We are closed on Sundays and statutory holidays (except Victoria Day), and generally keep Saturday work to a minimum, and offer flexible scheduling where required.

    You’d make a great Hardscape Crew Member if…

    You like building things, but not the same thing every day. You like physical work and the sense of accomplishment that comes from seeing a project through from beginning to end, and then moving on to a new and different project. You prefer being outdoors from spring to fall, rather than being behind a desk all day, every day.

    A successful Crew Member likes working as part of a small crew of great men and women, some veteran and some new. Customers would say you are polite and a great communicator when they have a question. And you know how to clean up after yourself.

    You’re looking for a landscaping career, not just a job. A place to develop and grow, not just bring home a pay cheque. You might like to further your skills and understanding by taking courses paid for by your employer.

    People in the community often see you around town, driving from one project to another in a company truck. You like having access to a reliable vehicle while being an ambassador of your employer.

    You’re looking for a competitive, living wage with the opportunity to earn bonuses. As much as you enjoy your work, you also have a personal life, and appreciate an employer who can be flexible and also values work-life balance.
