Our newly ICPI certified paving team continues to offer a minimum 2 year guarantee on all stone work, and yes we put it in writing and yes we will be in business and wont have changed our company name to get out of any possible warranty claims. 

While the finished products may look the same, all the work goes into the bases and by building them above industry mimimums, we can offer the types of the assurances that lead the industry. 

We always take the time to explain exactly what we are going to be doing and update you throughout.

I cant forget to add we do have references.

Our black granite boulders have arrived.  We have the largest and flattest boulders in the city.  Sizing goes from 3 feet across right up to 4-5 feet across.  We have boulders that are great accent pieces (rounder shape) and many that are very flat (great for stand alone boulders), also easy to affix addresses to.  Pricing depends on how many are sold as package (usually sell 3 in a group) and the size.  Picked up they start at $400.00.  Call us at 204 793 6941 to arrange viewings.  Our garden centre is open by appointment only.

Congratulations to Shelby Hilderman for completing his ICPI Certification.  The “Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute” held its certification courses in Winnipeg this past April and Shelby scored at the very top of his class. 

We are doing driveways, sidewalks, patio’s with bookings still open for June and July.

By doing these jobs according to, or above industry standards we are able to offer industry leading guarantees on our workmanship.

Beware of the price cutter! 

With the rapid growth in the home building industry many new contractors have entered our trade.  Many are reputable, but others are trying to cash in and get out quick. 

Hilderman’s Lawn & Garden didn’t succeed by overcharging clients.  We make appointments to review your yard plans, we keep those appointments.  We communicate when we will start and stay on time.  We also ensure yards are done properly, using only the best quality materials.  Case in point…our edging carries a 25 year guarantee, our geo-textile/weed barrier is commercial grade, unlike garden centre product.  Our sod is cut daily for our orders and delivered directly to your yard…we also have industry leading no hassle guarantees.  We don’t scrimp on the amount of soil or rock we put down and  all our trees/shrubs are from Manitoba nurseries…in short we just don’t cut corners. Others will use old garden centre sod, trees/shrubs from big box stores (grown elsewhere in Canada) and will scrimp in other important areas.

We know that your home is a major investment and we don’t want you to be unhappy with your finished yard in a year, or two.  Yards can always be done cheaper…if we cheated you on soil, used old garden centre sod, low quality edging and geo-textile and cut all sorts of corners your yard would probably look similar…at least until we left.  

We want you to be happy for the long term.  I think you will enjoy the experience of working with us.  Please take the time to collect several quotes, compare apples to apples and think through all the aspects of a project like this and what you want in a contractor.  If you want professional and courteous treatment, fair prices and superior workmanship give us a call.

Check our testimonials and learn how pleased our clients are with their finished yards.

Once again we have come up with a creative summer special. Clients will be able to pick between having us supply and plant one 10 gallon deciduous tree, or save the GST on the total cost of the landscaping.

This offer covers new bookings made prior to the end of July.

Call today as we still have openings for July/August.

Starting in the spring, we will be offering complete yard care packages.  Our offerings range from basic grass cutting, to flower bed treatments, tree & shrub pruning. 

Why consider us when there are so many others offering what seems like the same services?

We’d like to thank all our great clients, suppliers and staff who have supported us all these years and got to this new chapter.  We have opened our garden centre at # 60 Poneida Rd. in West St. Paul.  It backs onto the north side of the perimeter between McPhillip’s & Pipeline. 

We have a growing selection of large landscape boulders, all sorts of natural limestone slabs (purple & blonde), as well as 1 1/2 inch River Rock.  The yard isn’t open daily, but can be open with an appointment.

Mowing is the most misunderstood part of lawn care. It’s important to remember that the best defense against weeds is a thick, healthy lawn. Begin mowing your new lawn after the grass has grown to a height of 3-4 inches. Cutting is best done with a reel type mower, or a non mulching mower. The vacuum generated by today’s mulching mowers can be harmful to a new lawn. If you have a mulching mower, set the throttle low and cut slowly the first few times. Your first mowing should just remove enough of your lawn to achieve and even appearance (maybe cut 1⁄2-3/4 of an inch). The second cut should be no more than 30% off the total leaf. Do not mow your new lawn for at least 10-15 days after planting. Again, for the second and third cuts keep your throttle set low to avoid pulling on the lawn. With proper cutting, watering and weed management a Hilderman’s lawn will provide many many years of enjoyment!
