Looking for a challenge after three decades in a traditional business environment, Ian launched Curbz and has never looked back. He plays an active role in the design and build of landscaping projects. Ian draws great personal satisfaction from transforming spaces for our clients and takes pride in the work of the talented crew members who bring their all to every Curbz project.

Co-Owner

After spending 30 years behind a desk in the corporate world, Jude happily joined Ian in marriage and business as co-owner of Curbz.  Jude oversees the Garden Reno side, handling everything from sales and estimating to crew management and scheduling, plant selection and vendor relations.  As an avid gardener herself, Jude loves nothing better than working with her crews to bring gardens to life.  

When she’s not hard at work for Curbz, you can find Jude scribbling away in her journal or crafting clever new posts for her blog.  This former journalism student even hopes to publish a collection of short stories one day soon.

Even when she's not hard at work for our clients, Alex lives and breathes landscape design. Alex is a member of the Toronto Botanical Gardens and is passionately pursuing certification in horticultural therapy. She holds several different landscaping certifications, including a Certificate in Landscape Design from Ryerson University along with multiple relevant certificates from Landscape Ontario.

Andrew and his wife Natalia are expanding their own crew by adding a new baby to the family this year.

From bricklaying and framing to stone masonry and carpentry, Dave is a skilled foreman and plays an integral role in many of our project builds. He also has multiple industry certifications. There’s no challenge he won’t rise to and Curbz affectionately knows him as the “go to guy” for innovation and problem solving.

Since his very first foray into the world of lawn care, he's worked tirelessly to improve his own skill set and hone his understanding of landscape construction. As Foreman at Curbz he helps train and direct our crewmembers while overseeing projects to completion.

Pat's love for the great outdoors extends to his private life. He takes every chance possible to spend time in nature, and he and his family can often be found relaxing at their cottage. Pat also enjoys music and has a special talent for writing comedy.

"Completely happy with the end result"

We are so happy that we chose Curbz for our front and backyard landscaping project. We have a small city lot and wanted something clean, minimal and modern looking. From the design and planning stage, through the execution and building, to the final result, we were so pleased with the project. The Curbz team was completely professional the whole way through, yet I also felt the personal attention of a smaller company.

"I would happily recommend Curbz"

We had a problem that was beyond our skills. I contacted Ian and discussed the situation, and he agreed that we should meet. He was on time and understood the problem. He had a solution. The job was done efficiently and on budget. I would happily recommend Curbz as a solver or landscaping problems.

"We could not have hired a better contractor"

The designs Curbz created were perfect for our property and the installation services were exceptional. A crew was at the house working on our project every day until it was 100% completed. Whether they were dry laying stone, or wet laying stone steps in cement, digging trenches for electrical, or creating beautiful arched wooden arbors and gates, they attended to every detail with expertise and efficiency — and with smiles on their faces. They were always intent on doing quality work without cutting corners.

"A pleasure to work with"

Curbz designed and installed a beautiful, functional expansion of our outdoor living space, which included a built-in bench and landscaping. They not only completed the work on time and on budget, but they did so in a courteous, meticulous manner. Real professionals that were a pleasure to work with!

"Curbz turned our dream into a reality"

Ian worked closely with us to bring forward some great creative ideas that we actually put into place. Before we made a decision, he explained the reasoning behind his suggestions and identified pros and cons of moving in either of the two directions we were trying to decide between. What we were promised is what we got in the end! We couldn't be happier and we've already referred them to others.
