Creative Landscaping Design Solutions in Mississauga, Brampton & Oakville

It is probably safe to say that almost every home has had its share of landscaping problems at one time or another. Perhaps different kinds of flowers were planted too close together, causing one to dominate the other and rob it of sunlight or shade. Perhaps a beloved fruit tree sucks up all the water from rain or sprinklers, resulting in patches or brown around its trunk because grass is not getting the fluids or nutrients it needs to survive. At Pyramid Contracting, we have been the number one irrigation systems, landscaping design, and sod replacement experts in the Greater Toronto Area for more than 30 years and can offer creative and affordable landscape solutions for all your needs.

Whether you live in a drought prone climate or an area with considerable rain, there are many landscaping design options we can present to keep your lawn lush and green all year round or find the right shrubs and flowers to grow all season long.

Here are some common yard problems and landscaping design ideas that may fix them.

Problem #1: Help! My yard is too rocky! In a case like this, many homeowners’ first reaction is to rip out offending rocks or level hilly terrain, when a more environmentally friendly and affordable landscaping design would result in the installation of a rock garden that enhances natural features of your yard.

Problem #2: I have a lot of hills on my property and it is causing erosion near my house. Moving Mother Nature — particularly small hills or berms that are natural to many yards — is difficult, time consuming, and expensive. A better idea would be to build a retaining wall using Armor Stone or some other large natural stone to disperse the water and eliminate further erosion.

Problem #3: I have one area of my yard that gets too much sun and everything dries out. Time and time again we have been approached by homeowners with this very problem, many of whom think the solution is to continually drench the area with water. For a fresh landscaping design idea that will add colour to your yard, try planting drought resistant plants or flowers native to your area or climate. This is what is referred to as “xeriscaping” and means planting succulents like Aloe Vera or Autumn Joy sedum, or Ornamental grasses such as Yellow Pampas or Blue Oat.

Problem #4: I love the trees on my property, but there is too much shade and nothing else grows — not even grass. In a case like this, the best idea is to plant grass that does not need as much water, such as Kentucky Bluegrass, or shade-loving shrubs like Red Osier Dogwood or plants like the multi-climate capable Hosta.

Regardless of the size or shape of your property, the experts at Pyramid Contracting can design landscape solutions that will take your yard from ho-hum to “Wow!” in no time. For more information or a free quote, call us at 877-343-7333.
