John Muir


John has been creating beautiful structures in wood for our landscaping projects since 1995. He came to us having worked in carpentry and renovation for close to two decades, first through a kitchen renovation company and then his own company, Houseproud Renovation. In his life before carpentry, he went to the University of Guelph and worked in a lab at the University of Toronto.

Today John is a Carpentry Supervisor/Foreman for Oriole Landscaping.

John has long been an avid traveller and vintage motorcycle enthusiast. He has travelled throughout the world with his wife Margrieta, a landscape designer, enjoying the art, architecture and botanical gardens in numerous countries. His love of vintage motorcycles has taken him on many adventures too, including the recent Lucas Memorial Push, an annual “pushing” of vintage motorcycle through Toronto (to at least one pub, anyway). John has restored several bikes over the years and is currently working on two BMWs.

Toronto has always been home to John and he lives their today with his wife. They have two sons, Krisjanis and Zintis.
