We moved into a big house with a fenced in backyard with a dream of the kids playing in the backyard.... then we learned that something(s) lived under the deck and the backyard was graded incorrectly and flooded the basement and was swampy in portions. In came Burl-Oak to the rescue - they removed the deck, dug down to our footings and waterproofed a whole wall of the house, regraded the whole backyard, put in a beautiful new lawn and a wonderful interlock patio and walkway. Now its a dream come true!

They even added a few surprise perks like graduated steps from our garage entrance to the walkway after seeing our toddler/pre-schooler climb the existing big step, and adjusting the backyard gate which had become off-kilter and never really opened/closed smoothly. So now we can actually access our new space safely and with ease!

With our 2 little ones home to "oversee" the project out the patio door/windows - every worker who came was on their best behaviour. No complaints about new bad words, bad behaviours, etc based on the monkey-see/monkey-do stage our kids are in! Everyone was professional, courteous and great to work with. We had a wonderful experience with Mark and Louay and will call them again when its time for our next project!

We found Burl-Oak via Homestars for a driveway renewal and front-porch redo. They were third on the list to call. Only Burl-Oak called back. The first two Homestars "top-rated" reviews talked to us like they were doing us a favour. Their loss.

Mark was on the ball from the start! Promtly called back. Excellent customer experience. Mark was efficient, detailed, precise, friendly, and forthcoming. Managed all expectations. Beth was very polite, and efficient with excellent follow up. And the workmanship of the team in removing, leveling, resurfacing, relaying the new stones is to be seen to be believed. Excellent project management and delivery.

The new driveway is like night and day. It is the neighbours envy on the street. Even slows down the traffic when the cars race to beat the lights. Even the Rinox representative visited the finished product to take photos and assess the workmanship. A nice touch!

Thank you Mark at the entire team at Burl-Oak. Quality all around.

Highly recommended!

We contacted Burl-Oak Landscaping and Mark Shessel last winter to get a quote for our front walk and steps. We had met 5 other companies and Burl-Oak was last on our list.

Mark and Lou'ay Sulaiman gave us a great proposal and very competitive quote. When we did more research on the company's reputation and previous work we felt very confident in proceeding with them.

Lou'ay and his crew started and completed our front walk and stairs in April 2017.

We have waited until now to write this review because we wanted to see how the work would stand up over the summer and fall. We are very very happy with the quality of work, the team, the follow-up and the final product. The new front walk and stairs look like they belong to our house and have always been here, they did a fantastic job!

We highly recommend Burl-Oak Landscaping (www.burloaklandscaping.com) - and in the future we plan to hire them again. They are efficient, professional, on-time and deliver a high quality job on budget. They delivered what they promised and more.

Thank you for a great job from your very satisfied and happy clients in Port Credit.

Burloak Landscaping provided a very professional initial consultation for my project, including the names and addresses of several paving stone suppliers and some specific recommendations for selecting the best stone at a very reasonable price.

No suprises on scheduling of my project as Burloak kept me up to date on timing.

The Burloak team showed up on time and started working immediately.
They answered any and all of my questions in a professional manner and completed the re-grading and paving stone installation efficiently and accurately. I now have a beautiful new driveway. Great job and no regrets. Thanks Burloak !

The backyard of our house was a nightmare. Five different grades, a rotting deck, pond, maple trees out of control and drainage problem. We were looking to change this to a flat and easy to care for back living space that allowed for good drainage and privacy.
We recieved quotes from a few local landscaping companies, but really appreciated the up front, honest and risk management-type approach that Burl-oak took.

Mark, Lou-ay, Michael and the onsite crew were excellent, right from the responsiveness of the quote to the finishing of the job. In total this massive job took five working days (which was unbelieveable) and looks amazing. We would contract with Burl-oak again without hesitation.

I only have positive things to say about Burl-Oak Landscaping! The crew finished my backyard patio and side entrance patio in 1 day -
this includes excavating, electrical conduit trench, gravel leveling, rerouting my weeping tile, and patio stone install. I had quotes from other companies that suggested taking a week and manual shoveling. The process was seamless with Burl-Oak Landscaping and painless in working as efficiently as possible.

They had a team of 10 come in and get the job done efficiently.
There was a supervisor onsite and the owner was also present to ensure all my questions were answered and the job was done right. The crew was friendly, professional, all in uniform, and they were very accommodating to our requests.

I have to thank Lou'Ay, Michael, Mark and the entire crew for doing such a great job. There are many independent contractors willing to do the job at a cheap price, but you really need to hire a reputable company that know what they're doing and will stand behind their product. Seeing the amazing reviews from past customers made me feel confident in choosing this company and I don't regret it.

This is the second time we have hired Burl-Oak Landscaping and we are extremely pleased we did. Not only is their work beautiful but they are professional and efficient. The team kept us updated throughout and they were more than happy to answer our questions at any time.

This time around we just needed repair work to the existing interlock, steps and the flagstone grout. It was not a large project but it felt like our project was treated as equally important.

We have found our trusted go to Landscape team!

Thank you Beth, Tony and Lou’ay

Thank you for making our back deck more presentable and functional. We were impressed with the timely planning and completion of the work. The recommendations for materials/finish were appropriate. Your crew completed the work with minimal disruption to the property and cleaned up the site each day.
Thank you!

We are so happy with the quality and look of our new front walkway and garden. Burloak took the front of our home from 1974 to 2017. After demolishing and clearing away the old, unsightly concrete, then laying down a beautiful new walkway and garden, we can't take our eyes off how beautifully this project has affected our exterior curb appeal. The service and workmanship was outstanding, and a team was in & out of our location within 2 days! Highly recommended! Thanks Burloak.
