Landscaping Services

Design | Construction | Renovation | Maintenance

Whether you have a new home without any landscaping or a mature garden that needs work, we know that the design and maintenance process can be intimidating. As a home owner, you understand the importance of the Landscaping to your home’s value. The right landscaping / maintenance partner makes all the difference.

We work together with you through the following services to ensure that your dream outdoor space is realized, with as little stress as possible.

Complete Landscape Design & Construction

By starting with your wish list, asking questions, and incorporating your budget, together we will establish your design goals, and the best direction to take to achieve your dream outdoor space. We look at your landscape as an investment in your home and something that grows in value.

As your landscape matures and grows, so does your investment. Our creative award winning team will have your property stand out as something unique and personal to you. Trust Shades of Summer Landscaping for the vision of your property, not just for tomorrow but for many years to come.

Landscape Renovation

Many of our clients come to us saying their landscape looks tired and overgrown. In some cases removing and starting new is the way to go, but sometimes your landscape is a diamond in the rough.

Rejuvenating a landscape is a wise investment and saves money in the process. Keep the original investment and remove and replace old trees and shrubs for a fresh new look.

Outdoor Night Lighting

For those who like to entertain or have quiet evenings at home, night lighting is the perfect compliment to your landscape. Lighting gives a different dimension to your landscape and extends the length of time for enjoyment. Even in winter, lighting can catch the shimmer of snow on the branches of trees or highlight snowflakes as they fall. Lighting allows for a year-round enjoyment of your property. Whether you are highlighting that specimen Japanese maple or the steps to the front of your house, lighting is a sound investment.

Landscape Maintenance

Let Shades of Summer's award winning lawn and garden team look after your investment throughout the year. With a good spring clean-up in April right through until the last leaf is picked up in fall, our maintenance crews provide unmatched service with season long property maintenance.

Outdoor Urns and Planters

If a colourful yard is on your wish list, our creative floral team will have your gardens, urns and planters the envy of the neighbourhood with blooms of colour all summer long. Of course we can also look after your floral needs with seasonal urns and planters that we change out to keep interest 12 months of the year!

Residential Snow Clearing

When the snow flies we also provide residential snow clearing for Hamilton-West mountain, Ancaster, Dundas and Burlington. For those concerned about plow trucks damaging your driveways and lawns, rest assured as we use only the best commercial snow blowers the market has to offer with no damage to your property.
