About Us

In 1996, Monarch Landscape was established as a small landscape maintenance company. In the years since, we have transformed into one of the premier landscape companies in the Waterloo Region. Our staff of architects, designers, project managers and field staff (including masons, carpenters and horticultural specialists) have continued to push the boundaries of landscape design and construction.

As the natural progression continues over nearly twenty-five years in business, continually refining our design methods and construction techniques, we have re-branded the company as Monarch Fine Landscapes & Interiors - now offering our clients a suite of interior design, decorating and renovation services. In addition, we are excited to open our Waterloo design studio, furnished with both interior and exterior furniture and accessories, creating the perfect setting to begin prospective designs with our clients. Each project begins with a client's dream of a perfect place - a space for gathering and quiet conversation or dining with friends, an area where children can play, or simply a place for solitude. Monarch’s job is to take that dream and make it a reality!

Casey van Maris Award Video

At the 2016 Landscape Ontario Awards of Excellence ceremony in Toronto, Monarch was awarded the prestigious Casey van Maris Award.

Voted on by a group of peers, our project was selected amongst all entries submitted to Landscape Ontario as the project deemed to be the most innovative and unique in design. This award speaks to the strength of our design team and our field craftsman in creating truly unique and exciting projects.

From the very beginning I was impressed...

I had the pleasure of working with Monarch on a complete backyard project that included the full design, cedar deck, large patio, step stones gardens and trees. From the very beginning I was impressed with Dave and the whole Monarch team. The crew was extremely detailed, paying close attention to all the build details, and were very professional. The job site was well organized and cleaned daily. The project was completed ahead of schedule, and we were able to enjoy a full summer season out in the new space. We look forward to working with Monarch on future projects. I would recommend them to anyone interested in a proper design for their outdoor living space.

Very happy with the finished product...

Monarch transformed what used to be our very poorly graded back yard into a tiered and functional space. We have gardens, a patio and a play area that are all very well used by our whole family. Their attention to detail and materials used make our yard the talk of the neighbourhood. They also built privacy screens and added a shed that provide privacy from our neighbours without looking like a standard fence. The whole concept in the backyard really ties in well architecturally and we are very happy with the finished product. The crew was very pleasant as was the office team.

Client Testimonial

I have had the pleasure of working with Dave Van Dam and the team at Monarch in renovating two backyards (2011 & 2015). As a homeowner who has well-defined design preferences and aesthetic needs, Dave worked hard and succeeded in translating my requirements into his designs. I think his creativity and vision for both projects have been nothing less than exceptional.

As I sit here in my living room looking at my backyard, I'm reminded again of why we chose to go with Monarch. Our backyard space is simply stunning and my family and I are looking forward to our many stay-cations here in the years to come.

The team at Monarch are great! Everyone, including the pool, electrical and painting subcontractors, were as nice as can be, as well as very professional. They indulged questions from 2 curious young boys (as well as mine) throughout the project. Thank you so much for making our dream backyard a reality, once again!
