Our Philosophy and Mission

Earth Sculptors Inc. is a landscape design and construction company, established in 2008 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Our mission is to design high quality gardens and landscapes that serve as harmonious enhancements to our clients’ homes, neighbourhoods, and lifestyles. We welcome input from our clients, and blend their ideas with our own, creating a unique fusion of Japanese and Western concepts that will surpass all expectations.


We offer a complete package of care and support services for gardens and landscapes throughout the Greater Vancouver area. We design integrated, original design creations with long-term growth in mind, providing consistent and careful maintenance that ensures ongoing balance as trees and shrubs grow and change. Our goal is to provide our clients with peace of mind, as well as beautiful, relaxing spaces that families can enjoy now, and into the future.
