Our Story

We have been gardening organically since 1998.

In 1998, after 10 years of learning about horticulture, through school and hands on experience, Teresa Matamoros started Garden Holistics Inc. In 2004, finding too much time was being spent in a truck polluting the environment instead of being spent nurturing the plants that help clean it, Teresa moved the business to the shores of southern Georgian Bay. Teresa’s son, Gabriel, has been a partner in the business since 2004 and has helped to expand Garden Holistics Inc. into a full service landscape company.

By combining the science of horticulture with expert practices, we’re masters at having fun doing what we do best.

Our vision of success includes spaces which enhance our clients’ outdoor enjoyment at home, along with profitable growth to fund our highest career and business potential.

I have many years of landscaping experience working in Vancouver, Toronto and Thornbury. I am a graduate of the Humber College Horticultural Apprenticeship program and the general manager at Garden Holistics Inc.

What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Work

“I discovered Garden Holistics last year when I was certain my lawn was beyond hope. The Fiesta weed killing treatment and aeration made all the difference. The Garden Holistics team were extremely helpful in offering me advice on what I could do myself.

““I started working with Teresa Matamoros (Garden Holistics) in 2010, when I consulted her regarding my goals for our garden. She listened and understood exactly what I was hoping for, then created a design and planting plan to implement my goals. “

“I just wanted to say that I so enjoyed the garden in the spring. There were so many lovely bulbs blooming and they just kept coming, with the palette changing over time. It was just glorious. I especially loved the cooler tones under the pines outside the kitchen. “
