Are you insured?
You bet! If you need a copy of our insurance certificate, please let us know. We use a great insurance broker and they will supply whatever documents you require.
Do you use fertilizers?
Yes- if necessary. We prefer to evaluate the health of the turf and landscape plants to determine what nutrients requirements they need. Ideally, we use materials such as composts to "supply" the nutrients required. Often, soil management is all that is needed. In some circumstances, more "potent" fertilizers are required. We prefer to use naturally sourced fertilizers - this must be determined on a case-by-case basis.
Do you use pesticides
No. In fact, we prefer to maintain the health of all of the landscape plants (including turf grass) to resist the impact of disease, insects and weeds. Currently, if required, we use a licensed pesticide application company to treat any acute problems our clients may have. To be honest, we can usually solve most issues our clients have with intelligence and patience. Currently we are working to be licensed by the Ontario Government to be allowed to apply natural pesticides. We are focusing our business only in the use of natural and environmentally safe pesticides.
