It’s hard to believe that Earthlings celebrates 10 years serving Lethbridge this year! Time really does fly. We’ve enjoyed the opportunity to design and build landscapes in this wonderful community.

While contemplating this anniversary, I began thinking about what has changed over the years.


At first, my mind looks at how we’ve grown as a company.

Of course, like any growing business, we’ve seen an improvement in our everyday organization. We’re also strong believers in continuing education. We’ve improved our knowledge and qualifications to keep our practices current in both design and construction.


The most exciting shift I’ve seen over these 10 years has been our clients’ desire to incorporate water conservation into their landscape projects.  In the beginning, we included xeriscaping principles into about one third of our projects. Today, we implement xeriscaping principles into almost every project. Our clients understand that conserving water doesn’t mean they have to sacrifice style.


The most enjoyable part of our work is the relationship that we build with our clients as we strive to meet their expectations and desires throughout the design and construction process.


We look forward to creating more landscapes in the years to come. Thanks, Lethbridge!
