"LNS Remembers" is a new Landscape Nova Scotia program started in 2017. 

Through the program, our members made donations of landscaping to sites associated with veterans and Remembrance Day, such as legion branches, cemeteries with veterans, and cenotaphs and memorials where Remembrance Day services take place.  Donations could include anything that the companies and the local Royal Canadian Legion branch felt was
 appropriate (i.e. lawn care, planting or cleaning up gardens, hardscaping, decorating a site for Remembrance Day, etc.).

Amherst Legion

On September 4, 2017 the Fairview Legion hosted the only flag ceremony in Nova Scotia for the Invictus Games.  Wounded or sick arms services personnel compete in the games. 


Edmonds Landscape and Construction Services did a general clean-up of the legion’s landscaping to help prepare for the flag ceremony.  Edmonds has since returned to the legion several times to do additional work.

Lunenburg Legion

Clintar Landscape Management did pruning, edging, weeding and mulching in the gardens at the Porters Lake cenotaph in preparation for Remembrance Day.  Clintar also replaced part of the lawn.

Weed Man did a round of lawn care services on the cenotaph property.  The services included fertilization, weed control, aeration and liming.  Weed Man is also going to donate lawn care services to the Eastern Marine Branch (Gaetz Brook) for the 2018 season.

Edmonds Landscape and Construction Services 

Construx Landscaping and Excavation removed all of the existing weeds and soil in Sackville legion’s planters and replaced it with garden soil and ornamental grasses.  They also patched in soil and sod on the lawn, fixed ruts and low spots and cleaned up where construction debris was left from previous roadwork.  Two new flower beds were built, one on each side of the monument, with lilac shrubs and daylilies.

Bloom Greenhouse donated most of the plants and the soil was contributed by Kel-Ann Organics.  Sod was donated by Granview Farm.   Nutri-Lawn provided granular fertilizer, lime and core aeration services prior to Remembrance Day and is donating a full lawn care program for the 2018 season.  

Eastern Marine Legion (Gaetz Brook)

A Vimy Oak was planted at the Amherst legion in August but, sadly, was destroyed by vandals.  A new Vimy Oak was provided thanks to Landscape New Brunswick and the Vimy Foundation.  Hundreds of Vimy oak saplings have been planted across Canada to honour the 100-year anniversary of the First World War battle, where more than 10,000 Canadian troops were injured or killed.

52 footstones of deceased veterans at the Elm Grove Cemetery were sinking and the Kentville legion was concerned about the physical work involved in raising them.  The legion asked if an LNS member could provide assistance and Wolfville’s Down to Earth Landscaping took the project on.  

Nature’s Reflections Landscaping started taking care of the Lunenburg Legion’s grounds for free in 2016.  The company has done regular maintenance of the legion’s garden, mowed the lawn and planted several dozen Canada 150 Celebration tulips.
