Backyard and side walkways; new driveway; front steps and landing

We hired All Pro to undertake a complete overhaul of our backyard, side walkway, new driveway, and new front entrance. The old existing interlocking driveway had to be removed, as did a number of old retaining walls. Angelo and his team worked efficiently to complete this large project, and accommodated several design modifications that we requested along the way. Very knowledgeable and pleasant workers. We are very pleased with the result. Looks fantastic!

New front paving stone steps and side fence with gate

We contacted Angelo for a quote on replacing front entrance steps with new paving stones, and 80 feet of backyard fence. It was a great pleasure having Angelo and his crew complete our requirements, as they were very professional and cleaned up daily as project progressed. As this project was started late Oct./Nov. 2018 cold weather caused some delays, but they managed to complete the project within our timeframe. We have no problem recommending Angelo's company to any new customers, and we would not hesitate to use Angelo and his crew again for any future work we may require.
Thanks Angelo it was a pleasure having you assist us with our projects.

I contacted Angelo since my backyard needed some work. The grass needed to be replaced, a couple of beds and a tree removed, and a flower bed with stone sides added.

Previously, Angelo's company had done a nice job for us on an interlocking front walkway.

The backyard landscaping was done well and we were very satisfied with the results.

We are so grateful, D, that you submitted this review of the backyard project we completed at your home in Spring 2018. Thank you for also mentioning the front entrance walkway and garden wall we constructed for you back in 2011. We are always delighted to hear from our clients! All the best, Angelo

Backyard Patio, Retaining Wall and Gardens

Angelo and his team undertook a very large project which reshaped 80% of our backyard! He installed a new paver stone patio, new fence posts and panels, framed and filled our gardens and laid new sod. After a slower than expected start due to a very wet April, they worked diligently and consistently to get the project completed as efficiently as possible. His guys were hardworking through hot and humid days and were very pleasant, respectful and dedicated. The patio looks fantastic, the gardens are exactly what we wanted (even though we threw some changes at them partway through), and he worked with our other contractor who was building a roof structure over the patio to make sure everything was well coordinated and completed professionally. The end result is better than we could have imagined and we have been enjoying the new outdoor space immensely. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.

It was a pleasure, Richard, to work with you to renew your backyard living space for your family to enjoy for many years to come. Thank you for your recommendation! The ALL-PRO Landscaping crew is indeed hardworking and dedicated, but the weather was a definite challenge! We are ever mindful that we are working at our clients’ homes; we did our best to work as efficiently and cleanly as possible while transforming almost every inch of your backyard. Thank you, again, for sharing this review with the HomeStars community. All the best, Angelo

Shrub Removal, Sodding, Reset Pavers

Once again ALL-PRO Landscaping completed a project for us with expertise and professionalism. Angelo's quote was exactly what we had anticipated and his timing was perfect for us. Angelo and his team removed six overgrown bushes and levelled and sodded over a large garden in the centre of our yard. They also rerouted an eavestrough downspout and cut and reset some pavers. We are very happy with the results and have no hesitation in recommending ALL-PRO Landscaping. Angelo's communication as always was excellent and it is important to us to deal with a company that carries the proper insurance overage and is a member of Landscape Ontario.

Dear Lynda and Walter, Thank you for posting your third HomeStars review of ALL-PRO Landscaping and for sending so many referrals to us since our first project in 2007. For insight into the scope of our projects over the years, I encourage homeowners to read the two previous reviews you posted in Mar. 2011 & Nov. 2014 by clicking your page link to the left of this review. Although there may be an opportunity for us to work together in the future, this will be the final review that HomeStars will allow you to submit. So I would be remiss if I did not say that, once again, it was an absolute pleasure to work with you. Wishing you both the very best, Angelo

Major repairs to driveway and retaining wall

All Pro was one of three companies we contacted for a quote to repair a retaining wall and re-build our driveway.

Angelo and the team won-out due to their responsiveness to our questions, contract best-practices (resources covered by Workers Comp, phased payment approach), and a fair price.

The final product was great! Their workmanship and professionalism met all our expectations.

Company Response

Thank you, Nicole and Ray, for sharing this wonderful feedback regarding your project— from first meeting to final payment! The removal of your old 50-foot poured concrete retaining wall required specialized equipment and experience, which also made ALL-PRO Landscaping a good fit for your project. I always welcome questions from homeowners. It ensures that they understand the basis for my proposal and also provides me with additional insights into their needs and expectations when developing and fine-tuning a specific design solution for their project. I am happy that you were so pleased with the process and the final result! Thank you, again! All the best, Angelo

Swimming pool fill

We had a concrete pool (16x200). Angelo and his Team worked very professionally and maintained communication at every stage of the project. His company has all the right equipment to get the job done.
The Company provides warranty for all the work ( Including commitment to top up Soil after 1 winter). Angelo knows what he is doing with confidence I can tell you trust him. After Filling the pool, in about 20 days, Soil sank a bit, and Angelo topped up the soil as committed.

Definitely will recommend the service.

Company Response

We really appreciate your review, Bala. Yes, we honour a two-year warranty against sinkage of the lawn area within the original pool footprint. In your case, I left a bit of "headroom" in the area pending your decision next spring regarding how you want to finish it. Depending on what you decide, you may need to add topsoil first. We also “enjoyed” some extreme rain storms during your project, creating mud and sinkage, and interrupting the job for a brief period of time. Looking forward to meeting with you in the springtime to discuss how you would like to finish your backyard. Thank you for your recommendation! All the best, Angelo

stone border around flower beds after removal of existing lumber border approximate area of 400 linear feet a total cost of $7,200:00

The original estimate and the process leading up to the estimate was handled very professionally. The work was started ahead of original schedule and completed in a timely manner. The workers were helpful and cleaned up well each day. I am very satisfied with the result and would have no reservations in recommending this company to prospective customers.

Company Response

Hi Len. We are so grateful for your recommendation! Since establishing ALL-PRO Landscaping over 30 years ago, I have tried to treat our more than a thousand clients the way that I would want to be treated when I retain services for my own home. That includes the estimating process. I invest hours of work in a typical quotation, in order to provide the kind of detailed, typed document that you received, specifying the materials and dimensions for each project component. It helps homeowners to understand the basis for the estimated pricing and what the warranty, HST and payment terms would be. Our team is glad to have helped “reframe” all of your beautiful garden beds for you and your wife to enjoy for many years to come! All the best, Angelo

Driveway, walkway.

We have had All-Pro do 2 landscaping projects, the first 20 years ago, the second the fall of 2018. If we had a third, we would definitely use All-Pro. We are extremely pleased with the work, and have had neighbors tell us how good it looks. Angelo even came himself to finish one small detail that was put off because of the weather.

Company Response

Thank-you for these kind words! After our installation of your interlock paver driveway two decades ago, the pavers were definitely ready for a refresh this year, although still sound. At the same time, we were also happy to extend the esthetic to include your front walkway and entrance for harmonized curb appeal! We held off on the parging component of your project due to the extreme heat this August. Heat can cause parging to crack as it cures, so I wanted to come back to install the parging when the weather was more appropriate to the task. Wishing you and your wife all the best, Angelo

Fenced Side patio on Sloped hill for Garden Shed

We were so impressed with All Pro’s work on our retaining walls in the past that they were the only company we approached. Angelo checked with us on what our needs were for this project and like a great project manager he was able to recommend a better and cheaper solution. The team was great and able to assist with my concerns and questions.. We required new fencing on one side of our yard and wanted to put a Garden Shed at the side of our house. The land is quite sloped and required a level pad to be built with fencing all around. the team built a great pad with drainage. Plus a solid new fence. We are ready for our new Shed. And now our wee dog can’t get under the fence. Thanks again Angelo and All Pro

Company Response

It was great to work with you and your husband again this season after our previous project in 2015! Yes, resolving your drainage issues while at the same time constructing the base for your shed on the slope did require some planning. Good landscape design is a careful balancing act: functionality, safety, structural integrity, budget and esthetics all contribute toward a successful design solution. It’s wonderful to hear that we met all of your expectations. Your HomeStars reviews for the 2015 and 2018 projects are greatly appreciated by all of us here at ALL-PRO Landscaping! Many thanks, 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.

...........
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. .....................................................................................................................................................................................
