Genus Loci Ecological Landscapes Inc. is a progressive, full-service landscape company based in King City, Ontario. Serving the Greater Toronto Area, our team of landscape architects, builders, and horticulturalists work in collaboration with associate surveyors, engineers and tradesmen to offer a streamlined, landscape service for projects big and small in the residential, commercial, and public sectors.
Here are five key reasons to entrust Genus Loci with your landscape project:
1. High Level Design Service: We take design very seriously - it really is "where the magic happens". We offer a high level, modestly-priced professional design service to create uniquely customized, thoughtfully inspired and exquisitely detailed landscapes and outdoor living spaces that accurately reflect your vision, needs, wants and budget.
2. Quality construction and workmanship: Our in-house construction division handles virtually all the installation work. Where necessary, we rely on highly qualified sub-contractors to tackle specialized aspects of construction. Our chain of command includes a site supervisor, a project manager, a site foreman and lead hands, all in direct line of communication with the project designer to ensure each project meets our rigorous quality control standards, stays on track, and remains true to the designs.
3. Efficiency: Genus Loci streamlines the traditional client/designer/third party contractor process by offering a seamlessly integrated design and construction package that a) saves you money by reducing professional design and administrative fees; b) ensures a smooth and efficient transition from design to construction; c) shorter, more efficient turnaround time from start to finish.
4. Effective Communications: Effective communications and transparency is a priority through the design, estimating, construction and post-construction project stages. Our integrated design-build model ensures strong lines of communication between the client, designer and project supervisor. Our process is flexible, adaptable and responsive when site-dictated or client-requested design changes are needed "on the fly" as construction progresses.
5. Continuity: Genus Loci cultivates long term relationships. Our integrated approach allows us to see your project though from initial vision, to concept development and construction, through to warranty periods and on-going maintenance and support.

Commented: Love this fountain. What are the plants you chose to surround it? Thanks for the feedback! The upright plant at the back is a "Waterfall" Japanese Maple, and the lower shrub in the front is a Carol Mackie Daphe. Hope this helps!
