Alan’s Landscaping Heather’s Gardens is a full service design & build firm founded on the concept of designing and constructing beautiful, sustainable, livable landscapes for your Ottawa area property.
Heather has spent the past 18 years working in a variety of roles, all involving working with the natural landscape.The first half of her career was spent with Ontario Parks. More recently she has been working as a landscape designer for ALHG, as well as working as a consulting biologist for various municipalities and private clients.
Alan has spent the past 14 years working in the construction field. A brief stint in heritage masonry led him to pursue work in the general contracting field. From there, he moved up the ladder, and gained knowledge both in constructing and managing projects of various sizes. While working as a general contractor, Alan discovered his true passion was exterior projects, and landscape work.
On the design side, both Heather and Alan work together to plan and create a project that fits your needs, whether it be hardscape (decks, fences, interlock, concrete), softscape (gardens, trees, shrubs, groundcover, grass or sod), lighting , sound, or a combination of any of these. During this design and planning phase, we take inventory of the state of your property, and then create a plan as simple or detailed as the project requires. Once this plan has been established, we then provide a fixed price, and detailed scope of work for the project.
Once the project is designed, Alan and his crew run with it. During the build phase, Alan is on site every day with the crew either constructing or managing the different aspects of the project to ensure the project is executed smoothly.
One way we ensure our projects run smoothly, is that we have invested in a diverse fleet of trucks and heavy equipment. We own our own skid steers, excavators (large and small), dump truck, pickup trucks, and various specialty trailers. Because of this, we can guarantee our equipment is available when our projects require it, rather than relying entirely on rented or hired equipment.
If you’re looking for a competent, professional, well equipped company to tackle your project, please give us a call. We’re happy to help.
