Our Philosophy

We work with our clients to build landscapes that compliment and enhance their homes, lifestyle and needs. We are passionate about the environment and we strive to create beautiful, functional and relaxing outdoor living spaces that inspire people to spend more time outside. We are intentional about the use and selection of plant material that is appropriate for Calgary’s unique climate.

Our Process

Aspen Grove Landscaping recognizes that each landscaping project is unique – from your particular needs and wants, to the special conditions of your property and budget.


An initial free consultation where we meet on your property. We will walk around with you and talk about your aspirations, concerns and vision for your landscape. We'll raise any issues and ideas that we see and have an initial discussion about budget, scheduling and the scope of the project. You should provide us with a copy of your real property report at this meeting.

Design & Estimate

We meet with you again and a conceptual design will be presented to you. We show you our ideas, discuss our design concept, and receive feedback from you. An initial estimate is given at this time. After any revisions or modifications are made, a detailed landscape design based on your real property report will be prepared, along with a comprehensive cost estimate for the project.

There is a fee for the design. This fee is determined by the complexity and scope of both the site and the design itself.


Once your Aspen Grove design and quote has been approved, a contract agreement will be drafted and signed. After the contract has been signed and a deposit has been received, your project will be put into our schedule.


Depending on the scope of the project, our crew may be at your property anywhere from one day to one month or more. During the installation we will be in contact with you on a regular basis. We will always be readily available to handle any issues or questions that arise.

Walk Through

After completion we’ll give you a guided tour of your new landscape and answer any questions that you might have. We will ensure you have all the information you need to properly care for your new landscape. The final invoice will be issued to you at this point.


Once your project is complete we are ready to assist you in maintaining your new landscape. Aspen Grove provides many maintenance services that will ensure your property always looks beautiful and professionally tended. We are committed to assisting you with the care of your landscape and it’s proper development.
