Interlocking and sodding

Rick replaced the interlocking on our garden walkway, did some needed re-sodding and power washed our patio. He and his team did a super job. Very happy with the results, and Rick was great to work with from start to finish.

Interlock Driveway and Backyard Path

Rick and his team went above and beyond, from our initial contact with his wife (while they were on vacation), to the end of our project.
The cost for the amount of work, time, materials and outcome, was well worth it!
We were so impressed with the communication; discussing process, costs, best solutions, options etc.
My neighbours were amazed, not only at their
beautiful job, but at how clean the crew always left the neighbourhood and how respectful they were to everyone.
Rick even went so far as to put sod on for the finishing touches!
Thank you Rick and crew, for creating exactly what we wanted and far exceeding our expectations!
Note: I think my dogs are missing you!

Thank you Andrea for the spectacular review!
It was our pleasure working with you and Paul, and we are so happy to hear how pleased you are with the end result!
Rick and our crew strive to ensure that our workmanship is the best it can be and, clean up at the end of the day is a MUST!
I'm sure the dogs will miss Rick, I met one of them when we passed by so I could see the job!
We look forward to working with you again in the future!
Best Regards

residential retaining wall

Rick and Ashleigh were a big part of my life for a 6-month period in 2017, as they worked with me through conception, planning, and a significant amount of co-ordination with a surveyor and a commercial property manager whose property abuts mine.
Through it all, Rick and Ashleigh were patient, open-minded, and focused on getting my job done successfully.
Rick was onsite for the work, with two helpers, and the job was wrapped up in the day, and the area left very clean.
Two years later and I'm very happy with my wall--not only has it passed through two freeze/thaw cycles unmoved, but its brought a lot of peace and stability to my life, and backyard.
Thanks again Rick & Ashleigh !

Front walkway

Rick designed the front walkway to our house and at the same time remedied a problem we were having with ponding of water against the foundation.
The workmanship and quality of products is near flawless. We get compliments all the time on how fabulous it looks.
We will definitely be calling Hofstetter Landscaping again for future projects which we have planned around our house.

Driveway and backyard installation

Looking back at whole project proceedings, we are very happy finding and hiring Hofstetter landscaping company. Not only did they do excellent work, the communication, customer service and help cannot be understated.
For large project of this size hiring trusted and experienced professionals is absolutely crucial or .. you know what happens. In fact it took us substantial amount of time to find the right contractor.
Thank you Ashleigh and Rick for creating this amazing project for us!

We appreciate your kind words!
You both worked with Rick to create a beautiful outdoor living space!
We hope you have been able to spend a lot of time enjoying your patio this summer!
I'm sure it's gratifying to arrive home, and appreciate the curb appeal your driveway, walkway and porch and steps now has.
It was our pleasure working with you both!

Landscaping courtyard

I obtained 3 quotes to install a new back courtyard in my condo. A small job including 4 stairs and courtyard nestled in the centre of my floral garden. Rick Hofstetter was my first call and he had me at hello. Rick’s polite manner and problem solving skills put me at ease and made me feel special when he said no job is too small.
Rick patiently measured the area and really listened to what I envisioned. He took the time and made 2 drawings and looked at different stone until we decided on the drawing and stone that fit my budget. Rick’s creativity, expertise and attention to detail and safety resulted in a win win solution for both of us.
Ashleigh is the office manager and very professional at being the face to the customer. She is thorough, polite, personable, pays attention to detail, can answer all of your questions and follows up with her customers.
The on site crew were fun, experienced professional and artists in their trade. They were constantly examining an re-examining their work making sure it was to the Hofstetter quality standard of excellence. They did a fantastic job.
I have recommended Hofstetter Landscaping to family and friends.
Thank you Hofstetter Landscaping!

Landscaping- new retaining wall and stairs

Removal of old railway tie retaining wall / steps and interlocking brick and replacement with new engineered stone retaining wall and stairs.
Incredibly fast and efficient work- 1 day removal and 1 day build. The crew was very neat, the job was excellent and the disruption to neighbours was minimal.
This was the second job Rick and Ron did for us- the first is still looking good 10 years later. Comforting to know that Hofstetter landscaping is not a 'flash in the pan' but a company with years of experience.
The quote was exact.
I highly recommend Hofstetter Landscaping.

Thank you for the great review!
It's always a pleasure to work with our previous clients, and to also hear that work we did ten years ago still looks good.
Our crews work diligently to ensure the work we do only has to be done once!
Rick is a perfectionist, therefore all our jobs have the seal of approval from both Rick and Ron when each job is complete.
Have a wonderful summer, and enjoy the transformation of your front!
It truly looks amazing!

Best Regards
Rick and Ashleigh

Front walkway and steps.

We called Rick and his wife for a quote. We needed a rebuild/levelling of our front entrance walkway and steps. Rick came out promptly and got his hands dirty with digging, before giving a real informative quote. We had 4 other contractors also quote, but the fact that he was so detailed and energetic, gave us confidence and we are not disappointed a year later. They replaced the sod and did a little asphalt work to link to the driveway. Work was done in 1 afternoon, big crew and very fast turnaround. Try them.

More about Hofstetter Landscaping

Landscaping Contractors & Designers, Interlocking Stone.

OWNERSHIP AND CREDENTIALS
Hofstetter Landscaping is owned and operated by Rick and Ashleigh Hofstetter. Our “baby” was born in 1989 and is now 23 years old. (In case you’re wondering how old we are...suffices to say we are evergreens. :-) Did we tell you we are a landscaping company?)
From the beginning, we have always endeavoured to do the best quality work possible for our clients. We specialize in landscaping and that’s one of the reasons our “baby” has no siblings—no sister companies, no associates, no partners, no branches. Landscaping is what we do and we do it really well.

A TORONTO LANDSCAPING COMPANY WITH A DIFFERENCE
Ever since we started, and even more so now, we find the market exploding with Toronto landscaping companies that make a big noise about “cheap, cheap”. Now, if they were selling birds, it would be okay, but they are not, right? And yet, we often lose a job to a cheap company that “specializes” in being a “Jack-of-all-trades”. Do we want to compete with them? No. But does that mean we are frightfully expensive? Not at all! In fact, our goal is always to ensure that our customers get the best value for money and a landscape that makes them the envy of the neighbourhood without breaking the bank.

As we come across customers who do their due diligence by comparing quotes, we are very mindful and respectful of the fact that one needs to be price conscious. It’s when we are told about a competitive quote that implies “the other guy” can get the job done for less than it costs us to buy quality materials, the alarm bells go off. He needs a hefty deposit from you to pay his guys for the last job done, and of course, there is always that famous curbside taillight guarantee!

We would like to go on and tell you what we have learned and found out in these past 23 years but you wouldn't be able to read it all...

WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE TO ENGAGE OUR LANDSCAPING SERVICES IN TORONTO

All we want to say is this—we do top quality work with a guarantee you can count on, every single time. If it’s not to your liking we'll do what it takes to make it right. We'll be there in years to come, particularly if the weather has given the work a beating.

• We are fully covered with 5 million liability insurance and WSIB approved.
• Our crew is safety certified or they don't work for us.
• Our business has City of Toronto licensing.
• Each team member has government ID.
• We pay our taxes and are an ethical, honest, law-abiding enterprise.

Yes, you will find cheaper Toronto landscaping companies out there. Will you find one better than us in terms of reputation for quality work and customer references? Not likely.
