Slide backgroundAbout Cultivate Design


We’re a friendly and professional crew here at Cultivate. It helps that we all share one important passion: nature.

Those on the Cultivate team don’t see this as a job. We are truly excited when it comes to horticulture, botanicals, and landscape design. We love plants – and everyone knows, that plants that are loved are even more radiant.

We are exceptionally proud to be one of the Greater Toronto Area’s top boutique landscape design firms. As a small firm, we work with a select number of clients, to ensure that each of our clients gets the high level of attention and passion that you deserve.

Mark Moniz, Founder

Cultivate Design founder Mark Moniz is a seasoned professional whose passion for landscaping is immediately visible.  Mark grew up in garden centres and greenhouses, and was excited about plants from the very beginning. A graduate of Niagara College School of Horticulture, he spent several years honing his skills in the landscaping business, before launching Cultivate Design in 2007.

Mark quickly became known in horticulture circles for his deep knowledge of plants, and his ability to build and inspire a team of professionals who treat nature with care.  Each team member is selected on their ability to balance function and efficiency with reverence – resulting in a level of care unmatched in the city.

A personable leader, Mark develops close relationships with his clients, and has a deep appreciation for each opportunity to create inspired and beautiful spaces.
