Meet The Whitby Shores Landscaping Team

Andrew Markew - Owner - Whitby Shores Landscaping LTD.

Andrew Markew


Design Consultant / Project Manager

Andrew began his journey in landscaping at the young age of 16. He developed his skill set and eye for design utilizing pieces of each project to compile compelling and intricate landscapes. In 2004, Andrew brought Whitby Shores Landscaping to fruition.

Through hours of hard work, perseverance, and integrity, his clients’ visions came to life. Andrew’s two-man operation grew rapidly into a large multi-faceted company servicing Durham Region and the GTA, and, by 2016, Whitby Shores’ work was recognized and backed by Bryan Baeumler of HGTV to become one of his approved contracting companies in the landscape industry.

Andrew’s passion shines through on every interaction he has with homeowners and each of the projects he leads and he makes every renovation experience for the client as simple and enjoyable as possible and looks forward to working with you.
