Providing environmentally friendly landscaping to Central Vancouver Island residents.We use sustainable, sensible products and methods to help preserve the local environment and keep your home safe for you and your pets. Your yard is a sensitive ecosystem. With a balanced approach, we can assist you in creating an environment that many beneficial bacterial/fungi and microorganism thrive in. When dealing with problems such as weeds, destructive insects, and disease caution is used to ensure proper balance is kept. We are responsive to new technologies and have converted most of our equipment to battery powered to help reduce carbon emissions.
