Quality in a service is not what we put into it, but what the client gets from it.
Softscaping is comprised of trees, evergreens, flowering shrubs, broadleaf evergreens, grasses and perennials, as well as seasonal plants. The aesthetic arrangement of elements is the cornerstone of softscaping.
We can take you ideas and translate them into conceptual and working drawings; it is all about a harmony of form, texture, colour, shape and rhythm. Creating the perfect landscape requires design and construction experience and a knowledge of the plants that will thrive in our environment - all skills we possess.
Regular property care is the key to enhancing your property's appeal, and protecting and improving its value. The team at Heritage offers maintenance programs that include mowing, trimming, liming and fertilizing. We also offer shearing and pruning, tree trimming, edging and weeding, mulching, and custom property-restoration services.
The trees, shrubs, and flowers used in your landscape should reflect your needs as a home or business owner, while at the same time expressing the qualities that are unique to you. We work with each client to ascertain colour, fragrance and style preferences, and maintenance levels that work with your lifestyle.
Our hardscaping services span all the elements in a landscape. The benefits of hardscaping are to increase the beauty and value of your property, while enhancing the use and pleasure derived.
Property owners tired of looking at stained or cracked concrete, dirt, or asphalt drives and walks are installing beautiful, durable and low-maintenance options of brick, slate and cobblestone. These add to the aesthetic appeal, create opportunities for landscaping focal points and increase property value. Pavers are several times stronger than concrete and a damaged paver can be individually replaced.
Patios create areas in the landscape for entertaining and relaxing and range from informal, intimate spaces to large, formal terraces. Patios offer a wide range of options for your landscape based on size, shape, colour, design, and pattern. A good patio should be slip resistant and have an attractive finish, with steps to provide comfortable grade transitions.
Retaining walls are used in landscaping to either tame a hillside or for decorative purposes. Retaining walls can be built from many different materials, and be large or small depending on your needs. Drainage is the single most important part of the wall’s structure. By addressing how water moves in and around a property, and taking care to add proper drainage when building, retainer walls last a lifetime.
The secret to a beautiful lawn is in its underlying construction. A well-constructed lawn will require less maintenance and tolerate more wear, and be suitable for your purposes for years to come. Spring and fall are the best times to install a new lawn but, with a little extra work, new lawns can be successfully installed throughout the entire growing season.
From small container fountains to large ponds meant to keep fish or attract wildlife, water features add pleasant sounds and movement to a property. The placement of boulders, stonework, lighting, filtration, and plantings can create a healthy biome, while unifying the property and creating a balanced and interesting landscape feature.
Enjoying your landscape should not end when the sun goes down or winter is upon us. Heritage can assist you by illuminating your landscape with professional accent lighting. Whether the entrance to your home or business, a featured tree or shrub, path and drive lighting or a custom water feature, we can design and install great lighting.
