Organic Nutrients & Landscape Solutions
Landscape design is in transition. More than ever before, Rossmere clients are embracing the wisdom of butterflies, bees, and bugs and environmentally conscious property owners want to learn about low maintenance irrigation and prairie perennials. Even traditionalists who dream of an expanse of beautiful grass are turning to routine aeration and organic fertilizers.
Environmentally conscious planning means we can follow nature’s lead with as little interference as possible. A well designed landscape creates effective drainage, thoughtful flower choices attract beneficial critters to control pests, and grass clippings and fallen leaves become mulch instead of landfill waste. If additional support is required, our solutions are natural and organic.
We help people to embrace the outdoors while minimizing their impact. When we understand the soil as a living, breathing, ecosystem we can help it to thrive. Soil testing, slow-growing grass plants, alternative ground cover, and composting - there are many ways to be an environmental champion. We believe nature is our best teacher.
Our Green Commitment
From carpooling to reusing our garden pots, Rossmere believes in creating the change we want to see in the world and aim to embody this philosophy every day. Mindful planning can make a difference now!
We’re continually improving our green services and we consider it our responsibility to pass on our knowledge. We’re happy to talk about effective drainage and irrigation with your neighbour when he admires your plush lawn, or tell the new parents across the street where they can buy a quiet battery-operated hedge trimmer. Becoming a champion for the environment doesn’t happen overnight, but slow, steady progress will change one home, street, and suburb at a time.
At Rossmere, we always go the greenest route possible, in our designs, sourcing, and process. We work hard to limit our impact on the land, water resources, and environment. Being green and making conscious choices doesn’t have to be difficult, expensive or restrictive. In fact, it can be satisfying, fulfilling and fun.
Energy Efficient Landscapes
A well-designed landscape generates efficiencies, both in nature and in your wallet. Rossmere custom landscape solutions reduce electricity bills, save time and energy, and lighten our environmental footprint. If it’s good for the planet and your bottom line, we consider it a stroke of organic genius!
Why fight nature when you can harness its powers for good? In the summer, specific tree placement shades the kids in the backyard, and inside generates the cooling effect of an impressive air conditioner! During winter, a well planned windbreak provides protection, slashes your heating bills, and lessens the load of a snowfall.
Native plants with robust root systems conserve moisture, slow erosion, and prevent run-off. Rock gardens are focal points that require little maintenance. Collecting grey water is easy and can be repurposed for your minimal irrigation needs. The more efficient your landscape the more energy and resources we save for you and for our planet!

“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!”
