I’ve spent so much time trying to bring my backyard back to life. It’s always had issues with weeds and the grass just wasn’t able to grow because there’s a park in the backyard. I also had a new tree that started growing from animals bringing berries and seeds and I pretty much didn’t have any patio space. So every day I was spending hours just working on the weeds.
So I finally decided to get my backyard completely redone. I had an idea of what I was looking for and called several companies for quotes. When I contacted Oaks Home Services, I got a great feeling right away from Tim. He called me back right away and asked if he could come and see the backyard to give a quote. Based on that meeting I decided to go with Oaks. We talked through some ideas and he gave me different price points so that I could decide how I wanted to proceed.
The job was a challenging one because the only access through my backyard is through my house and I had to get permission for the team to go through my neighbour’s backyard and then ultimately pay for any repairs which I was fine with and luckily my neighbour gave me the ok.
Tim was so amazing to work with...he was always patient with all my questions and was very responsive. He always gave great ideas and his opinion on things that I hadn’t even considered...for example a flat stone vs textured. Ultimately I went with textured based on his recommendation. The job consisted of removing my old small patio and building a bigger patio, resod the lawn, remove a tree and clean up all of the rogue branches and remove the twigs, and put in a flower bed.
On the first day I also decided to get a new fence which wasn’t planned and Tim had to search for lumber. He didn’t get annoyed and began his search. The guys showed up on time at 8am every day and they worked with minimal breaks until 8pm. Such amazing work ethic! They also answered any questions that I had as they were working on different aspects. These guys work hard! And do such great work! You can tell that they take great pride in their work...it’s like they’re working on their own property.
I had read the reviews by others and it’s all true what people say about Tim and the team. I can’t even begin to tell you how impressed I was with them. I don’t recommend many people but I would definitely recommend Oaks Home Services!!!! I LOVE my new backyard. It looks so clean, fresh, and amazing! People walk by admiring it. I’m now so proud of my backyard vs being embarrassed by it before. The part that I was the most worried about was the repairs to my neighbour’s yard but they also did a fantastic job repairing and replacing anything that the machines went over.
I attached a picture of before and the other three pictures are what it looks like now. A complete transformation!!! Now I get to enjoy relaxing in my backyard.
I know I probably said amazing so many times....but I really mean it....they are amazing and I’m truly thankful to Tim and his team for everything!
