ABOUT THREE SEASONS LANDSCAPING
Growing the Business
Business was good and the daily drive was pretty light! Almost a decade later, Three Seasons had filled the location and was bursting at the seams. With 3 small kids running around, Darren realized the company needed a new home. Then wouldn’t you know it, just down the road came the perfect spot: 17 acres with a brand new 4000 sq/ft shop, plenty of space for Three Seasons. So in the winter of 2014 Three Seasons moved every machine, shed, storage bin, printer, and even some rocks to its new home.
The Property was an Absolute Disaster
Three Seasons is continuously growing and expanding its services!
In the Summer of 2017 Three Seasons Landscaping purchased the established J & N Tree Farms, just 1km North of them. With over 3000 mature trees on 40 acres it’s a beautiful setting that is a sight to behold!
It started with one person’s dreams and has captured the dreams of others.
We recognize that the success of the company is not possible without the employees of both past and present, as well as their friends and families who tolerate our unpredictable and often long hours. Landscaping is truly a labour of love, it is rarely easy, and so we thank our employees, families, friends, and community for making this all happen. Scroll further and meet the team!
Meet the Team
Darren - Owner; Horticulturalist, CLT
Darren is the owner and operator of Three Seasons Landscaping.
He started the company in 1999 while attending Old’s College to get his diploma in Horticulture. As the company has grown, Darren has gone from a foreman out in the field everyday to focusing on customer service and business management (although he still likes to get out in the dirt whenever he can).
When not at work Darren spends time with his wife and three small daughters, whose collective love of glitter frequently appears on Darren’s face. Darren is passionate about the industry and its integrity, volunteering much of his time in the off-season to coordinating the certification exams for Landscape Alberta.
JJ - General Manager; CLT
JJ came to Three Seasons Landscaping in 2008 with 3 years of previous landscaping and skid-steer operation experience. He achieved both softscape and hardscape installation certificates early on in here.
It’s tough to give JJ a specific title as he helps out everywhere and has responsibilities all over: machine operator, shop & landscape foreman, truck driver, mechanic, graphic designer as well as the tree spade truck operator!
His co-workers refer to him as a “wizard in the machine” because of his precision speed and skill in all the skid-steers and equipment. He likes to make his job as fun as possible, having helped give personalized names to each one of our machines.
Jason - Project Manager; CLT
Jason grew up in the badlands of Alberta and is absolutely obsessed with fishing. He comes from a construction and carpentry background, which has come in very handy for both our clients and our company. He started here as a Landscape Foreman and is now the Crew Manager for all divisions.
Jason spent many years working in sales, but grew tired of the sales lifestyle; he decided to make a change and discovered his passion for landscaping. Jason has always loved spending time outside with his family and now enjoys spending time outside with his Three Seasons family too.
Jenn – Office Manager
Jennifer is the superhero of the Three Seasons Landscaping office; as a mother, wife, dog owner, and Microsoft office champion – she manages to juggle all of that while keeping our clients happy and our office organized. Jennifer graduated from the UofA with a land reclamation degree in 2013 and has worked for Three Seasons Landscaping since 2016!
Her passion for nature and agriculture started at a young age on family camping trips, which she now gets to experience with her own family. According to her friends, one of Jennifer’s best qualities is her love of baking, but that might just be because they get goodie baskets each Christmas.
Lee - Landscape Foreman and Safety Officer
Lee’s passion for working outdoors brought her to Three Seasons Landscaping in 2017. She started working on the Enhancement crew and soon moved into landscape installation, growing to become a foreman and creating beautiful yards. She also looks after all our workers as the company’s Health and Safety expert.
When she’s not at work, Lee can be found outdoors on her acreage, gardening so she can enjoy fresh home grown vegetables. Lee and her husband have two dogs and a cat, and raise an assortment of animals including chickens, turkeys, pigs, and sheep.
Sheleen – Commercial Maintenance Lead Hand
Sheleen started at Three Seasons Landscaping in 2016 as a labourer on a commercial maintenance crew and has since been promoted to lead hand of her own crew. She also has been a constant year round employee since, working on a residential snow removal crew.
She loves being outside surrounded by greenery and good people and has no shortage of laughter to share. There’s no time to slow down, when Sheleen isn’t at work she’s kept on her toes by her four young children. Her passions are photography, scrapbooking and honing her pool table skills.
Graham – Maintenance Manager
Graham arrived in Alberta and Three Seasons Landscaping in 2019 with 10 years’ previous experience in the horticultural industry along with a wealth of knowledge from other careers. He started out here as a truck driver/skidsteer operator, facilitating each crews deliveries and helping as an extra hand wherever needed. He has seemingly endless positive energy and always livens up the crews work day from sunup to sundown. He quickly fell in love with are positive family atmosphere, the area and is intent on putting down roots in Ardrossan. His background in lawn mowing and maintenance is invaluable as he manages our growing maintenance division.
His passions are varied but says if he had to narrow it down, it would be food and aviation. He never misses an opportunity to find the latest and greatest restaurants & treats the Edmonton area has to offer.
Makaela - Tree Farm Foreman
Makaela is quiet but can also command a room. Makaela started in 2016 and like many of our employees,has dabbled in a few of our departments but found her niche in our tree farm! This wizard is responsible for maintaining both our properties and training our younger Three Seasons Landscaping family. When she is not at work you can find her curled up in a comfy chair with her cat, Charlie, and a book or at Comic Con.
Tiffany - Beautification & Enhancement Foreman
Tiffany is an East Coast transplant from PEI. She started as a labourer in our Enhancement crew in 2020 and has since become the lead hand of that crew and a snow crew in the winter. Every site that Tiffany touches is left looking more beautiful than when she arrived.
Tiffany is a dog and cat owner and dedicated mom to 4 young men. In her downtime she can be found on one of the numerous sports fields, at the at the lake camping or fishing, perfecting nail designs or creating projects with her Cricut.
Taya- Residential Maintenance Lead Hand
Taya is the Three Seasons Landscaping little Tasmanian devil. She may be small but don’t under estimate her. Taya started working here in 2017 and has worked her way up from maintaining our two properties to being a lead hand for our residential maintenance crews. If she is not at work you may find her at the gym lifting more weight than most men in our company or at the salon getting her nails or hair done!
It’s hard work, but that only makes it more rewarding.
