CLIENT FEEDBACK AND PEER RECOGNITION
Our office has worked with Bianca Bodley and the Biophilia Collective for two years, from small clean-slate single family projects to large BC Housing projects located on sensitive environmental waterways. I appreciate how their collaboration skills, technical knowledge and authentic design vision are very well balanced. They efficiently bundle these three qualities into particularly succinct and clear drawings, delivered faster than expected. Bianca and the Biophilia Collective are cognizant of trends in landscape design, so they can avoid them. Instead, they are advocates for site-specific, tactile and textured landscapes that are designed for the present and the future.

Our office was brought to life with our vibrant new plant wall! Bianca, Lindsey and the Biophilia team were easy and professional to work with, brought great ideas but also listened to our wants and needs for the space. They also gave clear and helpful instruction on how to care and maintain the different plants we chose. We would highly recommend their services and look forward to working with them again!
It was very good to have Bianca working on our yard. She brought interesting ideas and gardening knowledge for Victoria to the design. Her main subcontractors, Dan and Andrew brought great work ethic , techniques and experience to the job. When the project faced challenges with construction delays she worked hard to keep work going and face a difficult subcontractor. All interactions with Bianca were honest and thoughtful.
Had the pleasure of working with Bianca and Lindsay on a living wall project. The result was beautiful and the design and instal was seamless. The support after was great. Great team. These ladies are pros!
We hired Biophilia to design a landscape that would complement and enhance a new build; it was a significant part of our overall budget and project. There were various elements and sub-contractors to coordinate, including two major water features and green roofs and a rock wall. Bianca was professional, creative and responsive to concerns and challenges as they arose, inevitable with the complexity of the job and the various personnel. She was very responsive to our design input and executed our vision beautifully. Both she and Lindsey have been very responsive in follow-up, troubleshooting and design adjustments in this year after the installation. Since it was a unique design. there was much re-visiting and tweaking of particular elements; Lindsey committed to doing what was necessary to address any challenges efficiently and effectively. Biophilia did a beautiful job and we are delighted with the outcome.
My wife and I have had the pleasure of working with Bianca and Lindsay over the past year on a custom residential project for a new home for our growing family in Victoria, BC.
Their skill in formulating a design which responds to the site and the architecture of the home and also incorporates hard and soft landscape features which are totally in sync with how we hope to live in the new space has astounded us from day one. Further, as we transition into implementation (where Biophilia is acting as project manager), the benefit of having the design knowledge inform installation at a deep level is incredibly valuable in ensuring a high quality outcome and doing so within budget parameters.
Their attention to detail, patience in walking us through options, and the emotional intelligence they’ve demonstrated in understanding our project objectives truly differentiates them from others in their field whom I have worked with in the past.
Beyond their considerable technical skill, they are also lovely people who are a pleasure to work with. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

From concept to completion it was a pleasure to work with Bianca and her Biophilia team. She understood the project immediately and set to work sketching ideas on the spot. Her install team is fantastic – they show up each day and on time. Bianca is a efficient and talented problem solver and we look forward to enjoying our meadow garden for many years.

Bianca is a true professional. We have used her company for a number of years and each time we are inspired by their creativity, integrity, and delivery!
We could not give a higher recommendation to landscape design and implementation.

We have worked closely on a number of projects with Biophilia now. They are very easy to communicate with, timely, and produce a beautiful product. We highly recommend them for all your landscape design and installation needs.

Working with Bianca on the design and rejuvenation of our classic garden (phase 1) was a treat from start to finish. Her personable and professional approach won us over at our first meeting. And her enthusiasm for the project as it progressed, made the whole process a delight. Her drawings and designs, as well as suggestions on plantings, hardscape design, front pathway and sundial sculpture, perfectly complemented our 100 year old restored heritage home. We so appreciate her guidance and the diligent work of her trusted landscaper and stonemason. We are eager to start phase 2 this spring. Bianca has already completed the designs for the backyard garden beds, natural privacy screens, stacked veggie beds, and the side yard entertaining/seating area….we can’t wait to see the transformation! Thanks Bianca

We have worked with Biophilia for two projects now and have always been impressed with the results. Their designs are beautiful and sustainable, and projects are completed on time and on budget. I plan to continue working with Bianca and crew for our future projects, and to recommend them to others.
