Let's go back in time for a moment. The year was 1963...
You don’t get to be a trusted name in urban landscape management for close to 55 years without earning your stripes along the way. Our teams put every ounce of expertise gained from our diverse portfolio of projects into the work we do for you.
Strathmore Garden Centre is founded by Elmer Milligan Strathmore Avenue in Dorval.
Danny Milligan, Elmer's son, takes over the company ownership. During this time, Strathmore was involved in all facets of landscaping in Montreal: high-end residential installs, large commercial bid-builds, building parks and municipal spaces.
After observing a void in the commercial maintenance market, Danny repositioned Strathmore to focus exclusively on the specific needs of property managers and real estate investors.
Gordon Milligan and Jessica Milligan, the third generation, join the company. Gordon has just graduated from a landscape diploma program and Jessica is focused on getting the company's systems and processes in order. As a team of three, the Milligans continue developing Strathmore's commitment to excellence. Rapid growth soon follows as the company focuses exclusively on the commercial building market.
Realizing that the company will need key people in place to support this growth, Strathmore makes a conscious choice to build a team that shares core values. Key personnel are recruited from colleges, universities and municipalities. Several committed employees are sent to school to complete their landscape education. This team brings an unparallelled level of professionalism to the landscape maintenance market. Working out of locations in Ville-Saint-Laurent and Griffintown, Strathmore's service radius expands and the company now serves clients an hour away in all directions.
The company moves to a new location in Lasalle, one big enough that all 200 team members can work from.
By treating each property as if it were our own, Strathmore continues to offer clients more and more value in their landscape management. The company goal remains to do excellent work, be strong partners with our clients and create amazing opportunities for our team members.
