Edible Landscaping was founded in Ottawa in 2013. This year, we are looking forward to building bigger and better edible landscapes for families throughout the Ottawa region.
Gavin Morrison is the owner, designer and builder – he does all the heavy lifting so you don’t have to! Growing up in Eastern Ontario, Gavin spent his childhood summers digging in his parents’ vegetable patch. He and his father spent many a sun-soaked summer’s day improving and building upon their family property.
Fast-forward a few years and Gavin and his wife Erin were living in Barrhaven raising a young family. Gavin found himself craving the juicy, fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables that came from his family garden so he did what any die hard do-it-yourself-er would do: he built his own garden.
Word spread and before long, Gavin built a similar garden for a friend. Then he was asked to build a deck with planters filled with edibles. Soon Gavin was flooded with requests to work his organic magic in the backyards of families across Ottawa.
A teacher by trade, Gavin is passionate about sharing his knowledge about living and eating sustainably, no matter how much property his clients have. In thinking outside the box, Gavin crafts creative custom designs for every family he meets. From container gardens on balconies to nurturing edibles in the shade; from traditional backyard gardens to vertical planting systems, if Gavin builds it, the plants will grow.
