Having had 2 previous careers, one as a music producer, and later as a jewelry designer, Wolfe never envisioned he would be involved in the horticulture world.  Forced to build gardens around his booths at several of the medieval festivals he sold his jewelry at, he soon discovered he had both a knack and a passion for gardening.  Wolfgang_Bonham.png

In his spare time he began attending workshops and seminars at the RBG and TBG, as well as Mohawk College courses.  He soon realized he was only a few credits shy of achieving his Honours Certificates in both Landscape Design and Horticulture.   

To further his plant knowledge he worked for Fernridge Landscaping under renowned gardener Sean James, and then as a nursery manager for Terra Greenhouses.  Ten years ago he stepped out on his own to form his landscaping design/build company, 'Peace, Love, and Landscaping' (www.peacelovelandscaping.com) serving clients in Burlington, Oakville, and Hamilton.  

Several of his installations have achieved both garden industry and community awards.  He is also one of the very few certified Dry Stone Wallers in Canada, and is a former member of the Board of Directors for the Oakville Horticultural Society.  He has also had the opportunity to study Japanese Garden Design in Japan, and is a certified Feng Shui consultant.  

When he's not designing or building landscapes he can be found restoring vintage motorcycles, hiking/snowshoeing in the woods, or backpacking around the world visiting botanical gardens and going on garden tours.
