Landscape & Garden Design Services

design services

At Shade Group we offer a variety of landscape and garden design services for residential and commercial projects including new developments, new construction, environmental assessments, and more.

Design Consultations

Did your municipality or local Conservation Authority request you determine environmental impacts due to your development proposal? You’ve come to the right place! We can help you figure out what you need to do to get shovels in the ground for your project. Whether it’s working through permitting requirements, or preparing an Environmental Impact Statement, we have the expertise to make things happen and can help you determine if your project is even feasible before any construction begins.

Garden Design Services

Everyone can appreciate a beautiful garden, but there are many homeowners and property owners that just don’t know how to actually create them, what plants and flowers to choose or where to even start! Creating beautiful gardens can take years of experience, not only in plant identification, but also how to plant what plants where, and what plants they are compatible with, or compliment, and don't forget how to properly care for the gardens too!  We can provide garden design services for landscape renovations, new construction projects, for both residential and commercial projects throughout West Ottawa.

Landscape Design Services

We design beautiful front and back yards and outdoor living areas!  A well thought out and implemented landscape design will improve your curb appeal, increase your enjoyment of your property, lower your maintenance requirements, and raise your property value.  Whether you’re looking for a new front yard, a new back yard, some new colourful garden beds, or a new outdoor living area, the team at Shade Group will be able to help!  From something as simple as designing some garden beds and choosing the specific plantings, to designing your complete front and back yards, retaining walls, outdoor patios, and more.

LID Consulting & Design

LID stands for low impact development.  Which is a modern storm water management strategy to manage water runoff in an urban environment with minimal impact to the surroundings.  Low impact development techniques often try to help control storm water by mimicking natural systems whenever possible and while creative, it can be a very effective strategy for managing storm water.  LID systems should be designed pre-construction and then after installation can often require tailored maintenance plans that are site specific.  Shade Group is knowledgeable in Low Impact Development (LID) design and can provide LID consulting and design services.
