About Andre G. Ypma, LDT

Owner Andre G. Ypma first experienced the landscape trade in 1988 as a summer labourer for both landscape maintenance and construction companies as well as a plant nursery in the Quinte area.  Discovering how much he enjoyed working in the trade, Andre moved to Toronto in 1994 to study landscape technology and design at Humber College of Applied Arts and Technology. While still a student, he worked for a property maintenance and construction company in Scarborough, and was responsible for the design of several new construction and renovation projects for high end condominium properties as well as several residential projects in Toronto, North York and Pickering.

After graduating, Andre continued to work in the Toronto area until 2002, when he returned to Prince Edward County to build his own business and pursue his passion.

Andre is currently a member of the Landscape Ontario Upper Canada Chapter board of directors and continues to educate both himself and his team in the landscape and horticultural trades industry so they continue to provide competent and professional service to their clients.

I did not believe that this kind of superior professionalism and attention to detail existed in this day and age, and the value for my money was exceptional. I would recommend Andre's "Modern Earthscapes" unreservedly to anyone who should ask.
