Choose Your Theme
The beauty about landscaping is that practically any theme can be applied that appeals to your liking. The magic of professional landscapers can turn your boring backyard into an English garden complete with rambling roses and ivy-covered rock walls, or a Japanese garden consisting of bonsai and miniature plants poised along pebbled walkways leading to cedar bridges that span soothing pools alive with goldfish. Imagine a backyard that’s fit for the entire family, featuring plenty of space for the kids to run around and gorgeous garden beds and well-lit walkways. Picture yourself in suburban sanctuary that fosters tranquil reflection by installing comfortable private seating in a quiet space surrounded by the loveliest annuals. If you don’t have a theme in mind, our experts in horticulture and landscape design will help you realize the look you’re going for and come up with a theme based on your personal tastes. If you need inspiration, look no further than our gallery of past landscape projects to get a feel for what Canada’s Gardenland can do for your home.
Basically, the sky is the limit. There are only a few exceptions to fully realizing your imagined dream landscape. Your climate, for example, must be taken into consideration as certain plants will not tolerate extreme hot or cold conditions. The natural lay of your land, although adjustable to some degree, must also be taken into consideration. Other obstacles to landscaping are existing water and electrical lines and other man-made or natural objects which are necessary and cannot be altered. Toronto city ordinances or municipal bylaws may also have restrictions on your design.
Plan Your Design
Once you decide on the theme of your landscaping project, you can begin to plan what changes you want to make. This is like sketching out your main design before you begin to paint. In this process you will decide such things as what trees, fences, rocks, etc you want to remove as well as what walls, fountains, plants, etc you want to add. This step-by-step process guarantees that you approve of every detail and that there are no surprises.
Again, there is much more to this process than meets the eye. For example, soil types, excessive sun or shade, climate, and many other underlying criteria need to be taken into consideration in order to nurture and complete the perfect landscaping project. We’ll ensure that the colours and textures of your plants and flowers as well as their soil and light requirements will blend perfectly into the landscape to ensure that your garden lasts for years.
