Shantz Landscapes provides Landscape and mini excavation services in a 1 hr radius of our Alma based business. (Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph, Listowel etc.)Our commitment to quality and passion for landscape is why we succeed. We design and build landscapes that stand the test of time. Whether large or small we take pride in giving our customers a unique landscape that matches to their living styles. Landscape adds value to your home and can turn your own back yard into a great outdoor living space. We offer a large line of equipment because every job is uniquely different. We have the equipment and experience to tackle many jobs including but not limited to retaining walls, interlocking patios/sidewalks and lawn seeding. A beautiful landscape goes deeper then only ground level. That is why when we build a hardscape we start it right with a solid gravel base and good water drainage because we want our work to last. Our specialty is Excavation through to hardscape and lawn completion and we can network with other contractors for softscapes and bed planting.


Our History

In 1998 Murray & Marilyn Shantz started Shantz Lawn & Garden Care. Murray’s sons Dan and Mike helped during their summer breaks as they became old enough. Dan went to work as a heavy equipment operator for several years before returning as a full time employee in 2008. In 2015 Dan and Gloria joined the partnership and they rebranded the business Shantz Landscapes. Mike became a full time employee when he graduated grade 12 in 2013. As a family owned and operated business it is our goal to use the values and morals of our heritage to build landscapes and relationships that will stand the test of time.
