Oskar Valdman, Owner

Hi I’m Oskar, I’ve been landscaping since 1996, and I know the Calgary soil and climate can be a unique challenge.

After 20+ years of experimenting and learning from the world’s greatest landscape designers in Paris, London and San Francisco, I finally discovered the secret to turning Calgary’s barren waste places into sustainable, blooming gardens…

You listened to our ideas. You were timely and prompt, on time and within budget. You were both very professional and personable and a pleasure to work with. We have had numerous compliments from neighbors and even strangers passing by.

 

Dear Lucy and Oskar,

Again, many thanks to you both (and your guys) for the wonderful landscaping you recently completed in our front yard. You listened to our ideas, offered your advice and then developed several options for us to consider. You were timely and prompt, and completed the agreed upon work on time and within budget. You cleaned up the work site at the end of each day. We appreciate that you took the time to answer all our questions and also that you gave us advice on how to care for the plants that were installed. But far more important was that you were both very professional and personable and a pleasure to work with.

The results of your work are very creative and of very high standard. We have had numerous compliments from neighbors and even strangers passing by. Please feel free to us a reference. Thank you and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

A great experience with Lady Bug Creative Landscape and Design this spring (June/July 2017). For our front yard, we sought out quotes from other landscaping companies but none were able to provide ideas and suggestions like Lucy at Lady Bug. Lucy was able to bridge the hard landscaping with the soft landscaping which is what we wanted – a true head to tail, full solution for our front yard. Lady Bug exceeded our expectations – not only were they within budget but delivered ahead of schedule and went beyond with unexpected finishing touches. Great to work with and highly recommend.

I am so happy with the work done on my front yard by Lady Bug. What an amazing transformation! Lucy’s design work is beautiful and even when faced with the challenge of a reduced budget from what I first gave her, she was able to do an amazing job. Oscar and his side-kick (whose name I unfortunately did not ask, but he was very pleasant) did a great job and it was done in the time frame they indicated. This will be a long-term relationship, as I will definitely hire them for the next phases of my yard renovation. 

Thanks so much, Lady Bug!

Fabulous company, fabulous results! We’re absolutely thrilled with the landscaping design and installation provided by Lucy and her crew. Lucy listened to our wants and made smart and creative suggestions. The design software she uses gives an excellent visual of how your design will look. The results are more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. She’s hard working, sincere, a real artist and a pleasure to work with.

Dear Lucy, Oskar and Michael:

Our deepest thanks for all your hard work this year, when we look back over the year from spring bounding, the play house on a Saturday night to building the greenhouse to creating a lovely colorful yard filled with summer flowers, we feel so blessed to have you in our lives.

Thank you so much. Patricia and Allan Markin
