A professional landscape design acts as a communication tool between the contractor and the homeowner. You know what to expect, we know what to create. Plain and simple!
Designers work with you to bring your vision to reality. They’re incredibly helpful when it comes to visualizing the end product. 3D renderings are a great visual aid tool as well. Contact us today to discuss the different design services we can offer you.

A variety of different maintenance tasks are offered throughout spring, summer and fall. Such tasks as spring and fall clean-up which may include perennial cut backs in both spring and fall. Leaf and perennial mulching, weed removal, bed edging and mulching.
Pruning evergreens in fall prevents damage from Ottawa’s inevitable snow load. We also prune small to medium trees and shrubs at the appropriate time of year to maximize their health and lifespan.
We have access to certified organic soil here in Ottawa. Top dressing adds missing or depleted nutrients into the existing soil. After all, it is living soil. This helps eliminate the use of synthetic fertilizers on your lawn.
Combined with overseeding, topdressing creates a balanced environment to enhance germination rates of any grass seed that is applied to your lawn areas.
Mulch is an attractive ground cover for gardens. It also prevents water loss from evaporation and discourages weed growth. 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 as they decompose. Ask us about our favourite mulch, Composted Pine Mulch, or CPM for short.
We’re 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 simply unsafe, we can refer you to a certified ISA arborist.
We never take risks when it comes to safety involving tree care. We promote growing trees, not removing them, but understand that some trees have to go for various reasons.
Pruning of your trees and shrubs is important to ensure proper health over their lifespan. We prune small to medium trees and shrubs at the appropriate time of year. Incorrect pruning methods can cause serious and permanent damage to the specimen and potentially even kill it.

Natural stone vegetable gardens ensure you are not consuming any harmful chemicals that you would typically find in a veggie garden constructed of cinder blocks and other toxic building products like pressure treated lumber.
Never replace rotting wood again, and don’t panic, its organic! And of course we can create them for ornamental landscape plants as well.

During spring clean-up, we cut back any standing perennials that require pruning, mulch or remove any leaves that may have been left from fall, and tidy up the garden edges, etc.
Fall clean-up is similar. Cutting back perennials that are susceptible to foliage diseases, leaf mulching and removal, bed edging, weeding, etc. We have custom plans for both services.
We know you get tons of leaves in the Ottawa area, and we’re ready to deal with them. We blow, rake, bag or remove the leaves upon request.
We recommend mulching at least some leaves and blowing them onto the garden or the lawn. They make excellent mulch and organic fertilizer. Mulching on site saves you disposal fees.
