All good things come to an end

Dear friends,

This has been a tumultuous time for all of us. It feels as though everything around us has been transformed over the past 18 months. And that has prompted many people to consider what else they would like to change.

I’m one of those people. And so, after a great deal of soul-searching, I’ve decided that the time has come to close Water’s Edge Landscaping and retire.

Wrestling with this decision has been an emotional journey. I’ve loved my work at Water’s Edge – first as an employee, and then as the owner. I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside some amazing people, to share the journey as we work to transform and maintain some of Muskoka’s most gorgeous properties. Many of you have become friends, and I will miss our conversations.

It feels a little bizarre and strange to contemplate stepping away from work. But I am looking forward to the next big chapter of my life.

While I am describing this as “retirement,” I’m not actually going to be ceasing to work. I own a small greenhouse and I’m a certified herbalist and a designer of decorations for all occasions. Closing Water’s Edge Landscaping will allow me to focus my energies on those ventures, which I am looking forward to immensely.

I thank all of you for your support, patronage, and assistance over the years, particularly the last couple of seasons, which have been supremely challenging. While the phone lines and the website are being shut down, I will still be reachable via email.

As we enter into a new year, I wish each of you the very best for 2022 and for many years to come.

Warm regards,
