A little bit about who we are…


Hinkley/Associates offers a full range of Residential Landscape Design and Construction services. The company is operated and managed by Stephen Hinkley and Mike Badovinac, who have each earned a Bachelor’s degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Guelph (’85 & ’95). That education, combined with their considerable experience, has instilled an appreciation for both the Design and Construction processes and has enabled us to appreciate and advise our clients about the restrictions one puts on the other.

Our facilities are located near Trafalgar Road & Highway 407, making us well-positioned to service properties in Burlington/Halton Hills/Oakville/Milton, Mississauga and Etobicoke.


Our knowledge is your benefit


Delivering Design & Building excellence since 1982 - That’s 37 years experience, so far...


The Design Phase

Commissioning a Landscape Designer is probably the most important step you can take towards meeting your expectations. It’s often said that “the beauty is in the details” and as you might appreciate, choosing and arranging these details takes time, knowledge and experience.

Choose a designer who has the first-hand knowledge and experience to bring your wishes to life… Choose Hinkley/associates!

Construction PHASE

If you’ve made it this far, CONGRATULATIONS are in order! You’re well on the way to undergoing one of the most exciting projects a homeowner can undertake. During this phase of the project we will bring organised-chaos to your home.

Yes, we’ll generate a bit of noise, a bit of mud and a bit of dust. However, in the end, we make a promise to all our customers that the results will exceed their expectations!


Just like replacing a cracked windshield or new brake pads on your car, your property also requires a certain amount of care and maintenance to keep it looking nice. Rest-assured that we are available to support our customers with advice or services should they be required.

We’re only a click away!

We have had an excellent relationship with Hinkley/Associates for many years and have found them to be professional, friendly and responsive. The folks working on-site reflect all of the same qualities. The projects they have done for us have been of the highest quality, within budget, and exceeded our expectations in every way. We wouldn’t consider having anyone else.
