Garden Maintenance

Our Garden Maintenance Experts Are Here to Help

Our outdoor spaces have become an essential extension of our homes, and the pandemic has made this more apparent than ever. For some, garden care can be a nagging chore. Or perhaps life has become too busy to manage all of your home care tasks. Figaro's is here to help, temporarily or long-term.

At the heart of our garden maintenance service is our love of nature and plants. We see every project though this lens, and it is reflected in the communication and care we provide to each of our clients.

On Your Schedule

Whether you need regular monthly maintenance or just an annual spring cleanup (or anything in between), let Figaro’s help support you in managing your residential, strata, or commercial outdoor spaces. (Note: For the 2024 garden season, we have limited spaces remaining for regular maintenance clients (6-10 visits/year). Get in touch below to check for availability.)

Our Expertise

Our garden maintenance duo has over 18 years of combined experience in the horticulture industry. They are skilled in all aspects of taking care of your outdoor spaces — lawn care, tree and shrub pruning, flower bed planting and weeding, pest management, irrigation repair, fertilization, hardscape cleaning, and soil/mulch management.

Environment Commitment

A healthy environment is important for everyone. In many cases, ecological maintenance is easier and less expensive than more environmentally harmful methods, and it produces lusher, healthier and more abundant gardens. We feel an enormous sense of responsibility to care for your space with ecological gardening practices, as one of our guiding principles.

Forward Thinking

We want to grow with you and your garden. Our team has a passion for continually improving our clients' garden spaces, bringing fresh ideas for new plant combinations, seasonal interest, container growing, and when necessary, a garden bed do-over. They have a keen sense of design, and, as plant geeks, are always looking for new and innovative species and cultivars to help you get the most out of your plantings.

Additional Services We Offer:

Helpful Staff: Figaro's Garden is owned and operated by Hartley Rosen with superstar shop staff Conor Preston, Elsa Gregory-Herbold, Camille Sleeman, and Fiona Combey. Our landscape team is Carly Knutson and Elsa Gregory-Herbold. We pride ourselves on offering our customers a level of personal service and expertise that is second to none relative to other garden centres.

Garden Design: A single planter or a whole garden, we can design it for you. We specialize in patio/balcony/small residential growing and refer large-scale projects to colleagues in the industry. Click here for more info.

Wish List: We understand that avid gardeners have specific rare plants that they desire. We maintain a customer wish list and actively try to source desired plants for our clientele. There is, of course, no guarantee that we can find a grower who has what you're seeking, but we'll try our best.

Gardening or Plant Care Advice: We do not promise to be able to answer every question, but we do promise to try. In the spring and summer we also have Master Gardener volunteers on hand most weekends to answer all of your gardening questions. Please ask for a schedule.

Delivery: Within the Vancouver area. Price depends on size of order and distance from the shop. Ask for details.

Workshops and Services: Whether it be a mobile blade sharpening service at Figaro's or a workshop on how to design hanging baskets, we aim to offer a variety of experiences and services that will serve your needs.

Plant or Pest Identification: Please bring a sample into the shop—in a sealed plastic bag to prevent contamination—or simply email us a picture and we will try to identify it for you. ​

Potting: Bring your baskets, pots and planters into the store and we will plant them up for you—either to your specification or perhaps you’d prefer to be surprised—for a nominal fee.

Gift Cards: In any denomination you like, available in-store or ordered over the phone.

Gift Wrapping: We will wrap any plant or gift for you for a nominal fee.

"My go-to neighbourhood garden centre! Friendly, knowledgeable staff without the attitude or expense of other similar stores. Just enough off the beaten path but close enough to home. Make sure to drop by the first Friday of every month for wine and beer while perusing the selection of plants!!!"
