At the young age of 10, our owner/ceo, Grant Fairley started pushing a lawn mower around his local neighborhood community in Coquitlam B.C. for extra money; Now, more than 40 years later, he has developed his experience into one of the ontarios finest landscape design/build firms. With his educational background in (Engineering thing to work ) and strong ties to sports (83 Team Captain –Coquitlam Adanacs lacrosse (BCJALL) –and grant has moved to developed such a “Unique” company.
From a young age, grant has developed his customer service skills, attention to detail, and desire to challenge himself on every difficult project.
In his over 20 years as a resident, in kitchener he has developed into a company and quickly become one of the only companies in kitchener ont to work on all aspects of outdoor construction, from hardscape, grass cutting to patios, tropical designsand lots more !
The ontario landscape division was the first introduced to the city in kitchener. with a vision to become the best in his field, a strong desire to support his family, and his own two hands. It wasn’t uncommon to see him at jobsites working alongside his crews, building a rock waterfall, or setting up a kitchener homeshow display. It’s this experience that has taught him the “right” way to build each project – and also allowed him to gain the leadership skills to help his staff develop into experts in their individual fields (masonry, irrigation, lighting, etc…)
So much has gone into developing this small company into what it is today. It wasn’t uncommon for Grant to take industry standard items, and put his engineering background to work and make it better! Check out just some of the things that “separate” us from other companies. Not all companies are equal,
Grant is still extremely active on a daily basis with kw lawn inc. He finds himself looking over the entire sales & design division – where he can monitor all new landscape and hardscape designs, making sure they are “buildable” and “properly designed to last”. Although he has a fulltime office staff, he’s very active in office tasks, accounting decisions, and even warranty assignments. In fact, it’s a good bet that you can find a full toolbox & equipment in the back of his truck for quick and easy jobsite repairs! Now that’s service!
Finally, Mr. fairley heads & oversees the construction & installation crews – and he’s personally trained most of them! “I’m proud to say that I don’t think that I can ask someone in my company to do something that I haven’t done or experienced myself – I’ve done just about everything with my two hands, from lay block, finish concrete, file accounting papers and manage email accounts. It’s nice to know exactly what each one of my team members is dealing with on a daily basis, as it helps me to understand and manage better.” Claims grant, President of KW lawn inc. LLC.
