Full Property Makeover in the Kingsway

Full construction services is available at Landcare. But we also provide landscaping design and build services to a number of Toronto Architects including Altius Architects. This home is an example of the type of full property landscaping that Landcare can do in house or in collaboration with your Architect.

These photos show the before and after of a major renovation. This typical Etobicoke home got a full scale modern makeover.  From zero soft and hardscape to final design with night lighting and extensive gardens.  Landcare’s carpenters built planters, decks, fencing, and built-in seating using a variety of lumber including cedar and ipe. The modern lines of the house are echoed in the rear yard. It’s clean lines and wood cladding is highlighted by the two tiered large deck. the upper area has a dining zone that steps down to a lounge area complete with a copper water feature. Horizontal fencing is a modern feature that contrasts with the woodland garden plants and trees that line the rear wall. Time in the yard is extended into the evenings with night lighting.

The Front of the home is landscaped using a number of materials.  The modern entrance is hardscape with a combination of grey brick interlock, armour stone and glass railings. These multi tiered raised garden beds are then filled with billowing soft grasses flowers.  To add an unexpected element to the home, a steel planter lines the wall by the front door.  This adds a clean, edgier feel to the entrance that a typical urn would not achieve.
