We’ve all been in this position: we want to add some nature and beauty to our yards, but have no idea where to start. What will grow well? Where should I plant? It can be overwhelming! But, fear not, my friends! LEAF is here to help you plant the right tree in the right place.

It’s almost that time of year again – the snow slowly melts away and glimmers of new growth start to appear – spring is near! Here at LEAF, spring is on our minds for most of the winter and we begin to prepare for it well before it arrives.
Trees are valued for the many benefits they provide to our global landscapes. They offer us shade on hot days, provide important habitat and food for our native wildlife, combat climate change by sequestering carbon, increase property value and improve mental health – just to name a few! In honour of Earth Day, I want to share one particular benefit of our trees – their ability to decrease stormwater runoff and filter pollutants!
Mulching is incredibly important for urban trees and shrubs! Aside from being aesthetically pleasing, mulch also has many benefits that can improve the overall health of your garden.
When considering nature, most people think about forests and parks, but did you know that your own yard plays a very important role in supporting wildlife in our cities?
