What Makes a Great Design

Born, raised, and experienced in the Southern Ontario climate, Ivan Chan knows the local area and continues to track the weather patterns and the performance of his diverse projects. He knows which trees suffered the most in the 2012 blossom freeze, what the effects of the 2018 summer drought was, what works, where, and why. By knowing and reading our local landscape, we better understand how subtle observations such as microclimate, indicator plants, your lifestyle, and municipal regulations help inform us on how to best utilize your landscape.
