About University Werks
| Main Menu | FAQ's |

University 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.

To view our work please visit our photo album which is complete with the project address should you wish to inspect our work or talk to our customers.

We are located in Whitby, Ontario, Canada. Tel: (905) 666-9690

I look forward to hearing from you , please forward any comments or requests using the email below.

Thank You,

Scott Miller

FAQ's

Q: 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".

The "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.

Q: 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.

Q: 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.

Q: How much does it cost for an estimate?
