Blake Tubby, Designer, Estimator & Project Manager

Blake grew up around the family business often spending Saturdays in his childhood driving around with his dad visiting the Arbordale worksites, and attempting to work alongside with the crews. Blake started his Arbordale career in the summer of 2001 after graduating high school, and then went on to graduate from Humber College in the Landscape Technician program. At Humber he studied horticulture, design, and landscape construction practices. After several years as a crew member, lead hand, and then project foreman, he now uses his knowledge of construction as a designer, estimator, and project manager for the business.

Blake continues to further his education by participating in numerous seminars and training sessions through Landscape Ontario and other affiliated associations. He has taught Landscape Estimating at Humber College, and has been Arbordales safety manager since 2009. Blakes love of the outdoors first stemmed from fond memories of growing up around the family business, and activities like hiking, soccer and golf.
