About Our Company:

Great results begin with great designs. Our award winning company has been guided by the vision of its owner, Fred Dantuma.

Each client’s needs and lifestyle choices guide the design process of their landscape. For some it must reflect their love of entertaining, or others the need for peace and harmony. For others, a combination is required to include a busy family life with an area set aside for quiet reflection.

Inspired by his love for nature and his appreciation and respect for architecture, our designer uses materials such as wood, stone, iron and statuary to add style and grace to each project. Incorporation of these adds definition, texture and structure to the landscape.

Hess Landscaping Ltd. is able to oversee and facilitate all aspects of the residential or commercial landscape.

Whatever the clients’ needs, Hess Landscaping Ltd. ably co-ordinates all details, including approval from planning departments and meeting municipal codes, to co-ordinating other contractors, such as pool installation, plumbing and electrical contractors that may be contributing to the landscape project.

Each landscape is carefully designed to flourish and evolve as it becomes part of its surroundings.

The care of the completed landscape is of paramount importance. This is accomplished with regularly scheduled application of care.

At Hess Landscaping Ltd., we are also proud of our maintenance service. Our staff is involved in ongoing horticulture programs. The combination of experience with education allows our maintenance team to give each site the excellent attention it requires.
