About Us

By combining the science of horticulture with expert organic gardening practices, we are masters at creating outdoor spaces for entertainment and relaxation which are as functional as they are beautiful.

Our Story

We are a full-service landscape company built from 24 years of organic gardening.

In 1998, after 10 years of studying horticulture and working in gardens around the Greater Toronto Area, Teresa Matamoros founded Garden Holistics. 6 years later, finding she was spending too much time in her truck getting from site to site instead of nurturing the plants she loved, Teresa boldly moved the business to the shores of southern Georgian Bay in 2004. It was – quite literally – a breath of fresh air!

At the time, Teresa’s son, Gabriel, had been developing his passion for landscape construction in Vancouver, BC. He jumped at the opportunity to move back to Ontario and join as a partner in the business. This mother-son team have worked together over the last 18 years to expand Garden Holistics Inc. into a full-service landscape company serving the Thornbury, Clarksburg, Blue Mountain, Collingwood and Meaford areas.

By combining the science of horticulture with expert organic gardening practices, we are masters at creating outdoor spaces for entertainment and relaxation which are as functional as they are beautiful.

We maximize our positive impacts on the environment by creating our own organic compost with the herbaceous and small woody material removed during garden and lawn cleanups. We complete work by hand as often as possible instead of using gas-powered machines, and we use only organic fertilizers.

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. “
