We've never worked with another company that was so passionate about their craft. Whether it was putting in a new irrigation system, re-landscaping the front yard, or doing weekly maintenance, the quality and care of Pierre's work is first class.

I have been living in Victoria for 34 years and have undertaken a number of gardening projects over the past two years with Pierre Filisetti of Abacus Gardening and Landscaping. I have installed sprinklers in my front garden, redesigned a number of bedding areas and my pond and "weir" has been overhauled by Pierre. It is now running better then ever with easier maintenance. I am very happy with the results of all these projects and highly recommend Abacus. Pierre is easy to work with, is well experienced and knowledgeable in all aspects of landscape gardening, design and maintenance. His work is performed to a high standard, his invoicing is meticulous and transparent. Pierre is personally involved in all projects and expects an equally high standard of the employees that he takes on to work with him and train. Victoria is fortunate to have enticed Pierre from the interior.

Over the past four years while I have been working overseas, Pierre Filisetti of Abacus Landscaping has completed several landscaping and house maintenance jobs for our home at 2012 Romney Road in Victoria. The jobs have included landscaping design and planning, new landscaping, general yard clean up, planting of new trees and plants, pruning of existing trees and plants, and with regard to home maintenance, painting of house trim, removal of roof moss, cleaning of windows and cleanout of rain gutters. Our house and yard are important to us and we are very pleased with the return on our investment in ongoing landscaping and house maintenance using the expertise and services of Abacus Landscaping.

For each and every job, Pierre has earned our complete and unqualified satisfaction. Pierre has demonstrated exceptional knowledge and knowhow, good planning, hard work and attention to detail with an unshakable determination to do the job right with no shortcuts. Pierre brings to his work a broad and deep base of knowledge and experience, a well trained and hard working crew and proper and well maintained equipment. For example, Pierre discovered on his own and repaired a leak in our chimney while on the roof painting house trim. Pierre’s initiative and commitment to excellence ensures a job done to very high professional standards.

In our judgment, Pierre offers a very high level of value, given his competitive hourly rate, efficient and effective mode of operation and high quality work. Our experience is that Pierre stands behind his work. We would, and often do, without hesitation unconditionally recommend Abacus Landscaping to friends and neighbors for all kinds and sizes of landscaping and home maintenance jobs. We are sure everyone with our frame of mind will be as completely satisfied with Pierre’s work as we are. If you want the job done right at a fair price with a true commitment to customer satisfaction, Pierre is your man and Abacus Landscaping is your company. Feel free to come by and see Pierre’s work.

Abacus Gardening and Landscaping have been working for Winchester Galleries since 2009. I find them very organized, competent and meticulous, and they take great pride in their work. Abacus has been proactive in addressing potential problems in all aspects of garden maintenance. We have been very pleased with the results and have received many compliments on the maintenance of the properties. I highly recommend Abacus for anyone who expects a very high level of service.

We are always very pleased with the service provided by Pierre. The quality of workmanship, attention to detail, and pride that goes into each project is, without question, the best in Kamloops.

Pierre was recommended to us as a landscaper from some friends who had worked with him over the years, and contracting him to do build our new garden space was the smartest move we've made.  He works with a very sincere direct purpose - to make our space as good as it can possibly be, from the choice of plants, careful preparation and quality of the soil, to the inch-by-inch attention to detail and sustainability you don't see enough of these days.  We felt like he absolutely was committed to excellence in our landscaping project and we're very proud of the result - we think he is too, which makes us feel good!  Pierre is equal parts old-world craftsman and contemporary technician in the world of landscape design.  Every day people walk by our new house and ask, "Who did your garden?"   I wish I could say it was all me!
