Our environmentally-friendly, high-powered steamer system instantly knocks down young weeds growing in hard surfaces such as driveways and walkways. Scalding steam kills the plant from the roots up. Two applications are necessary to ensure maximum results.
Garden Pest Control
We’ll create an inviting habitat for pest-controlling insects with beneficial plants that enlists the right soldiers to fight these pests on the front lines of your garden
Just one ladybug will eat 2,400 aphids in its lifespan. Ladybugs also feast on mites and other insects that feed on various plants. Damsel bugs feed on aphids, small caterpillars, leafhoppers, thrips, and other pesky pests. The nocturnal ground beetle is a ferocious predator of slugs, snails, cutworms, and cabbage maggots. One beetle larva can eat more than 50 caterpillars. These along with many other beneficial insects can be attracted to control the pests that wreak havoc in your gardens.

Organic Mosquito Spray
Mosquitoes are 10,000 times more sensitive than humans. Their life-cycle normally takes place over a number of weeks and within an area of 100 sq. yds. We spray our all organic spray on your trees, shrubs, gardens, lawns, docks, decks, and any low lying wet areas near your outdoor living spaces. As this product is all organic there is no harm to children, adults, or your pets. No need to worry about a lingering smell — the odour will dissipate in about 4-5 hours.
Generally active at night, deer enter your property for one reason only — to eat — and they do their work efficiently and with passion. The regions where many people now live were once wild areas where deer roamed freely, their populations controlled by predators like wolves. As the human presence increased, the deer have found themselves with less grazing land and fewer predators. The urge to survive drives them to seek edibles wherever they can – YOUR GARDEN!
Our spray is a strong scented repellent spray that is all organic and a simple and humane method to repel deer.
Almost anything can be grown in a container – annuals, perennials, and vegetables. We offer container gardening for your docks, decks, and patios. Container gardening has been around for hundreds of years, and growing in small spaces is now the fastest growing sector of the garden scene. Containers can be used on your patios to provide excellent decoration around tables and chairs, along with dock boxes, window planters, deck pots, and hanging baskets.
Containers come in all different shapes, sizes, and colours. The options for containers are endless!
Art can do something that plants alone cannot. It creates a ‘there’ there. Art can feature contemporary abstract sculptures as well as humorous human figures, supersized bugs, garden arches, trellis and re-purposed objects.
Sculptures made of metal, wood, cement, clay or any other weather proof material can be exceptional show pieces. A collection of favourite items can create interesting sculptural pieces.
Re-purposed objects can be anything that appeals to you. These can include any household items, old farm equipment, cleaned tree roots, stumps, dishes, gazing ball, garden ball made and decorated just for you, and many different unique ways to control eavestrough runoff.
Take a chance and place something unexpected in a hidden nook along a garden path, mass a collection of ordinary objects to increase their significance, strategically place a single sculpture to create a refined focal point. Attract the eye and the feet will follow!
