Removed fence and extended driveway

This is the second time we have hired Angelo with All Pro Landscaping and Carpentry. We were totally happy and 100% satisfied with his work and customer service. We had a fence in the back portion of our driveway that separated our side of the driveway from the neighbors. The fence was falling down, so we hired Angelo to come remove it for us, as well dig up some old planters and extend our driveway. I called him kind of last minute in the season, and he was really great to squeeze us in between other clients. He finished the project really fast and did an excellent job.

In terms of the price of the job, I am not really sure because he is the only quote I got, but I think his prices are fair. Make sure you book him early, because he is really busy.

His office manager (Ann) is also great to work with. She is really friendly, organized and very responsive. We will be hiring All Pro to redo our back yard when we are ready as well.

Rescue Job: My faith in humanity has been restored...

The stone cladding on our front entrance stairs was coming apart. The first contractor demolished the stairs in a decent manner, however, as is all too common, he took some money and never came back. Our front stairs were left in ruins for more than a month as we tried in vain to reach the first contractor. This is where the All Pro team came to the rescue. Despite being busy, they were sympathetic and made the time to help us out with a rescue job. They were professional, courteous, and the workmanship was fantastic. Ann, Angelo, thank you for being so wonderful!

Company Response

When you called the ALL-PRO office, our project construction schedule was fully booked for the season. We were routinely declining invitations to quote on new projects. However, upon hearing your unfortunate story, we tried to find a way to integrate your project into the schedule. It certainly made things challenging for the team, but we wanted to give your story a positive ending.
As it turns out, there was a silver lining. Our crew leader on your project, Dan, is gifted at his craft and improved the original installation. Also, the bagged cement left in your garage by the previous contractor would not have been the optimal material for re-adhering the flagstone to your concrete steps and landing. The material we used is a much better choice for that kind of job. This re-installation project should never have been needed in the first place. The flagstone had been installed only two years ago, but the wrong bonding agent had been used, resulting in the loosening of the flagstone this year.
Thank you for your kind review! We are so glad that we were able to help! All the best, Angelo

Front walkway replacement

We were very satisfied with the work done by All Pro. They were very professional and efficient. We would use them again for another project and would recommend to others

Dear Megan, It’s hard to believe that 20 years have flown by since our previous project for you and Roy! We were delighted to hear from you again this summer. Thank-you for this kind recommendation of ALL-PRO Landscaping to other homeowners. We would be very happy to help you with any project in the future! All the best, Angelo

Retaining Wall

Angelo and his team did a great job on our retaining wall this fall. We've used Angelo at least four times over 35 years for various outdoor and indoor projects and have always been very happy. He's easy to work with, flexible, and his prices are always fair.

Wow! As I was responding to Mike Nasser’s review with a note about considering our clients to be akin to family, you were posting this review based on a 35-year professional relationship that dates back to the very inception of ALL-PRO Landscaping in 1985. Thank you so very much for submitting this testimonial. As always, it was a pleasure working with you, and we look forward to next year’s project at the front of your property! Bye for now, Angelo

Backyard Landscaping

Once again Angelo with his professional team came to our rescue to get rid of our wooden patio as our backyard turned into a little zoo with a fox, raccoons, skunk, rabbits etc.
Despite All-Pro other commitments, Angelo redesigned our backyard with interlock and remodelled the Kazebo. The workmanship as usual is terrific, All Pro team are pros.
Thank you Angelo, Dan and all the team for the great job.

When we complete a project for new clients, we tend think of them as family. You and your wife are a perfect example of this. Our initial project for you dates back 12 years to the semi-circular front entrance steps and walkways that we installed in 2008. Over the years, we have helped you with other smaller projects. This year, we were privileged to work with you to transform your backyard into a true oasis, albeit without the wildlife that had inhabited your old deck structure. We wish you many, many happy years of enjoyment in your new backyard sanctuary! All the best, and many thanks, Angelo
(Note to HomeStars readers: The attached image does not reflect the modifications we made to the existing gazebo involving wooden reinforcement/trim and staining.)

Coping replacement/garden wall &porch re-installation/parging

Angelo, and Ann went above and beyond to make this whole experience great. The team of workers are professional, and very personable. All aspects of the job were done with my best interest in mind. I have never had a company put in so much effort to see that I was completely satisfied through the entire process.

Dear Barbara, We are so grateful for your kind words, and are very happy to have been able to take care of your project for you, providing a quality and cost-effective solution. When you first called our office, you thought that you would need to replace your entire porch/step structure with new wall units and pavers. However, at our meeting, I assessed the existing materials and found that only the coping needed to be replaced. The wall units and pavers were still in great shape. We absolutely care about our clients, and about providing them with the most appropriate solution for their needs. Thank you, again, for submitting this review. Wishing you all the best, Angelo

Interlock patio/walway

Angelo and his crew prepped and laid an interlock patio and walkway over a filled in pool. the remainder of the yard was prepped for artificial grass. After some very good suggestions and ideas, the job was completed impeccably. Dan created a flowing ramp with the interlock that was created in a manner that makes it appear that he "bent" the stones to allow it to flow smoothly. Everyone who sees the ramp is incredibly impressed.
Fantastic job!

Larry, it was great to work with you again this season! We greatly appreciate that you posted a review of this new project, in addition to the review that you had posted last December regarding our Fall 2019 project. Your backyard is now perfect. Nothing left for you to do but relax and enjoy! All the best, Angelo
(For HomeStars readers, I should probably clarify that the cost of the synthetic grass we supplied for Larry's backyard is not reflected in the "Job Price approximate cost of services", above. The actual synthetic grass was broken out in a separate ALL-PRO Landscaping contract.)

Front of the house landscaping

We contracted All Pro for a landscaping project in front of the house that included the walkway, the retaining walls, step to the porch and soldier course around the driveway.
Angelo and his team were very professional every step of the way. The contract included details on the foundation to be used for the installation, which other contractors do not mention; the materials were sourced locally; the price was very competitive.
The team went above the expectations and paid a lot of attention to minor details. They even did work not specified in the contract, just to make everything look good.
We already asked Angelo to come again next year for another project.
I strongly recommend All Pro for any landscaping projects. We are really happy with the outcome.

Company Response

Thank-you, B, for sharing this detailed account of your experience with ALL-PRO Landscaping! We do have a great team and I will be certain to let them know that you mentioned their professionalism.
Yes, our quotations and contracts are quite detailed. I believe that it is important for homeowners to be aware of what kind of base and bedding materials are being installed beneath their pavers, and the layer thickness of those materials. Generally, a driveway or parking pad area, for example, would require a deeper excavation and thicker base layer than a pedestrian-only area such as a walkway or patio area.
Again, many thanks for this review. We look forward to working with you again in 2021 for the transformation of your backyard patio and side walkway. Bye for now, Angelo

Patio and French drain system

Review

We had ALL-PRO Landscaping install a new stone patio and French drain system in our backyard this summer. Even with COVID-19 and the relentless heat wave we experienced, Angelo and his team pulled through and delivered a fantastic installation. Our project was delayed a few times due to the many unforeseen circumstances that came through working in a pandemic during a heat wave, but Ann was in touch with us regularly through the process to give us updates along the way. Working with her was also amazing - she is so organized, her emails are always detailed and very helpful, and she’s always willing to get answers. This is a team of people who really care about their work and their customers, and it shows. We weren’t left in the dark on anything and our questions were all answered right away. I’m not even sure how they do it because they are VERY busy given the quality of work they do and being so in demand!

We chose ALL-PRO after doing lots of research and using the reviews here on HomeStars as a big factor in our decision. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ALL-PRO. Angelo is a true master of his craft and his work was incredible. He is the type of person who wants to get the job done RIGHT and not cut any corners, and he’s the type of person you can trust to do a great job. He really went above and beyond, and we are so happy with the final product. Angelo’s team is also hard working and they were all very polite and respectful. Attention to detail was top of mind throughout and the cleanup after was also fantastic - couldn’t find a single piece of anything accidentally left behind! I can’t say enough good things all around - we are so thrilled with how everything turned out!

My one suggestion would be if you want ALL-PRO to do your project, contact them early on as they will book up quickly!

Stones: We chose Winchester pavers in Pewter with Inversa Stone in onyx for the border. Angelo suggested a soldier course for the border and it turned out great. The step is the Large Peninsula step in Charcoal.

Before and after photo attached!

Dear Jesse, Thank you so much for this thoughtful and detailed chronicle of our work for you this year! Yes, we do really care about our customers and our work, and are pleased to hear that it shows! It was a pleasure working with you.
We are grateful for your kind understanding with the approx. three-week delay in starting your project. At the time of the contract signing, we had set the project start range for Late August, weather permitting. We started on Sept. 17 and finished on Saturday the 19th.
Each season, I build contingency buffers into the ALL-PRO Landscaping project construction schedule, to absorb factors that could potentially cause delays … rain, excessive heat, muddy soil conditions, etc. For the first time in 35 years, these buffers were completely consumed by unexpected challenges like widespread material shortages and consistent requests from clients to expand the scope of their projects, even while work was under way! Some projects even doubled in size: from approx. $17,000 to $35,000, and from approx. $32,000 to $74,000. Again, thank you for your patience.
Wishing you many happy and comfortable hours of WINTER barbecuing on your beautiful new patio!! All the best, Angelo

Front door stairs renovation

Many thanks to Angelo, Dan and Jason for the amazing renovation of our front door stairs (see before and after photos). You were professional, punctual and hard working. Angelo you were always reachable to answer our questions by phone and email. The job was completed well within the timelines and on budget. I would not hesitate to come to you for any future stonework or landscaping project. We've received many compliments!

Dear Frances. We are so grateful for your review and the before-and-after images of your front entrance transformation. Your choice of Hampton Limestone Flamed Finish natural stone to clad the existing concrete stoop created a dramatic result, further amplified by your new black wrought iron railing and freshly repaved driveway! (Thanks for editing your review to add this third image!) It was wonderful working with you. All the best, Angelo
(Note to HomeStars Readers regarding Hampton Limestone Flamed Finish installation: 1) 2-inch Coping for the step treads, 2) Square-cut Flagstone for the verticals, and 3) 7-inch x 16-inch x 5-foot rockfaced step at the base where we removed the raised poured concrete mini-platform.)

ALL-PRO LANDSCAPING NOTE RE: COVID-19 . . .
.
On Friday, May 1, Premier Ford announced that our landscape construction sector has been included among those permitted to resume operations on Monday, May 4 — the first stage of Ontario's economic restart.
.
The health and safety of ALL-PRO Landscaping team members and homeowners are of paramount importance to us.
.
We had suspended our landscape construction activities in compliance with the Province's original emergency order of March 17.
.
In the interim, we have been making preparations through the modification of workplace and employee policies and procedures regarding physical distancing, hand & respiratory hygiene, self-assessment for COVID-19 symptoms, and other measures.
.
For example, we are mandating that team members travel individually to and from project sites in their own personal vehicles, with no carpooling allowed. The company owner is the sole designated driver of ALL-PRO's fleet (dump/pick-up trucks), with no passengers riding in the cab. This season, we have opted to limit our construction team complement to five (5) landscapers, including the owner. We supply our team with disposable non-medical masks for use when 2 metres of physical distance is not possible while working. We also provide hand sanitizer as well as a portable, contained hand wash station onsite. These are just a few examples.

These policies and procedures are rooted in the Province of Ontario's Guidance document for our industry sector entitled, "Workplace Safety & Prevention Services (WSPS) Guidance on Health and Safety for Lawn Care Workers during COVID-19".
.
We are regularly monitoring for new Federal and Provincial advisories, and will adjust our policies and procedures accordingly.
.
Wishing you a healthy and safe season ahead.

The Team at ALL-PRO Landscaping

SERVICE AREA . . .
With our office in Highland Creek near the Scarborough-Pickering border, and our yard situated in north Ajax, we concentrate on projects located in the EAST/SOUTHEAST NEIGHBOURHOODS OF SCARBOROUGH (Highland Creek, Rouge Hill, West Rouge, Port Union, Guildwood) AND EASTWARD INTO PICKERING, AJAX & WHITBY. This holds true particularly in the spring. Later in the season (after July), we may take on projects in Oshawa or, possibly, Courtice, for example.

OVER THE PAST 35 YEARS . . .
Over the past 35 years, ALL-PRO Landscaping & Carpentry Ltd. has been designing and constructing beautiful, functional custom landscapes for more than a thousand clients who have entrusted Angelo Tersigni and his landscape construction team with their outdoor living spaces and home curb appeal.
...........
ABOUT US . . .
FOUNDED IN 1985 BY NICOLA TERSIGNI AND 21-YEAR-OLD SON ANGELO, ALL-PRO Landscaping & Carpentry Ltd. specializes in working with clients to enhance the beauty and functionality of the landscape elements that complement and add to the enjoyment of their homes.
> As sole owner and operator for the past 32 years, Angelo continues to honour the family values of integrity and pride of workmanship that are at the very heart of ALL-PRO Landscaping & Carpentry Ltd.; the company he founded with his father 35 years ago. Those values have stood the test of time and continue to translate into satisfied clients. And we are honoured that ALL-PRO is now being called upon by the next generation of our client families to help them with their projects. Angelo personally oversees each project from start to finish.
> About 60 PER CENT of our business each year originates from client referrals (not including HomeStars leads) and from clients who come back to us with ideas for new projects — a testament to our excellence in landscape design and construction services.
...........
A FEW NOTES ABOUT QUOTATIONS . . .
On average, ALL-PRO Landscaping has the capacity to commit to approximately 30 to 40 CLIENT PROJECTS EACH YEAR. During the peak spring/summer period, we receive approximately 20 to 30 quotation requests PER WEEK, sometimes more — but many of these are outside our service area, or, occasionally, some have been too small for us to be able to take on, given the team of landscape construction employees and fleet of equipment that we must support.
.
Angelo personally handles quoting and sales. Hours of work are invested in a typical quotation. Angelo's hand-rendered to-scale drawing of the project design footprint, calculations and shorthand notes are what he requires to develop a quotation price. However, rather than providing homeowners with a bulk dollar amount for the entire project, he goes the extra mile by presenting a detailed, typed "contract specification sheet" that breaks the entire project into individual components — each one defined by price, material specifications and dimensions. It includes warranty, applicable taxes, payment terms and approximate start date range. Ultimately, for homeowners who choose to entrust their project to ALL-PRO Landscaping & Carpentry, this quotation document becomes the signed client contract (usually with some revisions beforehand due to client changes to the project parameters). (Projects of a certain scope and complexity may, of course, also require architectural drawings.)
.
When homeowners reach out to ALL-PRO Landscaping to request a quotation, we are very grateful.
> We also respect their time and want to ensure that we are a good fit for their projects. So our office staff will ask some initial questions before including inquiries on Angelo’s quotation call-back list . . .
.
Q1. WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
Each year, we receive, and must decline, more than a hundred quotation requests from homeowners located outside our service area. (Please refer to the “Service Area” note, above.) However, for our previous clients, we make every effort to accommodate their request.
.
Q2. WHAT IS YOUR PROJECT COMPLETION TARGET DATE?
Some homeowners are working towards a particular project deadline, while others have no target date. This is important for us to know up front, because:
> Our current roster of scheduled projects may make it impossible for us to take on a prospective project requiring delivery within the homeowner's specified time frame.
> At times, Angelo may temporarily suspend quoting. When we are fully booked into September, Angelo stops quoting so that he can focus exclusively on current projects and clients, until he re-opens quoting in mid-August or early September.
In this scenario, our office staff compiles a waiting list of those homeowners who wish to meet with Angelo when he begins quoting again, or we invite them to reach out to us again at a later date.
.
Q3. HOW MANY QUOTATIONS ARE YOU OBTAINING?
We respect and understand the need for homeowners to obtain multiple quotations. Conventional wisdom usually concurs that two or three quotations is prudent (possibly even four), if homeowners do not yet have an established relationship with a trusted contractor.

We respectfully decline to meet with homeowners who are obtaining more than three quotations.
.
Q4. WHAT IS THE SCOPE OF YOUR PROJECT?
The HomeStars company PROFILE format includes a field for “PROJECT MINIMUM”. We have set $5,000 as the minimum.
> HOWEVER, for our previous clients, of course we are glad to come back to help with any landscape construction job, no matter how small.
> For non-client quotation requests, we are, regrettably, unable to take on small projects, given the team of landscape construction employees and fleet of equipment that we must support.
> We appreciate that some homeowners may be unable to gauge whether or not their project would be above the $5,000 minimum threshold. We might be able to help during your initial call when you describe the kind of work you would like to have done.
.
MEETING WITH ANGELO . . .
Angelo's QUOTATION CALL-BACK LIST is updated by office staff. On that spreadsheet, each request is tracked by initial date of inquiry.
> CALL-BACK TIMEFRAME: During the construction season, Angelo strives to touch base with homeowners within two weeks of the date of their initial inquiry logged on the Quotation Call-Back List (unless he had already placed a temporary hold on quoting before the inquiry was received).
> MEETING TIMEFRAME: During the construction season, Angelo does his best to integrate quotation meetings into his existing project work schedule. Client projects always take priority for him — which both current and prospective clients are sure to appreciate. During the offseason from approx. December through March, Angelo does quite a bit of quoting for the upcoming season, weather permitting.

During the peak season, Angelo usually works from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days per week in order to combine jobsite work with sales, scheduling, purchasing, transportation, HR, client relations and other functions. He is at the jobsites daily. Multiple projects are usually under way. Clients deal with Angelo directly on anything pertaining to their projects. He manages the project schedule, calculates and places the orders for project materials and determines crew member assignments each day. His Class AR driver's licence also enables him to minimize production disruptions by serving as the supply lifeline for the jobsites: delivering materials from manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers (paving stones, flagstone, wall systems, boulders, rockery, gravel, screenings, lumber, fencing, topsoil, sod, plant material, etc.), transporting equipment and materials between jobsites and the company's yard in north Ajax, and hauling project debris from the jobsites to the yard or transfer stations. He integrates quotations into this schedule.

SERVICES
We specialize in gently curving walkway, patio and retaining wall footprints and terraced patios and semi-circular steps, all of which require intricate masonry cutting. We help our clients "make a dramatic entrance" — for their homes, that is. We can, for example, transform a builders’ plain concrete front porch and threshold with beautiful square-cut flagstone or interlocking pavers. We can soften the lines of an asphalt driveway by framing it with an arc-shaped "cape" of pavers that extends across the front of the garage and down the edges of the asphalt area; or, we can install pavers throughout. ................................................................................................................................................................................... We use quality materials, both manufactured and natural. We design our clients’ hard landscape elements with pre-cast concrete interlocking pavers and wall stones, and with Natural Stone products such as flagstone and steps from Kawartha Rock Quarry, Silver Valley or elsewhere. And, of course, we install Armour Stone, Washed River Rock and assorted sizes of rockery accents from various sources. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... Our clients can choose from cedar, pressure-treated lumber or TrexTM composite decking or opt for a raised stone patio-terrace instead of a deck for their back yard living and entertaining spaces. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... For perimeter fencing and privacy screening, our clients have the option of cedar, pressure-treated lumber, composite fence materials, wrought iron or strategically-placed hedge ⁄ tree plantings. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... Speaking of plantings, soft landscaping elements are the crowning touch to our projects. And, while not glamorous, grading and drainage are vital considerations in any landscape construction project.. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... Exterior lighting can add drama and elegance, while, more importantly, ensuring that your family and guests can easily navigate your steps and walkways after twilight. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... In terms of swimming pools … on the one hand, we design landscapes that maximize our clients’ enjoyment of their pool oases, and, on the other hand, we fill in pools no longer wanted by clients for a variety of reasons. .....................................................................................................................................................................................
