Your Space, Your Style – Functional Value

Rita and Marc Klasa have lived in their Strathcona Park home since September, 2000. For about a decade, an old white fence separated them from their neighbours before it was agreed upon that it was time for an update.

Everyone decided over a cup of coffee that a cedar fence would look much nicer and steps were taken to make that happen.

But as is so often the case, one home project led to another. In building the fence, the Klasa’s were left with a hump in their backyard after removing an old planter box that housed a low-yielding raspberry plant. They also had a decrepit old deck that needed replacing, so Rita went to home shows and interviewed a few different landscape companies for inspiration. She had a budget in mind and it took a few years to find a company that could help realize her vision in an affordable manner.

“Assiniboine Lights and Landscapes showed up, measured everything right away and provided me with a quote that was reasonable,” remembers Rita.

Everyone worked together with the resources they had to create the cost-effective, easy-care landscape that the Klasa’s were looking for. Along the way, Rita says that she appreciated Assiniboine’s honest approach.

“Every time there were changes, there was a new estimate. Everything was black and white and nothing was hidden.”
