Why choose Cedar Springs?
We are defined by character
We have worked hard for our reputation as a company that provides superior quality landscapes in Oakville, Burlington and the surrounding areas. We achieve that, first, by employing people of character – people that want to create products that are built to last.
We are guided by experience
Of course, the physical features of your current property will affect what is built and how it's done. Some things, like site elevations, the locations of utilities and soil conditions, are dealt with in the design phase.
But other features, like changes in soil content or unexpected materials underground, can only be identified once construction begins. As an example, when building the base for a deck, we may find that the lower soil makeup is less stable and a deeper footing would be needed to ensure a sound deck structure.
Cedar Springs foremen have the expertise to identify and resolve relevant issues as they come up. We know the quality of the finished product depends on our experienced, conscientious people.
We are approachable
You can always feel free to approach your site foreman on the job, or contact your sales rep with questions or concerns as the project unfolds.
We are neat freaks
Construction crews tidy work areas and sweep walk areas at the end of each workday.
How elevation impacts your landscape
Your property’s current elevation plays a big part in how we build your getaway. Put simply, your elevation(s) may help or hinder you, depending on what you want to achieve.
If your property is a low flat grade for example, some features, like a stone patio, will be relatively simple to accomplish. But if your property is sloped or has multiple elevations, a lot of backfill and a retaining wall might be needed to achieve that same patio. A raised deck, on the other hand, might be more accommodating, without needing grade changes – or added expense.
Elevation is a good thing to consider when planning your project, and can have a big effect on the work, materials and budget that will be needed. Talk to us about how we design with your property in mind.
