The road to these businesses is a very interesting one. Our story starts with a 3rd generation landscaper, who started a successful landscaping company, then was given some of life’s lemons and ended up making an amazing pitcher of lemonade.

How are they connected?
KERT Landscaping Ltd.
KERT Landscaping Ltd. is a business working in the Tri-City area since 2000. Today, we are strictly known as a snow clearing company. Originally, Kert Landscaping was a construction landscaping company known for quality work, traditional European craftsmanship, and timely project completion.
Steven is the oldest son of Fred Eglsaer, hailing from Montreal. Steven has been involved in the landscaping profession since 1986 when he started working for the family-owned and managed company called KERT Landscape Ltd. KERT Landscape Ltd. has been a very reputable business, providing superior service to Montreal and surrounding areas from 1962 to 2012. They were a fully licensed and insured landscape design and installation company in the summer and a premium snow removal company in the winter.
Iconic Carz Ltd, One day in 2012, after completing a job and putting the tools in the truck, there was a stabbing pain in my left knee. I found out that I had torn my MCL, and after a few doctor visits with doctors and specialist, I was advised to end my landscaping career.
Kert Landscaping continued through 2012-13 using sub-contractors to help out, but the quality of craftsmanship was not the same and the knee was just not healing like it should.
In 2013, in the middle of the night, the idea of Iconic Carz Ltd. was born. The landscaping company would become a winter business focusing on snow clearing and the dream of building TV show cars would be the summer job.
Kert Landscaping Ltd. was always active in the community through fundraisers and annual donations to various charities.
Together We Can Make a Difference.
Building TV show cars and taking them to do fundraising is a great deal of fun, but as a business it doesn’t work that well. Throughout this, people started asking if we could do signage and shirts for them for their business and this spun Iconic Carz into another direction. In 2022 Iconic Carz was re-branded to Iconic Carz – Entertainment to separate the events and carz from the sign shop.
This gave me the flexibility to earn money during the summer months and really explore my creativity, and provide the quality work and traditional European craftsmanship that I was so missing from my landscaping business.
Under Iconic Carz-Signz and Apparelz a one stop shop, we are able to help you with all your projects as well increasing our fundraising by selling our own line products, from shirts, mugs and prints of various sizes at the event along with printing and displaying multiple 20 foot backdrops and working with cos players.
