Bloor Yorkville BIA Landscape Maintenance

Project-management Maintenance

What was once known as Toronto’s bohemian centre and the breeding ground for some of Canada’s most noted musical and poetic talents, The Bloor-Yorkville area became one of the busiest urban centres in North America. Transforming this area was no easy task but with the vision in mind of creating an enhanced pedestrian experience with widened sidewalks, mature trees, flower gardens and accent lighting, the Bloor-Yorkville BIA did just that. 

The transformation has resulted in a vibrant commercial and residential area with upscale shops, restaurants and boutiques, all while being pedestrian friendly providing a stimulating oasis and charming atmosphere to all those who stroll its boulevards and streets in Bloor-Yorkville.  

Since that time Aldershot Landscape Maintenance have been proud partners with the Bloor Yorkville BIA to bring to life the streets of Bloor Yorkville by being the service provider to install and maintain the attractive and engaging displays of flowers, perennials, bulbs and wintergreens for the changing seasons.

With a precision coordinated effort, Aldershot Landscape successfully installs over

35000 spring bulbs and pansies for the early spring season — 25000 mature flowers and 500 mature hanging baskets for the summer and autumn seasons and over 20000 garlands, branches, wintergreen boughs and décor items for the holiday & winter season. In order to minimize the disturbance to the shopkeepers and pedestrians, Aldershot performs this work during the overnight hours and changes the seasonal displays in the very tight time frame.

The result is an inviting and vibrant urban space providing a stimulating oasis for those who work, live, visit and shop in the area.

The streets of Bloor-Yorkville has established itself as one of the ‘must visit’ areas of North America and Aldershot Landscape Maintenance is happy to be part of that.

After we completed the Bloor Street Transformation Project, we needed to ensure that our new garden spaces looked amazing all year round. After reviewing several possible companies, we decided to work with Aldershot (ALC) and have enjoyed working with their team over the past many years. Aldershot crews take pride in their work and they are large enough to take on a big job such as this. The timing and quality of their work is excellent. We love our showcase gardens on Bloor Street and are so pleased that our neighbourhood stands out with colourful, lush landscapes. Aldershot also provides us with year-round plantings in over 230 hanging baskets and over 2 dozen on street planters.
