Our story

Plantscape provides landscaping services to major commercial and residential properties in the Windsor/Essex County market and surrounding areas. Our core values stress customer service, professionalism and attention to detail. As a result, Plantscape has grown to become one of Windsor/Essex County’s most experienced and respected landscape companies.

Our History is a Family History

Plantscape (Windsor) Inc. was established by Victor P. Desmarais in 1976 as an indoor tropical plant service provider. The term “plantscaping” is the strategic placement and selection of tropical plants to highlight and enhance aspects of spatial design. From 1976 – 1984 Victor grew Plantscape one account at a time, and by the early 1980’s Plantscape serviced over 400 local offices, restaurants, shopping centres and institutions and employed 10 staff.

As the decades passed, the company expanded into the Outdoor Maintenance Space, Landscape Design/Build and finally added Snow & Ice Management Services in 2010.

In 2016, Victor’s first-born daughter, Liana Desmarais assumed the operations of the business as Victor took that year to transition into retirement. With a degree in Business Administration from the University of Windsor, and 12 years’ experience in management, financial planning and business planning, Liana brought with her a new perspective, energy and process. Adding to an already phenomenal team, her hands-on approach and pride in the Plantscape brand brings a new level of customer service to the landscape industry in Windsor/Essex County.
