Amazing results

"WOW" is the only way to describe the results. From my first contact with the staff at Instant Lawn they have been professional and attentive to my requirements. They went above and beyond what I asked. Their attention to detail and their desire to please their clients surpassed all my expectations. Thank you Jacob and the rest of the staff for making this experience a pleasant and satisfying one. I would highly recommend Instant Lawn for your sodding and interlock needs. You won't be disappointed.
The "WOW" factor gets a 10 out of 10. Great job guys.

Landscaping Pry

Jacob and team finishes a landscaping project including significant debris removal, cleanup, rock beds/lining, grading and top soil. It was a large project (approx 90x140’) and they completed it in less than two work days. We were extremely pleased with the final results; the workers were very professional; and the price was very competitive (received 5 quotes in total). We also opted for a sprinkler system and hydroseeding from another company (NCI) and they coordinated/alligned their work accordingly. I would highly recommend their services.

Backyard regrading, sod, backstep, and pathway

Instant Lawns did a beautiful job, at a fabulous price, in just one day! The entire process from initial contact to project completion was less than a month (in the middle of the summer), and we were impressed with the professionalism and hard work of the entire IL team. We're already talking about what we'll get them to do for us next year.

Back yard levelled and new sod installed

Lucas was most helpful and all dealings with this company were dealt with in a professional and courteous manner. The crew arrived early and were friendly and efficient, double-checking our wishes when necessary. They were respectful of our new drive and cleaned up after they had finished the work. We were left with clear instructions, which we followed to a tee, and love our back yard. Thanks guy for for a job well done!

We've already recommended them!

Front yard complete makeover

I got quotes from 5 different companies to re-sod our front lawn, and the decision to give the job to Instant Lawns was an easy one. They were always professional, on-time, and willing to extensively customize the job based on our changing needs. They are not just a lawn company, but also a full landscaping business, with extensive landscape design experience. That design knowledge came in handy when deciding how to modify our current layout while keeping the mature elements and staying within our budget. The crew that performed the work was second to none, and was joined throughout the day by the designer/estimator/co-owner. They completed the job in one day, as promised, and the result was exceptional.

Sod and Grading (French Drain)

My backyard had a major grading problem. Lucas and his entire team went above and beyond to help me. I am extremely satisfied with the finished product - even more with the French drain and attention to detail below to get the grading perfect.

I would highly recommend instant lawn.

xxx STAY AWAY xxx

Poor management from start to finish... not only was the scheduling process absolutely horrendous, but the delays after delays were more than I could handle. I'm also quite intrigued by the fact that the most recent 5 star google review is from one of their own employees, I know this because I just happened to be speaking to 'Dylan' during my installation (Let's see if his review is removed or name changed after my review is posted :P ). I hired them because of the abundance of good reviews over bad, but now I see that the reviews are not all honest reviews, who knows how many are faked? For a company that markets themselves as more professional than the rest of the contractors out there, they sure left me wishing I had gone with someone more professional.

replacing grass backyard with clover and sedum for maintenance free lawn

Very much appreciated that you offer alternatives to the traditional grass lawn. The installation was efficient & quick. Smart to have 7 workers come & complete everything in 1.5 hours which minimized neighbourhood parking challenges.
