NEW FRONT STEPS/WALKWAY ALONG DRIVE WAY/RETAINING WALL FOR DRIVEWAY/ WALKWAY ON SIDE OF HOUSE

The front steps are wonderful and exactly the way I wanted them. Easy to manage for a senior. Thank you Angelo for your advice - you were right. I love my front entrance and it has already proven itself this winter. The retaining wall was also a good idea and the walkway from the backyard to the front is easy to manage. All Pro Landscaping has done an excellent job in my backyard several years ago and has proven itself again this time. I highly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for durable and exact work done in a timely manner. Thank you Angelo for all your help and your drawings, suggestions and recommendations, they were excellent, to the point and bringing satisfaction. Many, many Thanks..

Dear Mrs. H., Thank-you for reaching out to us again last year to help you with your new project. Yes, I recall that your front steps were of particular concern for you. It can sometimes be a bit difficult for folks to visualize the solution for a problem area. I have the benefit of 35 years of professional experience in landscape construction design which I am always happy to share with my clients! It was a pleasure to work with you again. Many, many thanks for taking the time to share this review of our work last year and more than 15 years ago! All the best, Angelo

Landscape

After living in our backyard for 18 years, we finally decided it was time to do some landscaping and create a relaxing space to unwind. We had a vision for the yard and Angelo and his team were able to bring it to life. It was a huge project, complete with a ramped walkway, spa area, flower gardens and an amazing water feature.
Throughout the planning process, which included numerous revisions and additions, not to mention the rainiest spring of all time, Angelo problem solved, issued sound advice and ultimately created our backyard oasis!
Thank you, Angelo, for your patience, planning and your attention to detail! We are thrilled with the result!

Company Response

It was a delight to work with you and your family to bring your vision to life. You already had a beautiful backyard space, complete with vegetable and flower gardens. Our goal was to enhance your family’s access to and enjoyment of that space. As in all projects, communication and clarity are absolutely essential — from initial consultation to quoting, planning, revisions, materials selection, excavation, installation, and final touches. For large projects such as yours, this becomes even more critical at every stage. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your reflections on the process and the final result! Wishing you many, many happy years of relaxation and enjoyment! All the best, Angelo

Back yard grading and retaining wall

Angelo graded and leveled out a layer of "A" gravel in the backyard after a pool fill-in. A 35' long block retaining wall was installed along one side of the property (with proper drainage). The advice that Angelo gave was most helpful and beneficial in planning the eventual layout of the yard. As a tradesman myself I can appreciate the work and attention to detail that went into this project.

Thank you, Larry, for sharing this thoughtful assessment of our work for you this fall! The weather certainly worked against us, turning your backyard into a giant mud pit and then plunging us into a very early winter, but our team persevered through it all, and we were able to finish the project for you! Looking forward to helping you in the spring with the next phase that we discussed. Bye for now, Angelo

Interlocking, Grading and Sod

We initially chose All Pro Landscaping & Carpentry based on the many great reviews and pictures of their work and we couldn’t have been happier with the results!

It was 25 years ago since our front yard was landscaped so it was in desperate need of some TLC. This project included interlocking stone (a raised walkout area and steps down to pathway) along with regrading and laying new sod.

After our first meeting with Angelo we were confident that we would get the look we were after and based on his description of the work process it was apparent there would be no compromise on quality – We were not disappointed. Angelo’s landscape design and installation looks wonderful, something we will enjoy and be proud of for many years to come.

I have no hesitation recommending All Pro Landscaping & Carpentry. These guys are real professionals who take pride in their work. Thank You Angelo.

Front and backyard landscaping

We enjoyed working with Angelo and his team very much. They were professional throughout the entire process. Angelo is very knowledgeable and we would work with this company again on future projects. To All-Pro Landscaping: Thank you for our beautiful yards.

Hello Stacy. Many thanks for mentioning the professionalism of the ALL-PRO Landscaping team. It was an extensive project that encircled your home, including the backyard patio; a 60-foot retaining wall; multiple walkways, steps, garden borders and window wells; and 3,000-plus square feet of lawn regrading and sod installation. We also enjoyed working with you and your family, and truly appreciate your recommendation to the HomeStars.com community. All the best, Angelo

New natural stone steps, front and side walkways, soldier course driveway and regrading of garden and lawn.

The front entrance and steps to our home had seen better days, they had become an eyesore and were crumbling.

We contacted 3 contractors to quote on a solution. Angelo was the only contractor that gave me a sense of confidence in his construction knowledge and his capacity to fix the problem to last. His description was clear on what needed to be done to repair the damage and to beautify the entrance to our home for years to come. I said yes and Angelo and his team came through 100%.

The project started with a complete demolition of old steps, walkways, driveway timbers, shrubs and a necessary regrading of the lawn. This was a big job but it was done quickly, cleanly and professionally before the new construction could begin. The construction took a number of days between rain days but once done the new steps are beautiful and rock solid (no pun intended). The front and side walkways blend perfectly into a soldier course of stones lining a new asphalt driveway. Angelo and his team did a remarkable job and I will not hesitate to recommend him to friends and family, if they are looking for a professional landscape construction contractor. Well done All Pro!

Paving Patio Stone Installation

I believe that the quality of the people you work with on a project are as important as the quality of the work being done. Angelo and his team provided both. This work was done on the last week of July, in sweltering heat but they just worked on with no complaints. We were very pleased, thanks Angelo and All Pro Landscaping.

Your thoughtful sentiments are very much appreciated; I will be sure to share them with the ALL-PRO Landscaping team. We do our best to keep projects moving at times of extreme heat, but crew health must always be our primary consideration. It's a very careful balance. Wonderful to hear that you have been enjoying your new backyard patio and walkway! Many thanks, and all the best, Angelo

Backyard patio

We undertook a major backyard patio landscaping job this spring and hired Angelo and team again because we knew they were the right people for the job. They delivered an amazing backyard patio that wraps around our house to make an amazing outdoor entertainment area.

Hello Kyle! We were happy to return to your home this year to construct phase two of the landscape transformation at your home. I encourage HomeStars readers to scan the previous review which you posted on Nov. 26, 2018 regarding our phase one project to redesign the front and side areas of your property last summer: (https://homestars.com/companies/2783386-all-pro-landscaping-carpentry-ltd/reviews/710760). Since your entire property has now been renewed, it may be quite some time before we see you again. There is nothing left to do but for you to enjoy! Many thanks for reviewing this second project! All the best, Angelo

Repair and relay Backyard Patio & Relay 6-car driveway interlock plus add soil & sod to remedy property grade

Angelo at AllPro was excellent- in his explanations to build the quote; in his scheduling to meet my deliverables date; in the care that the crew took to execute the work; and, in post-project support to confirm my satisfaction and to aid me on how to remove an automotive fluid stain that happened a couple months after the project was completed.
Could not have been better!

Thank-you ever so much for sharing your experiences at the various stages of the project process, from our initial consultation meeting in late April through to addressing the stain left by the taxi on your driveway pavers in the summer. It was great working with you throughout. All the best, Angelo

Top notch in all regards

During the summer of 2017 I had the pleasure of doing business with Angelo and his crew, for the installation of a two-level deck surpassing 500 sq ft. Before writing reviews it is my practice to see how a project holds up over time.

I am here today to (unsurprisingly) proclaim that we are as ecstatic with the results today as we were back in 2017, and in every regard the work done by Angelo and the team have met and exceeded our expectations. We were especially pleased that Angelo and the team happily handled all my in-progress alteration requests and design suggestions/idiosyncrasies. All in all a complete pleasure to work with and an outstanding final product.

I can wholeheartedly recommend All-Pro Landscaping, and in fact intend to book All-Pro this spring for additional landscaping to the rear yard, as well as nuch needed interlock stone and retaining wall repair.

Hello Randy. Thank you for your enthusiastic and detailed testamonial! Your insights are all-the-more valuable to HomeStars readers because our work has already withstood two Canadian winters. I was happy to be able to implement your in-progress ideas; luckily, they came at opportune moments so no additional costs were involved! I am looking forward to getting together with you to discuss your ideas for the backyard! Bye for now, Angelo

SERVICE AREA . . .
With our office in Highland Creek near the Scarborough-Pickering border, and our yard situated in north Ajax, we concentrate on projects located in the EAST/SOUTHEAST NEIGHBOURHOODS OF SCARBOROUGH (Highland Creek, Rouge Hill, West Rouge, Port Union, Guildwood) AND EASTWARD INTO PICKERING, AJAX & WHITBY. This holds true particularly in the spring. Later in the season (after July), we may take on projects in Oshawa or, possibly, Courtice, for example. (PLEASE CLICK ON THE THUMBNAIL IMAGE OF OUR CORE SERVICE AREA MAP IN THE PHOTOS SECTION OF THIS PAGE.)
...........
OVER THE PAST 35 YEARS . . .
Over the past 35 years, ALL-PRO Landscaping & Carpentry Ltd. has been designing and constructing beautiful, functional custom landscapes for more than a thousand clients who have entrusted Angelo Tersigni and his landscape construction team with their outdoor living spaces and home curb appeal.
...........
ABOUT US . . .
FOUNDED IN 1985 BY NICOLA TERSIGNI AND 21-YEAR-OLD SON ANGELO, ALL-PRO Landscaping & Carpentry Ltd. specializes in working with clients to enhance the beauty and functionality of the landscape elements that complement and add to the enjoyment of their homes.
> As sole owner and operator for the past 32 years, Angelo continues to honour the family values of integrity and pride of workmanship that are at the very heart of ALL-PRO Landscaping & Carpentry Ltd.; the company he founded with his father 35 years ago. Those values have stood the test of time and continue to translate into satisfied clients. And we are honoured that ALL-PRO is now being called upon by the next generation of our client families to help them with their projects. Angelo personally oversees each project from start to finish.
> About 60 PER CENT of our business each year originates from client referrals (not including HomeStars leads) and from clients who come back to us with ideas for new projects — a testament to our excellence in landscape design and construction services.
...........
A FEW NOTES ABOUT QUOTATIONS . . .
On average, ALL-PRO Landscaping has the capacity to commit to approximately 30 to 40 CLIENT PROJECTS EACH YEAR. During the peak spring/summer period, we receive approximately 20 to 30 quotation requests PER WEEK, sometimes more — but many of these are outside our service area, or, occasionally, some have been too small for us to be able to take on, given the team of landscape construction employees and fleet of equipment that we must support.
.
Angelo personally handles quoting and sales. Hours of work are invested in a typical quotation. Angelo's hand-rendered to-scale drawing of the project design footprint, calculations and shorthand notes are what he requires to develop a quotation price. However, rather than providing homeowners with a bulk dollar amount for the entire project, he goes the extra mile by presenting a detailed, typed "contract specification sheet" that breaks the entire project into individual components — each one defined by price, material specifications and dimensions. It includes warranty, applicable taxes, payment terms and approximate start date range. Ultimately, for homeowners who choose to entrust their project to ALL-PRO Landscaping & Carpentry, this quotation document becomes the signed client contract (usually with some revisions beforehand due to client changes to the project parameters). (Projects of a certain scope and complexity may, of course, also require architectural drawings.)
.
When homeowners reach out to ALL-PRO Landscaping to request a quotation, we are very grateful.
> We also respect their time and want to ensure that we are a good fit for their projects. So our office staff will ask some initial questions before including inquiries on Angelo’s quotation call-back list . . .
.
Q1. WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
Each year, we receive, and must decline, more than a hundred quotation requests from homeowners located outside our service area. (Please refer to the “Service Area” note, above.) However, for our previous clients, we make every effort to accommodate their request.
.
Q2. WHAT IS YOUR PROJECT COMPLETION TARGET DATE?
Some homeowners are working towards a particular project deadline, while others have no target date. This is important for us to know up front, because:
> Our current roster of scheduled projects may make it impossible for us to take on a prospective project requiring delivery within the homeowner's specified time frame.
> At times, Angelo may temporarily suspend quoting. When we are fully booked into September, Angelo stops quoting so that he can focus exclusively on current projects and clients, until he re-opens quoting in mid-August or early September.
In this scenario, our office staff compiles a waiting list of those homeowners who wish to meet with Angelo when he begins quoting again, or we invite them to reach out to us again at a later date.
.
Q3. HOW MANY QUOTATIONS ARE YOU OBTAINING?
We respect and understand the need for homeowners to obtain multiple quotations. Conventional wisdom usually concurs that two or three quotations is prudent (possibly even four), if homeowners do not yet have an established relationship with a trusted contractor.

We respectfully decline to meet with homeowners who are obtaining more than three quotations.
.
Q4. WHAT IS THE SCOPE OF YOUR PROJECT?
The HomeStars company PROFILE format includes a field for “PROJECT MINIMUM”. We have set $5,000 as the minimum.
> HOWEVER, for our previous clients, of course we are glad to come back to help with any landscape construction job, no matter how small.
> For non-client quotation requests, we are, regrettably, unable to take on small projects, given the team of landscape construction employees and fleet of equipment that we must support.
> We appreciate that some homeowners may be unable to gauge whether or not their project would be above the $5,000 minimum threshold. We might be able to help during your initial call when you describe the kind of work you would like to have done.
.
MEETING WITH ANGELO . . .
Angelo's QUOTATION CALL-BACK LIST is updated by office staff. On that spreadsheet, each request is tracked by initial date of inquiry.
> CALL-BACK TIMEFRAME: During the construction season, Angelo strives to touch base with homeowners within two weeks of the date of their initial inquiry logged on the Quotation Call-Back List (unless he had already placed a temporary hold on quoting before the inquiry was received).
> MEETING TIMEFRAME: During the construction season, Angelo does his best to integrate quotation meetings into his existing project work schedule. Client projects always take priority for him — which both current and prospective clients are sure to appreciate. During the offseason from approx. December through March, Angelo does quite a bit of quoting for the upcoming season, weather permitting.

During the peak season, Angelo usually works from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days per week in order to combine jobsite work with sales, scheduling, purchasing, transportation, HR, client relations and other functions. He is at the jobsites daily. Multiple projects are usually under way. Clients deal with Angelo directly on anything pertaining to their projects. He manages the project schedule, calculates and places the orders for project materials and determines crew member assignments each day. His Class AR driver's licence also enables him to minimize production disruptions by serving as the supply lifeline for the jobsites: delivering materials from manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers (paving stones, flagstone, wall systems, boulders, rockery, gravel, screenings, lumber, fencing, topsoil, sod, plant material, etc.), transporting equipment and materials between jobsites and the company's yard in north Ajax, and hauling project debris from the jobsites to the yard or transfer stations. He integrates quotations into this schedule.

SERVICES
We specialize in gently curving walkway, patio and retaining wall footprints and terraced patios and semi-circular steps, all of which require intricate masonry cutting. We help our clients "make a dramatic entrance" — for their homes, that is. We can, for example, transform a builders’ plain concrete front porch and threshold with beautiful square-cut flagstone or interlocking pavers. We can soften the lines of an asphalt driveway by framing it with an arc-shaped "cape" of pavers that extends across the front of the garage and down the edges of the asphalt area; or, we can install pavers throughout. ................................................................................................................................................................................... We use quality materials, both manufactured and natural. We design our clients’ hard landscape elements with pre-cast concrete interlocking pavers and wall stones, and with Natural Stone products such as flagstone and steps from Kawartha Rock Quarry, Silver Valley or elsewhere. And, of course, we install Armour Stone, Washed River Rock and assorted sizes of rockery accents from various sources. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... Our clients can choose from cedar, pressure-treated lumber or TrexTM composite decking or opt for a raised stone patio-terrace instead of a deck for their back yard living and entertaining spaces. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... For perimeter fencing and privacy screening, our clients have the option of cedar, pressure-treated lumber, composite fence materials, wrought iron or strategically-placed hedge ⁄ tree plantings. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... Speaking of plantings, soft landscaping elements are the crowning touch to our projects. And, while not glamorous, grading and drainage are vital considerations in any landscape construction project.. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... Exterior lighting can add drama and elegance, while, more importantly, ensuring that your family and guests can easily navigate your steps and walkways after twilight. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... In terms of swimming pools … on the one hand, we design landscapes that maximize our clients’ enjoyment of their pool oases, and, on the other hand, we fill in pools no longer wanted by clients for a variety of reasons. .....................................................................................................................................................................................
