Great job

We hired Alex to edge our front lawn and relay the interlocking on our front walkway, a relatively small job. Of the three companies we were considering, he was the only one who gave us a clear picture of what he would do and the product he would recommend. He was also very responsive and always got back to me in a timely manner, something that the other two companies failed to do!
We are very pleased with his work and would highly recommend him and his crew.

Interlock Driveway, path, steps and retaining wall

Amazing crew. Alex provided a detailed quote. Made recommendations that improved the quality of the job. Provided great options for materials, and even looked around to get the best quality of stone for a great price.

We they demo'd and rebuilt existing steps at the back of our house. The new steps were built carefully, and look better than the original steps.

Then after seeing how nice our front walk way and steps looked, we asked Alex to quote for the retaining walls and driveway to be redone as well. Again, clear and detailed quote fair price.

His crew was excellent. They worked hard, carefully, and each evening when they left, always tidied up. The crew supervisor was so careful about all the measurements and cuts for the stone. The final product looks amazing.

Highly recommend.

Landscaping and fencing job

Alex was quick in responding to my request for a quote, setting up a timeline as well as getting in touch when work was underway. We needed to have an overgrown 700 sqf backyard cleaned, new grass put in, new fencing built, and patio stones laid. Alex's team completed the project in 3 days and exactly to what we had agreed to. I'm removing 1 star because they had left some garbage behind, but apart from that we are perfectly happy with the job done.

veranda

I originally met Alex and Muki after posting a request for help through Homestar’s. I had tried many contractors, but no one wanted to come out to even look at a job they felt would be less then $20,000. Muki came to see the veranda and listen to what I had to say. He reported back to Alex and they produced an affordable solution to situation that had been become more urgent as the days went by. They were amazing workers explaining everything they did, if they made a change Muki would let me know first and explain why.

I recently had the building inspector over and he noticed that the support beams were not done as the plans were written. I sent Alex and Muki a message, they were busy because of Covid-19, and the backlog of work it caused. I tried to reach them several times and unfortunately because of the condition of the veranda prior to Captain Handy coming to the rescue. I panicked when the building inspector said I needed another support beam. Muki stopped by this weekend, assured me that the roof was secured, and rather than installing the additional support beam he placed two, add extra screws

I would highly recommend them for anyone looking to upgrade their veranda, porch, or deck, I have had many compliments since they completed the job. I would definitely ask them back to help me again and have told other's about them.

New Stone Patio

We had an old cedar deck that needed replacing and Alex responded promptly to our request for a quote for both a replacement deck or a stone patio. He was very responsive as we went through the decision process. When it came time for the job, he and his team were on time and completed the the work in less than a week with stunning results.
They even took the time to replace the grass around the old deck with new sod and everything was cleaned up nicely. I would certainly recommend Alex and his team and we intend to use them for any of our future deck or patio projects.

Alex and his team came to our home and completed our patio in a very timely manner. He was very easy to work with and responded to all of our questions and concerns. They cleaned up everything and left us very happy with the job. They were fast and very friendly. They did a wonderful job with our patio space, we highly recommend him!

Install Fencing including Removal of Existing Bushes

I was happy with the work. They came when they said that they would, and got the job done quickly. The fence design was exactly as I requested. Alex was easy to work with, and the men doing the work were friendly and conscientious. I would certainly go with them again.

Front yard

Alex and his team arrived on time and did a great job on my front yard. They removed old steps and interlock and replace it with a beautiful flagstone and natural steps. We are very satisfied with their job. We will call you for our basement job as well.
Thank you
