Testimonials


The Condominium Corporation under my management obtained a comprehensive exterior revitalization plan from Kent Ford Design Group and the Board was very impressed. Kent and his team were a joy to work with providing guidance and education all through the design process. For either an immediate or long term plan I would confidently recommend Kent Ford Design Group.

After much time spent researching the right landscape architect for our project, we knew wholeheartedly that Kent Ford was the right person to turn our dream garden into reality. We had a feeling in mind for our front porch, tutor style home but needed much help to bring our ideas together. Kent Ford Design Group has created an elegant and timeless garden, one that blends in with our neighborhood of historic homes, and one that comes most admired by it’s residents. What we loved the most was Kent’s attention to detail, his meticulous approach to selecting just the right plant, hedge or tree and his frequent presence on-site as to ensure that his vision comes to life exactly as he planned. Kent’s professional abilities, together with his friendly, funny and approachable personal style, have made this project one to be fondly remembered!

I am enjoying my flowers that Bruce planted for me. My garden is 14 years old and I am delighted each time I look at it. Thanks for such wonderful design.

We hired Kent Ford to oversee the design and installation of our parking pad, and front and back gardens. He did an amazing job. His work was exquisitely conceived, flawlessly executed and aesthetically superb. He was attentive and available every step of the way. Thank you Kent!

As I walked toward your installation at the Flower and Garden show this past year I was struck by the incredible scent of lillies. As I made my way up the stone steps, I lost all sense of scale and felt like I was in a park. Trees, "fields" of flowers,and a wood and stone gazebo at the top of the "hill" shocked me how in such a small area you created such a tableau. Thank you for such a delightful experience, needless to say I stayed there longer than expected.

Harindra and I just wanted to express our thanks for a job well done! We are thrilled with the transformation of our front and back yard. We have had many neighbours, friends and family comment on how beautiful everything looks. Most importantly, the kids have been enjoying their new spaces. We would also like to thank you for helping to make this process enjoyable. We had complete confidence in Kampens and you and knew the job would be done properly and in a timely fashion.

Our little gem, the second-floor, common-use deck, designed by one of Ontario's award-winning landscape architects, Kent Ford, has evolved, and flourishes as an oasis where Residents share the enjoyment of its calming greenery and flowers, and its available BBQ's, without always having to make the long trek to the deck at #80.

Steve and I want to thank you so much for helping us with the cottage. It looks so amazing and we know this would not have happened without your help.

Changing your home is a very personal thing. It was great to find someone who was willing to listen to us and take the best of our ideas and then proceed to exceed them. We are so happy with the finished product and look forward to having Kent over for dinner in our new oasis.

Within five minutes of walking around our property with you pointing out areas that could be improved, we knew we had the right landscape architect for our property.

On public appearances:

Your presentation was wonderful. The photos were superb showing the plants and trees in the various seasons, something that most presenters do not do and winter interest is so important ( especially this winter). The audience also likes to be given specific varieties to think about in their garden, your handout and talk showing the plant material did this admirably. Thank you for speaking at Canada Blooms. It was a pleasure to meet you.
