Who We Are
Asahi is a company that is as unique as its name. We have many employees but primarily run owner-operated crews. Each employee is fully uniformed, licensed and bonded. All are part of our proven training program. Every employee, from our lead foreman to our most junior push mower operator is equipped with a 2-way VHS radio that is integrated with their hearing protection.
We believe very few of our competitors offer the organization and competence Asahi offers. Dollar for dollar, you will get more for your money from us. Our estimates are proposals and are often reworked to tailor service levels to our customer’s landscape budget – to your exact requirements and expectations. We want your business! We should be able to provide references from sites that are just like yours. Please call or email us with any questions or to request a maintenance proposal or renovation estimate. We are familiar with all types of landscapes. We can get the most for you from your landscape budget!
Our trucks and all of our tools are top of the line commercial equipment. Our primary work platforms consist of 3 ton – 7 passenger dump trucks coupled to 22′ enclosed trailers (each complete with an RV-style bathroom!). We employ a large, state of the art fleet of riding and walk behind lawn mowers. We use one of the most extensive and professional selections of hand held landscape maintenance machinery in Kelowna and area. All of our equipment is carefully chosen and maintained not only to produce the very best results but also to minimize the environmental impact of our efforts. In the unlikely event that your site would require specialized equipment, it would be procured promptly.
We are approved contractors for B.C. Buildings Corp. (Provincially owned sites) and are also licensed Landscape IPM (herbicide and pesticide) applicators. We are working towards zero use of landscape chemical pesticides on all of the properties we maintain. When applying herbicides, we use the smallest amount of active ingredient as possible, using only the most modern and carefully calibrated spraying equipment.
We carry a comprehensive contractor insurance policy that includes 5 million dollars of liability coverage. We have an exemplary 23-year safety record.
We pride ourselves on being accountable and would value your business.
