We Provide Appealing Alternatives to Traditional Lawns

Cost-effective and environmentally-conscious solutions

A rich lawn of green grass is certainly beautiful, but maintaining a healthy lawn demands a healthy amount of time and costly treatments. From watering your luscious grass to spending hours mowing it, a grass lawn demands your attention. Not to mention, most property owners need to use harmful pesticides and fertilizers to keep grass looking great, causing a ripple effect of negative consequences for the environment. This issue is further complicated by the province-wide pesticide bans enacted in 2012.

Fortunately, there are a number of lawn alternative options that require no chemical treatments and have much lower water needs. Sometimes referred to as "natural landscaping" or "xeriscaping," lawn alternative landscaping often includes elements like decorative grasses, flower and shrub beds, and mulch.

Exploring the Advantages of Lawn Alternatives

A Low Cost Alternative

Save money and time with a beautiful landscape that can increase your curb appeal, while simultaneously reducing maintenance needs. Say goodbye to long landscaping sessions every weekend and enjoy the appeal of a natural landscape that looks fantastic throughout the year.

Versatile and Innovative

Lawn alternative landscapes can easily be scaled to fit the size constraints of any lawn. Furthermore, the many options available to explore make it possible to tailor the plan of the landscape to fit nearly any design sensibility. From colourful gardens to subdued shrub beds with groundcovers, an endless array of factors can influence the look of the final design.

Non-toxic Weed Control

Pesticides are no longer a necessity for your yard with a lawn alternative landscape. Groundcovers spread across the surface of the earth without growing upwards, in turn choking out weeds that could otherwise try to rise up. Mulch plantings can also help keep weeds under control.
