Our landscaping was in dire need of an overhaul, from falling down fences to uneven paths and patios that flooded during rainstorms.
Victor and his team started right from the most important basics, and regraded our entire backyard so that water would flow away from the house during storms, eliminating flooding issues. As part of this process, he built a beautiful steel retaining wall at the back and one side to accommodate the grade change.
Now for the fun stuff. Victor and his team laid a beautiful brick pathway right from the front sidewalk all the way around the house to our back parking at the laneway, with a stunning patio and room for sheds. The pathways and patio drain PERFECTLY, which is an impressive feat given the length from front to back of over 100 feet. They also installed heating underneath the side breezeway to eliminate our winter slip hazard, and installed an awning with a skylight and cedar shingles above our basement door to shield it from the elements while still providing plenty of light.
They rebuilt the fences and gates on all four sides of the backyard, and Victor was very helpful in dealing with our neighbours as we figured out the styles that we would all be happy with. They also rebuilt beautiful wide steps at the back of the house.
To top it off, they built a beautiful multi-functional cedar post and beam structure in the backyard, which we use to hang hammock chairs or a hammock from, and to hang a screen inside of for outdoor movies.
I could not be happier with how this turned out - I think the photos speak for themselves! Victor and his team were very easy to deal with through the entire process, and were always full of great ideas and helpful insights that made this project so spectacular (such as his suggestion to do extra wide back steps from the back of the house, which we sit on every morning with our coffee!)
I could not give a higher recommendation for Victory Carpentry, especially for a job as big as complicated as this one! This is my third project with Victor, and I look forward to the next one!
