Natures Effects Landscaping Inc.

Natures Effects is a design-build landscape construction firm founded by Chris Bracken in 2010.  Practicing in the realms of landscape construction and design for the past 20+ years (a Landscape Architect by trade), his passion for finer detail, construction and outdoor living spaces shifted his full-time focus from drawing and managing projects back to hands on implementation from start to finish.

Chris Bracken


Chris’s experience in landscape construction started in 1993 in Southern Ontario. While attending the University of Windsor where he attained his Bachelor of Commerce degree he was employed with Bellaire Landscape Inc. He had a passion for creating new landscapes and this desire lead him to pursue his Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree at the University of Guelph where he graduated in 2005.

This achievement took his career to the City of Calgary and a position with Carson McCulloch Associates Ltd. where he continued for 6 ½ years as a Landscape Architect. He realized that although he loved the design side of the profession he truly missed the construction aspect of the work and the appreciation of creating a memorable space. Some would say that he missed getting his hands dirty!

This passion lead to the creation of Natures Effects Landscaping Inc. in 2010. This design – build venture has allowed him to create custom design landscapes based on his client’s dreams while working with them throughout the process all the while remaining conscious of their budget.

Vary rarely will you ever get the Landscape Architect actually constructing your new space – this is where Natures Effects is different! No miscommunication between the designer and the construction of the project.

I love this work, it is my true passion.
