Jim Philip

Operations Director

Fresh out of high school, I ventured to Calgary to work full time with the largest landscape maintenance company in the city. I so thoroughly enjoyed working outdoors and landscaping that I decided to move back home two years later to work with Longwood Landscape Construction to further develop my hardscape skills. A year later, Longwood and all employees joined forces with Scott Wentworth and became known as The Scott Wentworth Landscape Group.

With Brian Ferreira as a mentor, I developed skills quickly and was inspired to share my passion for creating inviting outdoor living spaces with co-workers in the capacity of foreman.

As Operations Manager for the past 6 years, I have been responsible for overseeing the production side of our company. We currently have 45 staff members in the field, and 15 crews working from Port Hope to Ganonoque. I am proud to have contributed to the development of key staff members, and to have helped individuals acquire the appropriate skills to become team leaders, division managers, and project managers within our company. That is what is different about Wentworth Landscape Group, we all feel as it is " our team, our chosen profession, our company".
