Latham Landscapes is proud to use ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY products and techniques.
From small garden design to large scale landscapes, we will bring your garden ideas to life! Improve existing gardens, implement new designs, or have us create an oasis from the ground up. Using local and organic soils, product and plants, efficient and knowledgeable landscape technicians and horticulturalists will build you a sustainable lawn and garden that is harmonious to you and your environment.
Regular maintenance, garden tidy ups, lawn care, and landscape improvement services by our dedicated team. Using 100% organic methods, soils, and products we will keep your lawn and gardens looking healthy and green, the natural way. Healthy plant life starts with soil and includes everything from water supply to insects. We will monitor and ensure that your lawns and gardens are looking their best.
Pruning trees and shrubs seeks to create a mature form over the course of several seasons and is not to be rushed. Pruning of trees and bushes on a regular scheduled basis will control growth, improve plant health and will enhance fruiting, flowering, and appearance. Our pruning team pays close attention to detail and ensures your hedges and trees get the appropriate and healthy trim they need to flourish.
Healthy soil isn't just earthworms, but a variety of bacteria, fungi and microorganisms. By using chemical fertilizers, we injure microbial life that sustains healthy soil and plants. It becomes reliant on artificial substances to flourish, creating a vicious cycle.
We can help break this cycle and decrease the need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides through the use of organic fertilizers and compost. Compost is broken down organic garden matter and plant debris, such as grass clippings and brown leaves. It enhances the soil by encouraging the growth of micro-organisms that break down matter, creating a humus. Since compost based fertilizers are mostly water insoluble, they remain where applied and the effects last much longer. Due to soil moisture retention and the ability of compost to break up hard soils, our lawns and gardens require less irrigation, promote better root growth and give plants the ability to survive long hot dry spells.
To find out exactly what your lawn and garden need, we will sample your soil to assess the quality and discover any deficiencies. Once our lab returns the results we will be able to move forward with a comprehensive organic treatment and maintenance program to improve the health of your landscape.
Organic practices such as compost, organic fertilizers, mulching, reduced cultivation and compost tea, may be used individually or in conjunction. Let us rejuvenate your gardens with our compost services!
We've built our reputation on exemplary CUSTOMER SERVICE.
Founded in Squamish, BC in 1998 by Kris Latham, Latham Landscapes has carved out a name for itself recognized for high quality workmanship. We use the best in materials and equipment, our team is comprised of Certified Horticulturists, Irrigation Technicians and a wealth of experienced professional staff who strive for innovation and customer satisfaction.
We provide all aspects of landscape construction and maintenance services to home owners, builders, architects, designers and property management firms in the Sea To Sky Corridor. We are well known for our high quality work, efficiency, competitive pricing and friendly, knowledgeable staff. A strong understanding of organic landscape methods, design and construction contribute to our success, made evident by the quality of the lawns and gardens we create and care for.
As of the 2014 season, we now use all organic materials in all of our construction and maintenance! Organic gardening largely relies on techniques such as green manure, biological pest control, and compost for growing healthy lawns, plants and vegetation.
Organic garden and lawn practices are important on many levels. Not only do the chemical based fertilizers and pesticides affect the existing plants but also have devastating consequences from their residual life in the soil.
Their continual use damages the quality of soil and over the years of continued usage the pests develop resistance to these pesticides. In some of the cases insecticides may wipe out beneficial insects that are nature's own way of pest control. Natural gardening thrives on natural ways such as improving & nurturing soil biodiversity in addition to the flora & fauna ecosystems.
