Stone Driveway & Border
Instead of black asphalt we can make your driveway stand out with a flagstone or interlock driveway. We dig a deep foundation which means it will withstand the weight of your vehicles being parked and remain uniform even after many years of the Ottawa winter. Finish it off with a border of interlock, knee wall or brick pillars. We can customize the type of stone, the colour, and even the tessellation pattern. Incorporate
A front patio seating area that seamlessly flows into a matching walkway.
Armour stone Walkway and Steps
Armour stone is used to give lasting character to the frontage. It is durable and provides beauty to the walkway and front entrance. It can create walls to increase security and privacy. Because of their size, armour stones are useful in building steps into a hill, connecting leveled patios, or simply as a striking accent piece. A cubic foot of armour stone can weigh up to 200 pounds but don’t worry because we have the excavating equipment to move these with ease!
Plantings, Greenery and Mulch
Having beautiful blooming flowers and lush greenery is refreshing and relaxing, especially when outdoors enjoying the summer weather. With the right choice of plants and flowers, you will be in a position to add colour, elevation, fragrance, privacy and texture. Mulch can be used to give a different texture accent and to improve the architectural look of your property. Our knowledgeable and experienced staff will help in selecting the right plants, flowers and kind of mulch to match the design and architecture of the home. Just see how the gardens transformed these areas.
Outdoor lighting will focus attention on prominent features of your home/landscaping and can provide a great and exciting look. It provides added security by illuminating stairs, hazards and deterring wanderers. It allows you to enjoy your landscaping well after the sun has gone down, and with modern LED technology your lighting will not attract any bugs. Outdoor lighting is a premium feature since electricity needs to be run but when installing a new patio surface it becomes much more affordable since the foundation is exposed. We can budget premium features like in ground lighting in our packages because of the experience and expertise we have.
Raised Gardens with retaining wall
If you have a slope or grade in your yard then a retaining wall if the perfect feature to provide beauty to an uneven surface. This structure will hold back soil and provide an elevated surface for potted plants or decorations. Retaining walls are under considerable pressure and need to be built strong to withstand heavy loads and moisture. Interlocking concrete blocks are the most affordable option and is durable against the Ottawa winters. Retaining walls provide a great opportunity to build a garden. Depending on your design choice we can fill it with soil or mulch and help choose plants that will flourish in our climate.
Front Steps and Landing
Updating the front entrance can be one of the best ways to create a distinct look to your home, as well as add considerable value. Imagine coming home from work and forgetting all the stress as you now have a beautiful low maintenance entrance to look forward to coming home to. A nice patio will be an extension of you foyer. It provides a place to enjoy a book on a nice day, an area to remove your shoes and a focal point to place decorations and plants.
