About Us



Through the ‘90s and early 2000s, Len and Chris, the owners of Black Toad Contracting provided fencing, decking and landscaping services during seismic downtime.

After working successfully together over many seismic seasons, it only made sense when oil boomed to start a small seismic survey company of their own.

Things boomed for a number of years and seeing an opportunity to expand our services, we quickly added mulching, slashing and line locating to our offering.

Several years ago, the slow down in the oil and gas industry precipitated a shift and we returned to our roots - building fences and decks and landscaping.

We also saw opportunities to use our mulchers in other contexts - private acreages, government contracts, support services for other mulching companies, private industry, etc.
