Landscape Ontario's Windsor Chapter completed a garden makeover for the Monk family in Amherstburg, Ont. on April 24, 2021. The Monk family received garden makeover when firefighter Brad and pharmacist Laura Renaud were selected as the Windsor Chapter's frontline heroes last summer, but made the generous decision to pay it forward to the Monks. In total, 10 garden makeovers are being carried out across the province as part of a Landscape Ontario initiative to give back to frontline workers during the Covid-19 pandemic.
