This is the second time Jeremy and Ofer have come through for us. They installed a 1,200 sqft patio/pool surround in our backyard, transforming it from what we used to laughing refer to as a nuclear cooling pond into Shangri-La.
This project was actually a couple of years in the making as we dithered about design and what to do with such a large area. Taylor was really patient with us and re-worked the design a few times to our needs.
When the time came to build it, the crew was every bit as great as the first one that did our massive retaining wall, driveway and front stairs. The level of quality was for sure there and when we had to have a subterranean issue with the pool pipes addressed, the person that came to do it was impressed at how deep the actual work went below grade.
Land-Con coordinated seamlessly with our sprinkler team, helping them make any adjustments or additions that were needed. They even installed conduit channels under everything so we could add a firepit and connect our BBQ with no visible lines.
Another awesome job by Land-Con! I will get some photos up soon!!!
Wow, thanks for the great review! We have certainly done a lot of work at your house over the years. Were always glad to work with you when you call for some more renovations!
Our 80s back yard was in serious need of an update, and full reno, including pool. We got three quotes, Land-Con was one. In fact, Land-Con was the only one to break out the quote in detail, and provide a full 3D plan of what we had discussed. We met with Taylor and Ofer, and couldn't have been happier - honest, trust worth guys who Love what they do.
Part way through, we had a couple of changes and add ons, and Ofer and Taylor kept the whole process smooth and seamless.
I added a front address sign that i had seen in a photo, Taylor made it happen just based on my vague description - and even better than the photo.
Fantastic service, we love the end result, and can't wait for Spring Summer to enjoy our new Back yard!
Thank you Land-Con!
That's great to hear that you are so happy with our service. If there is anything you need in the future... we are just a phone call away. Thanks again and enjoy your new landscape!!!
In August 2017, Landcon demolished and rebuilt six flower box retaining walls in the front and side of my home. First the positives: their price was mid-range reasonable, they found an earlier more convenient start date for me, they finished on schedule in three weeks, and owners Ofer and Jeremy seemed knowledgeable and professional. I also appreciated Taylor's computerized planting diagram. The negatives: I believe I chanced upon a subpar work crew. The foreman was grumpy every day, and the workers did not seem careful or invested in the job. An overly large amount of mortar had to be used to make the bricks level and the walls are not completely straight. Only when I pointed out a shortage of a material called geogrid as a worker was bricking over it, was more geogrid ordered and applied. The company seems well run and established, so maybe other work crews employed by Landcon will do better work.
We appreciate you feedback and we have made any necessary changes to ensure the highest level of client satisfaction possible. I feel we did our best to give you a quality project and walked through the issues you were concerned about giving you a clear understanding regarding the tolerances from manufacturers products. While addressing everyone of your concerns. If there is anything else we can further help with we are always there for you.
Landcon was a great company to work with as we had a lot of elements in our complete remodel of our front and backyard which included remodelling an existing in-ground pool, and adding a sunken hot tub to the design.
They have a great 3D design program that allows the owner to really see the perspectives of the proposed work, and make changes to the design on the fly to be able to see the changes in proportion to your home and overall property.
What I liked best about Landcon was the flexibility during the project with respect to making changes and them offering us multiple solutions and including new drawings to be able to see what the solutions could look like.
A big selling piece was the fact that they managed the entire process and sub contractors (Carpentry, Electrical, Pool company) which was extremely helpful for a project this size.
I would instantly recommend Landcon to anyone looking to have smaller or larger scale Landscape work done.
Wow, what a project! It was a pleasure working with yourself and Laura on this big renovation. We are glad that you were happy with our management team and design work, and we are so happy that the results of the job are top notch. We cant wait to come back this spring to plant all your gardens, and get that Ivy wall in. This project will definitely be magazine worthy! Thanks for a great experience.
We had to tear up our front walkway to replace our sewer main. Taylor from Land-con created a design for our front walkway and talked us through what to expect. Once the work staff were on site they were friendly and polite. The team levelled, paved and created a front garden. The job took a week to complete and we are very happy with the result.
We are glad to hear that you had a nice experience with us. It was a pleasure working with you and Melissa. Feel free to contact us if anything comes up and we will be happy to assist with you!
Quality craftsmanship, professionalism and great customer care sums up my experience with Land-Con who was contracted to do a walkway, front porch, a couple sitting walls and some landscaping in my front yard.
Unlike other contractors who took days and sometimes over a week to respond both Taylor (designer) and Ofer (partner) always responded no matter what time or day it was. Taylor was able to capture what we wanted and had great ideas and Ofer is very hands on and he ensured that we were satisfied with the work before he let his crew (TJ and his team were all hard working, pleasant and respectful) go and close off the project.
Land-Con did an amazing job and I'd recommend and hire them again for future projects.
Thanks for the great review! It was nice working with you, we are always happy to create a nice modern front entrance. Feel free to post some photos on here too if you'd like! Thanks for the feedback with our construction team, too. We will be sure to give them this feedback, as they work very hard to make sure the work looks good.
Have a great summer and we hope you enjoy coming home to this nice landscape each day!

We hired Land-Con last year to replace the interlock in our backyard and front porch. They completed the project extremely quickly and efficiently and the product looked great. The workers were great. They were knowledgable, courteous and extremely friendly. They even had patience for the kids who kept coming by and asking questions.
The biggest surprise actually came this year when some weeds started sprouting in between the interlock. We contacted Land-Con expecting the usual attitude and service you receive from most home contractors. We were pleasantly surprised that none of that occurred. They send someone immediately to resolve the problem and didn't charge us anything for it. We would definitely use Land-Con again for any landscaping or interlock project in the future.
Thanks for your review! It was nice working with you last year and we look forward to working with you again one day!
Last year I wrote a review after these guys came and did my landscaping. I had no complaints at all, excellent service, product, and we were very happy. Since we started planting in the garden we found we had a problem with water retention and so I spoke to Jeremy to see what could be done. I sent photo evidence of the water not draining and within days I found two guys in my garden fixing the problem. This is what I call good customer service. Next year we are thinking of
having more work done, no need to go shopping around for quotes we will definitely use Landcon again and happily recommend them to any one looking for this type of work.
Although having to fix things is not what we strive for, we always want to make sure that if we have to fix minor details we come on time so that you are able to continue enjoying your new landscape. We stand by our work and are always happy to come back to fix minor defects! Thanks for your review and we hope you are enjoying your landscaping!
We could not have made a better decision than hiring Land-Con. They did our neighbors backyard and we liked what we saw in terms of work but had not yet met the people behind all that.
Our first interaction was with Taylor the designer, who is full of amazing ideas and gets it. he totally captured what we wanted and enhanced it to our taste. He was very mindful of not making this a more expensive project than it should have been.He was flexible with changes even until the crew arrived.
Our 2nd interaction was with Jeremy at the home show and he was very pleasant to talk to, very down to earth. He has also been amazing to work with. Cordial, accommodating, kept us informed of everything along the way. The project started and finished on time and budget. No unrealistic promises and therefor no surprises.
Our final interaction was with the Land-Con crew. What a great set of people to show up to your house everyday, full of smiles and pride in their work. Our team was headed by Ron and supported by Minor. Lovely lovely folks.
To the entire Land-Con team - THANK YOU! If anyone ever needs to see what work was done, come on by and we'd be happy to show you.
Sorry for the late response here, things have been crazy busy this year! We're so happy with the finished project at your house, and we are thrilled that you are enjoying it too. Its nice to hear that you had a good experience with each and every one of our staff, and we're pleased to know you had a good experience working with us. Thank you for the awesome review and all the photos. Looking forward to working with you again in the future!
