Designing all the finest landscapes

The Ghent Group is one of a select few design build firms in Ontario with Landscape Architecture accreditation. Our well-educated, knowledgeable design staff will help you discover the best your property has to offer.

It has been said that the only real opportunity for saving money in a construction project is during the planning & design phase. Investing in a professional landscape design allows the opportunity to: explore concept options; establish a master plan for phased construction; keeps the project on time and budget; and allows accurate quoting for construction costs. We utilize artistic graphics and detailed CAD drafting to communicate our vision, ensuring everyone is on the same page before the shovels hit the ground.

Plus - all of our design work is completed exclusively in-house by our experienced design team. This means only one point of contact for you throughout the entire process, and guarantees the initial vision for your property is carried through successfully to completion.

We adjust our design services to match your specific requirements, striving to offer exceptional design solutions to any size project.
