Founded in 2012, Bare Hands is a seasonal landscaping business servicing both commercial and residential clients in Fort St. James and surrounding areas. Bare Hands offers landscape installations, design consultation, tree services, and lawn and garden maintenance services.
Originally a home-based business, Bare Hands was primarily operated part-time by owner and founder Mel McCutcheon. But as demand grew, this sole proprietorship expanded into a reputable business with a full crew of skilled staff.
Bare Hands and Ydenberg Properties Ltd. have partnered locally to offer a convenient central storefront location in Fort St. James.
