Peter co-founded Oriole Landscaping in 1986 with his business partner, George Urvari, starting with designing and building simple landscapes for Toronto homeowners, in order to put themselves through university. Over the years Peter has worked diligently to build an award-winning firm offering landscape design, construction and project management. His personal mission is to make every client a “raving fan,” and Oriole’s success over the years undoubtedly speaks to this drive to impress.
An active and supportive member of the green industry, Peter has held multiple positions over the years, including past Chair of Canada Blooms, currently on the Board for Landscape Ontario, past Chair of the Contractor Sector group and Vice Chair of the Landscape Canada Committee with the Canadian Nursery and Landscape Association.
Peter has spoken at many industry events sharing his experience and knowledge to help advance the profession. He has recently been certified as an LMN consultant to provide workshops across North America and to help many more achieve success.
Peter currently lives in Toronto with his wife Alana and their two boys. He has had a lifelong interest in running, skiing, canoeing and mountain biking. More recently, he can also be found playing hockey with friends or Oriole staff.
Peter acquired Certification in Fusion Landscaping in March 2021.
