6 BUILD Q2 2022 Feb22461 Most Innovative Landscape Design/Build Firm - Durham Region & Client Service Excellence Award 2022 Established over six decades ago as a family-owned and operated business, Lloyd’s Landscape Contracting has been regarded as the Most Innovative Landscape Design/Build Firm and has been honoured with the Client Service Excellence Award of 2022. After many years of hard work and dedication in the industry, Lloyd’s changed from a full-service business to two separate companies in 2018. loyd’s Landscape Contracting is renowned for being a full-service design and build company and has been highly regarded within the industry since 1963. Handing projects from backyard patios to an entirely blissful and natural oasis, Lloyd’s serves the Durham Region and additional surrounding areas. The company surpasses industrystandard qualities and brings well-crafted experiences to their clients – carving memories that families and friends can enjoy for years on end. The original Lloyd’s Landscaping Ltd. business had decided to split into two separate entities in 2017. Lloyd’s Landscape Contracting could then focus on specialised services for each part of the business, essentially serving its clients with better care, quality and results. So, for example, as Lloyd’s (Landscape Contracting) concentrates on full design and build services, its sister business, Lloyd’s Ground Management Professionals, can focus on full-service ground maintenance. Lloyd’s proudly serves the general public in residential landscape construction with a decent amount of work being created by referrals of past customers and the travelling reputation of its quality and outstanding craft. Because of this, Lloyd’s has been able to differentiate itself from other potential competitors, providing several services that it can design and then build – a hassle-free project that Lloyd’s alone can handle without involving additional tradespeople. Lloyd’s is a full comprehensive landscape contractor that has gained rapid success in the industry heavily in part to the outstanding work of its employees. Landscape Manager Scott Lloyd expands on this, stating, “Our employees are essential in the product quality to every build. They know that making sure our clients are happy with the project at the end is the main goal. We are a close-knit group and spend most days together, so you could say we are like a family serving other families.” Like many businesses, Lloyd’s has encountered several challenges due to the effects of Covid-19, from product shortages to delays. Most significantly, the company has had to deal with discontinued products, otherwise utilised until they decreased in popularity and were since cut from production. Additionally, Lloyd’s has noticed a positive effect, with people looking to modernise their home and outdoor spaces. Scott L comments on this, stating, “The pandemic has been good and bad. Good in a way you can count on a lot of potential work coming in but bad in the fact you feel like your letting people down by not being able to help them.” However, looking to the future, Lloyd’s is planning a big change. As there is currently a rise in pool installations, the pandemic has given the company a significant opportunity to gain access to larger projects and, therefore, create additional intricate designs. From 1963 and beyond, Lloyd’s Landscape Contracting has been a family-owned and operated business, expanding, adapting and innovating through generations of hard work - impressively affecting clients in the Durham Region and its surrounding areas.
