Amazing front yard & parking pad buildout

What a life saver! It turns out that the house I bought did not have a legal City of Toronto parking spot. To make matters even worse, we had a medium sized tree (and associated tree protection zone) that made it almost impossible to carve out a compliant parking spot. Peter and his team were able to guide us through the process of getting the right paperwork in front of the right city departments (Urban Forestry, Parking Enforcement, and more), and came up with a beautiful landscaping plan that respected the TPZ and satisfied all of the city's other requirements as well.
Would highly recommend as a landscaper in general, and can't imagine anyone better if you're trying to work within City of Toronto restrictions to get parking approved (in the wards where it is legal).

Thank you, Shamir, for taking the time to place this great review! Getting approval for your particular parking pad was definitely the most difficult one that we had to navigate in over 25 years of getting front yard parking permits for clients but the satisfaction of succeeding was also greater. Enjoy the new front yard makeover and your new legal parking pad.

Front yard, porch and walkway overhaul

Excellent work and professional design. Peter, Frederik and the crew at Green Apple were a pleasure to deal with. They completely overhauled our front yard with a new walkway and steps, retaining wall and a new front porch. Peter kept us up to date on progress and any necessary design changes, is extremely knowledgeable and always available for any questions. We would gladly work with them again.

Parking pad and walkway

Peter and his team were very professional in designing and installing their pad and walkway design. They were provided more value for money when compared to other estimates and their recommended materials exceeded the specs of their comparables. Overall very satisfied with their work.

Full Property Makeover

Green Apple Landscaping consists of a small team of people who care, are passionate, are conscientious, believe in customer satisfaction, confidently operate specialized equipment and machinery, and demonstrate daily that they take pride in their work and workmanship.

From our initial investigative contact with Peter, to the measuring and design vision phase with Fred, and straight through to the construction and craftsmanship details executed by Victor, Simon, and GP, we were wowed! All of them are experienced and hardworking professionals. They kept our budget in mind, welcomed last-minute requests, were always available for on-site consultations and questions, and were meticulous and thorough.

The creation of a “10-years-in-our-home” “lands-iversary” (landscaping for our 10th anniversary in our home) was an important step for our satisfaction in it over the next ten years … and beyond, so it was a HUGE task with many minute and grandiose details needing equal attention. No problem for these guys!!

We trusted them to create a functional and visually attractive “home-scape” which consisted of complete front and backyard landscaping with lighting elements, new interlocking brick pathways and backyard patio, a new gazebo with insect/sun protection, partial yard enclosure with cedar fencing (including a sliding door for driveway access), extensive planting, readiness for an irrigation system, a new patch of sod, and the creation of a gorgeous brick and wood front-yard focal point demi-wall …. and the final result exceeded our expectations tenfold!!

Our results were on time, on budget, and on point!

Friends, neighbours, kids on their way to school, and even the odd passer-by will express their joy with our freshened-up yard, improved curb appeal, creative garden additions, and new entertaining spaces. As a family, we smile just looking at it, and beam being amongst the design elements. It’s fabulous!

Suffice to say, we are very confident in both the quality and the durability of the work and would highly recommend Green Apple Landscaping for ANY outdoor task given … they are THAT AWESOME!

Front yard parking pad

We hired Green Apple Landscaping to help us with the application process, design and construction of our front yard parking pad. Peter and his team were extremely professional and helpful in navigating the entire process. The project was completed on time and within the budget. We were thoroughly impressed with the quality of work but also the level of communication. It is hard to find a company as responsive and professional as Green Apple. Would highly recommend them for any landscaping project.

Front yard landscaping

The goal was to replace the retaining wall while protecting a very large tree and create new walkway and front porch. Everything was done very professionally from the design and city permit acquisition to the on site work. The crew were a pleasure to work with and were very professional and easy to communicate with. The project came in on time and on budget and the results are outstanding

The Best

Our experience with Green Apple Landscaping could not have been better. They were worth every penny and would not hesitate to use or recommend them for any landscaping construction project.

Our project was to build a parking pad on a detached house in The Beaches. There is a lot of red tape to get a permit from the city to do this and Peter and his team are experts at helping you through this process. After having gone through all the steps, I think there is a good chance we would have failed at some point along the way if we had selected a cheaper landscape contractor. So, for this alone they are worth selecting but in addition Green Apple Landscaping is:

- Responsive and easy to work with: Peter is a contractor that will actually answer/return your calls and emails.

- Knowledgeable: They are experts who will take the time to answer your questions until you are satisfied. And I had a lot of questions. They know which materials are best for your job and how to overcome the obstacles during the build.

- Designer with no ego: His talented designer Fred was a dream to work with. We made a lot of comments that he incorporated into the design before and even during the build and not only did he accommodate us, he did it with pleasure which allowed the project to be the best that it could be (for us).

- Flexible & Cooperative: When issues came up during the build, they were flexible and offered alternative solutions to choose from.

- Build quality SECOND TO NONE: the build team are not some random workers. These guys are highly skilled artists.

- Honest: They were 100% true to their estimate and not once did we get that slimy feeling you get when you think your contractor is taking advantage of you.

- Proven track record: Their body of work speaks volumes.

The end result is simply perfection given the space they had to work with. I understand why Green Apple Landscaping gives such a strong guarantee on their work. Because it costs them nothing since they build it perfect the first time.
The improvement to the front of our property is night and day. Even neighbors that were opposed to us building a parking pad are in awe of the final result which will only look better as the plants grow to full size.

We have taken the time to write out this review because we are grateful to Green Apple Landscapers for both the finished product as well as their disposition throughout.

Landscape Design and Installation

Green Apple Landscaping did a terrific job. We bought a house that didn't have any landscaping done to it and Peter's designer designed a truly backyard oasis and front yard showcase for us. They designed a wood screening on one side on the yard and huge beech tree screening on the other with cedars around the fenced perimeter. They also designed/installed gardens with unique plants and trees that I've never seen before and installed a huge patio with different designs that matched our existing stairs. They also designed our front garden with tall ornamental grasses, trees and plants. Peter also designed automatically timed garden lighting for both our front and backyards, that showcases our house and which we and our neighbours love. The quality of work of Peter's crew were professional, experienced and did outstanding work. They also installed concrete pads for a fountain and other designed garden features. The crew never left the job until all the work was completed and I would certainly recommend Green Apple Landscaping.

Small Backyard Oasis

We were very pleased with Green Apple from start to finish. They listened to our needs and style preferences, translated them into a design that was perfect for us, and delivered with excellence. Working from home, I can definitely attest every step was done methodically and properly. We feel very confident in the quality and durability of the work. And of course, it’s beautiful. Their team was professional, hard working, and courteous - even our neighbours remarked on this! Even with a couple unexpected issues, Peter and his team were quick to resolve. Thanks Peter and team for a beautiful backyard space we’ll enjoy for years to come! I definitely recommend Green Apple.

Parking Pad - Front Yard Landscaping

We applied for and received a permit for front yard parking but we needed a landscape company to do the design and install.

We interviewed other companies but reached out to Green Apple after seeing their landscaping pics and online reviews.

Peter was responsive and thoughtful in listening to our ideas and addressing our questions and concerns. The designer (Fred) created a beautiful design that incorporated our vision with Green Apple's landscaping expertise.

Green Apple uses advanced specialized heavy lifting equipment and the crew; Victor-Simon-GP-Conrad are all experienced, hardworking professionals. The craftsmanship and attention to detail demonstrate that they care and take pride in their work. And it shows in the end result. We have received many compliments on the makeover from our neighbors, passersby, friends and family.

Suffice to say we could not be more satisfied and it is without hesitation that we recommend Green Apple for your landscaping project. You will not be disappointed!!
