Mike Forbes, the owner, has always had the passion to work outdoors. This prompted him to take the Landscaping Program at Durham College.  In 1985, after graduating, Mike started working in landscape services industry. His love for the work and enjoyment of being outdoors motivated him to take on landscaping projects on nights and weekends on his own after putting in his regular shift for his daytime employer.   It wasn’t long before Mike had established a regular clientele who saw the value of Mike’s passion and dedication to his work. In 1989 he formed his own company, Acorn Landscaping.   Acorn’s basic philosophy is the same today as it was back in 1989, to grow the business one satisfied customer at a time.
