Dave Maciulis

Publisher of Outdoor Lifestyle Magazine and Certified Landscape Designer Dave Maciulis will share over 25 years of his designs to creating amazing outdoor living spaces. From outdoor kitchens to swim up bars or dinning and entertaining areas, Dave will reveal how you can turn an ordinary backyard lawn into amazing functional outdoor living.
Presented by:

Dave Maciulis is a Certified Landscape Designer and has been in the industry for more than 20 years. As a business owner and creative force, Maciulis, after hearing from thousands of clients, noted that there appeared to be a gap in the expectations and understanding between the landscape professionals and the consumer. His goal was to connect the two worlds together and take the fear and guess work out of the landscaping process.
Outdoor Lifestyle Magazine was created in order to bridge this gap. After much research, there appeared to be nothing on the bookshelves that spoke to the specific needs of Canadians and their love of living and entertaining in their outdoor spaces. The appeal of our publication is broad. From the landscape contractor to the homeowner with dreams of creating their own outdoor oasis, OL Magazine provides pertinent information on product, current trends in outdoor living and landscape design, as well as being an excellent tool to inspire our readers to think big and find ways to create outdoor spaces that reflect their dreams.
