Stéphanie Bonin, Principal

My interest in Landscape Architecture began during my undergraduate studies in Biology (Concordia University, Montréal, Québec, Canada) when I was intrigued by how I could improve the design of zoo enclosures for its residing animal species.  I went on to obtain my Landscape Architecture degree from the University of Guelph (Ontario, Canada).   I gained work experience in firms in the provinces of Ontario and Québec, specializing in various domains such as large scale residential and commercial developments.  I became a full member of the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA) and of the Association des Architectes Paysagistes du Québec (AAPQ).


I began my private landscape architecture practice in 2005 within my home town of Baie-D'Urfé, Québec (west island of Montréal).  I offer a specialized service that combines my love for design and of nature, giving meaning, beauty and use to outdoor spaces.  

My practice is built from referrals from satisfied clients.  It would be my pleasure to collaborate with you on your future outdoor renovation project.
