As one of Vancouver’s top commercial landscapers, Florenco incorporates a variety of superior flora, to transform barren public spaces into dazzling areas of colour, to be enjoyed by all. Colouring your corner of the cityscape.

Florenco plants 50,000 spring bulbs in downtown Vancouver

Constant colour requires effective planning and regular maintenance. During the fall, spring flowering bulbs and winter flowering annuals are planted. Come springtime we cover the cityscape with vibrant summer annuals. All plant material is professionally maintained year round to maximize colour and extend our client’s investment.

Strict work calendars optimize beautiful plant material and maximize our client’s investment

With 45 years experience in the commercial landscaping business, we understand the importance of a regular maintenance calendar to ensure the optimal appearance of plant material, regardless of the season. Tim Stone, President, is fond of saying “anything less and the plants will let us know”.

Our flora is always of superior quality because our suppliers respect Florenco’s commitment to providing the best quality plants as part of their service to clients.

Florenco hangs nearly 900 king-sized, commercial hanging baskets each May – majestic globes colouring the cityscape.

We put tremendous quality and service into our baskets. The basket program has been refined over 25 years to optimize color over the peak season of June through September. A diligent maintenance schedule ensures these commercial hanging baskets maintain their dazzling brilliance over the hot summer months.

The Team

A deep-rooted family business

This company, a thriving family business, has deep roots. Tim Stone has loyal clients dating back to 1970: the year Florenco was incorporated.

“Back in the late 70s I was working in Summerland, at a greenhouse belonging to one of Florenco’s principals. I was there until April 1978, when I moved back to Vancouver, because of the increasing demand for our services downtown. At that time, the company was under the directorship of Ben Viersen. In 1991, I purchased Florenco. Since then Florenco has grown to employ 19 staff. I’ve been doing this one thing my whole life. I became a ticketed journeyman in 1988. It’s my trade. It’s in my blood.”
