Your Local Green Roof Experts 

Since 2010 Eagle Lake has been the the Licensed LiveRoof Grower for Alberta, Saskatchewan. In 2015 we added Manitoba to our service area in collaboration with the great people at Vanstone Nurseries. To this day We are the only supplier of locally grown Green Roof materials in all Canadian Prairie Provinces. Our team can share their expertise and provide local advice derived from dozens of successful LiveRoof projects in our territory. We also have a Green Roof Professional on our staff (GRP)

Let us help you design, build, implement and maintain a successful Green Roof.

We live in a harsh climate and it's not easy to establish and maintain a healthy green roof, but we have a proven track record of success on the Canadian Prairies. What are the ingredients to our success?


LiveRoof is a proven product. With millions of square feet installed throughout North America and hundreds of thousands of square feet in our territory LIveRoof is a proven product. LiveRoof is a modular green roof system which is supplied to the contractor fully vegetated and provides the building owner with a fully established green roof from day one.

We are truly local. We are the only grower of green roof specific plant material on the Canadian Prairies. Our local presence means that we are here for you when you need us and we are personally invested in the success of all the green roofs we supply. 

We have hard earned expertise. Through 10+ years of plant trials at out farm, involvement with hundreds of local green roofs and our knowledgable staff - we are the local green roof experts. 

Our plants are hardier. While yes our plants are all zone hardy, they are also all outdoor grown. All of our green roof plants are field produced and are not babied in a greenhouse. Why does this matter? not only are our plants fully established with LiveRoof modules, being outdoor grown means that they will not be subject to install shock like greenhouse grown material or field grown product imported from other regions. We can supply green roofs with; Sedums, Native grasses, Wildflowers or ornamental perennials.

We are proud of the projects we have supplied, here are a few of our favourites Project Gallery

Some of our local project highlights 

Big Yellow Bag returns

Those dropping empty bags back to Eagle Lake Professional Landscape Supply’s store location are eligible for a 20% discount on anything purchased within the store, including tools, sod, stone, fertilizer, seed or any bulk products but excluding Big Yellow Bags.

There is no deposit on the bag so therefore no refund for empty bags. We do not pick-up empty bags, but if you would like to recycle the bag, either drop it off at our store location in SE Calgary at 285177 Frontier Road SE or leave the bag out to be picked up the next time we deliver a bag to you.

It starts with the soil

Home Gardening has enjoyed an unprecedented growth in recent years as we have all rediscovered the joys of growing our own food and the mindful benefits of getting away from screens and getting our hands dirty.

We’ve stockpiled our soils and mulches for the season ahead at our sod farm east of Strathmore. Our well-aged compost is now double screened and used in all our blends. This is classified as the highest quality compost by the compost council of Canada so you will get the best product available. We are 100% locally owned and operated, so by shopping here you are supporting local.

If you have any questions, give us a call. We are gardeners too and are happy to offer advice and learn more.

Big Yellow Bag gives back

Eagle Lake Professional Landscape Supply donates a portion of all bag sales from its Big Yellow Bag program each year to The Calgary Children’s Foundation each year.

As Big Yellow Bag customers, you too are making a contribution to the Calgary Children’s Foundation, with over $100,000 donate to date. Since 1992, The Calgary Children’s Foundation has raised money for small but critically important charities that help physically, mentally, financially and socially challenged children reach their full potential. Many of these charities do not have the means to fundraise for themselves or only need a small amount of money to make a big difference in a child’s life. From a pre-school that prepares neglected and abused kids for grade one to a summer camp for special needs children.

We are also proud to support the POWER (Power (Projects Organized with Energetic Retirees) Gardening group. This group of community gardeners have been growing vegetables for the Calgary Food Bank since 1999, and in 2020 harvested 23,000lbs of potatoes, beets, carrots, zucchini and squash from the Get Growing Garden at our production Farm east of Strathmore into BigYellowBags for delivery to the Calgary foodbank.

Additionally, we contribute soil and materials to community gardens, school projects and growing charities each year and will continue to do so. For further info, please contact
