Tucked into the heart of wine country in Beamsville, Ont., you’ll find the masters of craft and artistry of LandArt, a design/build company dedicated to high-end residential landscapes.
This multiple-award-winning enterprise services the Niagara, Greater Hamilton, and Burlington areas. Marketing and sales manager Devon Kleinjan explained that although they take on projects of varying size and scope, their speciality is larger, multi-year design/builds.
“That allows for a certain level of creativity within the craftsmen who are implementing the project,” Kleinjan said. “We call ourselves full service, but that doesn’t mean that one or two people are doing everything.”
Instead, LandArt brings in sub-contractors for electrical and gas work when necessary and employs expert crews in critical disciplines. “We have a masonry crew that sets up for all stone work,” Kleinjan explained. “They don’t touch any landscape components. The carpentry crews, they specialize in the carpentry items, as well as lighting, They know their craft and they’ve been trained and certified in the different pieces that we’re taking on. Our design team is focused exclusively on design and don’t take on administrative or sales pieces.”
