Summer landscaping budget on track despite record rainfall

Carleton’s summer landscaping work remains on budget despite suffering delays due to Ottawa’s record rainfall this summer. According to Kevin Gallinger, Carleton’s director of maintenance services, the $40,000 annual landscaping budget covers buying flowers, trees, shrubs, tools, fertilizers and other items. However, he said the budget does not include labour costs. Gallinger said Carleton switched landscaping contractors to Cedar Springs Limited in November 2016 after its previous contract with Greenbelt ended.

According to Gallinger, this summer’s landscaping projects […]
