The Landscape You’ve Always Wanted
We love spending our days in the outdoors under the sun (it’s on cloudy or even rainy days, but nothing can compete with a clear, bright day). We want you to love the outdoors as much as we do, and a beautiful landscape right outside your door can change your life.
Who is Wright?
In 1967, John and Ruth Wright founded Wright Landscape Services, and 50 years later we remain a family owned and family oriented landscape services team.
Current president (and son of John and Ruth) David Wright grew up around the family business. He started out in the grounds maintenance division for several years. Eventually, David earned his Bachelor of Landscape Architecture from the University of Guelph and spent the next several years traveling and sharing his talents on large corporate residential and municipal projects across Southern Ontario, Western Canada, the United States and Asia.
