Fantastic personality, educated and informed perspective are what I first saw from Michael. Working with Terra Luma Design over the past 8 years and having seen the myriad of creative, practical and unique creations it is no wonder that he is sort by an elite clientele.

The most valuable aspect of Terra Luma is the Michael’s passion for the work and clients that is evident in the trades he chooses to work with and quality of work delivered.

Leandross Henderlin, LJH Construction Inc

I recently moved into an apartment in Vancouver, BC. I feel very lucky that Michael Howell of Terra Luma Design was referred to me. Once I met Michael it was obvious he is a very professional, talented and gifted landscape designer. My terrace already had greenery in planters and large pots, but it is now an extension of my apartment, and Michael created a place with color, style, fun and pizazz! With his suggestions and design, it is an area where our family and friends can enjoy a lot of time. Michael also made suggestions for my front balcony and a sun room, and these areas are also lovely now.

Michael’s prices are very reasonable, and his associates are professional, friendly and were very careful whenever entering my home. It is obvious that Michael loves his work, and is particular who he choses for vendors and suppliers.

I have worked with many contractors over the years, and Michael is one of the best. He is timely, efficient, cost-effective, and he makes me laugh. I can’t wait to work with him again, and plan to ask him to add some holiday magic to our apartment this November/December.

I highly recommend Michael Howell of Terra Luma Design

Barbara Ross, San Diego, California

Michael Howell of Terra Luma Design was highly recommended to us by an architect about ten years ago and we are so grateful that we asked. He is by far our favourite professional that we have worked with over the years and here is why:

We still, 10 years later, love the design he created for us. We wanted low maintenance and that is what we got but it was not at the expense of the design. It’s beautiful and we still get compliments. In fact, our yard has won a Community in Bloom Streetscape Award in 2017 and 2018.
He is able to source rare and unusual plants which we love.

He is so very pleasant to work with.
He is very knowledgeable about plants and design and clearly loves what he does.
I would recommend Michael and Terra Luma Design in a heartbeat to anyone wanting a new design or an upgrade in an outdoor space.
