Business to Business Designs

I am a graduate from Niagara College in the horticulture program.  Within the program we had Landscape Design.  I really took to the creativity of this program, as I did when I was in art class in high school.  Throughout the years I have focused on perfecting the design process and plantings.  I have studied plants at my own home with many test plants that have taken, and many that do not agree with where I placed them.  It has taken me 15 years to learn, discover, fail (on some)and succeed.  I want to take out the guessing game for fellow landscapers that can install a great hardscape but lack in the planting department.  Plants can cost a lot of money and if you don’t understand their needs and habits then losing them could be detrimental.  This is why I provide design service to other landscape businesses, so that when the...

Drone’s and Aerial Photography in Landscaping

DRONE Photography is the new rave.  It has opened up so many possibilities.  Now available to the public, a drone equipped with a camera, can be flown over a property where a renovation is taking place (with permission by the property  owner).  This allows the builder and owner to see the changes to the property from a totally different perspective.  When I photographed the finished product of a landscape design using my phone or a regular camera, it was difficult to showcase the changes from ground view.  I just needed to get 10 feet higher, or even higher in some cases.  Now I can take high definition (HD) pictures and video with my qaudcopter, from 10 feet to a 100 feet in the air.  It’s gorgeous, and it will shock you when you see the quality.   Check out Dusil Design (YouTube) for edited landscape design videos...

OUTDOOR FURNITURE SALES!!!

OUTDOOR FURNITURE SALES!!! The sales are on for outdoor furniture!  I know it can be really expensive to furnish your outdoor space.  Perhaps now the piece you admired is on sale. Gone are the days that we have a barbecue and a dining set only.  Take a trip to the pool centres, gardens centres, and even Canadian Tire and check out the furniture they are unloading to make room for 2015.  A chaise, a recliner, a couch.  You definitely need one to furnish your porch, or patio.  The only way you will lounge outside is if there is somewhere comfy to sit on with your coffee and read the newspaper.  It’s Me Time (for maybe 30 minutes).  It’s worth the investment!...
