor living experience. Natural rock was reused from the pool excavation to echo the raw materials thus establishing an authentic landscape site. Innovative products were used to install the following features: a high quality putting green, efficient drainage, firetable, outdoor kitchen, spectacular outdoor lighting, and an auto pool cleaning system. The clients captured the end result well: "Our yard is now a resort-like setting that we enjoy year-round."

A dream home was expertly constructed by Wescraft Builder on a dream property in High Point Estates, Langley. This exquisite home and interior needed a garden setting to allow a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor living. Van De Poll Garden Design was brought in right from the start to assist in siting the house on the property -bearing in mind the sun exposure, views, and privacy. The design goals for the landscape was to include an inviting entry to the property, a sense of arrival at the front, a multi-purpose entertainment patio area, and a blending into the natural surroundings.

This project required detailed design and planning due to the challenges of the site's terrain. Van de Poll Garden Design worked closely with Aloha Pools and the Anmore City planning department to ensure the success of the project. The clients had a goal in mind for their backyard -to provide them with a secluded oasis right outside their back door that was both private and yet had vistas to the neighbouring views. Innovation was used with locating the pool equipment within a sunken bunker to keep it hidden from the open views of the site. The infinity spill edge of the pool was designed to bring in the view of the distant mature conifer trees. Sculpted concrete boulders echoed the nearby water feature, and brought a much-needed naturalness to the site. Someone enjoying this backyard feels wonderfully secluded from the outside world.

This backyard extends from the indoor living space to the outdoors in a most natural way. An old deck that needed alot of annual care was replaced by a care-free composite decking material called Trex. This type of deck allows the summer user to be barefoot without concern for slivers. The deck has room for a BBQ and an easily assessable hot tub. Step down to a beautiful taupe paver patio surrounded by a seat wall under fragrant vines growing on an arbour trellis. With full, colorful plantings nearby the whole outdoor living space feels private, inviting and lush.
