I contacted a few contractors for my project of redoing our backyard patio, backdoor walk out steps, and side path. Of 3 companies who provided quotes, Peter from Avanti spent the time to highlight potential areas where retaining would be needed, and worked with me on the design I had provided. They were working on additional projects in my area which I took the opportunity to take a look before committing.
Communication of timelines was clear and much quicker than anticipated. The crew started at the end of July and quickly completed the required disposal, digging and worked with me on placing concrete footers in specific locations for my planned Yardistry Gazebo install, as well as digging trench for electrical conduit.
The work team, led by Chan and Anton were stellar. They consulted me on details, were extremely thorough and delivered excellent work in laying down the new patio. Peter checked in periodically during the project, and given their excellent work on the back patio, I added additional work to the project to relay a portion of my existing front drive interlock where stones had sank near the sidewalk and collected water.
The project was completed rapidly, with the follow-up work by Marco and his colleague (apologies, forgot his name!) on the walkout steps and railing were completed solidly with time spent to ensure both function and appearances (note I requested the open stair fronts pictured due to the basement window located under the steps).
I've already recommended Avanti to my neighbours and friends looking to do landscaping or hardscaping work and would definitely utilize them again in the future.
