Reinstall a Retaining Wall That Was Severly Bowed

Our experience with Angelo and the crew from All Pro was excellent from start to finish. We required an existing retaining wall to be totally taken apart and redone from scratch. Also, to relay some stairs that were in rough shape. Price was competitive and It was clear they really knew what they were doing. I have every confidence that the wall will last for a very long time. The crew were always punctual, courteous skilled and hard-working. I would recommend All Pro without hesitation, and will definitely recommend them to our family and friends.

We greatly appreciate your kind review, and referrals to family and friends. Unfortunately, the retaining wall had originally been installed incorrectly, causing it to fail. Dismantling and rebuilding the wall was quite labour intensive, a definite challenge given its scale and situation. Glad to have been able to address this for you, as well as fixing your steps before the onset of winter’s snow and ice. All the best, Angelo

Side Entrance and Walkway and General Interlock Improvements

Angelo and his team are our "go-to company" for anything related to exterior landscaping and interlock. We have known him for years and are very happy with all of the projects he has completed. He is always able to meet any budget with affordable and attractive solutions. This recent project was the installation of a side walkway and improvements to our existing side entrance along with relaying part of our backyard patio installed by another company which was beginning to slope towards the house. The front steps (done by another company) were also collapsing so Angelo rebuilt them to look like new.

Dear Barbara. Thank you for taking the time to reflect on our various projects for you dating back to 2011! We are grateful and proud to have earned your trust as your “go-to company”. This is not something that we take lightly. We strive to live up to that reputation with each and every project for all of our ALL-PRO Landscaping clients. Again, many thanks! Angelo

Walkway and Retaining Wall

After having a front interlock patio installed a number of years ago, we wanted to tidy up the side of our house. All-Pro extended our front patio and walkway to the side of the house and into our back yard. They installed a lengthy retaining wall, a new gate separating the front and back yards and also addressed drainage issues. We knew Angelo to be reliable and honest and that he’d do the best possible job.

We didn’t ask any other companies for quotes as we’d used Angelo before and knew he would provide excellent service. In fact, our question to him on the Monday night resulted in a quote by the next day and the work started the following week, especially appreciated as we had visitors arriving from overseas.

Angelo and his team provide organized and seamless service. He runs a tight ship, and his staff are friendly and professional. They were waiting on the street prior to their daily start time of 7 a.m. Several neighbours stopped by to inquire about their work, and others commented on how tidy they were, sweeping the street at the end of each day and cleaning up over the weekend. Angelo dropped by regularly, sometimes several times a day, to check on the status of the job and ask what we thought of the progress that was being made.

We’re so pleased with the beautiful job that was done...All-Pro created extra space for us and integrated our front/back yards easily. We would definitely choose Angelo’s services again!

It was a pleasure to work with you this spring to expand our 2013 frontyard design, creating a harmonious treatment that wraps around the side of the house and into the backyard. Thank you so much for taking the time to review this new project! Given your tight timelines, I did everything in my power to try to have the project completed prior to the arrival of your overseas guests! So happy that it came together, despite the weather which is always unpredictable. For HomeStars readers, we posted 14 images of the 2013 project on our HomeStars PHOTO GALLERY page (https://homestars.com/companies/2783386-all-pro-landscaping-carpentry-ltd/media_galleries/11468321), thanks to the images you captured of that project. Once you have had a chance to decompress after the departure of your guests, perhaps my wife and I could drop by to photograph your transformed backyard and side areas so that we can create a new Project Tour for HomeStars visitors to enjoy. Thank you, again, for your detailed review of the ALL-PRO Landscaping team and the work that we do. Much appreciated. All the best, Angelo

Professional Landscaping

A few years back we decided to get some work done. After all the quotes, we decided to go with All-pro. Angelo was a pleasure to work with. He took the time to ensure he understood what we wanted, as well as helped us to stay on budget. We have moved and because of Angelo's professionalism and great work, we are using him again for our new house.

It was great to hear from you again. Thank you so much for sharing this review of your experience with us in 2015 and for entrusting us with the project at your new home. I also appreciated your referral of ALL-PRO Landscaping to your mother for the retaining wall project we completed for her last fall. Looking forward to working with you again this season. Bye for now, Angelo

Exterior waterproofing and water drainage management

All-Pro completed the work in a timely fashion and were very professional to deal with. There were a number of surprises and Angelo and his team communicated with me (the homeowner) regularly and managed the project seamlessly.

Hello Carol. Thank you so much for your review of the work we completed for you last month. I really appreciate that you made time during this busy Holiday Season to share your experience with homeowners. Looking forward to meeting with you later this week to discuss design solutions for the landscaping elements in front of your home. Bye for now, Angelo

Above and Beyond

We had some work done by All-Pro several years ago, probably pre HomeStars. Angelo did a great job and we were more than satisfied with his work. Recently we had the upheaval Of Bell Fibe being installed outside the house. In the process one of our paving stones was broken. We called Angelo to see where he had bought them. He found us a replacement in his yard and even cut it and laid it for us.
That's going above and beyond!

Our original project for you in 2004 definitely does predate the creation of HomeStars by a few years. It was great to hear from you again this season; I was very happy to have been able to help you out. Thank you ever so much for sharing this review with HomeStars readers! All the best, Angelo

Patio and walkway

We contacted Angelo based on reviews that we had seen on Homestars and elsewhere online. They responded quickly, and came out to give us an estimate, which was the best of the two quotes that we obtained. The work they did was great. Angelo followed up personally to make sure we were happy with the work and went above and beyond to fix a couple of minor issues. I would strongly recommend going with All Pro for a landscaping project.

Thank you, John, for recommending ALL-PRO Landscaping. My ultimate goal for each project is that the client be happy with the result based on the project parameters we had agreed upon. I do my personal best to try to achieve that goal. It was great to work with you. I look forward to meeting with you again regarding the small project that we discussed the other day. Many thanks, Angelo

step to back garden

Needed to add 2 small steps to an elevated back garden area to allow easier access. Angelo has done a number of jobs for us over the past several years from back patio, elevated garden, etc. all work has been completed to an excellent level.

We were very glad to be of assistance to you and your wife again this summer, seven years since our initial landscape construction project for you back in 2010. For first-time inquiries, we are generally unable to consider a project of this relatively small scale. However, for existing ALL-PRO Landscaping clients such as yourselves, we welcome the opportunity to continue to help with customizing your outdoor space — whether the project is large OR small! Thank you so much for posting this review to HomeStars! All the best, Angelo

Retaining Wall, Pad & Driveway

Our experience with Angelo and the crew from All Pro was excellent from start to finish. We required a retaining wall and pad for a new shed at the rear corner of our house, which is on a slope. It was clear to us right from the initial consultation phase that Angelo knew his stuff - he took his time to understand the site, and recommended a solution which was far more durable and stable than any other contractor we saw. The net result was not only attractive, but engineered to last. The crew were punctual, skilled and hard-working, and did not mind frequent observation by curious homeowners :) Although this is clearly a busy operation, communication was clear and timely. Pricing was fair, transparent, and reflected the quality of the job and materials. I would recommend All Pro without hesitation, and they will definitely be my first call for the next landscaping project at my home.

Many thanks, David, for sharing this thoughtful and thorough review with the HomeStars community! We strive to deliver on all counts: Design solutions that are structurally sound, visually pleasing and functional … An approach to clients and project sites that is respectful — the way that we would want to be treated as clients … And, as you say, fair and transparent pricing for quality materials and installation specifically detailed in a signed client contract. We appreciated the opportunity to work with you this season, and look forward to assisting you with any future landscape construction projects you may have. All the best, Angelo

Front and Sidewalk interlocking Pickering

We hired All pro to do our front and side walk interlocking. The time from our initial discussion till the project completion Angelo was simply outstanding. The way he communicated with us in each stage of the project was great. Only thing we need to do is to just sit and relax, he gives importance to each and every minute detail of the project and he goes a long way to satisfy their customers. We are extremely happy with the outcome and we strongly recommend All-pro!!

Hello Hameed! What truly elevated the overall design impact of your project, was the decision to clad your concrete front porch with pavers to tie in with the walkway design, while also incorporating Armour Stone accents into the design for the front steps to increase visual interest. I am glad that you mentioned communication, because I do make a concerted effort to keep my clients “in the loop” prior to and throughout the project. It's how I believe business should be conducted. And it all starts with understanding the needs and expectations of the homeowner before developing and fine-tuning a specific design solution for the project site – meaning that effective communication runs both ways. It was great working with you. Thank you for recommending ALL-PRO Landscaping! All the best, 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 30 YEARS . . .
Over the past 30 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 28 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 more than 30 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. If we factor HomeStars leads into this equation, 90 per cent of our business originates from client referrals, previous clients and online client reviews.
...........
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.
> The ALL-PRO Landscaping fleet includes a dump truck, three dump trailers, one box trailer, four skid steers (three 6-foot and one 3-foot), two mini-excavators (one 4-foot and one 3-foot) and a pick-up truck.
> 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 a daily basis. On that spreadsheet, each request is tracked by initial date of inquiry.
During the construction season, Angelo strives to touch base with homeowners within two weeks of their initial inquiry (unless he had already placed a temporary hold on quoting before the inquiry was received).
From April to November, Angelo does his best to integrate quoting into his existing project work schedule, but client projects always take priority—which both current and prospective clients are sure to appreciate. He does quite a bit of quoting, weather permitting, from December through March, which enables him to focus more of his energies on his clients and projects once the weather allows us to break ground in late March or early April.
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.

Interlocking Stone
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. .....................................................................................................................................................................................
