About Landscaping

Very simply put, Landscaping is the process of using softscape and hardscape design elements to enhance a landscape by making it look visually more appealing or to improve functionality or both.

Softscaping employs the use of "soft" horticultural (living plant) material to create "permanent landscape features" using grasses, trees, shrubs, and perennials and also temporary features using tender perennials and annuals. Along with adding colour, texture, and visual interest, softscaping is also used to help control erosion; create wind breaks and privacy; attract insects and wildlife to garden spaces; and clean pollution from the air we breath.

Hardscaping employs the use of "hard" (inanimate) materials to construct long-lasting "permanent landscape features" using various natural stone; man-made stone,  blocks, bricks and slabs; wood and wood composites; metals; and even glass. Driveways, retaining walls, walkways, patios, decks, arbours and fences are all examples of hardscaping used in landscapes with all offering various functionality and advantages

As you can see both softscaping and hardscaping are used to create what are termed permanent design features in a landscape.

The ultimate goal of good landscape design is to incorporate both softscapes and hardscapes while using, to best advantage, the design cornerstones of balance, unity, good proportion, variety and contrast. The ultimate goal and challenge of a professional Landscaper is to provide our clients with inspiring landscaping that fits your needs, site location, and budget. 


what we offer

It takes a committed team effort to take a landscaping project from initial customer vision to conceptualization and finally to the finished product.

To design and install a striking landscape design that best suits your needs, vision, site location, and budget requires:

  • Consultation and collaboration
  • Attention to detail
  • Creative vision
  • Quality products
  • Skilled workmanship
  • Team effort
  • And truly caring about a job done well

Good landscape design and installation can greatly increase your enjoyment of  your property and enhance its overall appearance and functionality. It also has a proven track record for adding valuable curb appeal to your property and increasing re-sale value.  

Great Landscaping is not synonymous with large, expensive, and elaborate designs - small well-designed and professionally installed landscapes can be  highly effective.

We offer practical solutions for problematic areas and great design suggestions for those seeking low-maintenance landscaping. 

We would be pleased to meet with you to discuss the scope of your project  and provide you with a - free of charge - quote.

And, should you wish to focus your time and effort on other activities, we offer full-service groundskeeping, including major spring, summer, and fall clean-ups. To promote healthy green turf we offer our Gold, Silver, or customized lawn care programs.
