Hardscapes provide structure for landscape and include solid elements such as wood, rock, and metal. They create an organized appearance and help define the function of spaces.
Homeowners who invest in a wooden deck enjoy a return on investment as high as 76%, more than just about any other residential renovation. We install decks of redwood, cedar, pressure-treated lumber, and composite decking and provide deck maintenance, including sealing, staining, and pressure washing.
Easy to maintain and less costly to install than a deck, patios are popular in both commercial and residential applications. We design and install patios using concrete, brick, flagstone, pavers, tile, and cut stone. With well-prepared ground and professional installation, patios can last 25 years or more with little upkeep.
Professionally engineered, well-built retaining walls reduce erosion and can turn a steep slope into a beautiful focal point in your landscape. We construct retaining walls and hardscapes out of concrete, natural stone, brick, or timbers. Services include site preparation and drainage installation. We can provide design services or work with your architect.
Fence Installation, Maintenance, Repair
Fencing adds curb appeal, security, and privacy while increasing property values. We install vinyl, wood, and chain-link fencing to meet your budget and desired aesthetics. We also provide maintenance services (e.g., wood staining, sealing, and pressure-washing) and fence repair.
Putting in a walkway involves much more than levelling the ground and laying some pavement. Creating a safe, attractive, durable walkway requires multiple layers and processes. We install all types of walkways and paths, including gravel, patio slabs, interlocking stone, natural stone, brick, poured concrete, wood, and asphalt.
We are experts at using concrete to add beauty and function to commercial and residential landscapes. From walls to walkways, smooth finishes to stamped textures, coloured concrete to colourful aggregates, our teams have the skill and experience to carry out your hardscaping plans.
Professionally installed edging can make a difference in how your landscape and hardscape efforts fare over time. Our teams install and maintain rigid and flexible frames, including wood, aluminum, steel, and composite plastics, or paver, stone, and brick materials.
From pea gravel to river stones and even boulders, decorative rock can add function, interest, and pizazz to your landscape. We first prep the site by removing weeds and grass and installing lining, underlayment, and edging, then finish with your selected rock. Carefully chosen plants can also be incorporated to create a unique landscape design.
Proper planter installation involves much more than setting out a few big pots. Commercial planters can be as much about arranging their space as they are about holding plants. Regardless of the purpose, our landscaping design and installation teams provide a turnkey installation, from plant selection to soil preparation and planting.
Softscapes are the materials that fill a landscape design, making it come alive. They include living elements like grass, flowers, shrubs, and trees.
To grow a lawn, you can plant seeds or install sod. Grass seed takes time, effort, patience, and good weather, while sod looks great from the very first day. With years of experience, we are experts in creating gorgeous, healthy sod lawns. Services include site prep (removing old grass, soil amendment, grading), sod installation, and sprinkler system installation.
Shrub Removal and Installation
When shrubbery has become overgrown or diseased, it must be thoroughly removed to allow replacement vegetation to thrive or cut back to allow healthy regrowth. We carefully remove shrubs, hedges, and small trees without damaging nearby landscaping and fixtures. Then we test and prep the soil and install healthy plants suitable for the growing climate zone.
Choosing the perfect native trees that fit your soil conditions and landscape needs is essential. How they are planted makes a big difference as well. Our certified arborists will guide the process of prepping your site and installing your trees. Our goal is to create instant curb appeal while ensuring that your trees have the start they need to grow and thrive.
Landscape reclamation is essential to creating increasingly sustainable urban settings. Instead of being underused or abandoned, previously developed sites can be given new life. Starting with soil sample testing and possible irrigation solutions, we create landscapes that thrive for years to come. Sustainability is our corporate focus and culture, and we are keenly interested and experienced in landscape reclamation.
Mulch may be small, but it is mighty! Mulch reduces erosion, resists weeds and disease, adds nutrients, helps retain moisture in the soil, and increases the visual appeal of your landscape. Nearly every landscape needs to be mulched on a regular schedule. Our skilled teams use organic, recycled mulch produced in our facility using non-diseased trees from cleared landscapes.
Spreading a thin layer of compost over your lawn or top dressing amends the soil while letting existing grass continue to grow. Topdressing is used to level lawns, improve the soil, renovate distressed areas, and help seeds germinate. The best time to top dress is just before the prime growing season, with simultaneous seeding.
Basework and Prep
A proper foundation ensures that your landscapes will last. Also important is planning for the proper flow of water, which can either be one of the most beneficial or destructive forces on a landscape.
Our professional grading services prepare outdoor spaces for plants, paths, patios, hardscaping, pools, stairs, and more. You’ll find our crews are skilled at getting the job done correctly ensuring proper flow of water to designated places in your landscape.
Nothing ruins a beautiful landscape faster than improper drainage. We build and maintain surface, slope, and subsurface drainage solutions, including swales, trench drains, French drains, perimeter drains, manholes, storm drains, and downspout drains for commercial and residential applications.
