Balsam Avenue Beauty Landscape Project

The Beaches, The beach

Balsam Avenue is one of the many special streets in Toronto Beaches. Also known as The Beach, this area has very mature trees and has a unique “laid back vibe” compared to the rest of Toronto. Updating this home required both and architectural firm and landscaping company that could maintain the character of the house but also provide it’s owners with an more modern version.  Landcare’s residential design team frequently works with Toronto architects. This Toronto Beaches property is an example of a collaboration between Landcare and Altius Architecture. Contemporary style has been added to a once traditional style home. Elements of the two blend perfectly in the backyard of this Toronto Residence.  The clean lines of a contemporary landscape design highlight the beauty of this the mature treed property and create an inviting space for dining al fresco with friends and family.  An added fire pit extends outdoor time late into autumn.  Stone patios, walkways and abundantly planted gardens provide this property with a stunning and timeless look.  A new fence adds privacy and acts as a backdrop to the long garden that boasts beautiful shrubs like Rhododendrons, Hydrangeas, and boxwood.  Night-lighting highlights features, adds drama and creates safe pathways along walkways.

Nature is always trying to return to its wild state, so it is vital that a newly landscaped property be properly maintained, less it will start to become overgrown and lose its shape.  Landcare offers a variety of services depending how much or little a homeowner wants to be involved in their property. We do urn and annual planting, we provide four season service that includes spring clean up, detaching, top dress, seed and fertilize of lawn and turf, garden weeding and mulch, leaf blowing/raking and removal, pruning, and more. Our subcontractors take care of the irrigation and lighting maintenance, but it’s all managed by Landcare.
