A home is not complete without a great landscape.  A well-designed landscape will not only add curb appeal, but will also raise your property’s value and help create a cohesive look with the home and the neighbourhood. Today, customers are focusing on their landscape as an important extension of their home.  With our 3D modeling capabilities, we can create photorealistic renderings of your home and add the landscaping. This allows you to see exactly how the whole package will look together.

Our design professionals also work in DynaSCAPE and AutoCAD, completing countless large and small-scale plans over our 25+ years. These plans can be implemented immediately or phased in over time; and we offer a rebate program on a portion of the design fees if we are hired to install the landscaping.

Whether you have an existing landscape in need of some rejuvenation or a new home in need of a garden, driveway and walkway layout – our experienced design team can work with you to create a plan that helps you achieve your goals.

Pools are the perfect device for cooling off in the hot summer heat. They also offer an opportunity for physical activity and can be the social hub of your home – generating a spot where friends and family can gather for endless hours of fun and interaction. Our swimming pool installation team can help you to design and install the pool of your dreams.

Nothing instantly creates a more relaxing and inviting feeling to a landscape than a water feature. Whether it be a pond, bubbling rock or a cascading waterfall, water features add unbeatable character and ambiance to a space.

Our expert carpenters and craftsmen can build decks, railings and fences using quality materials. Always open to new designs and creative expression, we can help you create the look and functionality you desire.

Landscaping_MS_OutdoorLighting

Lighting is a key element in extending the enjoyment and usability of your landscape. Low voltage lighting can help you do this in a very cost effective manner and help you use your landscape after the sun has gone down. Properly designed landscape lighting is the best way to enhance your landscape, especially in the winter months, as well as adding a security feature to your home. As Mike always says, “It’s the best bang for your buck!”

Landscaping_MS_IrrigationIf you like a nice lush green lawn, then irrigation is your best option. Turf needs water and with drier summers becoming more common, properly designed irrigation can give you a beautiful lawn with fewer weeds. The installation of irrigation in the landscape can also keep the plants in your gardens flourishing. An irrigation system can also save you money – allowing you to water when it is most effective for the grass and plants. Let our irrigation experts help you create a customized system to suit your needs.

With our busy lives today, sometimes the best way to ensure that our dream landscape looks its best is to have a regularly scheduled garden maintenance program.  Let us be responsible for this, as well as seasonal plantings, bulbs, planters and outdoor decor around your home. Our highly skilled horticulturalists offer these services, plus pruning, to maintain your landscape and protect your investment.
