Transform your outdoor space with creative and practical solutions from concept to completion.

Leaf Spring Landscaping is a family-run business — a unique team of professionals with a broad range of knowledge and skills. Since 2005 we have installed wonderfully diverse and challenging landscape projects from the heart of Edmonton to the estates in the surrounding area. We provide landscaping solutions by taking into account the lifestyle of our clients, the character and location of each particular site and by the careful selection of plants and materials so as to integrate their home into its surroundings.
