Fall Clean Up
We are professionally trained to put your property to rest for the winter.
We know which plants to cut back, which to leave, when to prune, what to protect for winter, where to remove leaves, and where they should stay until spring for root zone protection. We will wash and store away your planters, furniture or other outdoor accessories. We’ll recommend the best healthcare practices for your plants, and follow up with organic, late-season fertilizer and mulches.
Our stunning window boxes and planters are of outstanding quality. We also design annual plantings for inside garden beds, on boathouse tops or for deck container gardens.

Our team is experienced at transplanting, sorting and re-combining existing plants with new additions to creatively present simple and elegant plantings. Garden renovations include an after care program to ensure the health and establishment of plants.

The topography and climate of Muskoka can create unique challenges. However, with help from our associate design and granite specialists at AJL Janssen Landscaping Ltd., we offer complete landscape development and renovation services to meet each challenge.

Installations include an after-care program to ensure plant health and establishment.
Mulch enhances the look of a garden and creates an ideal condition for soil and plants.
Nine reasons to mulch:
• Inhibit weed germination and growth
• Eliminate cultivating
• Reduce the amount of watering required by preserving soil moisture
• Shield soil from raindrops, which can cause crusting
• Provide aeration
• Prevent erosion
• Moderate soil-temperature fluctuations; protecting perennial roots from exposure to the cold temperatures and drying winds of winter, and also providing insulation that keeps the root zone cool during a scorching summer.
• Encourages the growth of worms and other beneficial soil organisms that improve soil structure and increase the nutrients available to plants
• Over time, the mulch breaks down adding organic matter to the soil.
Team Leaders can identify the type of soil and when the soil needs to be amended in your planting areas. Amending soil maintains the proper depth for plants, solves drainage problems, increases aeration and replenishes important organic nutrients.
Pea Stone and River Rock
Pea Stone can be used for decorative reasons, drainage control, filler between flagstone, walkways, patios, driveways, dog runs, playgrounds, and around hot tubs, fire pits and propane tanks. River Rock can be used for decorative reasons, drainage control and to protect the foundation and “drip-line” around dwellings.
Organic fertilizers stimulate soil components and promote healthy root and grass growth. Our all natural lawn fertilizer holds onto the nutrients until the plant is ready for them, reducing the frequency of feeding. We estimate that a five percent increase in organic matter quadruples the soil’s water-retention ability.
The chemical process is no longer an option due to legislation by the provincial government, as well as the general public’s embrace of proper environmental practices. Manual weeding is labourious, slow, and ineffective on hard or paved surfaces. Thermal solutions are quick and easy to apply and leave no chemical residue. Our unique superheated steam system instantly cooks weeds into something resembling wilted spinach. Plant cells die at approximately 80 degrees Celsius, collapsing the weed and turning the foliage into a shade of dark green. Our superheated steam unit is perfect for weed control in public areas such as parking lots, municipal sidewalks, building perimeters and sensitive water areas. Our system may also be used directly on poison ivy patches and septic beds without the risk of harmful chemical leftovers or emissions.
NATURAL INSECT CONTROL
We’ll create an inviting habitat for pest-controlling insects such as ladybugs. Just one ladybug will eat 2,400 aphids in its lifespan. Ladybugs also feast on mites and other insects that feed on various plants. We can create the setting that enlists the right soldiers to fight these pests on the front lines of your garden.
Farmers and master gardeners have been spraying garlic to keep insects away for generations. The natural sulphur in garlic repels insects including mosquitoes, ticks, fleas and black flies. The smell overwhelms and chases insects out of the area. The odour of sprayed garlic juice becomes undetectable to humans within minutes and is safe for use in areas used by humans, plants and animals. Our unique garlic spray does not harm butterflies or bees and is completely safe for children, fish, birds, dogs and cats.
It’s a treat when deer visit your property… until you realize this visitor thinks your property is a treat. We have a way to prevent a deer’s interest in the points of interest in your garden. With one application of our repellent, deer will no longer view your trees, shrubs and flowers as an invitation for brunch. Depending on the location at the cottage where evidence of a deer banquet has taken place, we’ll know which safe-to-use deer repellent — egg solids or garlic spray — needs to be applied. One of our deer repellents is putrescent egg solids, which simulates the odour of decaying proteins and triggers a scent of a nearby predator. The other is an organic cocktail that includes garlic oil, creating a wafting stench deer can’t stand.
