We picture a world where everyone has access to a beautiful outdoor space and an edible garden.
LandKind was founded in 2015 with the desire to transform the outdoors into beautiful, sustainable, and productive spaces, through landscape design and urban agriculture. In fact, our speciality is combining both into one seamless design, so that our clients can enjoy their land, as well as eat from it.
Our unique design solutions are created for residences and condos, school and youth centres, hospitals and senior centres, offices and corporations, and restaurants and hotels.
Abbagail McRuer, BLA, CUSA
Abbagail's love for design and the outdoors started early in life. With a family of graphic designers and gardeners, and a weekend cottage affectionately named “The Land”, she not only found her calling but also the found name of the company. Combining her love for the outdoors and design, she graduated with a Bachelors of Landscape Architecture from the University of Guelph and continued her education and obtained her certificate in Sustainable Urban Agriculture. Abbagail has written many industry articles and has been interviewed several times about the importance of growing your own food. She hopes to close the gap between where food is grown and where it is eaten, through sustainable design. She is an Associate Member of the Ontario Association of Landscape Architects and is in the process of getting her stamp.
