Kari Tolppanen

Kari brings a Scandinavian sensibility to Lawrence Park. He was born in Finland where he studied landscape design, construction and maintenance.

Upon completion of his studies, he was invited by the college from which he graduated to join the faculty to teach those subjects both at elementary and advanced levels. His college also sent him to England for a few months to study golf course construction and maintenance. Kari immigrated to Canada in 1999. After completion of his Master’s degree in B.C., he moved to Toronto where he finished his Ph.D. a few years later.

At Lawrence Park, Kari works as a landscape designer. He loves meeting with clients and designing beautiful gardens which bring happiness to his clients’ lives. Kari says that few things bring him more happiness than satisfied, happy customers.
