Turf Pro LTD

Company History

The Sole Proprietorship of Turf Pro was founded in 1988. Originally, it was a business operated in the summer months, as a means to pay for the completion of University by the founder, Dave Colborne. Operations were expanded to full-time, after graduation from Brock University in 1992. Initially, comprehensive landscape maintenance was the only service provided. In 1995, the business was incorporated to form Turf Pro Professional Landscape Maintenance Ltd. During the mid-1990’s modest design/build construction projects were added, with full landscape lighting services commencing in 1997. In 2004, irrigation installation and maintenance became a part of the services portfolio. With the purchase of additional equipment in 2010, the Company can now perform large tree pruning and removals.


The Company now operates three trucks, with dedicated crews working on comprehensive landscape maintenance; landscape construction; and design/build landscape lighting services.

Landscape Maintenance SERVICES

When the business was originally founded in 1989, comprehensive landscape maintenance was the sole service offering. This division has consistently expanded on a referral basis, one property at a time. Residential properties constitute the majority of the maintenance work, with select restaurants and a large condominium rounding out the portfolio. Please enjoy viewing the Company’s maintenance services performed on these fine properties.

These services were first offered in 1997. This section has seen the most rapid growth in recent years. The Company’s ongoing commitment to offering high quality services is most exemplified by our comprehensive, artistic lighting compositions.

Intensive Design and Field Training Course

The Intensive Course (IC) is the most exhaustive and comprehensive training regarding landscape lighting. Landscape lighting is one of the most challenging aspects of lighting design: you’re working in an open space, in a constantly growing environment submitted to the elements and affected by seasonal change. However, overcoming all these challenges makes it even more rewarding for the designer, and the IC provides the tools to understand how to successfully overcome these obstacles and create a safe, enjoyable night environment.

This 5-day, 5-evening class is lead by internationally acclaimed lighting designer Janet Lennox Moyer who directs a team of more than eighteen instructors. The student - instructor ratio is almost one to one. A series of lectures, demonstrations, presentations and a lot of hands-on field work using all major manufacturers’ equipment will allow you to create a great visual composition.

Once you’ve completed the class, you’ll be able to create beautiful landscape lighting compositions, correctly install the equipment required to create your design, have the understanding and tools to document the system to ensure its longevity, and know the steps to properly maintain the equipment over time.

Course Project

The culmination of your learning experience in the Intensive Course is a landscape lighting project designed and realized by you and your fellow attendees. In teams of six, you design, specify, install and aim a full-scale mock-up project in an area of illi Park. On your final night at illi, your team presents your work to your "clients" during a celebratory evening attended by guests and the general public. Here are a few photos of our group project work performed in October 2014.
