Complete backyard reno

We used Green Apple for two projects at our north Toronto home. The first was a smaller project: building a parking pad and doing some front yard landscaping. The second was a much bigger project: a complete demolition and redesign of our backyard. We were extremely happy with the first project that Green Apple did for us so we didn’t think twice about retaining them for the second project. Our backyard presented more than a few challenges, the biggest of which was the fact that it contained an almost 45 degree slope. Green Apple came up with a design that was both practical and beautiful. They took the time to do things right the first time. No corners were cut. Peter’s crew was amazing. They were always available to address our concerns and they came to us immediately when unforeseen issues arose. And on a project as big as ours there were more than a few such issues. But each issue was presented to us with multiple solutions such that there was minimal impact to the budget, the timeline and the overall aesthetic of the finished product. We would highly recommend Green Apple.

Backyard Landscaping Project

This is the second time we have used Green Apple for landscaping work, both times we've been impressed and excited with the results that the Green Apple team came up with. This time, they took a relatively small backyard space and transformed it using plants, trees and lighting to make it a comfortable private space that begs you to spend time in it !. The additional lighting around the property that Peter's team suggested has garnered numerous compliments from neighbours and visitors, the team seems to have a knack for piecing together a cohesive package that is both pleasing to the eye and extremely functional !......we look forward to the next project !!

Backyard Reno

We recently used Green Apple Landscaping for a complete back yard transformation. We are absolutely delighted with the end result and would highly recommend Green Apple for the following 3 reasons:

1) COST -- We found the cost to be very reasonable, but more importantly transparent. We don't mind paying more for certain things that are important: great design (see further below), structural longevity and high quality materials. From the initial design phase and through every step, we had conversations with the knowledgeable Green Apple team to understand the alternatives and make the best informed choice. This distinguishes the average from the exceptional; we feel that Green Apple had the knowledge to know all the options along the cost spectrum and provide us with the information necessary to make our own decisions. We always felt we had choices in terms of prioritizing our spend.

2) GREAT DESIGN -- We have a very small city backyard that needs to serve multiple purposes. We had to have storage for a motorcycle and all the corresponding technical requirements involved in maneuvering a large piece of machinery through a tight space. We subscribe to an alfresco beach aesthetic, which is a fancy way to say we really wanted to maximize our green space. We had several quotes and numerous discussions with other landscapers to discuss our vision. Green Apple won us over with their focus on form and function. They were the only company to invest the time to take exacting measurements of our bicycles, patio furniture and BBQ, to look at the property from all sight lines and to have detailed conversations about the plants that we liked. The result is they have created a space for us that fully fits all our needs and our lifestyle.

3) QUALITY -- We feel that people who are passionate about what they do are the best kind of people. Green Apple fosters that passion in everyone who works there. Their people do the right thing just because it is the right thing to do. This comes through in the way they treat the job site as their own as well as the companies they select to deal with. The result is attention to every detail and high quality throughout.

If any of these elements are important to you, you cannot go wrong with Green Apple.

Thanks for the great review Gerry! It was a pleasure working for you and Megumi. The job looks great. I hope you enjoy it for years to come.

You did an amazing job staining your fence and shed, and your do-it-yourself designed and installed irrigation system really puts the commercial versions to shame.

Front yard parking pad and landscaping

Designed and installed front-yard parking pad and fully landscaped surrounding yard. Also several service jobs afterwards. Skilled, efficient, polite, professional, full service. Would highly recommend them for this kind of work in particular, as they were meticulous about fulfilling bylaw requirements etc. And they handled our grumpy neighbours with tact and patience as well. :

Front Yard Landscaping; Parking Pad

We hired Green Apple to landscape our entire front yard. This included a flagstone walkway, retaining wall, planting beds, irrigation system, and new parking pad. We were very pleased with both the process and the result. April, the designer, attentively listened to our concerns, wishes and needs and created a plan that looks great. The construction crew of Victor and Simon were hardworking, efficient, and professional. We would definitely recommend Peter Solti and Green Apple.

Ryan, I appreciate you taking the time to place a review. I know how busy you are. We are all very proud of the way your design turned out. The combination of materials with the permeable faux clay paver in the parking pad combined with the smooth sandblasted Eramosa flagstone for the walkway looks amazing. Suzie and you were great to deal with throughout the process, very thorough and open. Thanks for the great review!

Back Yard Landscaping

The GreenApple crew (Victor & Simon) did a wonderful job on our recent back yard landscaping project. The design and construction of the timber fences, retaining walls, deck and benches was particularly well done. Thanks also to Peter Solti and April Cotroneo for the project management and design work - a first class team effort all around. We are delighted with the finished product!

Green Apple had landscaped a friend of ours backyard and we were really impressed with their work that we called them to design our property. In our first meeting my husband had made three requests - the first was that we wanted a turnkey project, the second was not to cut our internet cable and the third was not to come back with a design that was over $100,000. Green Apple did break the third request, however we now have a beautiful new landscape that exceeded our expectations. The project in the backyard included a two level deck with the lower level meeting a hot tub, a large flagstone patio, fencing, planting, lighting, and an irrigation system. In the front yard landscaping we had a new flagstone driveway and walkway, facing of the existing porch with matching flagstones, low decorative walls, planting, lighting and a sprinkler system. We were really impressed with the crew. Victor and Simon are really professional and knowledgeable giving us confidence throughout the job that the project was being built to a high standard. We recommend Green Apple to anyone.

Thanks Laurie and Richard for the great review! Your project turned out great and it was fun working with you to create a great space in the backyard for your family and friends, and I think the curb appeal of the front yard was improved a lot. Peter

Back Yard Patio Design and Installation

This is the second time we have worked with Peter and his team and our experience was the same as the first. They are professional, honest, and most of all absolutely dedicated to quality. The latter is due to the culture of the organization and to their dedicated staff, particularly Victor and Simon, who work to ensure your complete satisfaction - they treat your place as if it was their own. If it is value for money you are looking for, this is the company for you.

Landscaping

We hired Green Apple to do the landscaping around our house, including a front and side walkway, driveway, back patio, planting and porch and are thrilled with Green Apple and the results. Peter and his team worked with us to come up with a design that we were happy with including the materials that would be used to complete the overall look. The Green Apple crew who arrived to execute the design were nothing short of fantastic. They were professional, friendly, polite (our neighbors were impressed) and just did great work. They treated our property, neighbourhood and the work as if it was their own - meaning, they took the care, diligence, time and attention to detail in executing the design as if they were putting this in on their own property. Throughout, they kept us informed and worked with us during the execution of the design to be sure that we got the result that we wanted (even if it meant making a slight change or tweak here and there). When the job was nearing completion, we told Peter that we would miss having his crew around and we meant it - our son even named a lego man after each of Victor, Simon, Dave and Dan! It was a treat to work with an organization that clearly values honesty and integrity and treats its customers in that manner. We would not hesitate to recommend Peter and his team and would hire them again in a second.

Thanks Kathleen for writing such a great review. My staff will be honoured to have a lego figure named after all of them. We really enjoyed working with you to create your landscaping makeover in the front yard and backyard of your home. The curb appeal of your house has definitely been improved, and the backyard is more functional giving you space for dining/BBQ and for lounging. The kids have a nice new lawn to play on. Enjoy your new landscape.

Backyard landscaping

We could not be happier with our experience with Green Apple. From initial meeting, thru design stage to project completion, everyone we dealt with was not only professional, but friendly. All had the same objective as my wife and I - to create the perfect backyard for our family's needs, while staying within our budget and project timeline. The end product is exactly what we wanted. The crew was very hard working and took the time to do the job properly, even when it meant working into the evening. We have already passed along Peter's contact info to several friends, and would not hesitate using Green Apple when the time comes to address the front yard.

Thanks for posting a review Dennis! I'm glad you were satisfied with the landscaping of your backyard. It was a pleasure to deal with you and Bernadette for the project. We all felt that yours was one of our nicest designs this year and we really like the results of the curved deck especially. Look forward to working with you again for the front yard landscaping sometime in the future.
