They were beyond professional. They listened and found a way to deliver my ideas within my budget. Their workmanship was excellent and they found their own flaws and fixed them. They always left the site clean and tidy at the end of their shift. If more work need to be done they will be the first ones I call without a second thought.
I highly recommend them you won’t be disappointed

Quick and fussy-the lites look great
The job was complex and would have been dangerous for an amateur to attempt

My project was a bit delayed to start, but when they began the work you could immediately tell they were organized and efficient enough to get the job done right. Kris and his team took our little dirt patch (on a zero-lot line property) and created a beautiful, well designed outdoor living space that was better than we could have expected. They completed my fence, front lawn sod, paving stone patio and additional gravel/mulch edges all within an impressive timeframe. The quality of their work was to be admired and has already received lots of high praise from friends and family. Thank you Kris and the team at Assiniboine for the great work.

I have had problems with this retaining wall ever since it was installed 20 years ago. Asssiniboine tore the wall down and reset putting in more drainage and replacing dirt with sand and stone to improve drainage. The company did such a good job the wall and overall landscaping is better than when it was originally installed. I am very pleased with the job and would be pleased to recommend Assiniboine for any landscaping needs. They know what they are doing

Assiniboine has provided yard maintenance services for our yard for the past 5-6 years including spring and fall cleanups. They have been reliable and have done good work, plus their crews are always friendly and responsive to requests.
I would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and neighbors.

Assiniboine completed paving stone patios, pathways, ironstone wall on one side of our acreage as well as an extension of our upper deck. All I can say is WOW!!! It is beautiful. My 3 year old now plays and rides her bike around on the paving stones and has fresh new grass to run through the sprinkler. The new design also eliminates the majority of the mosquitos. They suggested a spot for our trampoline with fabric and gravel below to create a maintenance free area and it is fantastic. Can't wait to get rest of the yard completed when the budget allows. Thanks Assiniboine!!!! Your crew cam through and were superb. Professionalism at its best!!!

I had my yard landscaped 3 years ago. I now have to have my deck rebuilt. They had no idea how to build a deck properly. They have even stored all the left over wood and soil and rocks under my deck. So frustrating. I can google how to build a deck better than Assiniboine. I would never recommend this company. Boards are falling off, the stairs are uneven. It's not waterproofed properly under the deck. A real NIGHTMARE.

Linda,

Super sorry you feel this way!! I have tried a few times to get a hold of you but no answer... We understand that you have some water leaking into your basement. As I'm sure you are aware, the flashing and ledgerboard was installed by your builder prior to our arrival, so I'm not sure how we could have caused that issue. I totally understand that you very angry, but I assume if you did think we caused it, we would have heard about it prior to this and this would be an insurance claim.

Since we built your beautiful yard over 3.5 years ago we have served over 4500 clients and haven't had any other online complaints or issues we weren't able to resolve amicably. In fact, we are very grateful, flattered and proud of the reviews on homestars, which is proof that we have the integrity to deliver on our promises and take pride in our work! Our goal is to make every client so stoked they become an Assiniboine ambassador!

We can meet with you and your builder to address the issue together anytime? We understand you are under a lot of stress, we are here to minimize stress!! Not enhance it!! Let us know if there is anyway we can help!! Your deck and landscape still look amazing! Contact us anytime to discuss further and figure things out!

We had them take out three areas of grass. One was made into a lovely patio seating area, another a rock based landscape with play equipment, and the other a dry river bed and meditation area. The fence was also redone as well as putting in a French drain under the river bed to reuse rain water off the roof. They also put in a trench and grate along the garage to correct a problem we had previously with water getting into the garage. Miguel, John, and Kris were very dedicated, hardworking and conscientious indivuals who listened to our concerns and needs. They brought the picture in our heads to life.

We were having serious problems with drainage in our side yard and back patio. Assiniboine assessed the issue then developed an effective and attractive solution which involved leveling and resurfacing the area, adding an attractive retaining wall and installing a paving stone pathway and patio. The project was well managed from our first consultation until completion. All of our questions were answered promptly and adjustments during the construction process were handled smoothly. The on-site crew were courteous and able to provide creative solutions to some of our long-standing challenges. We could not be happier with the results, and we highly recommend this company. They are professional, proficient, experienced and competent. We are 100% satisfied that our money was well spent by engaging this company.

Workers we on time every morning and worked steady all day. They stayed on their schedule and finished the day they had forecast (even though we had a little weather causing some issues). We are pleased with the final product and the clean-up of the yard and driveway. There quote was not the cheapest nor was it the most expensive. The professionalism of the person that quoted us was the tipping point. He was knowledgeable and did not promise the world. He was honest with the issues we would face and the challenges of the job (unlike others that played the work down). He did not hold any punches and was right on the mark with the estimate and the challenges.

We would not hesitate hiring them again.

Thank you for the very thoughtful and detailed review Paul! It is great to get such good feedback on, not only the final product, but also the estimator and the overall process. The retaining wall turned out fantastic and really transforms the backyard. We hope to work with you again in the near future!
