It was all about starting with her two bare hands.

A project in the nurturing now complete, the owner of Bare Hands, Mel McCutcheon is ready to get things rolling for spring.

McCutcheon, who worked for the District of Fort St. James before pursuing her dream of owning her own business, decided that she would take a big leap and pursued Bare Hands full-time.

The landscaping and design business has been operating since Aug., 2012.

Now that spring has sprung, McCutcheon is excited about another season.

“We offer all sorts of services including spring and fall clean up, gutter/eaves cleaning, installation of planters, flower beds, sod, mulch and lawn care, pruning and debris removal,” McCutcheon said.

Bare Hands also offers tree topping and falling services which is new this year.

“We all take great care and pride on every landscape project, from the simplest planting bed or lawn installation, to large-scale residential and commercial projects,” McCutcheon said.

On top of providing great learning opportunities for summertime employment, Bare Hands has already won a number of awards including two Business Excellence Awards.

“I’ve been really lucky and so thankful for my family and friends, for all the community support, our amazing staff, clients and current and past employees.”

“We’re very team oriented and have lots of fun,” McCutcheon said.

McCutcheon, 35, is also a custodian property agent for Ydenberg Properties Limited.

“They needed an agent and I needed a space. I proposed sharing a space and now we have a face in the community.”

“It’s really exciting. We now have a new truck, a new store front, new contracts and another season to look forward to.”
