My Journey into Landscaping started about 10 years ago. I purchased our current home and it needed everything!
At the time I was working for Shaw Cable, so in my spare time I personally did a full renovation of the interior. This covered everything from a new layout to services like plumbing and electrical.
It was about 8 years ago that I met my wife Natasha, who works alongside us on projects and in the office.
We had a neighbor and friend named Syd who owned his own Landscaping company. With his help we transformed the yard, and have continued to work on it in our free time. Syd would always tell me I needed to be a landscaper. I worked with him on many of his jobs, and he could tell I had an eye and passion for it.
We chose the name Back 40 landscaping because it’s a throwback to olden days.
Days where value and quality were in greater supply then today. We feel like it reflects our simple down to earth way of working with our clients.
Our entire philosophy in life is based on smart long-term investments.
Our projects reflect this core principle, both in their function and more importantly their long-lasting design.
We have found over and over again that quality-built landscapes continue to put a smile on your face decades after they were constructed.
An average wood fence will disintegrate in 10-20 years but by using substantially stouter materials and gravel instead of concrete not only will our Estate Fence outlast any home it serves a completely separate purpose than any other fence. It’s a major design and focal point on any property.
Great experiences are never routed in the project itself. More important is the relationship, and service before, during and after the project.
What you value in your project is more important to us than anything else.
We outline the project so you know what to expect.
Personally, we like knowing the status of things in our own life, and we know you do to.
We are always looking for great clients that have similar values as us.
