ELVES - Creative Waterwise Gardening

Formerly MICHELE’S ELVES, Michele and Nicole are now the ‘Elves’ that attend to your gardening needs.

Why we get hired: 

  • We show up when we say we will
  • We are consistently hard workingIf the weather is prohibitive for working we will contact you to cancel and reschedule
  • We know what we are doing
  • We are honest, if we don’t know something we’ll tell you and then find out the answer
  • We are always learning and bringing more knowledge to the job site 
  • Our references are Gabriolans and numerous.

With our climate changing and living on an island where ground water is at a premium we have and continue to gain knowledge on gardening with low water resources. Drought and deer tolerant plants are numerous and beautiful.

Our goal is to work with you  ‘editing’ what is no longer workable or wanted, and adding what will now serve your needs. Whether your garden needs are maintaining what is already established, getting help with a clean-up or looking at ways to reduce water usage in your garden, we are here to assist you.

In general Nicole and Michele are the primary service providers, but other helpers are sometimes brought in, depending on the job requirements, with clients’ consent.  If a job requires more muscle power than we can safely give, we bring along extra helpers. Many hands make lighter work and healthier bodies.

Michele learned through apprenticeship under Mary-Ellen of ‘Neat As A Pin’ Gardening Services and adds on to her knowledge all the time. Michele has now been gardening on Gabriola for 8 years now. In 2017 Nicole joined the team as an apprentice, and took to gardening like a duck to water. A fast learner she is an invaluable wee elf, and continues to gain knowledge as well. As all gardeners know, we will all be compost long before we have learnt all  there is to learn in a garden, but what a beautiful, joyful, fulfilling adventure it is. 

We look forward to being of service.
