Rejuvenate old yard

Our small backyard was the victim of a large,rambunctious puppy (He's now grown up and calmed down!). We had a modest budget, and Assiniboine far exceeded our expectations! Everyone -the office staff, estimator, project manager, and crew - was curtious and professional. The crew made sure to check with us before moving/replacing plants, and positioning the new tree and garden stones. We couldn't be happier with our choice of landscaper!

Backyard patio transformation

Second time using Assiniboine, had Anka and his crew out to a townhouse we purchased to completely remove old pavers and debris and install paver patio, cedar wall, cedar window cover and steps. Excellent job was done on all aspects, his crew was always working long hard hours and finished the job in record time. The installation of the paving stones was the best job we have ever seen with excellent care and precision. The job site was tough as its a fully enclosed back patio with no machine access and the job site had to be kept clean with no materials left in the back alleyway at all times. Every day the crew would clean up everything and keep noise and mess to a minimum for the
neighbours. Anka and his foreman always had excellent suggestions with regard to materials selection and how to execute items such as enclosing the gaps to keep pets from escaping under the fence, and fix drainage issues in back corner. We couldnt be happier with this job and wouldnt not hesitate to use Assiniboine again. Photos show before and after

Backyard Renovation: Remove grass, cut small tree, trim shrubs, walkway, patio and vegetable garden

I contacted Assiniboine to renovate a section of my 3-tier backyard by removing a small tree, trimming 2 shrubs, removing grass to create a walkway, a large patio and vegetable gardens. The estimator came a week later and I gave him a fixed budget to work with. He came back promptly to suggest a 25' stone walkway, a 15' x 14' patio and 2 vegetable garden areas of 10' x 4' each. He even suggested using the existing paver stones in my yard to use with new bricks for the vegetable garden border to save cost, which I thought was a great idea.

Within a week, the project manager Anka contacted me and discussed about my likes and dislikes, etc. He was able to arrange for his crew to start 3 days before the original scheduled date. On Friday, the day of construction, the crew worked tirelessly ripping up the grass by hand (because my backyard is inaccessible to machineries). Within a day, they were able to prep the area to start laying the bricks the following day. These men worked long hours through the weekend, and during that time we made some minor changes to the design and those guys were very accommodating. In the end, some of the changes resulted in less bricks used and a pallet of bricks was returned to their supplier.

The only unfortunate thing was that this wasn't communicated properly back to their HQ and when the project was completed, I was charged extra for bricks that were not used. However, the company was able to verify this situation quickly with the project manager and the revised charges were then waived without any issue. By Monday, the work was done to my satisfaction.

To be clear, they are not the cheapest landscaper if you shop around. But if you want quality work and a landscaper who sticks to the budget, then Assiniboine is worthy of consideration. Plus, they provide 2 year limited hardscape warranty pertaining to workmanship defects, which I hope I won't have to use!

Beautiful Deck

I hired Assiniboine Lights and Landscapes to build a deck at the front of my home. The experience was positive from initial contact to completion of the project. All staff were professional friendly and courteous at all times. Originally when I accepted the estimate work was scheduled to begin on September 20. Anka, the project manager came to the house to review the estimate with me shortly after I accepted it. Anka had his crew start the job as soon as materials were available from the vendor. Everything was completed by September 10! The crew worked long hours every day even though the long weekend. All work was top notch. No corners were cut and the deck looks great. I’m sure it will add value to my home and I will enjoy it for many years. I would hire Assiniboine again and highly recommend them. 10 out of 10.

Landscaping - Hardscape

Assiniboine did a great job on my corner lot landscape. Looks fabulous. Communication was great, and they arrived on site, worked straight through for a couple of days until the job was finished. Left site clean and tidy. Very happy.

Front yard landscaping

My project required the clearing of about 3000 sq ft in my front yard and the planting of Juniper bushes after installing a cloth weed barrier and finishing the surface with rundle rock. The company surprised me by coming 2 weeks earlier than promised and finished the project in one day on budget. When the workmen finished the yard looked great. I could not ask for any better.

Front patio

A front yard area was designed with patio stone and lined with tall grasses for privacy. It's perfect for sitting out with a morning coffee. I have received many compliments!
I will definitely hire Assiniboine in future; thank you for the fine work.

Patio paver circle w/polysand, mow trim pavers, new deck stairs, tree wells

These were the main jobs done, however there were also smaller jobs involved like levelling pathway flagstones, digging out tree roots encroaching on lawn & sodding areas, etc. This was a huge refresh of the backyard (and the front yard as well) and I must say I am so impressed. Kris, Levi, Nick and all the team were wonderful to work with. They were very knowledgeable, communicative, responsive and were able to provide creative solutions and recommendations to issues while making sure the resolution was exactly what I wanted. The quality of work was amazing and I really appreciated their attention to every little detail. I am very pleased with how great the backyard and front yard turned out. I would gladly recommend them and in fact I plan to have them back next year to do some additional projects.
