There’s a reason London is called “The Forest City”
Since London was incorporated as a city in 1855 (and probably before that), it’s always been known for the shady trees lining the streets.
It’s a tradition that we want to help homeowners and contractors maintain.
After all, we don’t just work in and serve London. We live here too.
So helping people with trees, landscaping or other gardening is a big part of what we do.
Plenty of farmland, plenty of good things to grow
London has an abundance of farmland, making it one of the most agriculturally productive areas in Ontario.
Helping people grow crops for personal or business use is an important part of the city’s dynamic.
That’s why our topsoil, combined with London’s natural soil, is ideal for planting and growing a variety of fruits and vegetables, including:
- Pumpkins and squash
We’re London’s source for interlocking pavers
Trusted interlock paver manufacturers can also be found near London at Grand River Natural Stone:
Landscape professionals and homeowners in London don’t have to look too far when it comes to the latest in interlocking stones.
Helping London garden through the warm months
London is known for its humid continental climate.
The spring-summer-fall landscaping season usually runs from early April to late October.
However the influence of the Thames River and its proximity to Lake Huron gives the city a large seasonal contrast.
For example, London can experience windy or breezy days as well as the occasional tornado.
Although we can’t do anything about tornados, we can help London residents make the most of the warm and sunny days available to them.
Where people live and what they do in London
London has experienced steady population growth since 1871. The most expansive period was 1951 to 1961, where the population went from approximately 95,000 to 170,000 (a 78% increase).
Some of the more desirable neighbourhoods in London are:
- Central London
- Huron Heights
- River Bend
And when people aren’t home, they could be found in London’s thriving educational and health care community.
London is home to prominent universities (Western Ontario), colleges (Fanshawe) and hospitals (St. Joseph’s).
