How did you get started with your landscaping business and what do you like about operating in North Vancouver?
Starting at a young age, I was accepting summer landscaping jobs here and there. After graduating high school, I found myself at a private golf course for a full-time position. This position opened the world of landscaping to me aside from the maintenance portion. Moving from the golf course, I worked for a reputable design and build company starting on a shovel. I saw the potential to get very creative with your hands, and design-wise. I had mentioned to my boss that I was thinking about landscape architect school, and from there I self-taught myself the programs and with help from my boss gave me pointers on landscape design in general.
Moving to a design and sales position, I saw the industry from another perspective again, leading me to create PNW Land Design as a full-service landscape design company. We are now branching into becoming a design and build company. I like operating in the North Vancouver area because the natural beauty and surroundings allow your creative thoughts and intuition to really flow. This reflects nicely on the homeowner’s property, and in return makes for some very beautiful projects.
What are the custom yard design and landscaping services that you offer to customers?

What makes your business different than similar businesses in your industry?
We believe we are different from other companies as we do our best to really listen to the client, and what they envision their property being once completed with PNW. We take absolutely everything into consideration with our consulting, and will definitely suggest our own ideation to direct the client in the right direction.
