About Us

The Company, The People and Our Promise to You


As a young entrepreneur from Westland in the Western part of the Netherlands, Jan VandenEngel began his career as an enthusiastic horticulturist in the green houses.

Immigrating to Canada in the 1950’s, Jan began a part time career in the landscaping business which later led on to what is now known as Western Landscape Services (founded by Jan and Trudy VandenEngel in 1973).

With more than just a handful of customers, Jan and Trudy saw the need to expand their operations; so they relocated to Elginburg, Ontario a prime location promising something greater. By 1990, the partnership led to a limited company, VandenEngel & Son Limited operating as Western Landscape Services.

Today, Western Landscape Services operates with a qualified crew to carry out design/build landscape construction projects backed by a strong arboriculture and maintenance department. We take pride in our quality of work, and have a strong commitment to health and safety policy as well as to customer satisfaction.

We, at Western Landscape Services, are proud to be a family oriented business with a history of growth and success.
