Chris and Karin Griffin
Family run and locally owned, Alternative Landscaping is celebrating their 20th anniversary in the Westman community. A household name in the landscaping and gardening industry, Chris and Karin Griffin’s philosophy is simple, provide superior workmanship by people who care.
Since 1998, Alternative Landscaping has designed and installed numerous award-winning residential and commercial projects in Brandon and the Westman area. In 2007, their services expanded to Clear Lake and all surrounding communities within three hours of Brandon. Along with their growth, so did their menu of product and services.
In 2008, a complete line of retail landscape products was introduced, designed to provide contractors and DIY clients hardscape and softscape products in bulk. This business model of bringing supplies and expertise under one roof is a key factor that allowed them to expand in 2013 to a brand new facility. Alternative Excavation and Alternative Choice Garden Centre were launched to accommodate the growing needs of Alternative clients and offer Westman customers additional green industry services.
A second seasonal location on Brandon’s North Hill was opened in 2016. This location allowed for additional growing space while increasing their retail presence. The most recent addition of services to the company was in 2017 when Heartland Fence, Deck & Rail was acquired, further expanding the company’s services.
Today, Alternative Landscaping continues to flourish, with a second generation of the Griffin family now working in the business.
