CLIENT CARE & MARKETING

Mark is new to our team but old to landscaping. He comes to us with a background in Marketing and a passion to make your property stand out. When he’s not in the office (and sometimes while he is) he is dreaming and planning his next vacation or found playing any team sport.

Jonathan Hagen

Jonathan loves working at Dicam. During the warmer months he leads a construction crew at the majority of our large residential and commercial jobs.  Jonathan spends his spare time with his wife and family. Jon’s favourite season is summer and he loves the outdoors. He always comes to work with a smile and embodies our values of “Smile. Serve. Speak.”

Andrew Charuk

CONSTRUCTION CREW LEADER

Andrew is our jack of all trades and current postmaster (fence posts). His best part of working at Dicam is the rewarding feeling of putting the beautiful, finishing touches on patios. When he isn’t working hard at Dicam, he can be found working hard on the court. Andrews passions include basketball and he is the winner of several dunk competitions, although he’s too humble to brag about himself.

Dennis Botelho

COMMERCIAL CREW LEADER

Dennis manages a maintenance crew all Summer, but once the grass slows down he can be found around the shop fixing small engines and doing all kinds of odd jobs. He loves the Winter and being out in a salt truck or plowing. Dennis is our longest employees with over 20 years at Dicam. One of Dennis’ passions outside of work is his fish and beautiful aquarium.

Peter de Schiffart

SHOP TECHNICIAN

Pete handles our shop and yard making sure things are running smoothly and ready to roll. Pete enjoys a good movie and spending his weekends with friends and family.

Rochelle Miedema

MAINTENANCE CREW LEADER

Rochelle joined Dicam in 2015 and has been a valuable member of the Dicam team ever since. Rochelle has an infectious smile and a sure fire way to bring it out is to mention dogs, at all, in any way. Rochelle’s favourite part of landscaping? Being outdoors, especially during Fall!

Hannah VanVliet

BEDS CREW LEADER

Hannah runs our beds crew and can often be found working closely with her sister. Hannah’s favourite season is spring, when everything is fresh and growing green. One of the best parts of the job for her is transforming a neglected garden into a beautiful space. Some of her hobbies include playing the piano and cello (not at the same time).

Trevor Westlake

MAINTENANCE LEAD HAND

Trevor (aka Torque) is our lead hand on residential properties and he helps to bring out the best in our clients backyards. Torque loves the Winter season and snow plowing; whether shoveling walks or out salting it’s his favourite time of year. If he isn’t hard at work Trevor loves cars and working on his own car, he is constantly tweaking it and adding something.

Ruth VanVliet

BEDS CREW LEAD HAND

Ruth can be found in the summer working hard beside her sister, as they restore gardens to their former beauty. This passion of beautiful nature is reflected in her hobbies of hiking and painting. Thanks Ruth for all of your hard work!
