•  Consultation 
To begin the process of your garden development, a no-obligation meeting will need to be scheduled with Jay. At this interactive meeting at your home, Jay will establish your goals and desires for your property. He will state his opinions and give further suggestions to compliment the garden. If a design is required, an agreement will be drawn up to proceed to the next stage.

• Landscape Design 
After a thorough site analysis and inventory of notes and photographs is gathered, a base plan is drawn up and a series of concept plans are developed. A concept presentation will be scheduled to look at different layout possibilities, material
selection and discuss any revisions. After this meeting, a Preliminary Master Plan will be developed along with an itemized quote and a detailed plant booklet, which will be presented to you.

• Landscape Construction  
When the necessary changes have been made to accommodate your budget, and an agreement to continue with construction has been fulfilled, your dreams become reality. By using a hand-picked, qualified and professional construction crew, pride of workmanship is evident. Though the building process is not so subtle, tidiness and professional conduct are standard throughout. During construction, minor changes tend to occur to produce a more appealing outcome. These are normal and suggested because a quality design is always under revision.

• Garden Maintenance 
Just like a vehicle, if a brand new garden is not fully maintained there will be a decrease in its quality. Although a maintenance free garden would be nice – it simply does not exist. The first year is crucial for plant establishment. Proper watering and fertilizing is necessary to guarantee success. In today’s society, there are not enough hours in the day to cover the day’s to-do list. Jay McKinnon Company can relieve some of your time needed elsewhere by managing your gardens. Whether it is a spring and fall cleanup or a regular commitment throughout the year, we can give you more hours.

After the project is completed certain accents can really add the finishing touch. A teak bench, a classic bird bath or a large container filled with colourful perennials and annuals can make excellent focal points. If you wish to incorporate such features to your garden but cannot find them, the time to find them, or you just don’t know what you want, Jay McKinnon Company can provide this service. We can search for and position items in your garden to create the perfect accent for you.

Container gardening is the latest trend to hit the home and office. We provide a ‘container service’ where we can plant and maintain a container of your choice or ours throughout the season, continually removing and adding specific plants to suit the season.
