Our installation team serves Greater Victoria & the Saanich Peninsula.
This service is for the home gardener who needs some experienced, outside eyes to take their garden to the next level. Our process involves a short online survey, a site visit, follow up recommendations & resources to get you pointed in the right direction.
For a full landscape renovation, a design plan can save time and money over the course of the project. We leverage our experience and training in ecological and edible landscape design to create a beautiful, cohesive and inter-connected space. We start with a detailed goals survey & a site assessment.
Time to transform! We integrate natural stone, ponds, ferro-cement planters, micro-patios, trellises, arbors, fruit trees, berry bushes, vegetables, herbs, water collection, and even chickens into beautiful, productive landscapes that nourish the belly and soul.
We build high-quality custom-sized raised beds from a variety of materials, including round logs; rough milled timber; galvalume & ferro-cement. These beautiful structures can include built-in trellis' and deer protection; or seating & benches for lounging.
Slow, spread, sink & store water! With the exception of around building foundations, we aim to get rainfall into ground where it belongs. Our whole systems approach balances the needs for both drainage and water retention to create beautiful seasonal creeks, ephemeral ponds and rain gardens.
Our professionally trained horticulturalists can prune, train and rejuvenate your trees with summer & winter pruning. We also include organic probiotic sprays and yearly pest/disease management. We don't do 'one-offs' however, as multiple years of summer & winter pruning are needed for long-term tree health.
To get started, all projects start with an email and/or a phone call. We offer free phone consultation to talk about your project and see if we are a good fit.
Our process always starts with a clear understanding of your context and goals. There is no limit to what can be done on the landscape, but your context will set some crucial design parameters for us to work within.
It is a good idea to consider your project goals and budget early on. Ask yourself,"what needs to be improved as a result of this project?" and
"how much am I willing to invest over the next year to meet my goals?"
Few people like discussing money, but let's do it.
Project estimates and billing work on an 'hourly-rate' + materials basis. That can vary between $55 - $125 / hr depending on the service-type being delivered (ranging from landscape horticulture to design planning to small machine operators).
Each project is unique. If we are a good fit, we will propose a way forward based on your context & budget.
By hiring our business, you are investing in the success of your project, a healthier ecosystem, a vibrant 'foodshed', and a regenerative local economy.
We are licensed and insured, including $3M liability insurance, and in good standing with WorkSafeBC.
