The work of Joshua and Harbord Valley Landscaping came highly recommended to us and we are very pleased with the work he and his crew have done for us. The job involved the shared back wall and fence of two homes. We are all pleased with the construction and also waste removal of old cement wall and fence.
Joshua and his crew were always pleasant and the work was done in good time. He was open to suggestions and offered ideas that pleased us. We would have no hesitation hiring him for another job.
This is our second time working with Josh the owner of Harbord Valley Landscaping. Our first experience was one met with tremendous satisfaction. Now having hired him a second time that satisfaction has only been cemented due to his professionalism, craftsmanship and job site management. We look forward to working with again in the future.
Great to work with you again Brandon.
We were very impressed with Josh and Harboured Valley from the first visit. Josh approached the entire project from design to construction with honesty and professionalism. Josh made recommendations, was happy to fine-tune the design to meet our needs, and made our project a pleasant experience.
We were very happy with the timeline of the project, and Josh's team was professional and helpful. They also seemed to be great friends, lots of laughter while getting the job done.
The end result was a complete transformation. Our backyard had been a rundown mess, and is now a great space for us. We would highly recommend Josh and Harbord Valley
We are extremely satisfied with the work Joshua and his team did in our backyard and driveway. The project was done within budget and on time. It was smooth, the crew was amazing, professional, nice and fast workers. I felt completely at ease with them working in our home and very confident the results were going to be great. Our backyard looks stunning and we feel like being there all the time. We love it!!
We laid a fairly small stone patio in our backyard (~10x10ft). The crew showed up on time day of, did a great job, and left us a wonderful product. The budget was adhered to, and we've been assured a lifetime warranty.
Our only complaint - and I'm sure this is quite typical amongst landscapers - is that it took them a really long time to schedule our job. We contacted them initially in April, but they didn't get to our house until mid-June.
Overall, we're very satisfied, though.
We had interlocking brick done. The crew was extremely professional. They did an outstanding job and did exactly what was quoted on. I would highly recommend using Harbord Valley Landscaping. Out of all the companies that I have used for various jobs at my home, this one is one of the best! Great job!
I am extremely satisfied with Josh's advice, his workmanship and attention to detail. This is the fourth job he has done on the street and I'm sure everyone is as pleased with his work as I am.
Two years ago we bought a house we really liked, partly because it had an unusually large backyard. We spent the first year upgrading the inside of the house, and we didn't get as much use out of the backyard as we could have anyway. Then our kid arrived and the closer he gets to walking, the more urgent it became to replace the crumbling fence on one side, the rotting deck with the tons of mysterious dirt underneath it, the gondola that had also become a safety hazard with boards warping and nails jutting out, a messy crabapple tree greatly beloved by the neighbourhood raccoons...
We looked for landscapers highly rated on this site, and Josh came up. He came last year to give us a quote, and told us that if we were demolishing the deck, we might like to have a stone patio and stone stairs, which sounded pretty good. Then we had some blips with funds and had to do some plumbing work, so we ended up waiting an extra year.
Josh came back and his crew, including Mike, Mack, and another great guy whose name I don't remember, worked for two weeks on this project, dealing with various surprises with ease: once the dirt under the deck was removed it turned out the foundation needed parging; there were several surprisingly thick slabs of concrete set up around the yard that had to be destroyed, etc. The end result is not especially fancy, because that is what I wanted - a simple, usable backyard with tons of play space, and that's what I have now. The price was completely fair for the work. Surpassed my hopes.
In 2014 Josh and his team gave our backyard a complete overhaul and we're thrilled! To make the backyard bigger, they pushed the fence back, relocated the path, installed an interlock path and patio, made a small garden with a retaining wall, relocated a cedar and planted a new maple tree, and put down sod. In addition, they re-built our upper deck completely, redesigning it to make it more functional, bigger, prettier, and safer. The project was then finished by refacing all of the existing fence panels to match. We're very much enjoying our new backyard as a nice space to relax, entertain, and a safe, fun place for the kids to play.
