Twenty five years ago Ryan Markewich
had a vision, a truck and some garden tools…

Since then he has bought new tools and trucks, and shared company ownership with Matt and Colette, but the vision is still the same; to build a team of truly outstanding people that will deliver amazing results every time. A team of professionals who could set the standard in any industry – we just happen to love landscaping. The outdoors, the hard work and the tangible results of our efforts are things we don’t want to live without. We are proud of what we do and enjoy handing over each project to our clients and witnessing how they share our pride in the outcome.

The reputation we’ve built and the referrals we get have propelled the Creative Roots team to be one of British Columbia’s leading landscape companies. We are guided by our insight and principles:

Insight and skills

Crafting a landscape is not an exercise in one single skill, but rather, a matter of understanding the entire process and ultimately placing all of the skills together that will bring a project to life. At Creative Roots, we have a dynamic team with trade diversities that lay the foundation to create, execute and complete the most challenging projects.

Principles - Part of our toolbox

While the size and scope of our ventures has expanded over the years, we have never lost sight of our principles:

  1. Have Fun. This one is extremely important to us.  We do our best to cultivate a culture where every person is committed to doing their absolute best while still having fun.

  2. Continual innovation. We want to do more than live up to the positive reputation we have earned within our industry. We believe that by working on ourselves and our ways of delivering service, not only will our clients have a GREAT experience, we will also. Our goal is to surpass our best achievements each and every day through education and good business practices.

  3. Flawless execution. From water features, custom wood and metal work to automated irrigation, lighting and natural stone walls, we put our professional pride into every detail, because the quality of our work and manner we deliver it in is the trademark we leave behind.

  4. Attention to detail. Every member of the Creative Roots team is on board with our professional commitment to our clients. We take care of the details because that's what we do and our clients want us to.
