Deck removal and patio and steps installation

We had All-Pro remove an old rotting wooden deck and install a very large patio and steps in our backyard. They were very quick and efficient, and did a great job. This job was $9600.

Since we were happy with the results of that job, we more recently hired All-Pro to extend the patio even more and re-lay patio stones and gravel along the side of the house to ensure proper water run-off. This job was $2700.

They did a great job in both cases, for a reasonable price.

I would definitely hire them again.

Dave, it was so nice to work with you again this year, after having transformed your backyard about three and a half years ago. About 90 per cent of our business originates from client referrals and reviews, and from clients who come back to us with their ideas for new projects. Thank you for calling us back to extend your backyard patio and address the issues at the side of the house, and for sharing with the HomeStars community your experience with both projects. All the best, Angelo

Retaining wall replacement- great job

I needed a retaining wall replaced- All-Pro worked with me on the options, explained in detail the work they would do, and was flexible and accommodating working with the fencing contractor who did the fence at the same time. Great work and attention to detail!

Company Response

Hello Mike. Yes, your project did involve more coordination than usual — with record rainfall in April and May presenting the greatest scheduling challenge for us and your fence company. Ensuring sufficiently dry soil conditions for the excavation and installation of your stone retaining wall and other project components was our overriding concern. But we persevered! Your review of our work means so much to the entire ALL-PRO Landscaping team. Many thanks, Angelo

Landscaping Services

We used All-Pro Landscaping for our back patio and garden - we were so happy with both the company and the end product that we called them to do our front landscaping as well. Angelo and his team were extremely professional - on time, polite, knowledgeable and talented. They delivered on budget and always had great ideas to improve the design. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a reputable and trustworthy landscaper. You can rest assured that the work is done right the first time.

It was wonderful to work with you and Richard again this year, after having completed the renovation of your backyard living space last fall! Thank you for entrusting us with the task of refreshing the curb appeal of your home with a new interlock paver front walkway, stone garden wall, driveway soldier course, and a four-foot-wide natural stone step with Armour Stone accents. Although a family friend had originally recommended us to you, it is important to note that you did further due diligence by scanning the reviews on our HomeStars page before deciding to contact us. Thank you for setting up a HomeStars profile in order to share your own thoughtful perspective with homeowners. Very much appreciated! All the best, Angelo

Pool Fill in and patio replaced

Excellent communication and implementation from start to finish. All work was systematically carried out with professional experience. The grading and patio work was done correctly to allow water to run away from house. You would never know there use to be a pool in the backyard. Great job by Angelo and crew!

Company Response

Thank you, Gino, for posting this review of the pool fill-in project we completed for you last fall and the patio and sod installation completed this summer. Our approach to landscape construction is indeed a systematic one. This includes pool fill-in projects … clients are usually quite surprised by our detailed specifications for how we prepare and fill pool structures. The materials used and how they are installed is vital. Clients are also amazed by the transformation and the amount of living space that they reclaim. Enjoy! Many thanks for your kind words. All the best, Angelo

Installation of Pavers

We finally decided to hardscape our "tricky" side yard and called All-Pro for a quote and design ideas. Angelo offered expert advice and delivered a superior finished walkway that complements our house style and brick colour. Angelo's team was very professional and able to execute the design as specified in a very timely fashion.
The job from start to finish was exceptional!
We would highly recommend All-Pro Landscaping.

Many thanks for taking the time to assess the project we completed for you and your husband last year. For me, as a "landscaper," there is nothing quite as fulfilling as helping clients to transform areas of their properties that have been ongoing sources of annoyance or dissatisfaction to them ... or that may even pose potential safety risks. When I survey "tricky" problem areas and discuss design options, I have the benefit of 30-plus years' experience in hard landscape construction which I am always happy to share with my clients. Thank you for recommending ALL-PRO Landscaping! All the best, Angelo

Backyard Landscaping

For two years, my wife and I would look with frustration at our unfinished, sloping backyard, left by a procrastinating, unethical contractor.
In August 2016, we met with Angelo Tersigni, owner of ALL-PRO Landscaping and were impressed. Right from the get-go, Angelo surveyed the backyard, made constructive comments and shared creative ideas for our landscaping requirements and budget. We hired him to restore beauty and “usability” to our backyard.

Client communication was prompt and specific. Angelo and his crew were punctual, professional perfectionists. Their work ethics were admirable as they worked with integrity, respect and pride in their work. They caused no disruption and needed no supervision. Clean up was impeccable.

We are delighted to have our beautiful, completed patio stoned backyard with a sturdy retaining wall, back, to enjoy once again.

We highly recommend ALL-PRO Landscaping. You can trust them to do a super job.

Dear Maurice. It is wonderful to hear that you and Maureen are enjoying your reclaimed backyard living space! Your comments regarding the professionalism of the ALL-PRO Landscaping team certainly mean a great deal to us. Constructing a quality product that is also aesthetically-pleasing and within the allotted budget is obviously vital, but the client's experience is also a key priority for the team. Thank you! Angelo

Paving Stone Project

I have hired All-Pro Landscaping on several occasions.

Last year I decided to change the paving stones on the patio, driveway, front and side walkways. The cost of the project reflects the pavers I chose to use ( Unilock Richcliff). The pavers were beautiful when they were laid and they are still beautiful today.

Angelo and his crew are true professionals. If you are looking for an honest and reliable contractor then contact All- Pro Landscaping and Carpentry Ltd.

Company Response

I am so grateful for your review, written from the perspective of a client who has entrusted us with several projects over the years. We just checked our invoice records to confirm that this was our sixth landscape construction project for you over an 11-year period: 2006, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2014 and 2016! Trust is earned, so choosing a contractor can be a bit daunting for a first-time prospective client. That’s why a moderated review forum like HomeStars.com is such a valuable resource for homeowners. Thank you for sharing your experience with ALL-PRO Landscaping. I am glad that you're still pleased with your paver selection which included a soldier course accent border using Unilock Courtstone pavers in dark Basalt to contrast with the Pebble Taupe colour of the Richcliff. Thank you, again, for your review, and for your ongoing trust. All the best, Angelo

Backyard Patio / Landscaping

Wendy and I are more than pleased with Angelo's work. Angelo and his crew of professionals, created for us our own little Zen Garden. Living in the Port Union / West Rouge area, we wanted to work with a landscaper who knew the area and was local. Angelo did not disappoint. Angelo was prompt with quotes, addressed our concerns and was more than flexible with the job completion timeframe. Angelo's crew were courteous and respectful to both Wendy and I and to our neighbours. Will we use Angelo's services again; absolutely!!! Thanks for a job well done.

Company Response

Thank you, Don and Wendy, for posting this thoughtful evaluation of our work for you. I will be sure to share your kind remarks with the crew. It was indeed a pleasure; and in the coming weeks, I look forward to collaborating with you again … this time on a design solution for revitalizing the front of your property in the fall. Yes, I am definitely “local.” Over the past 30 years, ALL-PRO Landscaping has helped many West Rouge residents create their own slice of paradise while adding value to their homes. Having grown up in West Rouge, I have made that community a focus of my core service area which also includes the neighborhoods of Highland Creek, Rouge Hill, Port Union and Guildwood, and extends eastward into Pickering and Ajax as far as Lake Ridge Road (Durham Regional Road 23). With our office located in Highland Creek and our yard situated in north Ajax, maintaining this core service area enables us to reduce travel time and transportation-related costs and our carbon-footprint, among other benefits. Looking forward to re-connecting with you in a few weeks. All the best, Angelo

OFilled in a pool, graded, and layed a flagstone Patio

Allpro Landscaping did a great job from start to finish. What I enjoyed most was the communication and schedule keeping.
2 thumbs up! Great Job.
I would highly recommend Allpro if you are having any landscaping done.

Hello Patrick. Thank you for taking the time to recommend ALL-PRO Landscaping to the HomeStars community. I particularly appreciate your comment about our approach to “communication and schedule keeping”. Over 30 years of working with more than a thousand clients, I have tried to treat my clients the way that I would want to be treated when I retain services for my own home. Client communication has to be a priority throughout all stages of the project -- from specifications and modifications, to scheduling and progress. My father and I founded this company, so I take a great deal of pride in honouring his memory with honesty, integrity and quality craftsmanship. All the best, Angelo

Interlock Patio, walkway and landscaping

Angelo and his crew are great to work with. Angelo was able to give us a couple creative landscape design ideas to choose from that fit our budget. The project turned out beautifully and has made our home look spectacular. We would highly recommend All-Pro Landscaping. Thank you Angelo!

Thank you, Michelle, for your review of our projects for your family over the past seven years! We particularly appreciate that you called us back to help with these projects, on the strength of the work we had completed at your former home in the previous 10 years or so. It was a pleasure to work with you to enhance the curb appeal of your home and the functionality of your outdoor living space. 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.

CATEGORIES
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. .....................................................................................................................................................................................
