Great Service

We went through a number of lanscaping companies, designs and quotations before deciding to go with Fortis. Their team was professional, on time and on budget.

It was refreshing to see a company like this after so many problems with other parts of our project.

They exceeded expectations and made extra efforts on the finishing touches which made the project a success.

Their Scope:
Allan Block Retaining Wall and Stairs
3 Cedar Hedges
1 Yew Hedge
Cedar Fencing
Two Planting Areas
Concrete Driveway, Walkway and Back Patio
Front and Back Laws
Storm Drainage System
Lots of other bits

Thanks Dennis! It was a pleasure landscaping the yard and installing the walls and walkways, to compliment the rest of your renovations. The house looks great!

Backyard reno

We recently used Fortress for our backyard reno. We had three quotes from three different companies and were most impressed with both the price tag and the Knowledge/communication with Chris from Fortress. He was very clear at explaining the process of how the reno would be completed and answered all our questions very thoroughly. He really took the time to make sure that we had a clear understanding of the work that was to be completed and what the end product would be. He also offered different options (materials and price points) for the work that we were having done. We had our back yard extended, a new fence and retaining wall installed, two pads built for a shed and an above ground pool and river rock brought in. We found the crew to be friendly, efficient and respectful and they did a great job cleaning up and the end of each day. We have already recommended Fortress to several friends and anticipate using them again for future projects. Call them for a quote...you won't be disappointed!

Total yard make over

I used Chris and his team at Fortress for a total make over of my outdated 1980s style yard. Living on the side of a mountain is a challenge as the yard has several tiers on a fairly steep slope. While I had an idea as to what I wanted to do, Chris was really helpful in providing ideas and directing the project to create a whole new updated look at a fraction of the cost other landscapers were quoting. Being mindful of water run off and safety Chris ensured that we would not have any water ingress problems and that the work would last a lifetime. Our project was inclusive of driveway retainer, three massive tiers and new stairs on one side and a great outdoor kitchen/bbq area with more retainers on the other. Blocks and pavers look great! His team were diligent, polite hard workers who through rain, sleet and snow completed the project in an efficient and professional way. In an industry where contractors are not always known to be reliable or even reasonable, I would state that Chris and his team at Fortress are the exception. Special mention and shout out to Brian our foreman and taskmaster who kept things moving and ensured all was on track and done to our exacting preferences! I would not hesitate to recommend Fortress to anyone planning a landscaping project. My neighbours are so jealous, they too are planning to hire Fortress for their total yard makeovers!

I'm glad you are satisfied with the finished project. The Valley Stone retaining walls were definitely a challenge to plan out, due to the limited machine access, but the crew worked hard to get them in (even with the 8-12" of snow we battled through construction....tarps, tarps and more tarps!). We have already been contracted to complete a similar project for your next door neighbour - thank you so much for the reference, and the business!

New landscaping project

Chris and his crew completed a full landscaping project on our new build which included retaining walls front and back, stairs and sidewalks, a parking pad, patio, lawn and all shrubs and trees. Chris was very engaged in the project and provided advice and readily answered all of my questions. He advised on placement and sizes of trees and shrubs which were all of high quality. His crew kept the job site very tidy and completed the work in a timely manner. His quote was transparent and there were no surprises in the final billing. Chris is clearly a very experienced landscape contractor and it showed in the great work he and his crew did for us.

We enjoyed working with you on your dream home! The modern landscape design we worked with was a fun one to install. And having some creative input on the final bedding areas and plants is always nice for us. Thank you for your business!

Pavers and retaining walls

Fortress did landscape work for us in the fall of 2018. It was a difficult project including outside steps & landings to the lower level, retaining walls and redoing the foundation tile drainage. They did an outstanding job during bad weather and we are very happy with the results. We asked them to do some additional work during construction and they were very helpful and priced it reasonably. We don't hesitate to recommend Fortress as a first class landscape contractor.

The weather definitely gave us a run for our money, but we don't leave projects incomplete! And we are always happy to take care of any extras during the course of construction - that is to be expected/accomodated on our end, during any renovation. Thank you for your business Peter!

Landscaping

We have used this company twice and their work has included the install of country pavers, fixing our fence, building gates/arbours, providing sod and plants. Chris and his crew are professional and hardworking. They offer competitive pricing and their service is timely. I would highly recommend them to anyone. I am so happy the way our jobs worked out . They always go the extra mile.
