Landscape Design Vancouver Island

Jaan Designs is an award winning landscape design and installation company serving Vancouver Island and surrounding gulf islands. We have developed a company that has been consistently recognized both provincially and nationally for our award winning residential landscape designs and installations.

Whether you have a new home with essentially a “Blank canvas” or you have an older garden which needs restoration, we can help. The first step is to consider the services a landscape designer can provide. Click here from more information on our residential landscape design services.

Another approach to land planning is Permaculture Design

Permaculture is an ethics based design system that looks at your landscape as a whole rather than pieces. Permaculture design is a holistic approach which will require less inputs (labour, water, fertilizers) and improve your ecosystem by building soil, mimicing natural systems and will make your landscape more resilient.  With climate change in full swing our landscapes need all the assistance they can get. There is no better way to drought proof your garden than implementing a permaculture design.
Our first step is always the same. One of our friendly and professional landscape designers will visit with you at your convenience.

We will discover and imagine with you, all the possibilities, and alternatives to be considered, until there is in your opinion, a meeting of minds, a shared understanding of what is in your minds eye. Or we will set about to create one that is as unique as you are. 
We will discuss budget and your investment for retaining our landscape design services.

Consideration, Choices and Approach

Subject to your agreement our landscape design team will create a comprehensive landscape or permaculture design and budget showing every little detail. There are no surprises. The next step is yours, to capture your dream and bring it to life.

Services we offer

We are totally committed to the highest standards within our industry and customer satisfaction, 100% of the time. Whether it is a landscape design for your front garden or a garden design for your whole property, our approach is the same. The foundation of our award winning landscaping design is driven by your imagination and desires in concert with the unique characteristics of your home and property.

Our motivation remains the immense pleasure and satisfaction brought to those we have served.


Wanting to grow your own food but don’t know where to start?

Jaan Designs offers Permaculture and Edible Landscape design as well as installation services. We don’t suggest you turn your front lawn into a corn field, what we will suggest is a wide range of trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants that will look great, need less care and with the added benefit of providing you with a harvest.  We can get you started.
