Ripley’s Aquarium

Ripley's Aquarium property maintenance

Public spaces have their own design and maintenance challenges.  Thousands of people arrive on the property and stand in and around the gardens, frequently discarding garbage and trampling annuals.  Landcare maintains this property year round keeping gardens and walkways free of debris and looking their best. Perennials such as Barberry and fountain grasses were added to fill spaces and detract visitors from entering the gardens.  They provide enhanced texture and interest to the preexisting blanket annual plantings.  Mulching and drought tolerable plants help keep gardens healthy and weeds free during the summer’s dry heat.  During Toronto’s cold snowy winters, Landcare provide snow removal and deicing.  This property has busy pedestrian traffic year-round and Landcare keeps them safe by consistently monitoring the property for potential icing.
