Business operating in Lynn Valley since: 2014

What do your customers like about your business?
Our customers like our friendly skilled workers, the way we pay attention to detail, and that we always keep our job sites clean.

What do you like about your customers?
Our customers are lovely people. They are incredibly welcoming to myself and the crew, and are always excited to get involved in the project.

Can you give us a handy tip?
When considering adding a retaining wall to your property, make sure to research materials. A concrete block will give more support and last longer than any wood or timber. Although the cost is more up front, it ends up being better value in the long run.

Any hobbies?
Hockey, snowboarding, and spending time working in my yard.

What about community involvement?
We sponsor and decorate two Christmas trees during the holiday season – one at Lynn Valley Village supporting the Lynn Valley Lions Club and the other at the Dundarave Festival of Lights supporting the Lookout Shelter.

Tell us something I bet we don’t know about you!
I was born and raised on the North Shore.

What has the business taught you?
The importance of clear communication. Also, there are no short cuts – do everything 100% the first time around.

What are your future plans?
Keep growing the business, making people happy with beautiful outdoor spaces.
