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.  

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.

Down To Earth Landscaping

Before

"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.).

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.
