Backyard Patio

We found Ashlar Landscapes on Homestars and were impressed by all the reviews, so we decided to give them a try. Daimon offered a free estimate (unlike other ones we contacted before) which was a big plus, and upon meeting him, we found him to be very honest, knowledgeable, and straightforward with what can and can't be done. We also offered very good design choices and options, and later presented us with a quote that was clear, concise and let us know what was included. He was also very accomodating to our follow-up questions and requests to visit.

We definitely do not regret our decision to go with him. In the space of less than a week, we has able to complete all the work we agreed upon (replaced the old back patio with a bigger, more modern one; made a huge side garden bed; repaired the front walkway...among others). Daimon and the guys were totally dedicated to the job - they started on time (if not earlier) and stayed until they finished what needed to be done that day (which took them past 5:00 some days). They were good in communicating ahead of time if there was a possibility that they may need to reschedule things due to the weather. The finished product was incredible! We're definitely in love with the patio now and find ourselves spending a lot more time there.

We are very happy with Daimon and Ashlar Landscapes, so much so that we've asked him back to do some more work for us this fall. Thanks and looking forward to seeing you then!!!

Interlocking Patio in Backyard

Last year we had Daimon of Ashlar Landscape (formerly Forest Hills Design Group) install an interlocking walkway and entrance steps at the front of our home. We were so delighted with the finished product that, this year, we asked Daimon to install a patio in our backyard. Because of a family event we requested a pretty tight timeline. Daimon worked with us to create a beautiful design and made suggestions regarding stonework selection for under our elevated deck which saved us considerable expense and blended wonderfully with the upgraded stone we selected for the main patio area. The combination of the stone created a wonderful contrast. Daimon and his crew shifted approximately 35 tonnes of extremely heavy clay from our backyard to ensure the depth was sufficient to support the installation. This was removed via a steep slope, by wheelbarrow over a 3 day period. Daimon, Brett and John worked non-stop in intense heat to keep the project on track. As was our experience last time, Daimon was very flexible to adjustments to the design so that, when the project was completed, we were totally blown away by the transformation to our backyard. We now have a space that is perfect for entertaining and has greatly increased the value of our home. We had 30 guests enjoy the patio this past weekend and everyone commented on how beautiful our yard looked. Daimon is without doubt one of the most professional, flexible, client service-orientated contractors we have ever had the pleasure to work with. If you are looking for a talented craftsman, a dedicated and hardworking crew, and seek a transformation to your current space at an honest and highly competitive cost -- you have just finished reading about the perfect company to handle your landscape project. We are already planning for next year and our one and only call will be to Daimon.

Stone work

I had cruised through Homestars looking for a recommended landscape contractor to tear down a raised stone deck and rebuild the staircase and add a new stone patio at ground level. I had read the reviews of many contenders but only two responded to my plea ! Pricing was critical and i needed to stay on budget as i had many projects to finish this spring and summer season to meet the deadline of a family wedding.
Daimon came to visit to view the scope of the job and made a quote within 48 hours. What impressed me was that Daimon was willing to reuse some of the orginial stone from the old structure to try to save cost. I am most pleased with the end result and Daimon quoted price never waivered. His crew were prompt and cleaned the site everyday. Thank you Daimon it was a pleasure!

front walkway and gardens

I hired Daimon recently to landscape the front of my house. His quote was in line with others but I was impressed with his enthusiasm and knowledge. I had to wait a couple of extra weeks for him to start but it was worth it. The finished product is great. The walk looks terrific and the couple of changes to the plan he suggested were right on. There was a slight glitch with the colour of one of the stones and Daimon fixed it immediately. Clearly he wants his customers to be happy - and I am. My neighbours seem to like it too - I've had several people stop and comment on how great it looks. Thanks Daimon!

Driveway Interlocking

We had Ashlar Landscapes out to do our driveway expansion and garden beds. We couldnt have asked for a better company! Very professional and made sure we understood what was happening each step of the way. Would definately recommend Ashlar to anyone else.

front walkway

After the company who originally agreed to do my walkway did not show up on the previously agreed upon day of work (after we demolished the existing concrete path, leaving a mud path) and sent us a rude and drunk text message at 1am that morning, we decided we should find someone else. I logged onto Homestars and called the top 6-7 rated companies. I knew it was a long shot - it was late May and I was well aware how busy landscapers were. Daimon was only 1 of 2 people who called me back. I asked if he could squeeze us in as it was a small job. He agreed and sent over a quote that day. He was very communicative with us, and gave us the heads-up that he was coming a couple days in advance. He showed up when he said he would, was exceptionally pleasant, and very professional. He left the job site cleaner when he left than when he arrived. He completed the pathway in a day even though his saw broke late in the afternoon and he had to go rent another (instead of just calling it a day). The end result is amazing! He made style and design suggestions to us that were very smart and greatly improved the look of the walkway. I asked him to draw up a quote for our back patio while he was there so would definitely work with him again and would definitely HIGHLY recommend him to others!

Landscaping and garden

We just recently had Daimon and his crew come back for a landscaping job in June 2010 to compliment the stone work he installed for us in 2009. With the previous work, we understandably had high expectations and once again Daimon didn't disappoint. A beautifully contoured garden was created with a wonderful selection of shrubs, flowering plants and a tree and further enhanced with some gourgeous limestone boulders.
Daimon is a real gem and such a pleasure to deal with. The work is done swiftly, punctuated with regular updates, all questions are answered and as was the case last year the bill came in as quoted.
We will absolutely have Ashlar back in future. There is simply no need to look elsewhere.

Driveway

I contacted Ashlar Landscapes after reading the reviews on Homestars - and I can attest that Daimon lives up to all of them. He showed up to our house for our initial appointment and quickly got to work providing us with a comprehensive estimate of exactly what we were looking for. Daimon and his crew of 2 arrived on site exactly when promised and within a week we had a beautiful driveway of interlocking stone - a huge improvement over our original gravel drive! Working with Daimon was great - one of the best contractors we have had. He is easy to get along with, patiently answers all questions (we had a lot!) and made sure we were up to speed on the project as it progressed. When he gave us his invoice at the end of the week it was exactly what was quoted - and to sweeten the deal, he has PayPal on his website, so we were able to pay with our credit card and collect air miles. If you're looking for a great contractor and a real professional, look no further than Ashlar Landscapes! Thanks Daimon!!

Retaining wall

We saw the reviews for Forest Hills Design group (now Ashlar Landsacpes--Ed) on Homestars and decided to call them. We met with Daimon and were very impressed with his knowledge and his ideas for replacing our retaining wall. We received a detailed quote for the work to be done and that was the price we paid. We are very happy with the result. It was better than we could even have imagined. Working with Daimon, Terry and Scott was a very pleasant and stress free experience. They are professional, reliable, knowledgeable and approachable. There is no guess work with them; they arrived when they said they would arrive and informed us when weather prohibited them working. We are so happy to have found them. Not only do we highly recommend them to anyone seeking landscaping work but we hope we will have the opportunity to hire them again when we decide to take on additional projects in our backyard.

Backyard Overhaul

We met Daimon of Forest Hills (now Ashlar Landscapes--Ed) after meeting with 2 other contractors. He was the only one who was able to listen and understand what we were looking for while coming up with some other great ideas that complemented ours perfectly! We needed our entire backyard landscaped as it was completely bare. Daimon designed a beautiful plan that included a large stone patio, walkways, and tree rings to go along around several large trees.
Daimon showed up on the day he promised with a crew of two, ready to get to work. They moved quickly, and he easily accepted a few changes we wanted to make as they went along. The end result is BEAUTIFUL! Since the project was completed at the end of July, we have had numerous dinner parties and BBQs and the compliments on our yard are nonstop.
Bottom Line - we would absolutely recommend Forest Hills to anyone! We were so pleased with the outcome and working with Daimon was one of the best experiences we have had with a contractor. He was so knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process. We know that for any future work we want done we will definitely use Forest Hills Design Group!
