LANDSCAPING JOBS

Position: Landscape Supervisor
Organization: Wildrose Gardening
Location: Toronto, Ontario

Wildrose — Sustainable Gardening & Landscaping

We provide a wide variety of landscaping services, including gardening, planting, tree care, pruning, property maintenance, stone and wood hardscaping. We encourage our clients to plant native plants that will encourage wildlife and that do not need pesticides to thrive. We educate our clients so they use the right plant in the right location. We discourage the use of pesticides. In addition we only use organic alpha fertilizer for the lawns we fertilize. We encourage pine mulch which is a natural mulch that over time breaks down to feed the plants organically. It also reduces water consumption. At my home I have a living roof planted with sedums. I installed it approximately 12 years ago... never fertilize it and rarely water it. It is thriving. We separate and recycle all of our blue bin material and green waste. We return all of the planting pots to Sheridans for recycling.
