Sol Landscaping is proudly owner-operated by Roberto Diaz and Sarah Ftichar. We bring with us over a decade of landscaping and customer service experience as well as an impeccable attention to detail. We carefully select our team of professionals each landscaping season to ensure that we have the strongest, most reliable and skillful team possible.
Every project is overseen by Roberto to ensure that quality is never compromised. Our job is not finished until our customers' expectations are met and exceeded.
Roberto was originally born in Mexico and lived for several years in California before travelling to Calgary in 2007 for what was supposed to be a short-term project. While in Calgary, Roberto met his future wife, Sarah, and never looked back.
Roberto has over a decade of experience in grading, landscape design and installation. Roberto's attention to detail, unparalleled work ethic and commitment to perfection makes him a rarity in the landscaping world.
Roberto & Sarah have three children, three dogs, 25 chickens and a rooster.
Sarah was born and raised in Calgary. Sarah attended the University of Calgary. After receiving her degree in Political Science, she worked on a variety of Special Projects throughout her professional career. In 2007, Sarah met Roberto and the rest, as they say, is history.
Sarah and Roberto decided to start Sol Landscaping in 2012 as they knew that they had the right skillset, focus and determination to best serve Calgary and surrounding areas. Sarah brings with her a focus on customer service, communications and organization.
What Makes Us Great
Every year, we are so lucky to work with wonderful, dedicated, skillful and amazing people who make up our Sol Landscaping team. Many come back summer after summer to assist on our projects, bringing expertise and dedication that shows in their workmanship. Our teamwork makes us special and we could not serve our customers without such an incredible team of professionals.
"We hired Sol Landscaping to redo our entire back yard, which was in desperate need of work, including: the removal of an old deck and dog run, leveling and re-sodding of a very lumpy and weed-filled lawn, the installation of window wells, a new patio, several flower beds, brick edging, and a stepping stone path. Roberto responded quickly to our inquiry and spent over an hour with us discussing what we would like done and various options to fit our needs. He was very friendly, approachable and knowledgeable, and took the time to answer all of our questions and concerns.
Roberto and his team did a wonderful job in completely overhauling our back yard. They were very conscientious and hard working and paid great attention to detail, whether practical, technical or aesthetic. They were also patient and accommodating to changes and additions along the way. When several days of bad weather held up the work, they even came by on the weekend in order to finish on schedule. On top of the great work, they were very friendly, polite and really pleasant to be around.
Our yard has been completely transformed and we love it - especially the patio! Several people have already asked us about who did our yard. We couldn't be happier with the experience and the work that Sol Landscaping have done. We highly recommend them."

"Roberto and his team did wonderful work at our home. They took our old, uneven backyard and created a beautiful new area for our family to enjoy. I highly recommend Sol Landscaping for anyone looking to re-do their yards."

"Joanne and I would like to extend our appreciation to you, your crew, and Sol Landscaping for the wonderful landscaping work that was recently performed in our back yard. We were very pleased with the work on our retaining wall, the re-sodding, and manufacturing of the new gardens. Most importantly, you were always available for assistance right from the quoting process to the end of the job and your were able to maintain the quotation price even though there were unexpected modifications along the way.
We will definitely rely on your company for any future landscaping work that we may require and would personally recommend you highly to anyone in need of existing landscaping."
