If you live in Nanaimo, Duncan, Victoria or somewhere in between AND your lawn is currently covered with moss, weeds or other undesirables – you’ll need a renovation to get things back on track.  Most renovations involve a vicious power-raking (moss removal), core aeration, weed removal followed by seeding, topdressing and our lush green natural fertilizer!  Most lawns will take at least a full season to recover their Lush factor again.  Don’t want to wait a full season?  We recommend a full lawn replacement capped off with our Lush green seed or Sod!

Check out some of our 2016 Reno crew!  What a nice bunch of fellas!

Aerating releases your soil compaction, promotes better drainage and most importantly enables the air, water and nutrients to become accessible in your soil.

Moss killer is a waste of time and money. Best to remove it ALL to give your new grass remove to breathe!

Sometimes a lawn is too weed or moss covered and its best to start fresh!

Once our excavators have removed your existing lawn and topsoil we bring in the Island’s best super-soil and sod and presto! You have a park.

“I like the way they always notify me the time and date of their arrival, and their prompt replies to emails. Our garden is difficult being on a slope but Dorothea carefully weeded the worst spots. The company will also come more or less hours per month and that jibes with nature who has fast and slow months too. Knowledgeable and thorough, hardworking and pleasant staff, prompt to arrive. Devised a plan for a sustainable landscape on a difficult site. Communicative as well. 10/10! Marion,Victoria

 

They are doing a great job and to date the staff are very accommodating in the process of caring for our gardens and shrubbery.” Sherwood House, Duncan.

 

“It was so nice to come home from work and see how clean and tidy everything looked after a good pruning.” Diane, Dunan.

 

“Many thanks for the outstanding work you did to bring everything together and plant our new garden. It was a big job on a ten acre property and, at every step, you were gold standard – listening closely to the look and feel we wanted to achieve, coming up with just the right solutions, resourcefully searching out hard-to-find plants, and doing a first rate job on installation. All that from wonderfully positive people who are passionate about what you do and an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you again and we look forward to future projects together.” Peter & Mia Lanyon, Cedar.

Hedges

 

“The whole process from start to finish was efficient, and hassle free. The hedge looks great. Thank you. Janice, Duncan.  10/10!”

 

“Quick response time to initial request. Excellent follow through from initial conversation to setting up the start of the job. Professional, high quality service. Left the work site cleaner than when they started. They delivered exactly what they said they would. Pleasant and polite. 10/10” Sandy, Maple Bay.

 

Spring and Fall are great times to trim your hedge.  Be careful with the popular “buzz” look as it can bring on unwanted browning or even disease. A hedge should still look full and Lush after a trim.  See below.

Shrubs

Deadheading, trimming, pruning, weeding..these are all weekly habits of any Lush garden.  It doesn’t take long for a garden to grow out of control so its best to have a weekly/bi-weekly plan.  If your garden has grown out of control, no need to worry, we can have it back to its Lush self!
