As a family, we decided we did not want the hassle of a cottage and cottage traffic, so we decided to build an oasis in our back yard. We met and received quotes from multiple contractors. Not only was Green Side Up's quote competitive, the owner, Jay was easy going and personable from the very beginning. In the end, we are so happy we chose Jay and his team. Jay was very helpful and knowledgeable, and the lines of communication were always open. We really felt that he wanted to make the backyard exactly how we wanted it. Jay, his foreman Matt and the entire crew were very polite, tidy and really cared about getting the job done right.

The focal point of our new backyard is the 30' Viking Majesty pool. The custom built cedar cabana includes a bar area with a fridge, a wooden counter top on two sides, a cedar-smelling change room, a storage area and accent lighting. The custom built stone BBQ with counter tops, gas grill, drawers and cupboard will allow us to host some of the best barbecue parties with family and friends. As the winter season has arrived, we have already enjoyed the sauna and the hot tub, they provide a resort-like feel. No detail was overlooked from the Dekko fire pit and seating area to the shrubs and plants.

The photo was taken in November, so the pool is covered, and there is no furniture out, but the backyard is still beautiful to look at out from our kitchen window.

Thank you Jay and your team for turning our backyard into the awesome getaway we always dreamed of.

I really appreciated the fact that Green Side Up Contracting was able to fit me into a busy pre-Christmas schedule. Both my dog and I are really enjoying the freedom the fence brings and it looks great, too!

We hired Jay and his crew to replace our front and back desks. They provided us with a quote at a decent price, and the crew were knowledgeable, reliable, professional, and friendly. We appreciate the speedy completion time on our decks as the weather was quickly becoming cooler. Abel and Chris worked hard to get the job done as quickly as possible.

The decks are beautiful and exactly what we were looking for. Excellent job to everyone, thanks guys!

Jay and his entire crew were wonderful to deal with. They were clean, knowledgeable, on time and did a great job. We were thrilled with all of their suggestions and the quality of the work and materials that were used. We look forward to the spring when we can plant some annuals and pots, in order to have the entire look complete! Thanks again to the entire team for a job well done.

Jay at Green Side Up met with us and recommended a landscape designer and then provided us with a detailed estimate. The work was done efficiently, with care and on-schedule with daily updates from Josh and regular check-ins from Jay. We especially appreciated this constant communication and willingness to answer any and all questions. Jay and his team have a very positive and helpful attitude! We look forward to using them again next summer for our backyard project.

I can’t say enough about how thrilled we are with our backyard transformation. It went from an old sagging deck and mainly unusable space to a stunning oasis for my family. Jay and his crew were amazing every step of the way. Their carpentry was top notch and they built us a gorgeous deck and pool cabana but the “crowning glory” is our awesome pool. We chose the St Lucia model and the install went so smoothly. jay and his team offered several recommendations for the stone around the pool and I’m so glad we went with their suggestions. Everyone who has come by comments on the gorgeous stone we chose. jay’s crew was so lovely - polite, unbelievably hard working and they take real pride in their work. The foreman Matt was a real pro - he ran his team and site like clockwork. You can see how well we got along from our final picture together. As a homeowner I’ve dealt with many contractors and I can honestly say none has been so responsive and transparent as Jay. He answered every message from me almost immediately and if he didn’t have the answer he always said he would get back to me as soon as he knew the answer and he did just that - every time. Our project required a lot of trust in Jay and his company and we were not disappointed. He and his crew also re-did our front driveway interlock and our house looks brand new. Our family was in the pool non stop from the day it was completed and loved every minute of it. The local pool service/supply company came by today to close it and they were blown away by the job Jay had done. The technician said it was one of the best pool projects he has seen (and obviously they see a lot). Thank you so much Jay and Greenside Up for turning our backyard into an oasis we never want to leave.

Hi Lori,

On behalf of the entire team, thank you so very much for putting your trust in Green Side Up. As you know this is something I take very seriously.

Your project was a fun, challenging and very interesting project to work on. It was very gratifying for us all to take your back yard and turn it to a beautiful oasis!! The pictures will end up in the centre of an industry magazine, come late winter.

You were SUPER AWESOME to work with, and I sincerely thank you for your business, your support, your trust and for referring us to your close friend!

After Jay and team completed my backyard patio in the spring, I had them back to replace the fence along the side of my house. They were able to replace the fence, including 5 posts and a gate, in just one day. And it turned out great!

The entire team did a great job. We had the existing structure demolished and a new stone patio, pergola and fence added. Some of the nicest stonework I have seen. Pictured below is the stone inlay. (Matt likes a challenge.) They were quick to address and correct any small issues. If you are going to do a big project, don't cheap out. A retaining wall or weeping tile can make a huge difference. If you have challenges in the future, chances are that's the price you pay when you don't pay full price. Having a team like Green Side Up that understands how the materials will behave, will certainly increase the longevity and beauty of your investment.

Mr. Jameson,

Since the first time I met you and Tina, last October, through the winter and into early spring while talking through the final architectural designs, I knew that this project was going to be a fun project and more importantly, I knew that you both were going to be great people to work with!!

Here is a short video I took of your project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IndzStuOcII

On behalf of Matt and team, we want to thank you very much for your hospitality and generosity while building your project, and I personally want to thank you very much for putting your trust into the Green Side Up Contracting team, and I also wanted to thank you very much for your kind words and for your business.

Perhaps you will invite us back in 2018 to install Tina's dream pool ;-)
