Landscape Construction & Installation
Once your design is in place, it’s time to get our hands dirty! Heaps of rich, black earth will replace overgrown shrubbery, and vibrant sod will take the place of a bleak, empty canvas. Landscape construction can be intensive, but rest assured, we consider ourselves artists. We keep disruptive noise and clutter to a minimum so the process is as seamless as possible.
There are two key components to construction of your new space, each offering a very personal opportunity for creativity:
Softscapes are the natural pieces such as shrubbery, trees, perennials, grass, and mulch. They set the tone for your space and infuse it with natural beauty. When we talk about the timeline for your landscape design, we take the long term approach with softscapes, giving trees and shrubs time to mature, flowers time to bloom, and you the pleasure of being able to see it all come to life through the varied stages of growth.
Examples of Softscapes:
- Healing Gardens
- Perennials & Shrubs
- Roof Top Gardens & Green Walls
As you can guess, hardscapes include stonework and pathways, fencing, decks, fireplaces, outdoor rooms, lighting, and water features. If softscapes are the beauty, hardscapes are the brawn. They’re the pieces that bring function to your backyard and are easier to swap out as time, trends and budgets evolve.
Our natural philosophy and long-term outlook influence every landscape construction decision, from effective drainage to green waste management.
Examples of Hardscapes:
- Outdoor Rooms
- Outdoor Lighting
- Paver Patios and Walkways
- Pergolas and Privacy Screens
- Retaining Walls
- Water Features
We can also help with:
- Grading & Drainage
- Irrigation Systems

Hear From Our Clients!
“Geoff and his team at Rossmere have been providing landscape design and maintenance services for our family’s large residential property for over 15 years and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Besides timely and regular maintenance, Geoff’s team also proposes new softscape and hardscape additions and improvements as the property transitions through its annual phases. A perfect combination of creativity and responsiveness, we wouldn’t go anywhere else. ”

“I was searching online for a higher end lawn care maintenance provider that I could both trust and receive high quality service from, when I landed on Rossmere Custom Landscapes’ website. I could tell immediately that Geoff and his team seemed to care more, as his site reflected a more confident and polished story than most. I wasn’t disappointed! After four years of spring to fall TLC lawn care maintenance, I’m still as pleased as the first day Geoff’s team came to spruce up my yard.”
- Grace, Winnipeg, Manitoba
“As a commercial building property owner close to the heart of downtown, we’ve always wanted our space to have as much “green” as possible, and Geoff and his team have always been able to add that finishing touch with limited opportunity for extensive landscaping features. It’s amazing what some creatively placed flowering pots and small shrubs can do! Along with keeping the grassy areas neatly trimmed and well watered, our building property’s outdoorsy character feels fresh and inviting all summer long. Thanks Geoff!”
