Greg WildeboerCEO/ Owner
After graduating from Ridgetown College in 1993 with an Ornamental Horticulture diploma, I set out to establish my mark in the industry. Whispering Pines was created and since then I have been provided the opportunity to work with exceptional clients and dedicated vendors, while developing a team of loyal staff.
Melissa BrouwerGeneral Manager
Since beginning my career at Whispering Pines over 10 years ago I have developed a strong passion for flowers and the outdoors. I attended Niagara College and received a Horticulture Technician diploma. I love a challenge and moved from labourer to operations to management. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends in the beautiful outdoors.

I am proud to have been a part of growing the company and helping to develop policies and procedures as part of the Management Team. I was born and raised on a farm in the Orangeville area and have 16 years experience in the automotive industry before joining WPL.

Greg VanEerdeConstruction Sales
I started in the industry as a summer student with a local landscaper and my love for stone and equipment become my passion. After finishing my schooling, I moved into the masonry field where I became a mason. Years later found myself back in the landscape industry working at Whispering Pines as a crew leader. After venturing off for seven years to run my own landscape company, I am happy to once again call Whispering Pines my work home and after some 27 years landscaping is still my passion!
Grant HaganConstruction Manager
My landscape career started as a labourer with Whispering Pines 24 years ago. After 6 years of employment and working my way up to crew leader, I moved on to start my own landscape construction business. After 17 years of operating my own business I am thrilled to be back with Whispering Pines as the construction manager.
Joshua MedemblikLandscape Sales
My passion for Landscaping started at a young age helping with the maintenance at my parents property, which translated into a small landscape and snow removal business with my brothers. After school I started working for a local landscape business and in 2017 I joined the Whispering Pines team. I am thrilled to be part of the team providing world class landscape construction and maintenance to all our wonderful clients. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, enjoying the great outdoors and playing golf.
