Community

We have been extremely fortunate to follow our dreams and aspirations in designing and creating landscapes as our business.

We can think of no better way to say "thank you" than to give back to our community by helping out with local projects.

Here are some of them.


Home Build for Healthcare 2010

Home Build for Healthcare was a great project.
Over 100 trades people got together and helped
build this beautiful house.

The net proceeds of the sale were donated to the
Trenton and Belleville hospitals for equipment purchases.
The building wasn't finished when we were
working, and it rained the night before,
but everyone kept on going.
What teamwork!
These were brand new shoes!
The Garden Place wishes to thank
Connon Nurseries for donating the plant
material, and Judy Bell of Tree Frog Designs
for all her help!
A new fall garden.

And the house was sold!

Community Living Quinte West 2011

This was a great project for a great cause!
There were major renovations to the inside of
the building and a brand new landscape,
complete with a Sensory Garden being
installed as well. A handful of landscapers
got together to do the landscape, and we
were honoured to join them!
The raised Sensory Gardens, with different patterns
of brickwork on the ground, was designed to enable
easier access and will be filled with interesting plants
of texture, fragrance and tastes, come Spring.

Habitat for Humanity - 2012 Project

We offered our design and install services
for the Frankford home and work got on it's way!
Here's a picture of the almost-built house.
Next - working with the owners-to-be,
we designed a simple but lovely front landscape.
Here's a picture of our guys seeding
a new lawn after the gardens went in.

The project went very well, the weather co-operated
and the lucky owners have a new landscape to enjoy!

We also did the Homes for Humanity, this time in Trenton.
