How It All Started
In the Words of
From Our RootsThe story of Soil to Sod Landscaping and Irrigation is one of the many journeys we take in life. Like any other college student I needed to get a summer job to make ends meet, but what I was really interested in was getting a good tan! So I got a job at a local landscape/nursery company. The joke was on me since the tan only came in the farmer’s variety! Despite the odd tanlines, I found I loved the work!
Skip ahead 5 years and I found myself gainfully employed by the City of Kelowna in the Parks Department. As I climbed my way through the ranks, I ended up doing every job there was, from making hanging baskets, to maintaining sports fields, to taking control of the irrigation in whole sections of the City. In the end I wound up as one of the city’ Groundskeepers, taking care of all the parks in the Mission area of town. With this position came the chance to head up projects that the Parks Department undertook.
A New Venture BlossomsOne such project was the Guinness Book record for tree planting. I was given the job of organizing and scheduling 3 schools, approximately 300 students, plus a dozen volunteers. To my surprise, not only was it enjoyable, but I found out I had a knack for project management. The planting went off as planned and everyone had a great time. Afterwards, the principals came to me to thank me for the organization and planning, noting that everything ran smoothly.
So, there I sat, enjoying and excelling at project management, having finished Horticultural School, and loving working in the landscape field. What could I do next? Hence the founding of Soil to Sod Landscaping and Irrigation.
