The Carmelites, a Roman Catholic Religious Order, came to the Falls in 1875. The first residence for the Carmelites was a simple farm house on the side of the escarpment across from the Shrine of Our Lady of Peace, overlooking Niagara Falls. This building was demolished around 1935 to make way for Portage Road. Construction on the present Monastery building began in 1894. The original purpose was to serve as a hospice and retreat centre.
Looking to add a touch of greenery to their historic grounds, the director of Mount Carmel in partnership with Lincoln Landscape reached out to Devron to find the perfect solution.
Seeing how their was a need for fencing on the Stanley avenue side of the building, it was a no-brainer to choose our Green Living Fences as the perfect product for the job. Even during the installation, multiple residents made the point to add their feedback, indicating how the fences were adding an extra touch of beauty to the site.
Please take a look below to see some of our photos of the installation. Stay tuned for pictures of the final result! Hop on to our social media and let us know what you think!

Earlier this year, Devron Sales supplied 300 feet of Shoresox™ for an installation along the Niagara River. It was in a heavily eroded area that residents use as a beach front.
Without excessively disrupting the area, the Town of NOTL wanted a cost effective, permanent erosion control system that could instantly reclaim land and had a vegetated look over time. Shoresox™ System achieved all of those requirements, while being quick to install, easy to use and aesthetically pleasing.
Please take a look at the video above to see how the Shoresox™ System was able to reclaim the lost land of this eroded Niagara River shoreline. Let us know if you need more information or if you have an application that could benefit from the Shoresox™ Erosion Control System!
Devron Sales Ltd. supplied Flexamat® for a Beamsville school project at St- Marks. Please click here to view our recent case study on the installation. We were pleased with how easy the process was and how quickly that amazing results were achieved.
See below for a video demonstration on how this installation was accomplished.
