We service residential and commercial clients in and around the Toronto area. We are members in good standing belonging to the Organic Landscape Alliance.


Applewood's goal has been to educate our clients on the value of organic gardening and land care and to eliminate the dependency on using cosmetic pesticides. We have strived to emphasize the importance of  biodiversity both above ground and below and stressed the importance of  healthy soil.


Applewood offers over 75 different services in land care for both residential and commercial clients. Everything from organic lawn care and gardening and responsible environment and property  management to landscape beautification and garden design.


Our landscape design and construction services integrate beauty and aesthetics to try to create positive micro-habitats where clients can conserve water and energy. We listen to our clients and consult with them on creating functional , beautiful and organic green spaces that establish healthy urban micro-environments that have a positive impact on their communities while increasing the property values of our clients and the communities we service.


We promote and educate our clients on sustainable,  pesticides-free gardens and lawns. We support biological pest control. We utilize a variety of organic and natural compost fertilizers ranging from sheep/cow compost to worm compost (vermicompost) and employ effective microorganisms, mycorrhizal fungi, compost tea brewers, sea minerals, kelp, humic acids, fish hydrolysate, and more.


We offer educational coaching seminars (“Organic Gardening with Kids-Program) introducing future environmental stewards to the benefits of organic gardening and practices. We offer Gardening with Seniors-Program Service which invites our elderly clients living at home to participate in non-strenuous gardening and landscaping activities working alongside our professionals.


We specialize in using natural stone features such as moss rock in our xeriscaping projects, promoting where we can the use of native plants and native restoration.  We are experts in consulting on ,bog garden, moss rock and flagstone garden design and  construction and offer many alternative ecological land care and environmental management practices such as wind management, micro-climate control, rain water harvesting and creating storm water diversion pits.
