ABOUT US


MAINTENANCE AT ITS BEST


Leitch Landscapes, established in 1983 by Graeme Leitch, has developed expertise and gained experience in a broad spectrum of projects and has grown into a fully-fledged landscaping enterprise capable of handling all projects in its stated fields of expertise.

Landscape contracting, being a service-orientated business, is "people" intensive and it is the company's strength in this field that has laid the cornerstone of Leitch Landscape's success.

Leitch Landscapes has the horticultural knowledge, technical ability and financial stability to meet any criteria but also surpass expectations.

Since inception, Leitch Landscapes has built many strategic partnerships. We are proud to be associated with, amongst others.
