Our Beginning

My landscape career began many years ago by accident.  Like most young men my career path was strongly influenced by my hard working father.  He raised me in the residential construction industry and being the oldest of a large family I was always the first to be brought along on site as an extra pair of hands and more likely someone to talk to. Over the years I watched how my father took care of his customers always doing more than what was expected and how his quality of work was always second to none.

Years later when it was time for me to decide what industry I would work in I enrolled in Mohawk College in the Electrical Engineering course.  Everything was going as planned until one summer I found a job at a local garden center, and under the wing of a German Horticulturist my love for landscaping began.  I spent the summer side by side with this man taking in every bit of information he would give to me.  At the end of the season I returned to do my final year of schooling.  Upon completion of the course I found myself unsure that a factory was where I wanted to be and I ended up back at a landscape company in the maintenance department.  With one year of maintenance under my belt I begged my boss to be moved to construction where I belonged.  Even though I had zero landscape experience I found that my past construction knowledge made it very easy for me to grasp my new position.  After years in this position I became a very well rounded landscape installer. Eventually it was time for me to move on and this is when I started Zen Construction.

I vowed that I would build a company around professionalism, trust and most importantly honesty. I want my customers to feel comfortable when they deal with us as if they were a family member. I push these values on my staff so that each customer no matter how large or small their job is has a great experience.
