Backyard landscaping

Dave and his team at Assiniboine did a great job transforming our back yard to a more useable space. We had some scope change through the project and Dave was responsive and able to accommodate quickly and flexibily. Despite short schedule set backs due to weather and other projects, the work was completed without significant breaks in the schedule. Thank you Assiniboine!

Enclosed garden with pergola

Anka and his crew from Assinaboine did an amazing job on the construction of our enclosed garden. They were efficient, professional and cleaned up after themselves. We can’t wait to plant our garden next spring! Thank you so much! The Gunning’s

Landscaping project

Very nice work done around the trees in the garden and along the drive way. Also some brick work in the garden at the rear of the house was done to extend the flower beds and make it look a lot better. A dry well was also dug so that my sump pump water discharge would be better distributed underground. All-in-all I am quite pleased with the results.

paving stones and garden bed renewal

After obtaining competitive quotes, we hired Assiniboine to reset some the paving stones that were lifting in our walkway, extend the area covered by paving stones at the side of the house (essentially double the area covered and figure out how to aesthetically incorporate the existing pattern into a new one), set new paving stones in 3 other areas, remove all the extra sand, gravel and cement left after the cement curbing was installed by another company, and fill the garden beds with proper soil after we removed all the "decorative" rock (16 cubic yards of it) . Regan was a one man show and completed all the hard and detailed work. He did not blow in the new soil. He did an especially amazing job on all areas requiring new paving stones. The work he did and the patterns he created are works of art, even in the small areas. He clearly thought out patterns that would be most appealing. He was neat throughout the job and cleaned up after himself very day. We are extremely pleased with his finished work. I had never heard of blowing in soil before. It was certainly efficient.

Front Yard Flower Bed

Anka and his crew did an excellent job adding a large, stacked stone flower bed in our front yard. They arrived on time, finished as scheduled, and left the yard cleaner then before they started work. The final price was exactly as quoted. They exhibited a great attention to detail, even managing to incorporate an existing bolder into the stone wall as requested. We will confidently ha e them back for future landscaping projects.

An excellent job laying out our patio. Reasonable pricing and a very professional and hard-working team of personnel.

BRUTAL CUSTOMER SERVICE

So expensive and ZERO customer service. Something goes wrong within 1 year, 180$ charge to come look at it. Hardware malfunctions, “sorry we are so busy we can’t help you.” I don’t recommend using this company at all. I don’t mind paying top dollar for a company or service that stands behind their work or product. Assiniboine does neither.

We appreciate your candid feedback. As we have already discussed, Christmas lights are not meant to be left up on a year round basis and we recommend that our clients take them down after each Christmas season. The reasoning behind our recommendation is due to the nature of the product and Calgary's harsh climate. We are very transparent with this recommendation as it is posted on our website, our invoices, and we also send out reminder emails to our clients that explicitly state why you should remove your lights on a yearly basis. With that being said, many of our clients choose to leave them up, which is completely understandable as you may want to enjoy them year round, however there may be upkeep costs that go along with that decision. We are sorry that you view this as terrible customer service and we would kindly ask that you refrain from incorrectly quoting us as we have never said, “sorry we are so busy we can’t help you". It is currently outside of the Christmas light season and therefore we do not have crews available at a moment's notice.

Backyard reno

The guys were very friendly, professional. Everyday, after they were done for the day, they would tidy up and put things away. Always eager to please and ok when we decided on changes. They offered suggestions on little details that we hadn’t thought of that were great! Things came together better than we imagined

Thank you, we really appreciate you taking the time to submit a review! The crews all take great pride in their work and their attention to detail on the small things is what we believe can really take a project to the next level. Hope you enjoy the last few days of Summer in that new backyard!
