Gardener in Calgary, Alberta
Knowledgeable home gardener with landscape and lawn maintenance experience, I am ready to help with your yard. I spent two seasons an a landscape crew, preparing the yards in new housing developments for seeding or sodding and another season with a private maintenance contractor, weeding and mowing common areas and residential yards on a military base. Moved on and landscaped two of my own new home lots including landscape design and planting of lawns, flower beds and vegetable gardens. Retired now and in my third home, I have installed a paving stone patio, approximately 50 feet of paving stone walkways and a landing pad for those blue, green and black carts the city has supplied us with. Have also refurbished and/or rebuilt my wooden deck, designed and built wooden and chain link fences for me and my neighbours, and planted and maintained my trees and shrubs. I am particularly proud of a golden juniper bush that I have nurtured since it was a sapling until it now stands more than six feet tall and and spans nearly fifteen feet across the front of our house, making window curtains unnecessary on our living room windows.
This year, I put in a fieldstone rock garden and have nearly finished landscaping my own residence so now I am ready to help you with all of your yardwork. I am a drug-free nonsmoker, physically fit and fully capable of using a shovel and wheelbarrow to move and spot a full cubic yard of topsoil in an afternoon. I know how to prune and shape a tree or bush, how to weed a garden, how to operate all manner of lawnmowers and weed trimmers and how to sculpt a hedge.
Give me a call to discuss your project.
