What our customers are saying about us:

I am beyond thrilled with the work done by Rusty Shovel to transform my yard full of mud, rocks and weeds into a haven of peace and beauty. Each of my ideas was welcomed and carried out, starting with the installation of extra drainage, followed by the construction of a gazebo and privacy screens, the sourcing and planting of native plants, and creation of several garden beds and a stunning dry creek bed. The team completes everything with skill and precision, but also a great deal of creativity and artistry. I would not hesitate to recommend Rusty Shovel.

This is my first year contracting Rusty Shovel Landscaping and they have quickly risen to one of the top spots on my preferred contractors list. I have had wonderful feedback from my clients about their work on the Strata's property. They are professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend them for Strata landscaping contracts!

I've had the pleasure of working with Rusty Shovel on a couple projects. They've got a great crew that does fantastic work. Definitely worth a call before your next project.

We're proud to be locally owned and operated:

Matt Tufts, owner of Rusty Shovel lives and enjoys the beauty of Vancouver Island daily. I have always had a passion for the entire design and build process. I feel strongly that for a project to end well, each step of the process must be thought out thoroughly, laid out well, and built using time-tested methods. This means that customer consultation and design input are crucial to achieving a goal all are excited about and proud of! The design process can often take months of back and forth communication to get a design that meets the mark. Budget and desire must be weighed out and balanced to achieve beautiful results.
