Replace old lawn with new sod

I am so impressed with the quality of the work done on my lawn. It was meticulous. The guys who worked on my project were hard working, polite and helpful. I am blown away by my new lawn and highly recommend this amazing crew from Ottawa. It looks better than I could have dreamed possible. Many neighbours have commented on how nice things look and I think Instant Lawns will be getting some calls soon.

Resodding of front and rear lawns.

Our lawn ‘died’ from a very harsh summer. We opted to have irrigation installed (by others) then used Instant Lawns to remove and replace our grass. The price was better than other estimates received. Their work was excellent, workers were pleasant and respectful of our property and they coordinated very well with the irrigation company. Topsoil and sod appear to be excellent quality. Highly recommended!

Artificial Turf Install

Originally we had contacted Instant Lawns to get sod installed in our backyard but when we saw the high quality artificial turf that was available, we changed our plans. Much more expensive than sod but we saw it as a good fit for the area we were working with as well as our lifestyle (who wants to spend the summer watering, mowing and weeding?). Lucas and his team were awesome! The job got done in one day. All the mess from the soil and gravel was cleaned up afterwards. We are so happy with the job they did and now want to spend time in the backyard. Thanks Instant Lawns!

Fast Sod Installation

Instant Lawns did a very good job to install sods to my front yard. They are easy to communicate with and they installed the lawn very fast and with good quality. We are happy with their service.

Replacement of front and backyard

Lawn installed May. Weeds appeared in lawn because of poor top soil. Took weeks to get anyone to replay. Lawn replaced late August. Cost me 200 more in water charge. Their mistake I paid! No effort to compensate.
Also promised to remove stones from backyard- not done. Lawn was to be fertilized for free. There designated company called no free service but wanted me to pay for a package to upkeep lawn.
Use this company at your own risk!
I have pictures!
Just a horrible horrible experience!

Awesome experience!

From start to finish, my experience with Jacob and Instant Lawns was wonderful. Incredibly professional, very responsive, and able to deliver a fantastic result, this is a company I would recommend without hesitation.
Instant Lawns installed new sod in our backyard, and the result was top notch. The crew was polite, respectful of the property, and did a great job of clean up afterwards.
