We are proud to service Waterdown and its surrounding neighbourhoods in The Regional Municipality of Hamilton-Wentworth. The town is a part of East Flamborough Township on the edge of the Niagara Escarpment. The town is located in between East of Hamilton and West of Burlington; a community near The Greenbelt and north of Lake Ontario, and easily accessible off of Ontario’s QEW highway. We have provided top quality lawn care service and lawn maintenance to Waterdown residents for over 40 years.
Waterdown has an interesting history, as much of its expansion and development came about during the Industrial Revolution. Its early settlers during the 1860’s were industrialists who owned sawmills and gristmills. The growth was planned by Ebenezer Griffin, the community’s early leader who helped plan the Village of Waterdown. The town remained municipality control until it was absorbed into the Township of Flamborough in 1974, which included the amalgamation of East Flamborough, West Flamborough and Beverly.
Eventually, Waterdown became a community in the larger city of Hamilton. In 2001, the new city formed the Regional Municipality of Hamilton-Wentworth with six municipalities: Hamilton, Ancaster, Dundas, Flamborough, Glanbrook, and Stoney Creek.
Waterdown has a very unique landscape. The land near the parts of East Flamborough are mostly agricultural, its fertile lands are mostly used for farming. However, the properties near South Waterdown, differs quite significantly and you don’t have to travel far to see these changes. Its landscape consists mostly of rock and clay; a potentially difficult environment to work in due to its consistency.
However, Waterdown is a hidden gem when it comes to natural parks and conservation areas. Since the town is located on top of the Niagara Escarpment, it’s a part of the famous Bruce Trail; the longest and oldest marked hiking trail in Ontario, with over 890 km available. When hiking in Waterdown, you can reach a higher incline to take in views of the Beverly Swamp which is a diverse biogeographic region. On the Bruce Trail, you’ll also find Waterdown’s famous Great Falls, also known as Smokey Hollow Falls. The waterfalls gets its name from a sawmill originally powered by the falls in the late 1950’s until the 1970’s – smoke would slowly rise from its hollow mill. If you want to get in tune with nature, Waterdown has many wetland trails in the eastern part of the town. For amateur botanists and horticulturists, you can find many national and regionally rare flora species that grow in the natural areas of Waterdown.
