PILLARS THAT DRIVE OUR COMPANY
VALUE ADDED MODEL
YOU ARE ONLY AS STRONG AS YOUR WEAKEST LINK.
Owner | Division Manager
A proud University of Guelph grad, and professional landscape architect, whose design expertise and project management skills are crucial to the landscape team. Doug is the first point of contact for new clients looking to transform their outdoor spaces. His financial savvy, paired with his ‘farm boy’ work ethic has been integral to Frontiers’ rapid and continued success.
When Doug isn’t working, he enjoys a fine glass of scotch, smacking dingers out of the park with his softball team, and sending the cutest candid photos of his toddler Alina to everyone on his contact list.

Owner | Project Manager
With a degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Guelph, Adam has the design background to pair with his extensive construction experience. Growing up on a farm has given Adam the work ethic and grit to tackle many of the dirty jobs that come along with our industry. He is our fleet/equipment manager, and is also our problem solver. If someone has an issue, it’s Adam that usually gets the call. In his down time, Adam enjoys watching Gordon Ramsay on YouTube and replicating his dishes, and also has a mild addiction to trivia.
Jer has almost 15 years of experience in high end landscape design/build. His exceptional creativity and attention to detail has positioned him as one of our most talented installers. Jer also has serious design talent, and does concept work for some of our residential clients. His personal likes include beach volleyball, rock climbing and a nice scotch. His personal dislikes include potato eyes and sharks.
Mr. Dependable has missed very few days in the many years he has been part of Frontiers. Jesse has both a Marketing degree from Sheridan, and a Building Renovation Technology degree from Mohawk. Frontiers recruited Jesse right out of school, and he has developed quickly into one of our lead foreman. Jesse enjoys motorcycles, hiking with his dogs, camping and the outdoors. He also suffers from ‘nice guy syndrome’ – we are constantly asking him to stop being so easy going. It makes the rest of us look bad.
‘Patterson’ holds a degree in Economics from Brock University. He eventually pursued a career in Carpentry, and found his way to Frontiers. Patt excels at finished carpentry, and often tackles detailed/precision work on our home remodelling projects. He is driven, and is always looking to tackle the next challenge. When Patt is not camping or spending time with his cat peanut, he enjoys watching a good baseball game. He has also been known to wear white jeans to work, which speaks to his high level of confidence…not everyone can pull that off.
‘Mac’ is a work horse, with a ‘head down’ type work ethic. You can’t stop this guy from a hard days work! Mac loves all things hardscape and equipment. Doing things right the first time is a point of pride for him – having to do it twice really grinds his gears. If you ask his friends, Mac’s downtime is hanging out with his dog while fishing up north – but if you ask Mac what he does between the end of one day and the start of the next, he’ll simply answer “I wait…”.
Graduate of the Mohawk College, Building Renovation program, Graeme began his career in framing, before coming to Frontiers. Graeme has a love for tools, snowboarding, golf, and his new truck! Graeme is known to be consistent not only for his dedication to quality and work ethic, but also for having a Jos Louis in his lunch every day.
‘Lou’ has an educational background in both marketing and business. He has been with us for a number of years, and is a critical member of our landscape install team. Lou has always been the coolest guy on the crew, and then he told us he was in training to becoming a commercial helicopter pilot, which really put the competition out of reach. He is also the co-founder of a local clothing brand, “Weekends and Company” – what’s next Lou?
Liam is a graduate of Conestoga College from the Renovation Technician Program and is one of four carpenters on the interiors crew. As the newest member to the team, Liam enjoys developing a wide range of new skills. On his down time, he can be found spending time with his new pup snoop, playing some pick up hockey, or showing the other frontiers guys how it’s done on the golf course.
James graduated from the University of Guelph with an undergraduate degree in Sociology, all while being a part of the Varsity Football Team. Initially his early time at Frontiers was spent performing tasks as a labourer for the Landscape division, but his skills have shifted focus. He now manages the day-to-day operations of the company as efficiently and consistently as possible. Priding himself on organization, transparency and hard work, James has found a great fit in the team and is ecstatic to aid the continuing growth of the company.
