Have a garden that inspires…
Whether its a garden we have designed and built or an existing garden that needs a little extra care, our mission is to nurture each and every garden as a place for play, relaxation, and to spend time with friends and family (or customers, if you own a business).

In order to best maintain our clients gardens, whether created by us or already existing, Helping Nature Heal offers a year-round, Consistent Service Program, seasonal landscape care, and individual service maintenance. We are dedicated to developing a maintenance plan that best serves the needs of the client while respecting the environment, the existing conditions, neighbouring ecosystems, and the history of the garden or place.
Consistent Service Program (CSP)
A CSP is a customized landscape maintenance plan that is designed to ensure that your landscape always looks its best. Depending on the type of landscape to be maintained CSPs can include weekly, biweekly, or monthly maintenance schedules. CSPs offer our clients peace of mind knowing that their landscape is being cared for on a regular basis and that they will be notified if any issues arise. This is particularly valuable to the owners of summer homes and cottages who cannot always be onsite to ensure the health of their landscape. As part of the CSP we make note of seasonal client’s arrival dates and ensure that the landscape is looking its very best upon their arrival. CSPs also include a provision for special occasion maintenance. Whether you are hosting a wedding, having relatives to visit or simply planning a dinner party, give us one week notice and we will come and ensure your landscape is looking beautiful for your event. We are always happy to adapt and to work with our clients to meet their individual needs so if there is a service you would like that is not on our list please ask us.
Seasonal Landscape Care
This is a customized landscape maintenance plan in which seasonal or twice seasonal visits are strategically timed to coincide with the seasonal changes in the plants. This service is great for mature gardens that do not require intensive maintenance but benefit from strategically timed edging, weeding, cutting back finished bulbs or perennials, and dormant shrub pruning. Storm check-ins and clean up can be incorporated into these plans.
Individual Service Maintenance
Need some help getting ready to host a big event? Whether your event is a wedding, retirement party, birthday or dinner party we are available to help get your grounds looking their best! We can do simple edging, weeding, and pruning or we can help you renovate your space with new plants, gardens and/or mulch. We require at least a week notice for this service and the earlier the better since some plants take a little while to rebound. We also provide dormant pruning, spring clean up, and winter protection as individual maintenance visits.
