Front walkway, porch & steps, and backyard patio

We have an older Scarborough bungalow that had the original landscaping front & back and needed work. We were looking for help to help improve the street appeal of the house in a way that fit in but was also easy to maintain. Greg & Martine developed some great recommendations and delivered exactly what we were looking for, and did it quickly and on budget.

Landscaping: Front entrance + patio

After purchasing a new home in Pickering, I knew there was only one way to elevate it from the other surrounding ‘cookie-cutter’ homes; and that was by the landscaping. Personal recommendations led me to Classic Pools and Landscaping. From Greg and Martine's very first consultation with me, I was amazed at their vision for the entrance and how they were able to incorporate our wish list whilst elevating the entrance to something esthetically pleasing and inviting. During the completion of the entrance, Greg's hard working landscaping team drew intense interest from neighbours and onlookers as people came by to see their astonishing work. Not only are we thrilled with the transformation of our entrance from a boring construction grade concrete entrance to a warm and stunning walkway to our home but we were also utterly impressed by the level of care, experience and expertise shown by Greg, Martine and their team. I understand that most of Classic Pools and Landscaping's work comes from personal recommendations and so I felt I should add this review. I personally recommend their company as one of the best Landscaping companies in the GTA. You will not be disappointed!

Backyard Pool and Landscaping

Classic Pools and Landscaping created a backyard oasis! A beautiful white lined pool, surrounded with artistic interlocking and a waterfalll has turned our backyard into a retreat after a long day at the office. Greg, Martine and the crew were a pleasure to deal with and exceeded all of our expectations.

Hello Linda & John,
Your home backs onto Lake Ontario and the natural setting is spectacular! In keeping with the landscape, your choice of natural stone pavers, stone steps and informal plantings look perfect. It was a pleasure working with you to create such a grand entrance.
Happy Dragon Boating!

Assisted Review

An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.

Dear Greg & Martine,
First impressions are said to be the most lasting. Our first impressions of Classic Pools & Landscaping were definitely of a company dedicated to creative, engaging and quality workmanship.
Of course, we were also desirous of a grand first impression of our home.
On this you superbly delivered. The design was a total surprise and delightful. Such a subtle incorporation of our existing driveway and a most creative interlock design speaks to the experience you bring to the job. Our gardens are a pleasure to watch unfold this spring and we look forward to providing you with the photos. Morning coffee with your staff was enlightening as we discussed the outcome of each days progress. We enjoyed coming home to see the results at the end of the day truly transforming the entrance to our home.
Thank you so much for your excellent work and contribution to the refinement of our property. The quality of the workmanship is unsurpassed and provides us with great delight.
It was a pleasure to have you work with us on this project and we will certainly call Classic Pools & Landscaping for future home enhancements.
Sincerest thanks and appreciation,
Lesley & Richard

In-ground pool and landscaping

It was a life-ling dream of mine to have a pool and when we finally bought a house with a yard that was big enough we hired Classic Pool and Landscaping to make our dream a reality.

I can't say enough about the service and the entire process. The design was beautiful, the construction process was quick and painless and the result was everything we dreamed of. When we had a minor issue that needed following up, Greg was there in a flash. And the landscaping is stunning -- we admire it daily.

I know a few people that have a Classic Pool and like me, it is a "no regrets" situation.

I am going to try and figure out how to get a photo on this site -- my pool really speaks for itself...

Hello Anne-Marie & David,
Your backyard is absolutely STUNNING! Who needs a cottage when you can swimm and relax in your salt water pool while listening to the soothing sounds of the cascading waterfall... The lush plantings should make for an exciting easter egg hunt for Trinity & Ava.
Have a fabulous summer!

Inground Pool and Landscaping

If your planning on getting a pool/landscaping, a must call is Classic Pools. Don't be taken by other Companies and their smooth talkers and fancy quotes with landscaped drawings. Two recommendations: ask for a referral and compare the work with a competetor, and TRUST Greg and Martine, you will be very glad you did. Their recommendation to go with a white liner, the shape of the pool for my backyard, the colour and type of stone, etc... I absolutely questioned him (I couln't resist ) but in the end I'm glad I listened. Excellent experience. Thanks, Rob & Deanna

Hello Rob & Deanna,
It was a pleasure creating your dream 'Summer Room'. The cascading waterfall and stone retaining wall are simply stunning. Replacing the wood deck with a stone terrace really opened up the space and added to the overall flow of the design. Your Saturday morning coffees are very tasty! Enjoy your lovely retreat!

swimming pool

We shopped around for different quotes for building an in-ground pool. Our first quote was from another competitor of Classic Pools. We were less than satisfied. We later had an interview with the representative of Classic Pools. We were absolutely amazed with how much knowledge she had. The interview process lasted at least a couple of hours. By the end of it, we had all our questions answered thoroughly. Needless to say, we were convinced that Classic Pools was by far the best choice. We liked the portfolio they provided for their work. We were offered the usual variety of shapes, but we had our own plan, which they easily accepted and built. The building process was clean and efficient. The crew always made sure that all tools and equipment were put away safely. They were also very patient with our demands and offered alternatives to fulfill our demands. Further, they were able to meet their target deadline, even under wet conditions. We found the entire experience with Classic Pools exciting. They gave us a great way to enjoy our short summers.

Landscaping

Greg Mulvy and the team from Classic Pools & Landscaping Inc. installed a soldier course on either side of our new driveway as well as covering and relandscaping the front of our house. After our initial consultation, Greg provided design ideas and detailed drawings for the proposed work.
The work was excellent and we are very satisified with the end result. It has held up very well and we have had numerous compliments from family, friends, neighbours and total strangers!
I would like to note as well that we did have a concern that came up the following season with some of the man made stone used in the work. I contacted Greg who promptly came by, had a look and immediately got in touch with the vendor for this product. A short time later Greg and his team returned at our convenience to replace the problem stone at no cost to us.
I would and already have recommended Classic Pools and Landscaping Inc. to a number of friends and business associates looking for quality work at a competitive price.
In fact, we will have Greg and his team back next season to completely re-do our back yard.
