We are very happy with the work! Thanks to you personally for your courtesy and general professionalism and to your crew for thier very hard and excellent work.


I contracted JPL in September 2008 to carry out the landscape construction of Heritage Hills Crossing (located at the South east corner of Baseline Rd. and Clover Bar Rd. in Sherwood Park, AB) for Clover Developments.

To date, John and Shaun have been outstanding contractors to work with.

When I contacted JPL, I was on a limited time budget. JPL responded by taking immediate action to satisfy my requests. John met with me within 24hours of our first contact and assured me that my requests would be honored with high priority.

They were consistently punctual to the job site and to all of our meetings. Both gentlemen were able to answer all of my questions and in foreseeing discrepancies in the architectural blueprints, they came to me with several possible economical solutions to choose from.


I am so pleased with the landscaping that Johnny Paycheck Landscaping did for me. They implemented a landscape design done by Earthworm designs. When I first contacted them, they returned my call promptly and came to give me an estimate soon after. This is a team of very efficient workers. They completed the job in a timely fashion. They were easy to talk to and we had good discussions about the work when necessary. Each morning they arrived and began to work so quietly that I didn't notice they were there! It was a pleasure to have such a pleasant group of fellows working on the project and I really appreciated the way they cleaned up the area at the end of each day.


We recently had our second home landscape job completed by JPL. Couldn't be happier with the project, professionalism and all around good bunch of folks at JPL. Thanks again for another beautiful project!

Paul, Jen and Jason

From beginning to end, JPL were a very reliable, professional and courteous group to deal with. They offered as much assistance as we needed in the design of our yard, recommending what trees and shrubs would be ideal in our climate and in our particular yard, as well as features that would creatively accent our home. While working on our yard, they were very conscious of maintaining cleanliness, both on our property and that of our neighbors. All of their staff were prompt and courteous when attending to any of our requests and they were always mindful that they were on someone else's property, a trait that seems to be lost on many contractors these days. Upon completion of their work, they did a thorough walkthrough with us and worked diligently to address any minor issues that remained and gave us simple instructions to promote the healthy upkeep of our lawn, trees and shrubs. On top of that, the two year guarantee on their product goes a long way in leaving us with peace of mind that we chose the right company to do our landscaping. We would highly recommend JPL to anyone, no matter how large or small the project.

Cheers, and thanks again for the great work. We wish you all the best!

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the incredible job you and your team did in replacing our lawn and removing our old shrubs. From the first moment we met you, to the completion of the job, everything that your company did was a demonstration of a firm that believes in, and delivers customer satisfaction at a level that is bound to impress your customer. You were meticulous in everything you did and the clean up afterwards left our area better than when you started! Our new lawn is spectacular...a healthy carpet of green. Thanks again for your help in giving our front yard some well deserved TLC!


With great pleasure, we would like to extend a letter of recommendation for Johnny Paycheck Landscaping about the installation of a Pondless Pond on our backyard in July 2009.

Our original plan and development in the backyard was to create a small pond and waterfall. How lucky we were to chose Johnny Paycheck Landscaping!! We found that they provided the most reasonable quote, time expectation, and willingness to optimize our existing work compared to other companies we sourced that were either inflexible, would not take on such a project, nor would recycle material. This also compared exceptionally well as we considered building the water feature ourselves.

On the first day of renovation and construction, it was discovered that a MASSIVE ant colony had infested our pond area. Rather than avoiding the issue, and continuing on with the project (as we likely would have never known the magnitude of the ants nest by covering it with a pond feature) they addressed the problem in a fashion that was reasonable and safe for our pets and backyard garden environment. While it delayed our initial project schedule timelines, a new expectation was set to the completion date once the problem was addressed.

As for the pond feature, for the small space and the long term plans for our plants and d├ęcor, Johnny Paycheck Landscaping achieved what we had envisioned (and more!) with attention to sound, sight and esthetic quality that we discussed and expected. The feature is now a focal point of our backyard, and we look forward to developing the plant and bird life around this fantastic sound and visual centerpiece.

They exceeded our standard of safety, quality, responsiveness and cleanliness.

We would recommend Johnny Paycheck Landscaping for large or small projects.

Best Regards,



While I was in the process of moving into my new home, I noticed a crew of efficient looking landscapers working close by.

After observing their excellent work ethic and noticing that the name of the company was Johnny Paycheck, I was enticed to investigate this crew and company further. I mean wasn't the country singer of the same name famous for the song 'Take This Job and Shove It"? I was interested and entertained.

After introducing myself to the crew and later meeting with them to discuss design concepts, it became obvious to me that these were professionals.

The hard work and timely effort in which the Johnny Paycheck Inc. landscaping crew gave to the project has produced the backyard I envisioned when I moved here. Within 30 days they were able to take my backyard from rough grade to finished product.

I have no hesitation in recommending the Johnny Paycheck Inc. landscaping crew and I will continue to use their services as the need arises.



Bonnie & Don

We Appreciated:

Your willingness to work within our budget

Your Knowledge and Professionalism

The camaraderie displayed by your team

That our yard was cleaned and beautiful when you left

That after 2 severe storms, our basement is still dry!

Thank you so much for your hard work on our yard.

Brian & Jessica

Our experience with JPL was amazing! From the initial quote when we met John, we were impressed with his honest upbeat attitude and his fair prices. When it came time to start, John was so accommodating to all our design vision and helped us to come up with ideas where we lacked knowledge. John and his crew were super friendly and courteous at all times. They never got upset when we changed our minds on a few things, just said 'it's no problem, we want you to be happy". The site was cleaned up at the end of each and every day. Since the completion of our yard several neighbours have already express how impressed they are and have asked for John's number for their yard. All in all, I can't express enough how great an experience it was to work with a team with such a professional attitude and a happy demeaner.

John, Dave and their crew remodeled our 20 year old backyard spring 2010.

We spoke with a number of landscape companies and chose JPL Earthworks based on their design (which incorporated our ideas - but took them to the next level) and because of John and Dave's professional approach to the project.

We were not dissapointed. The project began ahead of schedule and even with weather issues progressed steadily, their crew was on-site every day when the weather cooperated. As we are in an older neighborhood, we wanted to disturb our neighbors as little as possible, this was never an issue. Neighbors complemented them on how clean the worksite was after the day was done.

John was very willing to make changes on the fly and work with our vision for the project. Attention to detail was excellent.

The crew was very professional, each with their areas of expertise and all provided great ideas along the way.

JPL has been excellent in followup and has reponded promptly to the minor issues that will always crop up in a project of this size.

The end result is 'the backyard of our dreams", which is what John promised at the start!

Thank you JPL Earthworks.

My husband and I had our landscaping done in June 2011 and we couldn't be happier! The staff at JPL have an amazing work ethic. They are professional, courteous ,accomodating and very respectful. They go above and beyond what is expected to ensure their work maintains its integrity and that our yard not only looks beautiful now but will just get better with time! From our initial consultation with John to the finishing of this project, he and his staff have been a pleasure to work with and we would most definitely recommend them. They truly do stand by their motto 'We guarantee you will love your yard".


John and Shaun of Johnny Paycheck Landscaping landscaped my yard in September 2007. Although I am very busy and do not have much time to spend outside, I always take the opportunity to open my curtains and enjoy my beautiful yard while eating my meals.

I spent a few months searching for landscapers before I signed up with Johnny Paycheck. They were punctual to our meetings and receptive to all of my ideas. When their team came to the job site, they were professional, safe, and extremely hard working. I am positive that my due diligence paid off!

Ian and Kim

We were sure right from our first meeting with John and Shaun that JPL would be the company to do our landscaping. They came prepared, were courteous and professional. JPL took our two dimensional drawing and made it a three dimensional reality with timely and appropriate suggestions for our budget and design.

Our backyard isn't big but yet the way it is landscaped it really feels like it is. We were very excited to see the finished project and extremely pleased with the work and workmanship. We have had endless compliments on our landscaping. In fact, on countless occasions we would come home to people checking out our backyard and asking who did such a phenomenal job. Not having a fence at the time really made our yard a conversation piece. There is no doubt in our minds that JPL will be doing the landscaping for our next home!

Thanks guys! It was a real pleasure working with you.

We love our new backyard!!! Johnny Paycheck Landscaping worked with us on a plan and worked with our family dynamic to give us a backyard that is not only low maintenance but looks amazing!!! They gave helpful suggestions and expert advice about plants and how to best maintain our new landscape. They are a high energy respectful team. I highly recommend them to anyone considering a landscape change!

We first heard the name Johnny Paycheck Landscaping in 2007 from our friend Dennis. He was so pleased with his new stone patio that he insisted on showing it to us.

We liked it too, and in spring 2008 we contacted John and Shaun. They were very open to our design suggestions and after a couple of brief meetings we had preliminary drawings.

They started in May 2008. After a week of 10 - 12 hour days we had a beautiful stone patio with 2 semi-circles, just like we wanted.

Today, after the first winter it looks exactly as perfect as on the day it was completed.

Now it's our turn and pleasure to recommend Johnny Paycheck Landscaping to our friends.

Thank you guys, well done!

Shaun, John, Dave Tess, Trevor, Mitch & any others I missed on your team,

It was a pleasure to have all of you working on hard on my yard, it may not have been a "big" job but to me it was. The yard looks great and your hard work was much appreciated. Everyone was curtious and hard working. Tess & Mitch did a great job of the side by the garage digging it up by hand! Trevor gave me some good advice on my roses & planting/watering the grass, which I have kept up, every morning & evening. I hope to see some soon. And John was very appreciative of getting the job which in these days, most contractors don't give a hoot,

Shaun was very patient with me and even after going with my minimum list and not my big wish list he didn't seem to mind.

With all this I would love to promote you with a sign on my yard (If you have) , and would be more than willing to spread nothing but good things about your entire team..

Please make sure that all get to see this email.

Thank you so much!
