Positively Impacting Our Environment With Landscaping

At Soares Landscaping, we love our hometown of Kitchener. We love it so much that we’ve dedicated our time to serving the community with beautiful landscaping designs that families can enjoy for years and years to come. Creating these priceless and lasting moments is our main interest when we work with each client.

As a landscaping company, it’s our duty to make sure that the place we call home is healthy, thriving, and at its best. When landscaping is not done properly (or not done at all), the effects that it can have on the home includes:

  • Inefficient energy usage
  • Water pollution and shortages
  • Decrease in soil health
  • Fertilizer run-off
  • Diseased lawns

Although this might seem like small problems for one household, when you multiply that by hundreds of yards within just one city, the issue combined becomes bigger. We believe that every element in nature is connected and that the small actions we do impacts our circle, the community, and the world.

When our passionate team meets with our clients, our main priority is to provide their home with a sustainable outdoor living space that allows them to create memories with their loved ones for years down the road.
