As mentioned in the “Our Process” section of our website, a design of some sort is almost always necessary. A professionally created landscape design acts as a communication tool between the contractor and the homeowner.
When a professional design is in place the homeowner knows exactly what to expect and the contractor knows exactly what is to be installed. With a design in place, both parties are sure to benefit as it eliminates any guess work.

It helps create the ideal conditions to establish new landscaping plants and protect their roots. Some mulches aid in soil rejuvenation by increasing the levels of organic matter. Ask us about our favourite mulch, Composted Pine Mulch, or CPM for short.
We are certified to operate chainsaws on a job site. We can remove small to medium size trees if they are in a safe location. If the tree is in an unsafe place, or in bad condition, we can refer you to a certified ISA arborist. We never take risks when it comes to safety around trees. We promote growing trees, not removing them, but understand that some trees have to go for various reasons.
