Werks Landscape Construction was started in 1980 and has evolved into a full
time family owned design/build company with many years experience in
architectural design and installation of all landscape
products. The company is headed up by myself, Scott
Miller. I am not only the owner I wear all the "hats" in the company so
when you talk to me you are talking to the guy who does
the design, the estimate and the installation. New
constructs receive a written guarantee on all workmanship. We do not
retail, we are a contract
construction business purchasing direct from the
manufacturer to ship to your site thereby keeping our
overhead and your cost minimized! We serve both the residential and
commercial landscape markets. We provide an on-site visitation and
from that develop an architectural design, then supply and install interlock or flagstone for
patios, walkways, driveways, steps and landings. We design and
build retaining walls, wood decks, gazebos, and fences. We excavate planting beds and fill with a soil mixture ready for planting.

Why do you call yourself University Werks Landscape Construction?
A: When University Werks Landscape Construction was started in 1980, I
was attending the University of Waterloo studying engineering. At the time another student
(college) oriented business was doing well hiring
themselves out as "student labourers".
Therefore I figured that the company name should convey
the fact that students were being employed (university
not college). Hence the term "UNIVERSITY".
"WERKS" part of the name was originally to be
"brickwerks" but as I wanted to do other than
interlock alone the brick part was dropped and shortened
to "WERKS". The "E" in
"WERKS" is there for two reasons.
First: it is German for the word work and Germany is
where all this precast concrete paver concept originated
in response to the need for a practical and economical
replacement of the deteriorating natural cobblestone
which paves a great many of the streets there.
Second: the odd spelling "WERKS" following the
term "UNIVERSITY' is an eye-catcher isn't it?
I am a graduate of the University Of Western Ontario.
What sort of client do you serve?
A: We serve both the residential and
commercial client, from small to large, designing and
building your exterior or interior landscape projects.
Do you do any property maintenance?
A: Quite simply, no.
Our business covers architectural design and
construction/installation of landscape projects using
construction techniques, equipment, products and
materials all of which is generally termed hardscape.
Property maintenance (lawn mowing, gardening etc) is at
the other end of the landscaping spectrum and is
generally termed softscape.
How much does it cost for an estimate?
A: Estimates are free of charge and
require a site visit . If you require
