Wow! That's typically what everyone says the first time they see our new backyard and it's all thanks to Landcon. Jeremy, Ofer, and their team were a great pleasure to work with and we gladly recommend them to anyone who's interested in doing any major renovation for their home's exterior. They're a one-step shop meaning they can take care of everything (including permits) and use their crews as needed to get the job done. Our project consisted of a complete demolition of the backyard and structures, new pool, new hardscaping, electrical, plumbing, gas, and some carpentry. So not a small project by any means.
We found Landcon after seeing some of their social media posts on Instagram and from a work colleague that had used them years before. After an initial consult, they were able to take a vision of what we thought our backyard could look like and then enhance it with their creative designs. This process takes a while but it works well and you get to visually see what your renovation can end up looking like. Once you've signed off, they will present to you a quote for you to review. One great aspect of how the company is run is how they present their statement of work to you (the quote). Everything is itemized right down to the littlest thing. This ended up helping us out as our project grew a little too big for our budget and they were able to help us reduce some costs while still keeping the overall vision. A lot of other companies may not spend the time with you to get you to a workable budget but Landcon were always willing to help us out after much back and forth. We liked how they use an online system for payments and for any change orders that can come up which were outside of the original contract. Oh and seeing your home's progress posted on social media is pretty cool.
As for the work? <chef's kiss> We were very fortunate that permits and weather all lined up well so that our project started way ahead of schedule which meant that we'd be able to have our work finished just in time for the warm, summer weather. The crews that came and went were efficient, on time, and professional. I have to say that I was blown away by how meticulous the main crew was when preparing the area and laying down the hardscaping. The work schedule runs like a well oiled machine and we practically had workers every day until the majority of the work was done. Everyone was friendly and each one of them cleaned up after their day ended. Our neighbours actually commented on how professional and courteous they were when they'd see them out on the road sweeping at the end of the day. A big shout out to John and his crew and if you can, try and request him as they do an amazing job. Another shout to to Phil the electrician and his guys who did an outstanding job as well. As other reviews have mentioned and with a job of this size, there's bound to be some issues that come up whether they're minor or major. John or Jeremy were always ready to listen and help to resolve them. Even when we had a bigger issue towards the end, Landcon was able to work with their partners and come to a satisfying solution for us. This is where a company like Landcon differentiates themselves from others. Most other companies could have left us out to hang or to "just deal with it" but they came through for us and made us very happy.
It's hard to believe that it's been a full year since we reached out to them for a quote but the work is now complete and we're very satisfied with how it turned out. Thank you Landcon for giving us the backyard oasis we've always wanted and we hope to build many new memories for years to come with it. We look forward to reaching out to you again for our next project.
