When you search for landscaping near me, we are the small family owner company that comes to mind. We made the decision to become entrepreneurs back in 2012. We knew a lot about our respective trades, and not much about how the business should operate. It was a very steep, stressful, exciting, and eye-opening ride. The biggest lesson we learned was to create partnerships with others in our line of work. We reached out to other small business’ to find the like minded people that we wanted to grow together with.
The goal was to find someone who we could learn from, rely on, and most importantly, keep it as local as we could. One of our biggest ally is Burnco Landscape. Though-out the years they have been a great partner, we learn so much from them and we really dont shop anywhere else. We have grown to think of the Burnco Crew as part of our landscape family.
Protecting the Environment:
By far the most important, not just for today but for the future as well. When our products are made in Canada, and in some cases made in Edmonton, AB, we significantly reduce the distance our products have to travel. The end result is using less fossil fuels, we do our part to help Mother Earth.
Our goal is to recycle as much as we can. If possible we re-use paving stones, and when we cant we recycle them. They dont just end up in the garbage. We transplant trees and shrubs, and screened topsoil which keeps the nutrient rich soil where it belongs.
