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.
Come join the Wildrose team. Wildrose Gardening is looking for hardworking people that want to excel in what they do. We are a full-service landscaping company, serving the GTA since 1983.
Wildrose Gardening is interested in having team members be the best they can be, which is why we strongly encourage training, not just in house, but with colleges and other skills improvement agencies.
We look for people who love their work and like to have fun at the same time.
