SoftScape Lawn & Garden Maintenance is a family oriented business operated out of Canfield, Ontario by owners Michael Paquette and Janice Petrie.
Our mission statement is to provide affordable property maintenance, without sacrificing quality, to residential homeowners and small businesses.
Our business facility in Canfield, Ontario is approx. 30 minutes south of Hamilton. We specialize in residential and small commercial property maintenance. We offer service in the greater Hamilton area, including Stoney Creek, Ancaster, Binbrook, as well as Caledonia, Canfield, Cayuga, and Hagersville.
While our focus is in maintaining the “soft” or living elements of your landscape such as turf, shrubs and borders, we also offer installation and repair of some “hard”elements such as wood fencing and small decks to complete your backyard oasis. Call us today to explore the possibilities of your yard!
We recognize that you have likely made a substantial investment in both time and money to get your property the way it currently is, but maintaining that look requires ongoing attention to detail, that represents an opportunity cost of quality time spent with friends and family. Or, perhaps you are starting with a clean slate but have limited time to devote to completing your dream.

We can also do installations of new beds or replanting of existing beds with plant or shrubs that you prefer.
If you have compacted soil conditions, you may want to consider a spring or fall aeration of your lawn. Aeration is the process of mechanically removing small plugs of soil from your lawn to provide space for air and sunlight to reach the roots which then can grow deeper and result in a more vigorous lawn that can better combat insects and disease. These small plugs are left on the lawn to decompose and add nutrients to the soil. Ideally fertilization and or overseeding should follow aeration, particularly on a thin or sparse lawn.
Sod pricing and installation is per square foot and dependent upon grade conditions, site elevation, topsoil requirements etc. Call today for a site visit!
We can do repairs to existing fences or decks and can also remove and dispose of old fences or decks whether or not you contract us to build the replacement.
