Allan’s Landscaping Project


At Allan’s Landscaping we love doing special projects for our clients and this video shows another successful Allan’s Landscaping project.  From conceptualization to completion Allan’s Landscaping has all the services and supplies needed to get your landscaping project done right.

Landscaping your brand new lot or changing up an existing yard can be very daunting.  Where do you start?  What is out there?  What fits in with your lifestyle?  And what will create your back yard sanctuary?  These are some of the questions that may be facing you when your start thinking about your landscaping project on your Saskatoon home.  At Allan’s Landscaping we will sit down with you and figure out what your needs and want are.

What We Do

We have more services that we can list.  For this reason we know we can handle your project from start to finish.  In this video we used several of our services to make the finished project awesome!!!

Window Wells

Windows in some basements are hard to incorporate but are necessary.  In basements that are below the ground you need window wells to support the dirt around the window and keep moisture out.  In the past, window wells were not attractive but Allan’s Landscaping can take a very boring part of your home design, that is usually an eye sore, and make it stunning.

Sod

Grass is the foundation for almost all yards.  However, getting new grass to look beautiful can be tricky.  If you seed your own grass you have to make sure it get the right amount of moisture and all pets and children stay off of it for a very long time.  Sod is a great alternative.  Allan’s Landscaping will make sure your sod is healthy, installed correctly and give you all the instructions you need to take care of it.

Re-Sloping

Yards settle, renovations can cause uneven landscape, or perhaps when your house was built 40 years ago the sloping of your yard wasn’t done exactly right.  No matter what the reason, an incorrectly sloping yard can lead to drainage nightmares.  Again, Allan’s Landscaping has the know how and the equipment to correct your sloping issues.

Whatever your need or want is in relation to your landscaping project Allan’s Landscaping Project Team will sit down with you and get your project planned out so the process is easy and the finished project is breathtaking.

Rubber Edging | Allan’s Landscaping

Allan’s Landscaping Rubber Edging

Allan's Landscaping Rubber Edging

Allan’s Landscaping Rubber Edging

Allan’s Landscaping rubber edging in not only attractive but it also solves several problems your Saskatoon yard can present you with.  We have all been frustrated by putting in a beautiful ground cover only to discover that it intends to cover your entire yard.  For this reason, using a rubber edging is a great solution.  Edging will keep creeping perennials where you want them to stay.  So plant that beautiful creeping phlox you love so much.  Just remember to put in some rubber edging to keep it confined to where you want it.

Rubber edging is also easy to work with.  Because it is made of rubber you can manipulate it and bend it to conform to the shape of the area you are edging.  You don’t have to plan your yard with straight lines and corners in mind because of your landscape edging material.  Get wild and crazy Saskatoon and throw in some curves!!! It will give your yard more curb appeal.

Because our rubber mulches come in three different colors (black, brown and red) it will look great no matter your house color or plants in your yard.  This is important because one of the main advantages of using rubber edging is that it looks great.  It gives a clear division of landscape features on your property and you can play with the color to ensure it fits your design.  Mix it up a bit and use different colors in different areas of your yard.

Uses of Allan’s Landscaping Rubber Edging

Here’s a quick recap of the uses of rubber edging, some already discussed and some new:

  • It looks great and can add an element of attractiveness to your yard
  • Keeps creeping perennials at bay
  • Keeps mulch where you intend it to be
  • Gives you a clear line of where lawn and other yard features are.  This makes mowing much easier.
  • Highlights features in your yard

As always if you have any questions or need some advice from our experts when it comes to designing your yard and using rubber edging just contact us!

Allan’s Landscaping Saskatoon is Under Construction!  Why you ask?  Well to serve you better of course!  It has been a very cold, cold winter so we decided we needed a project.  What better way to keep warm than hard work.  We had a good look at our store and decided we could definitely improve a few things to make the two most importantly people in our lives happy…our customers and our employees!

 

What Have We Improved?

  1. A brand new break room for our employees.  Our employees are awesome people who work very hard.  Especially during our busy season (spring and summer).  They work their tails off!  We decided they needed a nice area to have some down time.  Keeping our employees happy is super important to us.  They are great people and they serve our wonderful customers.  We believe if our employees are happy then you, our customers, will get top notch service above and beyond what you expect.

  2. Two new client rooms.  We are dedicating two private rooms to be available for client consultations.  Sometimes working one on one with clients in the store can be a bit hectic.  Again, especially during our busy times.  There is always interruptions and a ton of distractions.  With the new client rooms we can sit and discuss your needs in a calm atmosphere while still having our products and examples at our finger tips.

  3. Lastly, our new design class room.  Our design classes are great and mega popular.  So, we decided to up our game and make a room just for them.  The room is going to have tables, desks, chairs, and possibly a TV.  Most importantly, there is going to be a ton of room to work in and learn from our experts.

A Small Word About Design Classes

We know that is the dead of winter but this is the perfect time to start thinking about your yard and the upcoming spring and summer.  It is also the perfect time to start thinking about our design classes.  Click here to get more information about our design classes.

Landscaping Mulches in Saskatoon at Allan’s Landscaping

Landscaping Mulches in Saskatoon at Allan's Landscaping

Landscaping Mulches in Saskatoon at Allan’s Landscaping

Landscaping Mulches in Saskatoon at Allan’s Landscaping are a great way to make your yard  look stunning but they also have practical uses.  Mulches look great when they are applied to the soil surface around:

  • trees
  • paths
  • flower beds.

    Saskatoon Mulches Allans Landscaping
    Saskatoon Mulches Allans Landscaping

We have all gone by yards in Saskatoon in the summer and admired their polished look.  Mulches provide this look and a few other benefits.  When applied to soil mulches are a great way to maintain moisture, control weeds, improve the health and fertility of soil and prevent soil erosion on areas that slope.

Types of Mulches

Mulches can be made of either organic or non-organic materials.  Fortunately, Allan’s Landscaping carries both.  Some of the more popular mulches in Saskatoon carried at Allan’s Landscaping include:

  • rubber mulch
  • wood mulch
  • colored mulch
  • cedar mulch
  • spruce mulch
  • acorn mulch
  • many more option.

When to Apply Mulch

Mulches can be applied at different times of the year.  The effect mulch has on your yard and garden depends on what time of the year you apply the mulch.  For example, Mulches that are applied early in the spring help warm the soil and help retain the heat in the soil that can be lost in the evening while applying mulches in the summer help retain moisture and reduce the seeding of weeds.  When applied in the fall mulches are used to delay the growth of perennial plants in the spring or prevent growth in winter during warm spells, which limits freeze thaw damage.

If you want to get extreme and live on the edge a bit try putting colored mulches in your mix.  Allan’s Landscaping has several choices that can help you make the jump to the daring.  While some people are concerned that colored mulches may be toxic we can assure you these are perfectly safe for humans and pets.
