cultivating exceptional spaces

design, installation & maintenance in the Headwaters Region


The Local Gardener is a boutique gardening company, offering our clients ornamental and kitchen garden design, installation and maintenance in the Caledon and Orangeville area. We take pride in our personal and professional service.


Our company began in 2010 when Matt Gove, an experienced estate gardener, decided to start a small business that allowed him to combine his love for outdoor spaces and deep respect for natural and sustainable gardening methods with a personalized approach for customers.

Our gardens complement the incredible abundance of natural features of the Niagara Escarpment and nearby areas and are tended with care using organic and environmentally friendly methods. 

We serve our clients in a friendly and personal manner to ensure their full enjoyment and connection to the exquisite moments that occur in their gardens.

Careful planting in the garden ensures ongoing blooms and seasonal harvests.

We create ornamental gardens with high quality, hand-selected nursery stock, planted carefully to produce blossoming views throughout the seasons.

We also grow organic and heirloom vegetables for clients in their kitchen gardens, planted in succession to provide abundant harvests and maximize garden yields.




Quality garden maintenance practices include weeding, watering, deadheading, picking up debris, staking plants, pruning, and proper care of any annual plantings. Spring and fall clean-up and winterization are also available.

We also offer soil amendments to promote beneficial soil conditions including, mulch, compost and organic nutrients.

Our pest control services are natural and organic.
