Our Team

Geller’s was born from a true love of working outdoors and designing beautiful spaces. We are a family run business stretching across generations from the infamous Aunt Jacqui, to company owner Matt, and brothers Jesse, Jackson, Brandon & Sean. Geller’s was created to provide an alternative to the napkin sketches and spray painted plans of the past. With proper planning and attention to detail Geller’s is able to design, build, landscape and maintain stunning outdoor spaces. As the company has grown, so has our experience to include various industry awards, certifications, and flagship projects.
 

As a family run business we provide a high level of communication paired with professional design and build services. We are partners with home owners, builders and other contractors to ensure a smooth process from our initial meeting to the end of the project. The majority of our work is completed by our very own certified and educated staff allowing us to maintain the highest level of quality control on site.

While many companies walk away from a project upon completion, we have a large maintenance division dedicated to ensuring your landscape improves with time. From weekly lawn service visits to pruning and flower bed upkeep, we are dedicated to creating a lasting landscape and outdoor space within your property. We love building relationships that stand the test of time - we are here year after year to count on for all your outdoor services.

Landscaping Crew
Indy Headshot.jpg
I'm a licensed landscape architect with over a decade of experience from two Canadian design firms and consulting.

In recent years, I led a design team, handled business development, and created landscape designs for residential and commercial projects at a Canadian landscape design-build firm. Thrilled to join the Geller's team, I'm eager to contribute to crafting projects clients will adore.

Outside work, I'm into movies, family time, riding my Moto Guzzi Motorcycle, and enjoying time with my dog, Marley.

I love landscape design because it combines aesthetics, functional planning and creative problem solving. I chose to pursue a Bachelor's degree in landscape design & urbanism because of my love & passion for plants and time outdoors. 

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, learning new piano pieces and working towards learning new Yoga poses.

I started in the industry in 2009 as a seasonal sales rep at Rona, selling Barkman products, and soon realized I'd much rather build and create with these products instead of selling them. Not long after, I started as a labourer for a landscaping company.

One thing I love about our work is creating spaces for people and families that are designed to change and grow over time as the plant material matures. 

I enjoy cycling, and one of my proudest achievements to date was acquiring my Certified Associate in Project Management designation through the Project Management Institute.

I joined Geller's in 2017 and worked as part of the maintenance division for 4 years before switching to the landscape construction division. The spaces we created led me to want to get my Red Seal in Landscape Horticulture which I received in 2023. 

My favourite thing about my job is that I get to do something different and learn something new each day by bringing new landscape products to our customer's yards. 

In my spare time I enjoy staying active. You can find me at your local YMCA, playing football or walking my dog, Leonard.

When I was 15, my brother, Matt, introduced me to the industry. I didn’t really have a choice.

My favourite part is the people I work with and getting to see the unique projects we get to work on from start to finish.

My proudest achievement is marrying my best friend and the love of my life. I am also a 3-time fantasy football champion and 2-time fantasy hockey champion!

I started working with Geller's in 2022 but it doesn't really feel like work because I love what I do!

I cut grass, curate lawns and anything else I can do to make sure your lawn is up to par.

Outside of work, nothing gives me as much joy as spending time with my kids!

After leaving my accounting career to 'go play in the dirt' I began working in Landscaping in 2013 obtaining my Red Seal in the Landscape Horticulture Apprenticeship program in 2016.

The thing I love most about my job is the look on the client's face when they see what their new yard looks like. 

While I spend my summers with Geller’s, in the winter I am one of 2 instructors teaching Landscape Horticulture Apprenticeship at Red River College Polytechnic. I began this amazing career in 2019 and I am proud to be teaching Landscape Journeypersons in Manitoba’s only green industry education program.

 
When I’m not working in client’s yards or teaching landscapers cool planty things, I enjoy working on my own private oasis, spending time with family, and going to rock concerts.

I graduated from the University of Manitoba's Environmental Design program in 2022, and I am currently working towards my Master's of Landscape Architecture - also at the University of Manitoba.

I am a transplant to Winnipeg, am originally from Thompson, Manitoba. This is where my interest in landscape design was born, as my friends and I had the northern boreal forest surrounding the city as our playground. 
 
In my free time I love to cook and I am always striving to shave a few strokes off of my golf game. 
 
I am also a life-long suffering fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

I started in the industry when I was 14. I worked with my uncle in Vancouver.

My favourite thing about my job is seeing a project go from start to finish. The visual progression at the end of each day is very motivating, knowing that we’re creating projects that people will love and enjoy.

My greatest accomplishment was working on a 32,000 sqft paving stone install for a legislative building in Regina.

Fun fact - I am a huge blues/rock fan!

I chose carpentry because my dad was a carpenter, so I've been around carpentry my whole life. What I enjoy most about my job is the crew of people who I work with and the opportunity to work with high end products. 

In my free time I like to take my dog Molly to the park, she rules!

Matt Bell.jpg
I've been in the industry since I was 15. I started Geller's by knocking on doors saying, "Hi, I'm Matt, and I would like to cut your grass."

I love the friendships I have made over the years with clients, staff and vendors working together to make outdoor living beautiful. I rarely sleep; I can’t wait to wake up and go to work!

In my humble opinion, the team we have put together at Geller's is the best damn landscape group in the industry. The greatest joy of my life is watching my son Beano grow up with my amazing wife, Madison.

Geller's was my introduction to the landscaping industry in 2017. It inspired me to get a degree in environmental design at the University of Manitoba.

I love having the ability to design really unique and creative projects that clients enjoy for years afterwards. Seeing clients get excited about their projects makes me excited!

I have a standard poodle named Eddie, and one of my favourite things to do is sit in the sunroom at the lake and read.

I started working in the industry in 2011, doing residential lawn maintenance.

My favourite thing about work is the people. Whether it's a new client, new staff member, sub-trade, or supplier, I love meeting new people and hearing their stories.

I own two yellow labs and enjoy spending my free time exploring what the world has to offer by means of hunting and fishing.

My career in landscaping started on Vancouver island where the main focus was water management. I completed additional projects in Kelowna where the main focus was irrigation and I eventually became an irrigation technician.

The cold weather here in Winnipeg makes the base of a landscape the most important part of any project!

There is something really special about creating a beautiful space for people to enjoy being outside.

When I'm not working I enjoy any outdoor activity such as hiking, biking, camping and fishing. I have also recently picked up a pottery wheel. Learning to turn simple clay into something both beautiful and functional is something I really enjoy!

Sean Wilde.jpg
I started lawn maintenance in high school and transitioned into decks, fences and landscaping. Eventually, taking on concrete restoration and installation. All contributing factors in pool installation!

I love everything about my job and field of work, but if I had to choose one, it would be seeing the end result and clients satisfied and thankful for a job well done! I love seeing a pool install go from a big hole in the ground to a fully functioning fibreglass pool - along with the many important steps in between!

My proudest achievement would be becoming a father and watching my two kids grow up.

I chose carpentry for my profession since I've always had a passion for building and my favourite part of my job is definitely feeling the satisfaction of building and creating structures and spaces that our clients love and that capture their vision. 

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my son creating memories that we will both enjoy for years to come.

I had worked my whole life in the travel industry until Matt approached me in May 2016 about coming to work at Geller's.

My favourite thing about this job is the people, of course!

I am the youngest of 6 children and growing up in our house, we had no choice but to cheer for the Toronto Maple Leafs, as my Dad was their biggest fan. To this day, we still root for them… Go Leafs Go! I love spending weekends at the cabin with my daughter and partner, Darren.
