Quality matters!

“Fraser StrataCare has been working for our Strata of 191 townhomes in Surrey for the past two years.  Prior to them coming on board, we had many issues around our complex related to landscaping.  Fraser StrataCare has improved the landscaping of our Strata significantly and continues to provide exceptional service and is proactive in their approach to ensure our landscaping is well maintained.  We would highly recommend them for any size complex”.

Karen Reid Sidhu, President Terrane

 

“I have been working with FSC for over 7 years.  FSC have always supplied an honest day’s work, have always been adaptive to our needs and provide excellent value to my clients.  They are well structured, well managed and easy to deal with.  Management at FSC is conscientious about  planning and advises my clients of future issues in a proactive fashion.  Among strata landscaping firms, these guys are top notch.”

Brendan Materi

“Fraser StrataCare has done our strata landscape maintenance for the last10 years or more. During my 5 ½ years of responsibility we have had a pleasant relationship. Their crew has been doing excellent landscape maintenance work. They respond positively when special maintenance requests are made”.

Ted Janzen – On behalf of Churchill Park Council

 

“Stoneridge Strata is a 15 year old community of 36 homes of which 26 are detached and 5 are duplex style units.  Over the years, Stoneridge has employed several different landscaping companies.  They all promised the best service for the most reasonable price.  However, once the contracts were signed, the problems and excuses for poor performance were always the same.

Fraser Stratacare Ltd. came to our attention around this time period and a decision was made by council to give this company a try.  Right from the beginning, the quality and service exceeded all previous landscaping companies.  One of the main differences is that Fraser Strata care Ltd. employs their staff full time.  This enables employees to have a career in landscaping which means steady employment, benefits and progression if deserved.

Stoneridge Strata has retained the services of Fraser Strata care for approximately 5 years to date and overall we have been very satisfied”.

Derek Hudson, President

Stoneridge Council, Surrey, B.C.

White Picket Fence

White Picket Fence
We all know that the “White Picket Fence” is a meaning of a perfect life. The white picket fence is a state of mind where a person blindly holds on to the idea of their perfect lifestyle, regardless of the inevitable life factors. Growing up in the Vancouver area the white picket fence always reminded us of a perfect home and family and always wanted one of our very own! Well now you too can have one! Below is a great picture of one of our little White Picket Fences!

This house now has a safe yard for their children to play and accents the house perfectly! It is clean and easily cleaned, there is really little maintenance with having a beautiful fence like this one. We also have a nicely shaped cedar hedge that we cleanly shaped!

4 Landscaping Tips to match your lifestyle

Landscaping can glamorize a home and give it curb appeal making a lasting first impression! When first thinking about landscaping in the Vancouver area we must first decide the purpose for the design, you might want to have privacy with a new fence, or noise control, curb appeal, a deck to entertain while others may want to grow food not lawns or maybe a combination! Whatever the intention, without a proper plan your efforts might not be enhancing a home it might hinder and end up making a lot of extra work for you in the end.

Tip #1. Make a proper plan

Planning is crucial for any project to really go well! Taking pictures or keeping clippings from magazines for the type of landscape you like, writing down certain colours and feelings of how you want to feel will help landscapers tremendously! Building a portfolio will give your landscaper a great understanding of the look you are trying to accomplish. Do a little research if you would like on the type of trees you like and understand the root structures, if they are evergreen, deciduous or if you want colour year around, it is a good idea to visit nurseries, parks and maybe even take some pictures of yards and landscapes that you really like! Perhaps the landscaper might even take you to a nursery to check out some of the plants to get a better feel for what the client likes and will put it together for you!

Tip #2 Landscape must match your lifestyle 

Be realistic: It’s important to acknowledge what is possible as well as not to go overboard with too many design features. Match your lifestyle and your financial comfort. Each Landscape design different and unique to its own and with every design comes maintenance. Realizing that this is the reality some will spend considerable amounts of time pruning, spraying, digging, weeding, mowing depending on the design……Perhaps all this work doesn’t fit your lifestyle, and you want a low maintenance landscape. Or better yet keep a well manicured design by setting up a scheduled yearly service.

Tip #3 Think in phases:

Not everything has to be done all at once. If you budget for one or two renovations every year, you may find that the overall landscape makeover is more affordable. Budget isn’t always an issue, so getting back to Tip#1 a well laid plan will help with an open communication. This will help communicate with the home owners what the team is doing and what stage they are at for completing the job.

Tip #4Consult a landscaping professional:

It will work out far cheaper than having to remove and redo a badly done job. Besides, the landscaping designer will be able to advise you about how best you can phase in the installation. Or better yet do it for you!

 

We understand our clients and work closely through every step of the landscaping process, creating the perfect landscape to match your lifestyle!

3 Tips for a New Fence

3 Tips for a New Fence 

We live in a climate (Lower Mainland: Langley, Surrey, Delta, White Rock/South Surrey and the Tri-Cities area) that is wet almost year round so when we think about building a fence or having one installed wood posts in the ground is not the way to go! Setting the posts in a new fence in concrete will bring the fence sturdiness and a longer life. Especially if the fence itself is cared for properly and treated throughout the seasons. We have seen many fences over time that need replacing, upgrading or simply just a new fence all together, no matter your situation we would love to give you 3 tips for a new fence in concrete.

Before you build

First, consider why you’re building the fence and if this is really something you want to accomplish on your own or hire a trusted company that specializes in fence construction. There are many valid reasons: to demarcate property lines, to gain privacy, to contain pets or kids, or keep them away from a pool, for gardening or beautification. Once you determine the purpose, you should:

 

1. CHECK LOCAL BUILDING CODES. Contact your town hall or city’s zoning office to learn about easements, height restrictions, setbacks, or any other regulations that you must adhere to. Sometimes asking for forgiveness after the fact works however not usually when you are dealing with city bylaws and building codes!

2. CHECK YOUR PROPERTY LINES. Look at your survey or plot plan (you should receive this with your home’s closing papers) to confirm where your lot begins and ends. If there is any uncertainty, think about hiring a land surveyor to double check the lines. Get them secured because no one likes to do things twice!

3. TALK TO YOUR NEIGHBORS. Out of courtesy, it’s always a good idea to discuss plans with your neighbors before beginning to build.

“Good fences make good neighbors.” –from Robert Frost’s poem “Mending Wall”
