Your Garden Will Be Installed By Experts
Garden installation is more than just digging a hole and filling it with a plant. It can be a daunting task, especially in Toronto’s heavy clay soils and with larger, weighty plant material. First, the new garden area needs to be prepared. This could mean cutting new beds out of a lawn, removing and disposing of the existing sod, or recovering an overgrown existing garden bed, removing weeds, and existing perennials and overgrown shrubs. New soil will need to be added to the beds before plants can be installed. Once the planting is complete, gardens are mulched to help reduce weed growth and retain soil moisture.
Garden installation sometimes includes garden accents or focal points like rocks, stepping stones, statues or water features.
