Fence Construction

Hofstetter Landscaping built a fence for us in October 2022. Their workmanship was superb and dealing with Rick and Ashleigh was a pleasure. As well as relying on HomeStars for a recommendation, we also checked The Better Business Bureaus recommendation. Hofstetter has an A+ rating there and has had zero complaints since 2006, the year they were accredited there. We highly recommend them.

Hi there
Thanks for the review!
We so appreciate all the effort you both made, with all the challenges incurred, no fault of yours or Homestars!
It has been a privilege working with you, during the planning stages and the install, and also for the referral to do the job next door.
We are happy to hear that you are pleased with the end result!
We look forward to working with you again!
Best Regards
Rick and Ashleigh Hofstetter

A backyard paradise

Rick and team did an amazing job of designing our new backyard. This is the second time that we have had them do work for us, the first time was at our old house. In our new yard, the pool was surrounded by a cement deck, with an old brick patio and a back sitting area of slab cement. Rick designed a new look, including a beautiful back sitting area beneath the trees, river rock borders and a very effective drainage system. The work was done on time, on price, and the team did a number of nice design upgrades as the work took place and things started to take shape. A very professional and fun team to work with.

Hi Scott
Thank you so very much for submitting a review on our behalf.
We greatly appreciate the detailed review of the 2 projects we have done for you both.
I remember the weather was very very hot, and you graciously allowed our crew to have a swim on several occasions.
Your backyard truly is the epitome of entertaining, relaxation and serenity!
Rick and our crew thoroughly enjoyed working with you, and also, watching the transformation.
We look forward to working with you both again in the future!
Best Regards
Rick and Ashleigh

Fence

Rick did an excellent job installing our fence in the Fall 2022. The job had a number of challenges but Rick was very accommodating and did everything possible to make sure that we were happy with the result. Rick and his crew previously installed a fence on one side of our property a number of years ago and that fence still looks great. Last but not least, Rick and his crew were very friendly and professional. We would definitely use Hofstetter for any landscaping projects.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review for us over the holiday season!
We certainly appreciate your kind words, and yes there were many challenges that were overcome.
Rick is an attention to detail kind of guy, so there aren't many things that he can't figured out.
We are very fortunate to have the crew we do, as everyone gets along well, and they are very aware of Ricks expectations during and completion of a job.
Happy New Year!

Rick and his team completed a new retaining wall, including new wooden fence and brick wall. He also lifted and re-set all the patio stones around the pool. I was immensely happy with the work and the crew. Everyone was friendly and professional.

Very professional work

I am very happy with the work done by Rick and his crew. What at first seemed like a small, simple job; a walkway around my garage from the driveway to the front door, a small patio outside the front door and a rock garden against the garage wall; turned into something more. The foundation of the original patio was in my words as hard as granite. It took 2 days of working with jackhammers and concrete saws to remove it. This ate into the time and cost estimate provided. Rick accommodated it with no increase to the quoted price. I couldn't ask for more. I would definitely use Hofstetter again and recommend the company to friends.

Hi Derek
Thanks very much for providing us this review upon our request over the holidays.
We are pleased to hear that you are extremely happy with all the work we provided.
It's no surprise that Rick incurred the extra hours, in labour and costs, and didn't charge you anything extra.
His main goal on every job, is to insure that he and his crew, provide you, with the best possible outcome.
In your case, the end result certainly was achieved!
We look forward to working with you again in the future.
Happy New Year!
Rick and Ashleigh

Landscaping Project

Hofstetter Landscaping has done a number of projects for me, most recently re-doing my driveway and a retaining wall. Rick is truly an expert and takes great pride in his work. His crew is courteous and professional and leaves the site tidy at the end of each work day. Ashleigh (in the office) is lovely to deal with, very organized and very responsive. I will continue to call on Hofstetter Landscaping as I do more outdoor construction around my home.

Backyard Upgrades

I had Rick and his crew build a fence and put in a patio last year. This year I had my front pathway and a large portion of the backyard covered with stones, got a new shed installed and had my fence covered with imitation ivy. The quality of the work is excellent, and everything looks wonderful.

More about Hofstetter Landscaping

Landscaping Contractors & Designers, Interlocking Stone.

OWNERSHIP AND CREDENTIALS
Hofstetter Landscaping is owned and operated by Rick and Ashleigh Hofstetter. Our “baby” was born in 1989 and is now 23 years old. (In case you’re wondering how old we are...suffices to say we are evergreens. :-) Did we tell you we are a landscaping company?)
From the beginning, we have always endeavoured to do the best quality work possible for our clients. We specialize in landscaping and that’s one of the reasons our “baby” has no siblings—no sister companies, no associates, no partners, no branches. Landscaping is what we do and we do it really well.

A TORONTO LANDSCAPING COMPANY WITH A DIFFERENCE
Ever since we started, and even more so now, we find the market exploding with Toronto landscaping companies that make a big noise about “cheap, cheap”. Now, if they were selling birds, it would be okay, but they are not, right? And yet, we often lose a job to a cheap company that “specializes” in being a “Jack-of-all-trades”. Do we want to compete with them? No. But does that mean we are frightfully expensive? Not at all! In fact, our goal is always to ensure that our customers get the best value for money and a landscape that makes them the envy of the neighbourhood without breaking the bank.

As we come across customers who do their due diligence by comparing quotes, we are very mindful and respectful of the fact that one needs to be price conscious. It’s when we are told about a competitive quote that implies “the other guy” can get the job done for less than it costs us to buy quality materials, the alarm bells go off. He needs a hefty deposit from you to pay his guys for the last job done, and of course, there is always that famous curbside taillight guarantee!

We would like to go on and tell you what we have learned and found out in these past 23 years but you wouldn't be able to read it all...

WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE TO ENGAGE OUR LANDSCAPING SERVICES IN TORONTO

All we want to say is this—we do top quality work with a guarantee you can count on, every single time. If it’s not to your liking we'll do what it takes to make it right. We'll be there in years to come, particularly if the weather has given the work a beating.

• We are fully covered with 5 million liability insurance and WSIB approved.
• Our crew is safety certified or they don't work for us.
• Our business has City of Toronto licensing.
• Each team member has government ID.
• We pay our taxes and are an ethical, honest, law-abiding enterprise.

Yes, you will find cheaper Toronto landscaping companies out there. Will you find one better than us in terms of reputation for quality work and customer references? Not likely.
