We (Bob and Rowena Burns) have decided that it is time to look toward retirement and make a move closer to our children and grandchildren. We have always felt grateful that owning Burns Water Gardens means living in a fantastic Victorian home, surrounded by beautiful ponds, forest and wildlife. Our dedicated staff shares our passion for water gardening; watching for the first blooms in the spring, enjoying the fragrance of the tropical waterlilies in the greenhouses and sharing in the joy of discovering baby fish in the ponds. We enjoy meeting new customers as they design their own ponds and look forward to visiting with them each year when they bring their pictures and stories to share. After the customers and staff head home we relax in our tranquil rural setting, swimming in summer and enjoying the country lifestyle during the peaceful winter months.
If this is your dream lifestyle too we would love for you to be the new owners of Burns Water Gardens. We are looking for someone with a passion for water gardening to continue to build Burns Water Gardens' reputation for knowledge, great customer service, excellent plants and reliable good quality products. Please contact Bob or Rowena at 905-372-2737 or email info@burnswatergardens.ca. While we search for the perfect people to take over Burns Water Gardens, we are open as usual and we continue to have Everything for your pond - except the water. Check back on our website throughout the summer for updates or sign up to keep in touch.

Walk among the fountains and ponds surrounded by native trees, wildflowers and birds while you enjoy the vivid waterlilies and gliding fish.
