Landscaping Supplies and Specialties
We spent years growing a landscape design & construction business before we became experts in product distribution. Our experience in the field taught us what we needed to know about which brands/products/systems work and which simply don’t. Thirty years later and we’re still serving the green industry by supplying the products and systems that work.
PRODUCTS FOR THIS CATEGORY.
Ecoraster Permeable Paving
Ecoraster ground reinforcement or permeable paving is an ecofriendly and cost-effective alternative to traditional permeable and non-permeable paving surfaces. Ecoraster is made from 100% recycled plastic, and its interlocking blocks are easy to install. After installation, Ecoraster is filled with sand, gravel, soil, or turf to grade – Ecoraster BLOXX are filled with paving stones. The result is a durable surface, absorbing rainwater without puddling, ponding, or mud. It also prevents potholes, digging, and pawing. Finally, unlike traditional paving solutions, Ecoraster surfaces do not crack, flake, or break. Geosynthetic Systems stocks multiple Ecoraster grades and colors, resistant up to 70 tons per square foot.
Ecoraster ground reinforcement suitable for driveways, parking areas, footpaths, cycling lanes, indoor and outdoor equestrian riding areas, cattle pens, outdoor kennels, dog runs, green roofs, anywhere structured soil is needed. Ecoraster can also easily be implemented in temporary installations, such as equestrian shows and seasonal public events. As a permanent structured soil retention device, Ecoraster is ideal for temperature and climate extremes, durable and flexible for foot, animal, machine, and vehicle traffic – Ecoraster is even resistant to snowplows.
These rugged mats are made of 1/2” thick recycled polyethylene so they are virtually indestructible. They withstand vehicles weighing up to 120 tons, bend but do not break and they feature a Limited Lifetime Warranty. AlturnaMATS have been tested in record cold and heat.

Using a synthetic commercial grade landscape fabric in planting beds, beneath mulch or as a separator in gravel paths, gardeners and landscapers gain several advantages, including moisture retention, soil temperature moderation, reduced weed growth, etc. We offer commercial grade GreenLine woven geotextile, which won’t rip or tear (as do the varieties available in retail stores) and has limitless applications. Our Greenline is available in 3’, 6’ and 12’ rolls as well as by the metre. In addition to the synthetic products, we offer burlap, which is used for numerous purposes, including as concrete curing blankets and for winter protection for trees, bushes and shrubs. Our burlap is 100% natural jute, practical and economical. It is available in 7oz. and 10oz. weights, 2 convenient roll sizes, is re-usable and easy to install.
Plastic and Aluminum Lawn EdgingWe stock both 20’ lengths and 100’ rolls of commercial grade black plastic lawn edging as well as fittings. We also carry industry leader SureLoc Aluminum lawn edging in mill or black anodized finish (other colours available by special order), in various heights, thicknesses and lengths.
Hand ToolsContractors spoke and we listened. We offer only top-of-the-line professional grade, superior strength hand tools by Wolverine. Their standard and specialty tools are created using superior materials such as chromoly steel, aircraft aluminum, pultruded fiberglass and ash or hickory hardwoods. With a one year limited warranty, these tools stand the test of time, eliminating the need for replacement.
Steel Window WellsCorrugated steel window wells are available in widths from 24” to 120” and numerous depths and projections. We stock the largest variety and quantity in Eastern Ontario, and offer the lowest prices in the area.
Boman Kemp Window Well
Most basements are dark because they have very small windows, if any, but larger windows and window wells are an excellent way to allow for more light in sub-grade basement construction. Even larger basement windows and larger egress window wells allow for a secondary escape route in case of fire, flood, or another emergency. The typical window well is constructed of corrugated galvanized steel, with all the appeal of living in a drainage ditch. While these may be fine for emergency exits, they are not aesthetically pleasing.
We are pleased to announce the introduction of Boman Kemp window wells, a modern and attractive take on the window well. What makes Boman Kemp window wells different is the weatherproof grey “stone wall” interior finish, something more attractive than corrugated steel. Future tenants will enjoy the extra light and safety that a Boman Kemp window well provides, as well as be more likely to leave the curtains open.
EARTH AND MARINE ANCHORS
What do you need to anchor? For anchoring applications ranging from light-medium capacity (tree guying, root balls and theft deterrence), to medium-heavy capacity (utility poles, gabion baskets, boat moorings, revetment mats), to heavy capacity (transmission towers, sheet piles, excavation shoring), we’ve got you covered with Duckbill®, Manta Ray® and Stingray®.
Saving time and labor, patented DUCKBILL® earth anchors work like toggle bolts in soil. They are driven into the ground with no holes, no digging, and minimal soil disturbance creating a safe and environmentally sensitive installation. With an upward pull, the anchor tendon rotates the DUCKBILL into a perpendicular “anchor lock” position in undisturbed soil resulting in superior holding capacities.
MANTA RAY® earth anchors are driven tipping plate soil anchors for reaction of tensile loads. MANTA RAY anchors have ultimate capacities up to 20 tons. The beautifully simple, effective and low cost MANTA RAY anchor system represents a major breakthrough in anchoring technology with a multitude of uses in the utility, civil engineering and marine markets.
STINGRAY earth anchors are the perfect solution for applications with heavy capacity requirements because they provide superior holding for civil construction jobs, excavation shoring and tieback.
