About Us

Abacus has a reputation for being serious about their craft and providing a high level of service. Our goal is to build and maintain beautiful and functional gardens.

Abacus was started over 20 years ago by Pierre Filisetti, one of the most highly regarded European-trained landscape specialists in British Columbia. His love for landscaping stems from growing up in the rural Italian Alps. Having no playgrounds or sports fields as distractions, he spent countless hours as a boy alongside his grandfather in the forest picking chestnuts, berries and mushrooms. This is where he developed a life-long love for the natural element. As a young adult, Pierre left his village to pursue technical training in forestry and agriculture.

In 1991 he became an owner and operator in Kamloops, B.C. quickly establishing himself with a number of commercial and residential landscaping projects. Pierre also worked in Victoria, B.C. for a few years before returning to Kamloops to continue his legacy of unsurpassed customer service and dedication to superior workmanship.
