Front Yard/Parking Pad

About 5 years ago, we hired ME Contracting to do our backyard. We were thrilled with the job they did, so when it came time to deal with the front of our house, (small East York property), we knew who to call.

Daryl came by, listened to what we wanted in the design and in the selection of plants, and quickly came back with a sketch and estimate. We then worked together to refine the ideas and plan for a Spring start.

The bulk of the job took two days, with an additional day for the four planters to be installed and planted. The team doing the work on site were efficient, thorough, kind, and very respectful of our property, as well as our neighbours, and the plants selected for us are so much better than we could have come up with ourselves.

We wouldn't hesitate to use them again, and have had several neighbours go out of their way to compliment the work and ask who our contractor was. There is no hesitation in telling them it's M.E. Contracting.

Urban Backyard

Daryl and his team were nothing but wonderful to work with. They went above and beyond and made sure we were happy. They worked with me creatively to capture the overall design I was hoping for and did it all very quickly too! Luckily Daryl snuck us in so our yard was done for our wedding. Everything looked amazing and the best part was the next morning when the wedding was all over we had this amazing outdoor living space. We have enjoyed our yard every single day since! Highly recommend.

Landscape design and planting

M.E. was a delight to deal with. She was able to come up with a wonderful design that enhances some unusual small pieces of land that we have in front of our house. She listened to what we wanted in terms of the type of look and low maintenance and then designed a very creative and attractive plan that far exceeded our expectations, yet fit within our budget. The result was a very attractive garden with additional flourishes like trellises and large planter urns that enhanced our front entrance. Ann is very hands on and was there for the plantings by her crew. Her crew were very polite and cleaned the area after they were done. Anne was excellent with follow-up, including promptly replacing one planting that had died from shock, We would highly recommend this company.

Glass and Steel Deck and Stone Patio

M.E. Contracting completed a deck, patio and backyard renovation project for us this past Summer.
We were apprehensive about the job done being properly as the deck was going to be glass and steel and substantially elevated.
We contacted a good number of landscaping and decking companies. A number of decking companies declined the project as the height , and materials of the deck were beyond the scope and experience of what they had done, and several were outrageously expensive.

We dealt with Daryl , who project managed and went through in detail the planning scope and execution of the work. He was not fixed on his ideas and open to what WE wanted.
The work was done according to plan , and executed really well.
The whole team Daryl , Blake , Claudio, Simone and everyone on site was very professional , respectful and open.

The communication at all stages was excellent . There was very little chasing around and anticipated delays were communicated well in advance.

They did a great job and we would highly recommend them.

Extensive Hardscaping Project

We recently had an extensive multi-phase project done by ME Contracting, which included grading, asphalt driveway, paver patio and sidewalks, concrete planters and address wall, and a steel and glass staircase and railings.
We were very pleased with Daryl’s management of the project. He has a solid knowledge of landscape construction that enabled him to come up with creative solutions, and we liked his collaborative, customer-focused approach and positive ‘can-do’ attitude. He always gave us the straight facts, which helped to build a good working relationship throughout the job.
We are absolutely thrilled with the glass and steel staircase and railings that Kaz built. He is a skilled craftsman and very meticulous. If we were reviewing this alone, we would give ME 11 out of 10 stars.
The true test of a company though is not just the quality of work, but how they handle issues. Keren kept tabs on the project, and when a couple of glitches occurred, Keren addressed these and made sure that we were ultimately satisfied with the results.
Overall, we are happy with the outcome, and would definitely work with ME Contracting again.

Deck, basement walkout, landscaping and fencing

M.E. Contracting did a fabulous job in adding a basement walkout and a deck to the back of our home in downtown Toronto. They also landscaped the backyard, added fencing etc. Not only was the price competitive and the project delivered on time, but Daryl was always very responsive and his team were friendly and professional. I found M.E. Contracting through Homestars and am delighted with the results. Many thanks! Richard, Toronto

Backyard Makeover

We could not be happier with our experience M.E. Contracting. From the start Benda and Daryl took the time to tour the showroom and discuss options and ideas for our renovation. Daryl and team were very helpful and accommodative matching our needs and wants with our budget. Claudio and the build team were very professional and friendly, open to feedback and accommodating every detail and minute adjustment we asked for.

The end result was exactly what we wanted with no surprises along the way.

Front yard restoration

From day one Daryl and the boys were spot on. Daryl worked with us in the beginning to help us stay within our budget by providing more affordable options in our renovation. Our renovation consisted of a new permeable parking pad, pressure treated planter box retaining walls and a new stone like stairway. We are very pleased with how it all came together and the final outcome. The site Forman and crew were very professional and kept us informed the whole time. Even came up with a better suggestion for the planter boxes that ended up looking even better. Our project was started when they said they would and finished up in a very timely manner (even worked 2 days straight in the damp, cold rain). Will definitely be calling these guys for future projects. Thank you very much to everyone at M.E. for making this a great renovation for us.

Backyard Deck

I used Daryl and the M.E. team to build a PVC deck and provide landscaping services in my backyard. Daryl was a great project manager who provided insight, expert knowledge and importantly transparency through the whole project. Daryl was accessible and easy to work with.
I'd certainly recommend Daryl and the M.E. team to others who are in need of their services

Great work on courtyard entry to half basement

Daryl, Blake and their team installed a timber retaining wall, gravel and some pavers to service the sunken entry to our half basement. It was a challenging job, with very hard clay soil and a good deal of grading. The team did a great job. They listened to our direction and were flexible towards our design, even when it meant more work for them. We had a great experience with ME and would recommend highly.
