Our Values

Company History

In 1996, Brent Ayles, native son of Moncton, returned from Horticulture Training and Business College to assist in growing a family run operation. At this time the operation became known as Ayles Natural Landscaping, with all focus on The Natural Approach.

Throughout 1996-1998, Ayles Natural Landscaping provided their customers with general landscape maintenance activities that included lawn maintenance, raking, trimming, gardening, and snow removal which employed 2 full time seasonal employees.

In 1999, Ayles Natural Landscaping was incorporated as Ayles Natural Landscaping Limited. With a strong focus on the environment they began to promote Organic Management Services which in turn promoted the reduction of chemical pesticides within their operation. With a dedication to Quality Service the company began to experience growth.

In 2000, with approximately 6 full time seasonal staff, the company started to provide their customers with landscape renovations and small installation projects. Every year since these projects have expanded into larger projects always with a commitment to quality.

In 2001 the company employed 8 full time horticultural staff in which the Landscape Installation division of the company began to grow, providing their clients with project management from start to finish.

2012-2020 have proven to be build years for internal processes focused on improving the client experience.  From sales to operations to administration we have been evolving our processes to serve you better. 

We’ve completed a 360-degree review of the company’s productivity and taken steps to eliminate inefficiencies within the business so that we can focus on serving you. Our clients have provided invaluable feedback that is shaping the direction of the company, and we are focused on consistently achieving a positive answer to the ultimate question that guides us: would you recommend us to family, a friend, coworker, or neighbour?

We’re focused on our roots: designing, building, and maintaining landscape environments for safe, active play and lifestyles.

Thru 2008-2010, the company was Awarded 2 "Landscape Excellence Awards", both in Residential Landscape Maintenance and Residential Landscape Construction. Thanks to our clients, team, families, and mentors we all share the experience!

2010- An Operations Management Team was added to oversee every aspect of implementing our projects and services: from cost control, job costing, operational efficiency, to teaching and developing landscape professionals. This enabled Ayles to expand existing services and add new services to the marketing mix. This was the paradigm shift to become a company driven by decisions based on facts and critical data. The company experienced growth in excess of 20 percent in sales and a team that consisted of 34 team members.

2011- Was a building year driven by data derived by operational efficiency and knowing our numbers better than any year previous. The company maintained sales levels but also reduced operating costs by 25%- at a total company effort we are working towards a well managed operation that focuses on well made decisions based on financial performance with an ultimate goal of producing a ROI of 15%.

2012- Had proven to be a growth year on inter operations and field performance. Internally, the company began to operate under three key divisions: Sales and Marketing, operations, and Admin/ Accounting. Our field operations maintained field team members of 22 Landscape Professionals and 6 lead Team Members. New to the team this year is our Sales and Marketing Coordinator with the focus of our abilities to 'maintain" client relations and to prospect for new clients.
