Summer 2020 was brutal on our lawn! Being a 20 yr. property and having re-sod our lawn once before, this summer really took its toll on our lawn. The drought basically killed our lawn - no matter how much I tried to water, I just could not recover our lawn from dire straits.
I use HomeStars for my home improvement/repair needs and I searched for landscaping companies in Markham. I received responses from several companies, however Sean @ Lemon Tree Landscapes was the quickest to respond both for the initial contact and with a full on quote. Sean communicated very promptly whenever I had a question and ultimately they had the best pricing as well. Their quote was a full featured offer, listing all steps & services included with their quote and all warranties. They even included several tips for prep.
On the scheduled day, Nick & his crew arrived earlier than scheduled and quickly went over the procedures with me regarding the work to be done. Nick also confirmed boundaries and provided some options regarding finishes around our two trees. Once that was settled, they quickly went to work. The crew was swift and thorough, tilling the existing remaining lawn into the soil and adding several inches of brand new soil. Once the soil was rolled, they immediately started rolling out the new sod. Nick's crew kept everything tidy and there was very little residue left. Once they completed the project, Nick explained briefly what I had to do for the next 4 weeks. Both the front and back (approx. 900 SF) were completed in less than 2 hours! Keep in mind that this was all performed during August in 35 deg. C, with no cloud in site during the hottest time of the day!!!
Sean followed up with a comprehensive instruction sheet, explaining watering techniques and proper lawn care. The lawn after 3 weeks looks SPECTACULAR!!! 99% of the seams have disappeared and the grass overall is so healthy and robust! We were a little worried about the timing, but with Sean's help we were able to maintain the new sod with amazing results! I've included before and after pictures (I decided to wait the three weeks and cut the lawn before I submitted my review). This is by far the best lawn we've ever had - I can't tell you how many compliments we've received so far! I tell everyone who we used and highly recommend Lemon Tree Landscapes for their services. A big THANK YOU to Sean, Ian, Nick and the crew for an AMAZING job well done! To have the BEST new lawn, I HIGHLY recommend Lemon Tree Landscapes. They will get the job done with the highest results for the BEST price!
