John has a "if you're going to do it, do it right" mentality, and it really shows in the quality of his work.
We originally engaged John to do some stonework for our (very small) backyard. He challenged our original design idea and suggested an alternate design, which would give us more usable space and require very little/no maintenance. We followed his lead and couldn't be happier with the result. The stonework is exceptional, he was fast and left no detail overlooked. He parged a portion of our foundation where we had water coming in before laying the stone down, and we have had no water issues since. Our backyard is now like an extension of our house - we use it more than we ever have before.
We were so pleased with the work John did in the summer 2020 that we engaged him to do our front yard in spring 2021, which involved landscaping, removing and old wooden retaining wall, replacing it with stone and creating a curved walkway for us to store and roll our garbage/recycling bins on. He ensured that water drainage issues, and went above and beyond, helping us with odd jobs around the interior and exterior of our home. We've received many, many compliments from neighbours!
