Quiet Nature of Ayr was the subject of a feature article in the Kitchener-Waterloo Record, highlighting the Landscape Ontario member’s use of battery-powered lawn mowers as well as hand tools.

Two years ago, the business moved to a four-hectare property in Ayr. Derek Lippert, president, says he plans to turn the land into a demonstration of sustainable landscapes. “We are planning on seeding it with wildflower meadows and trails, gardens and everything sustainable in landscaping.”

The article quotes Lippert, “My generation is looking forward to buying homes and running businesses. They have this environmentally aware mindset and we want to meet them on that path.”
