Backyard design and overhaul

After reviewing designs from a couple of other firms, a friend referred us to Eitan and Keren. In one sitting with us, Eitan understood better than we what would work in the yard, and we would not do anything differently! getting the project done during a Covid summer was no easy task, but the team navigated through the difficulties exceptionally. They were always friendly, very responsive, and really a pleasure to work with. We love the way it turned out, and for all the trades we've used over the years for construction and renovation, they are one of the few i would (and have) whoeheartedly recommend

Backyard Transformation

We used M.E. Contracting to fully transform our backyard. We are very excited to have our new pool right in time for the summer.
We did experience a delay with the pool arriving, though once it arrived the project ran fairly quickly. Daryl, the project manager is very responsive, was always there to answer any questions or concerns in a timely manner. His pool team is very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. Eitan the owner was regularly coming by to check on the progress and reassured us that we will be swimming before summer time. Our experience with M.E was very pleasant. We highly recommend using M.E for your backyard transformation.

Landscaping and Accessories

It was time to get the interlock replaced at our home and decided to move forward with M.E. Contracting. Daryl was very nice to deal with and we felt great about our decision. When I went to the showroom to pick stone... WOW! What an amazing showroom. I picked my lovely stone and a great fire table and my beautiful furniture. Dorit made the selections easy and I can't wait to sit by the fire when the weather turns chilly. Project complete - thanks all.

Pool and Full Backyard Renovation

I hired ME contracting to create my dream backyard and it completely lived up and exceeded my expectations. From the start, this company was being very professional and continued throughout the whole process of building backyard. I am very particular and detail oriented with what I want and they were able to do everything as planned and more. It was fast and all the workers were very kind and polite. Thank you Eitan and the team for the amazing work. See you next year for my front yard!

Backyard renovation

We are thrilled with the transformation of our backyard! It is a small yard, but Daryl and his team helped to create a fully useable and stylish space. The team was incredible to work with - great communication and attention to detail. They quickly helped turn our backyard into a space we LOVE entertaining in. Looking forward to working with them again soon when we tackle our front porch/yard. Thanks again!

Post Construction Landscaping

This company is very overrated. I am a detail oriented customer that has high standards and good knowledge. I have fully renovated a house and manage properties for a living. My project was completed, but the process and end result could have been better. They completed the landscaping throughout my entire property after we did a major house renovation.

I received nine different quotes prior to choosing M.E. The company was chosen because Daryl is good at responding to emails/calls and communicating/answering our questions. As well, the price was reasonable (relatively speaking). It was also a bonus that they were able to complete large parts of the job in the winter.
However, my relatively straightforward project was plagued with deficiencies throughout the entire process. The main reason this occurred was a lack of direct supervision and communication from management/supervisor to employees. This meant I needed to be quite involved in providing direction and calling out mistakes. A few examples of issues that should not have occurred, (all issues I had to find and were never caught by a supervisor)…
1) They almost installed the wrong polymeric sand, and then once they had the correct colour, they didn’t set it correctly so it all had to be re-done.
2) They didn’t install the correct curb stones/wall. I challenged them on this and they assured me it was the correct stone. It didn’t look correct to us, so I had to drive and hour away to where the stone was purchased. The stone yard confirmed we had the wrong stone. So begrudgingly Daryl had the wall taken out and reinstalled with the correct stone.
3) After giving explicit instructions to a supervisor as to the location of a fence post, they still installed it too close to my garage making siding replacement impossible.
4) They delivered the wrong gate three times.
5) The interlock had persistent settling issues throughout the spring/summer.
6) My concrete pad was poorly finished, and even after providing feedback as to what needed to be fixed, the installer gave up on trying to fix it.
7) They failed to correctly prepare the ground prior to laying sod, so the grass has struggled to grow evenly.

To their credit, all the easily fixable issues were dealt with eventually. However, it always required work and patience on my end.

Overall, we are relatively happy with the end result. Due to the state of the construction industry in the city, sadly this is probably the best you can ask for.

Fiberglass pool, Complete landscaping, irrigation, lighting and demolition of previously landscaped yard.

We cannot say enough about this amazing company! We hired M.E. contracting for the complete demolition of a fully landscaped yard, installation of a fiberglass pool, new stone pool deck, irrigation system, lighting, and shed. From it's inception, the project was well run - Daryl was our project manager - he is excellent, professional, and delivers exactly what he says he will. Eitan (the owner) and Casey were phenomenal as well and onsite when the pool arrived and assisted in its instillation. Mike and his team completed the stonework, lighting, and irrigation in record time and kept the site and our street clean and orderly for the neighbors. Freddy and his pool team did an excellent job with the pool education and cleaning, and helping us navigate the automated system. Next the carpenter Alex was the most precise and careful carpenter we've ever had - the shed is exquisite. Finally, their electrical team (Dean and colleagues) were polite, efficient and helpful in every way. My husband and I have done several large renovations and have never had things go smoothly, with appropriate timing and professionalism. The did a truly incredible job! You won't regret going with them for your project!
