Our Mission Statement
Scapes provides customized professional landscape design services that give
clients the outdoor alternatives they need.
Prairie Scapes - What's in a name?
- Business name's have all sorts of origins. At first glance, the 'Scapes'
of the name is easy - considering Landscaping is our business.
makes clear sense considering our location and market. It also has
significance to the Prairie Horticulture Certificate that one of our
founders, Fern Kobewka, has.
But there is another basis for P.S. The initials P.S. have a noteworthy meaning to Alberta, particularly
Central Alberta area. Paul Sveinson lived and farmed for many years in
Burnt Lake area, west of Red Deer. As a young boy, he arrived during
times with his family. The Sveinson and Swainson name is
well known around these parts. The other founder of Prairie Scapes,
Leonard Paul Kobewka, is Paul's grandson. He is proud of the heritage
brought him back. He spent much time at Grandpa and Grandma's (Paul and
Violet's) farm as a boy. Len and Fern are here to stay - and Prairie Scapes will be a part of a continuing heritage.
