ABOUT US

Toronto’s Landscaping Company

START YOUR PROJECT >

Our city has its share of experienced landscape companies. Toronto’s urban residents in Lawrence Park, Rosedale, Forest Hill, North Toronto, Bridle Path and Hoggs Hollow contract businesses like ours to perform a huge variety of specialized and non-specialized tasks on their properties. But not all of these Toronto landscaping companies do their landscape design & construction jobs with the level of care that our team does.

Landscaping allows homeowners like you to put a personal stamp on the green space you see most, and since it is so personal, it makes sense for you to work very closely with the landscaping company that you choose. To ensure we get it right, we listen to your story – we get to know our customers on a personal level. And we want you to know us too.

To Meet Your Needs

Toronto is an incredibly diverse city with equally diverse landscaping needs. Our commitment to employee education and training means we stand out among landscape companies. Toronto can contact us by phone or email today to get started.

Why Choose Us?

Many of our clients choose us because they’ve been disappointed by other garden care providers.

They’ve been frustrated by:

  • crews that don’t show up when they say they will (if at all)
  • companies that don’t do everything they promise to do
  • poorly trained workers who make expensive mistakes
  • dealing with multiple contractors instead of just one
  • landscape designers who disregard your preferences
  • surly customer service
  • lack of communication
  • poor attention to detail
  • seasonal displays that look like everyone else’s
  • irrigation systems that drown plants and damage building foundations
  • companies that disappear

We make it easy to have a beautiful garden – one that’s healthier and looks better year after year. Our people are experts who listen to what you want and respond to requests promptly. They’ll keep you informed, show up when they say they will, and will clean up after themselves properly. You’ll never have to deal with different landscaping companies and conflicting schedules. They’ll handle everything for you from start to finish, and will take just as much pride in the end result as you will.

The Lawrence Park Philosophy

“I sincerely believe that attitude and effort trump all. You can be the best at what you do, but what really differentiates you is your attitude and the effort that you put into taking care of your clients. You have to give them an experience that’s customized and personal… It’s this philosophy and approach that have made us who we are today.”
Craig Hutchinson, President

  • If you decide you want to proceed, you’ll sign a contract and pay a deposit to cover the preparation of a comprehensive landscape design plan. For small projects involving only softscaping (i.e., plant material), free-hand drawings (not to scale) may suffice. A full plan will include a CAD based proposal which is to scale and includes a proposed plant photo guide.
  • Once the drawings and quote for executing the plan are done, your designer will contact you again to arrange a time to present their landscaping concept, explain their drawings, answer questions and discuss any adjustments you’d like to make.
  • If adjustments are required, they’ll return with revised drawings and a new timeline and quote (for the final work to begin, another deposit and contract will be required).
  • After that, you can relax because we’ll take it from there. You won’t have to deal with any of the scheduling headaches that come from dealing with multiple landscaping companies. Nor will you have to wait around for contractors to show up—and then don’t. Your Lawrence Park team will handle everything for you while you watch your beautiful new garden take shape.

    Special Interest Maintenance – Tropical Paradise with Artificial Turf

    This property in mid-town Toronto conjures up the views, scents and colours of a Tropical Paradise. The Client entertains in a poolside setting with many tropical plants to maintain like Agapanthus, Hibiscus, Bouganvilleas and Birds of Paradise.

    The frustration of dense shade led to the installation of Artificial Turf in Front and Poolside, which, although not needing to be cut, does need to be kept clean and free of debris. The appearance of natural turf is achieved by rolling the mowers over it to create the “lines” of fresh-cut grass. The root systems and general health of the mature Beech and Maples are maintained in these unusual conditions.

    The back Gardens are afforded plenty of privacy by perimeter hedges and lots of lush gardens of Annuals and Perennials.

    awards of excellence winner

    Residential Construction – $25 – 50k Outdoor Family Room

    The existing back yard had a patio in place composed of large flagstone. However, the patio was incorrectly laid on pea gravel and as a result, the stones shifted out of place. Drainage issues were a problem with the home, and the original 1960ʼs installation was dated and crumbling. River rock embedded in concrete had to be removed, as well as elevation changes that were compounding the drainage problems.

    The house has a very unique style that we were able to work with when designing the new landscape. The patio was lifted and new gravel base materials were added, the existing flagstone was re-used and additional stone added to enlarge the patio. A rectangular banding pattern was used to add definition. A wooden Arbor was installed to support the existing mature Wisteria Vine.

    The previous entryway to the back yard was narrow and awkward. Interlocking brick was installed at the side of the house for ease of access and storage. The Arbor, and widened entranceway to the back helped to create a much more appealing and functional entranceway into the back garden. All plant materials had to be very shade tolerant, and some native species were used.

    awards of excellence winner

    Balcony Or Container Gardens – Family-style Seasonal Urn Displays

    The client is very interested in all aspects of her landscape and allows our designers the opportunity to make suggestions or changes and to introduce the unusual. The client also requested that our designers keep in mind her young family and their friends when installing the seasonal displays. Each installation should reflect the changing seasons and complement the house and the neighbourhood.
