Pruning your trees is not only good for the landscape, but for the trees as well.  Balancing the weight distribution allowing proper reaction wood to occur in a tree is fundamental for the trees success.  Doing things like removing crossing branches, dead wood, and improper branch unions improves tree vitality and vigor.  Trees are a wonderful organism capable of growing for thousands of years, however in the urban environment they struggle due to things like soil compaction, lack of nutrients and neglect.  We at Garden Creations of Ottawa care about our urban forest and are devoted to being ethical arborists so we will do what is best for your trees and shrubs.  Enjoy your trees today and maintain them so that they will be strong and beautiful in the future.

Our staff is filled with many certified professionals in plant healthcare, so to find out how these services could benefit your property or if you would like some information on plant species call 613 822 0716 today!  Additional contact information available on our website, check it out!

Paying it forward

by admin on September 25, 2012

Our relationship with Ronald McDonald House, which began more than 20 years ago, is a great example of paying goodwill forward. Ottawa’s Ronald McDonald House is the home away from home for families with sick children receiving care at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.

We wanted to help build a culture of optimism at the House by creating a beautiful, collaborative oasis that evaporates stress and an appealing way to represent a healthy tomorrow.

Garden Creations joined fellow Landscape Ontario members to build the House’s first gardens. Our staff of certified horticulturalists continues regular upkeep of the landscape, maintaining the garden that is a substantial source of Garden Creations’ pride.
