Horticultural Lineage

Two Generations of Gardeners

Eric Shelley was a supervisor at the Butchart Gardens for over 20 years, a certified horticulturalist through BCLNA, and a graduate of the Guelph University horticulture program. His son, Wes Shelley, learned about gardening from a very young age, helping Eric with his weekend and after work residential clients and learning the best practices of the industry. After gaining over 9 years of horticultural experience and training under his Father, Wes started his own landscape maintenance company, Mow Victoria, in 2005. Eric retired from his long career at Butchart Gardens in 2007 to start Beechwood Landscaping and both he and Wes were friendly competitors until Eric's retirement in 2016. Wes incorporated his company in 2014 as Fallingwater Property Services and we now operate under that banner, with a highly skilled staff of over 20 people.

Testimonials

The Fallingwater team is a very professional, incredibly organized, and enthusiastic crew. Their horticultural knowledge and education provides excellent service to my strata properties. Communication is the key to a great working relationship and this is where they excel with providing weekly site reports for my strata’s making my job more efficient for communication with my properties.
— Sharon H. ~ Firm Property Management
For the past 5-6 years it has been a pleasure to have Fallingwater with its owner, Wes Shelley and his employees, be involved in my garden. They have done an excellent job of mowing, edging, pruning and general clean up of my 1/3 acre, as well as installation of a new irrigation system. They have always been polite, caring, attending to details and fair in their business dealings.
I would certainly recommend their company.
— Trish H. ~ Central Saanich Residence
We have had the crew provide both general yard maintenance and a larger install which included design, planning, grading, planting, lighting and irrigation. In both cases, the staff explained exactly what to expect and when to expect the work to happen. They gave notice of any changes and then followed up after the work to ensure complete customer satisfaction.

I only have positive things to say about Fallingwater Property Services and we will definitely have Wes, Drew and the crew back for our next project!
— Denise H. ~ Cadboro Bay Residence


 

The Origin of 'fallingwater'

"You may be familiar with the American Architect, Frank Lloyd Wright and, if you are you likely know of his most famous building- 'Fallingwater', located within the Bear Run nature reserve in Pennsylvania. The Fallingwater residence embodied Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural credo- a focus on organic form and a balance between home and nature. This architectural credo, and Mr. Wright's architectural approach has always resonated with me and I am honoured to offer an homage to his life's work in the naming of my company. Our logo, designed by Joey Bulman, used Mr. Wright's stained glass window making as the inspiration for the graphic."
