Services: Snow & IceManagement
It is no secret that Nova Scotia winters can be very unpredictable. Whether it is the drastic changes in temperature we experience almost daily, or the sudden snowstorms that materialize out of nowhere, it pays to hire a contractor with experience and a proven track record.
Edmonds has both, as well as an unrelenting dedication to providing premier snow removal and ice management services. We have over a dozen employees who have worked in the snow industry for 25+ years, as well as dependable equipment that is maintained well above standards. We offer both commercial and 12 month residential service contracts. Ice and snow management in winter holds potentially litigious issues. It is no accident that our larger contracts include hospitals, recreational facilities and institutions where safety and risk considerations are paramount! Edmonds contracts up to the minute weather reports from Scotia Weather Services Limited, which works in collaboration with Environment Canada.
Mobile weather watch teams visit institutional, commercial and residential properties starting at 3:00 am. Our salt and brine unit trucks are ready to be mobilized on short notice 24 hours a day. All of our vehicles are equipped with reliable communication devices.

We have been receiving very positive feedback from everyone who is outside on the grounds during our Convocation days. Again many thanks to you and your team for so successfully taking on the challenge of having the campus ready for convocation in the last few weeks.

We had a vision of a stone terrace that reminded us of our favorite café in Barcelona, Spain. Edmonds Landscape professionally guided us with their knowledge and expertise. They listened to our ideas and when asked provided us with excellent advice to get the most out of our space and showed great attention to our level of satisfaction. The outcome was better than we had envisioned.
Edmonds has had the landscape maintenance contract for the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal since 1999. Our landscape contract covers fourteen diverse properties, some with high public visibility such as the Swiss Air Memorial sites, Government House, Province House and the Museum of Natural History. I have an excellent working relationship with the company. Edmonds responds immediately to special requests; work crews are well trained and work is of a very high quality in their attention to detail.

Any of the jobs that I have had done - be they pavers, tree trimming or garden beds, or fence construction - were all done well and I was satisfied…The quality of the workmanship and materials supplied remain long after the cost has been forgotten.
We have contracted with Edmonds for snow removal services for over two dozen properties over the past twenty years. We appreciate that they have sufficient resources in terms of their equipment and that it is consistently in good working order, as well as sufficient labour forces. They also have access to extended resources in the event that extra assistance is required, so that we are not constantly in a position of waiting to be serviced.

The time came for us to give up snow clearance on our double driveway and walks so we decided to contact Edmonds. The service has been outstanding. Our drive and walks have been shoveled and cleared before 6:00 am. In the event that we are 'plowed in' later on, a quick call brings almost immediate results. It has been a great relief to have such good service.
Edmonds has been contracted for seasonal maintenance at many properties that I have managed throughout my 17 year property management career. Edmonds has proven they are capable of looking after all aspects of landscape maintenance and snow removal. Risk management is a large part of my responsibility. Edmonds safety program in my opinion not only leads the industry but also serves as a model for any business.

Edmonds has provided Landscape Maintenance services to Saint Mary’s University for the past many years. The service is provided on a timely basis to meet the needs of our students and is very thorough. They have taken on a true ownership role in terms of the appearance of the Saint Mary’s University grounds.
