Front and Backyard Interlocking and Landscaping

Gus and his team had done a great job on our project. He is willing to spend time in putting together a great design that fits our budget. We had some malfunction coping lights after being installed for a few months and he assured us action will be taken to fix the issue. We are very pleased with his follow up service.

Hi Carmen, Clayton
Thanks for taking the time to write a review about your experience with our services . I know you wanted to wait for two years to write a review about your experience and results , and until our two year warranty is finished on all of your hardscape work.
Last year one of the back yard trees *( red bud ) didn't make it and we sent a crew and had it replaced shortly after you emailed us that it's dead .
One of the coping light fixture has stopped working as you have advised this winter and I did promise that we will change it and replace it even if the warranty is expired or over .( we're hoping to do so shortly when the weather permits ) .
We will make every effort to hopefully try to keep our good customer satisfied with our services and work ,since we believe that a happy customer will bring us a repeat or a referral business and that is what we strive to do.
Many thanks and hope you enjoy your front and back yard for years to come .

Great design and execution

Very satisfied with the service. Gus has great ideas, both practical and good looking. Completed on time and budget. You’ll get many compliments. All of the paintings survived and thrived, even though we had some heavily shaded areas.

Driveway, front yard and Backyard

We interviewed around 5 contractors for the landscaping work of our front and back yards as well as the driveway. Gus stood out from all of them through his proposal of detailed breakdown of each tasks within this project. He showed us his great knowledge and understanding through various recommendations, which are proven to be total "making sense". His team completed the job exactly as what was designed and we expected with high quality and great details. All my friends love the look and feel of the landscaping. In addition to that, Gus also provided great after sale service. He came to fix some issues came out after the project proactively. He makes sure the dollar you spent on the projects are well worth it. We highly recommend you consider Sogreen for the big project you are going to have for your house.

Hi Scott , Bruce
It was a pleasure working with you on your front , back and side of the house project . I am so pleased that you to meet you last weekend during my visit to seeing a prospect customer close to your area . The hardscape material selected is looking great after close almost to one year of wrapping this job . The plants they barely start to bloom . For sure when all the plants are in full bloom this summer I will drop by and take a picture for both front and back and add it to our portfolio and to this review .
It was great working with both of you and I hope you enjoy your home outside for years to come .
Have a great summer , Gus

Hi bassima , Michael
Many thanks for this great review , and thank you for taking the time after almost 2 years or more since we have finish the job.
It Was great working with you and Michael on your backyard , and I'm glad that we were able to transform Almost unuseable backyard to a levelled back yard with lots of green space , a shed area and all this is due to building a Main retaining wall facing the ravine at height close to the existing side walkway height and making it levelled and usable . Hope you enjoy it for years to come . Thank you
Gus

Backyard entertaining area completed in 2008

The design brief was to create an entertaining area for 8 people. Go Green designed a sophisticated 20x20 foot area with ewe, boxwood and existing cedars defining the space. A river birch was added along with curbing, pea gravel and staggered stepping stones. They created a stunning oasis in my backyard just steps from Bloor Street that still looks great 20 years later!

Interlock front, side and backyard with retaining wall, plus landscaping

Gus and his team did professional job within budget with beautiful workmanship. Their work included excavating and replacing previous patio stones. In addition to installing new interlocks in the front, side and backyard patio, Gus also put up a retaining wall with a water management system. Final touches include some landscaping work as well as fence repairs.

Hi Michel , Jian

Many thanks for taking the time to write this great review ,The years do pass by fast it feels like yesterday. I remember our initial meeting when we all started putting this project together , gathering the information from you in regards to your wish list, needs , privacy , featured required , Material selection ,as well to having your house and back yard facing a beautiful conservation area and not blocking this natural view and beauty . It was a very challenging job and I keep telling my new prospective customer that a good design and great project comes to reality
*( Alive) only if the customer helps and work closely with his/her designer during all phases of the project from design , execution , planting , material selection , outdoor furniture....etc. And you and Jian were those customers . It was a pleasure working with you on all phases of this amazing project.
I do recall one small part of this project when we tried out sourcing the bamboo and we couldn't find any supplier close by and one day during the project you and jain found a supplier somewhere in Cambridge , Burlington ...!, and you came to me saying hey gus we found a supplier however , we will need a long van or vehicle to get them to site. And I recall you wanted to hand select them one by one and not have the supplier deliver them randomly. So we decided to empty the tools out one of our van and have you both drive out west to get those Bamboo. That day made me realize that being a good landscape design/build is important , but what makes the project even better is having a meticulous customer that cares about the slightest details , colors and all elements of the project to blend together well..... and that's all because of you ... thank you .
Best wishes in 2018, cheers
