Make your outdoors great at KOTT

By Jake Davies - West Carleton Online

CARP – For years KOTT’s Landscaping Products Sales Centre has been the go-to for Ottawa’s west end contractors and their experience can also serve the homeowner as well.

KOTT at 3186 Carp Rd. has been providing landscaping stone and interlock for more than 30 years, and have added natural stone, sod, lighting products and brown pressure treated lumber to the mix in the last couple of years.

Their experience will help you get your outdoor project done on time, on budget and looking beautiful.

“We’re supply, but we know all the best contractors in the west end,” said Julie Gauvin, a KOTT sales associate who was voted the Landscape Ontario Salesperson of the Year. “We’re all local folks here so we know everybody.”

KOTT does not do design, but their knowledge and experience is invaluable for the homeowner starting a do it yourself project.

“It’s very personal,” sales associate Tiffany Burgess said of landscaping projects. “We can give some guidance, but ultimately the product selections are up to the homeowner.”

With products from leading manufacturers like Permacon and Techo-Bloc (stone), Manderley (sod), Kichler (lighting), GeoSynthetics and Alliance (base and prep), there is no doubt your outdoor project will be the talk of the community.

“Bring in a photo, know what your square footage is, and we’ll be able to get you started in the right direction and maybe even give you an idea or two,” Gauvin said.

Site manager Chris McGregor says, once you decide on a project, and choose your products, you’ll be hard at work in no time.

“We can generally do next day delivery,” McGregor, who has been with KOTT for 13 years, said. “If we don’t have the product here, maybe two to three days. For contractors, our team is very experienced. They know we can get them in and out quickly. Landscaping is a compressed season. I believe our service is the best. Whether you want advice, knowledge, we have a lot of experience.”

If you are just at the idea stage of your landscaping product, you can cruise by the yard at any time. The new outdoor displays are accessible 24/7, so you can come have a look at KOTT’s products whenever the mood strikes you. And they’re dog friendly. Although you must visit during store hours to get a doggie treat.

As the landscaping season picks up steam for the 2019 season, business hours are Monday to Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. You can give them a call at 613-839-7000.
