WHAT DRIVES US
The idea was simple: make it easy for the owners in luxury condominium communities to transform their bare balconies and terraces into beautiful extensions of their homes.
In November 2011 we launched our first version of gardenconnections.com. Our first balcony transformations were created for the developer of Shangri-La Toronto, residences and private estates and installed in the winter of 2012-13. Those first balcony upgrade models represented a very steep learning curve. While they were very successful for our first developer client we were not an instant success. The first few years were particularly humble. We started with initial investments by wonderful friends and family. We were ahead of the curve and bootstrapped a lot of the innovation we created. We went through a series of learning experiences. Our fabrication and installation was slow. Our website was confusing. Developers were still stinging from the 2008-09 financial crisis. But we stuck with it. Listened to our customers. Improved our systems. Became experts in the ecosystem of our market space. Embraced new technology and user interface. Supply chain and logistics. Subsequent condo owners were enabled to transform their bare balconies into fulfilling, beautiful extensions of their new homes to complete their luxury condominium living lifestyle.
Out of this innovative work emerged the unique branded solution for Condo Buyers and Owners called The Beautiful Balcony Solution™ Program; for Condominium Developers, The Beautiful Balcony Advantage™ Program, and for Property Managers, Condominium Boards and Strata Councils, we created a physical space management program that works in tandem with The Solutions Program™ called, The EUCA Upgrade Management Program™. These programs are in service in various buildings in Toronto and soon in Vancouver, BC. Now condo buyers and owners can capitalize on Garden Connections' experience and expertise to avoid the disappointment and unnecessary expenses of The No-Plan Trap™ when transforming their bare balconies and terraces.
At Garden Connections, quality isn’t a single thing. It is everything. It is in the beautiful designs, the selection of materials, the fabrication procedures that come together to transform bare and barren balconies and terraces into beautiful personal outdoor spaces with gorgeous finishes and uncompromising fit. It is in the care we take of each Garden Connections balcony owner to create a balcony or terrace experience that is, quite simply, without equal. Some say that we are Obsessed. Yes, thank you, that we are. It began with Frederick Hann, an award winning master landscape architect driven to design and to create the most beautiful balconies and terraces in the world for the buyers and owners of luxury condominium homes. We take pride in what we create. The pursuit of excellence continues.
