We love our gardens. Ocean Green Landscaping provides garden design and installation of new gardens in the South Shore, including Bridgewater, Lunenburg, Mahone Bay, Chester, LaHave, Indian Point, Italy Cross, and Queens County. As well, we offer garden maintenance for new plantings, weeding, pruning, mulching, preparation in spring and preparing gardens for the winter.
Why install a garden? People love them for all kinds of reasons. One of the main ones is “curb appeal,” or how attractive your home and property look from the street.
You can create curb appeal for your home with stunning gardens, plants, shrubs and trees. Is there a home in your neighbourhood with a front yard garden that you find yourself admiring and think how welcoming the home looks? Your home can have the same beautiful surroundings created in your landscape. Or, Ocean Green Landscaping can help you come up with your own original garden design. Garden design and installation are our specialties!
A few suggestions:
Have a focal point: Look for something that will stand out from its background, such as a water feature or a specimen tree. Consider the height, shape and color. Ask yourself, what makes your choice stand out from the background?
Perennial plants should be selected and planted in your landscape according to their season of interest. Consider the season/month they are in bloom, as well as their height and color.
Also, when planning your garden, take into account the amount of sunlight your plants will receive and the type of soil you have available.
Your desire to create a garden is the first step. We can help with the rest, from the design stage through installation, and we are also be available for future maintenenace needs. Just give us a call! 902-530-3241.
We had the privilege of having Colin and Katherine from Ocean Green Landscaping help us redesign our front lawn / garden bed. The work was completed in a timely manner and everyone we worked with was pleasant, efficient and ensured they understood what our vision of the end product would look like. We made a few alterations during production and all were very agreeable and open to these changes. After completion we were given instructions on how to care for the new lawn and garden bed during what turned out to be one of the driest summers we’ve ever experienced. We are now approaching the end of the summer and the new lawn is lush and garden bed is filling in nicely. We would certainly use Ocean Green Landscaping again for our future landscaping needs.Mary C.
