Fence

This is one of the best companies I've had the pleasure of dealing with. I found them on homestars and checked out their website first. All the information I needed was on their site, it is very detailed. My neighbours still wanted to speak to Jay before agreeing to have him come and quote. Jay had no problem speaking with them and answering all their questions. Jay was prompt in coming over to measure our yard and provide an estimate. Once we confirmed the job, Jay scheduled us in for June. Since my wife is a big time gardener and looks forward to planting every year, Jay did us a huge favour and was able to move us up to mid May. Thanks Jay this was really appreciated. You have a fantastic work crew, they were all very nice and respectful of the property and neighbors and also taking time to answer questions about the job. Absolutely the best quality of fence and workmanship. I will certainly recommend you to anyone without hesitation.

Great Job on Neighbourhood Fence

We recently contracted Green Side Up to replace the fence surrounding our backyard. This required coordinating with several neighbors as we had shared fencing. Jay organized a walk through with all the neighbors, explaining the services they provide, materials and processes, as well as timelines. Shortly afterwards he followed up with individual quotes as well as a start date. Two weeks prior to start, a second walkthrough was performed with the project manager and locations for posts marked. The first day the crew showed up early to dismantle and remove the existing fence. On day two the Bobcat auger arrived. Despite the fact that the equipment was substantial, our soil conditions were terrible: heavy clay, filled with bricks, cement blocks, and boulders. After hours of attempting the dig at several different locations along the fence line, work was stopped. The crew had already contacted the office early in the dig to advise on the soil conditions and develop a backup plan. The team reached out to all the property owners to review the situation and advise that an excavator was scheduled for the next business day. The work was grueling and temperatures soared, but the crew dug-in (literally) working long hard days, and somehow managing to maintain pleasant dispositions. They provided regular updates as work progressed and took time at the end of each day to clean and organize the site. We are extremely pleased with the quality as well as the aesthetics of the fence. The crew were polite, and highly professional under a difficult situation. We’re very appreciative that the team could pivot so quickly and keep the build on schedule. We’re also delighted that despite the need for additional equipment and time, the budget was not impacted. We would highly recommend Green Side Up, we are delighted with the quality and workmanship of the final product.

Backyard fence

I want to thank Jay and his crew (Daniel, Cory, Travis and the others whose names I do not know) for their excellent service and workmanship.
Its never a good time to tear down and rebuild a fence, especially when you have a dog to deal with but as promised, I was not without a fence for too long.
I really appreciate all the hard work and will certainly recommend you to anyone without hesitation.

Backyard Total Revamp!

After Summer 2020 during the pandemic, we knew we needed a total backyard revamp in order to enjoy our space at home with our kids. We decided to install a pool, but we needed new deck, patio, and fencing. We wanted a trustworthy, experienced, and organized contractor for the job with good reviews. I'm so happy we found Jay and Green Side Up! Jay started working with us on a plan last Fall, and construction began in the Spring of 2021 as promised. We knew Jay was knowledgeable, professional, and also so friendly and personable. His reviews were excellent and we got everything we wanted. The quotes were fair, timing was reasonable, and his team was awesome to have working for us. Clean, attention to detail, friendly, fast, and a real pleasure to have in our yard. Our job was a big one, and lots of moving parts. Jay was constantly popping over, calling, checking in, to make sure we were happy and satisfied with the ongoing work. I highly recommend Jay and Green Side Up for all outdoor reno work, customer service was 100% and the work speaks for itself, it's high quality and perfectly constructed. Well done to Jay and his team, he's given us our DREAM BACKYARD! There's more to do at my house, and I'll be calling Jay! Best wishes.

Fence installation

Jay at green Side up was excellent to work with, he was able to successfully deal with four of my neighbors to arrange the fence installation and individually billed us.
The installation itself was difficult as the crew had to bring in a mini excavator to dig the holes for the posts due to the condition of our ground, Jay did not change the quoted price for this work.
Would recommend then to anyone looking for a any of the services they offer.

Total Privacy fence built while accommodating a pool install schedule

We decided to replace our existing standard builders fence as part of our pool installation a little late in the game. With all the various delays and schedule changes due to COVID, we were not sure if we would be able to find someone to install a fence, especially when many contractors were not even returning calls and already booked for the year.

We ended up searching HomeStars and came across Green Side Up. We checked out the Green Side Up website and were impressed with the details, the quick quote tool and left us with a good feeling. Usually, we ask around and try to get references from people we know for these kinds of things but time was not on our side. We took a chance and called Green Side Up and left a message. Jay returned the call quickly and was very professional. We mentioned the pool situation and that there would be a need for a second visit to complete the fence as we needed 3 sections left open for machines to access the backyard for excavation etc. We thought this is where we would lose Jay's interest in the job as coming back to put in 3 posts, 3 sections and some gates is more of a pain point. Instead, Jay worked with us on timing and fit us into his schedule! That was such a great thing to hear. We were happy.

Jay ended up giving us a quote after his site visit and also mentioned a site they recently finished with the same Total Privacy with I beam fence we wanted. We ended up driving out to the site and liked what we saw. We approved the quote shortly after that.

Fast forward to fence removal day. The crew showed up early in the day and worked a at good pace. Everyone was doing something all the time. Everything was being done in a professional manner. They were courteous, respectful and easy to talk to (we tried not to interrupt!). The fence was down with old posts cut down in one day. The new posts went in the next day. The post guys, which seemed to be a different crew, did a good job overall but, for one post, did go on the neighbour's side to use their hole auger machine. This caused some damage on my neighbour's lawn which I learned from my neighbour instead of the post guys. Jay's team acknowledged the situation and repaired the lawn.

We went with the Total Privacy fence with an I beam up top. The fence construction began a few days later to allow the posts to set. It took about 2 days to finish the fence with the majority of it being completed on day 1. The crew cleaned up after themselves as they went and were working with purpose. It already looked great.

When it came time to set a date to complete the last 3 sections and gates, there were some delays due to weather etc. Jay kept in touch via text and was very accommodating and understanding. We finally had a date range for the fence to be completed which happened to be just over a month since the initial fence went up. We tried to give Jay as much advanced notice as possible which ended up being only 2 days notice. Even with that, the Green Side Up team made things happen, showed up to put 3 posts in the morning and the rest of the fence and gates were done next day.

The fence and gates look fantastic. The backyard looks so much better with the new fence and we we are very happy with the privacy factor that the pool enclosure provides. We were nervous going with a company that we had zero experience with and not having any idea of how the job would end up. As we got into things, our concerns were squashed and confidence grew. Now that it is all done, I am very happy that we went with Green Side Up. They did a terrific job and we highly recommend!

Big Thumbs Up to Jay & the Green Side Up Contracting Crew

The end of March 2021 marked one year in our new townhome in East Gwillimbury, Ontario. Given the state of the pandemic we new that travel would likely be at a minimum this year. The alternative, make a place to enjoy at your own home. After contacting 10 landscaping companies and often getting the run around because of the size of our job, I met with Jay from Green Side Up Contracting.

Within 24 hours Jay got back to me to arrange a time to meet to discuss the project I had in mind for our courtyard. He provided excellent feedback and guidance as well as advice relating to the type of material I should consider for the project. A day after our meeting, he provided me with an estimate for the work and materials that did not change. The ideal scenario we planned out would see work begin in early May, but mother nature refused to adhere to our original timelines. Work commenced in mid June as the weather broke to give us a significant number of dry days (4 in a row) that allowed the work to be completed.

Jay's crew with Rob as the lead were prompt, efficient and openly communicated with me as to what was being done at the start of each day and at the end of each day. The open communication during the job, especially the willingness to explain and answer questions during the work day, resulted in a high level of confidence on my part that was equally matched by the professional workmanship that the crew provided.

I am extremely pleased with the end result and look forward to spending time enjoying our new courtyard.

Thank you Jay and Rob for a job well done!

Great Fence installation

We were referred to Green Side Up by a friend.
Job was for fence back length only, about 90 linear feet.
Once we reached out, the process was fast and efficient.
We had a visit, quote and were booked within a week.
Our installation was as scheduled except for some weather delay.
Crew was fast and did good quality work, leaving the property as they found it. Neighbour feedback was also very positive.
Cost was competitive.
Would definitely recommend.

Backyard Renovation

Jay was always responsive, patient and helpful. His team for the deck (Victor and Richard) were very attentive to detail and built a beautiful Trex deck. Daniel and his team blew us and the neighbours away with their efficiency and the amazing fence quality. We now love spending time in our backyard. We highly recommend Green Side Up Contracting.
