Sometimes he would even put ladders on his roof of his small car, or put the lawn mower in the trunk as needed. He was fortunate enough to get a lawn mower and edger given to him by his first boss, Bruce. He was also trained how to put in lawns to a very high level by a local landscape legend Stanley. In the first year after university when he founded Great Lawns, he had only a couple employees and one truck. Fast forward until today and Great Lawns & Beyond ltd, is one of the premier landscaping companies in North Vancouver, with 35 full time staff, two warehouses, 19 trucks, and provide full service to their customers year-round.
