Landscape Steps

We had a terrible set of landscaped steps that were sliding to the side due to improper install and foundation. I spoke to about 5 different companies all who could not do the job or were priced very high. I came across Kurt on homestars. He was very professional. Walked my Wife and I through the process. His guys were great and did a proper professional job. Would recommend them to others!

Landscape redesign with Stone Walls & Patio

I would HIGHLY recommend Kurt & his team - Shawn, Adrian & Brendon for their workmanship & professionalism in the redesign of our backyard. The team worked incredibly hard digging the soil out, building new wallls, steps & patio ALL BY HAND! Kurt was available to consult, as changes were made along the way. We are thrilled with how it looks & can't wait to enjoy next summer. Thanks to you all & looking forward to doing the upper patio next summer!

front and rear stonework

We are pleased to recommend this company. We loved the work that they did - which was done in a timely manner, but also the recommendations the owner, Kurt Byers, made as we were not exactly clear on what we wanted. His guidance was invaluable. The work was done in a timely and cost effective manner and he is highly professional and kept us informed every step of the way! My husband and I would highly recommend this company for any kind of fencing, percola installation & design, landscaping and stone work. Kurt went above and beyond our expectations and most important, the job came in right on budget!!! These guys get a 10 in our books

Grade and sod front yard

Replacing stone walkway and front porch

Kurt and his crew did a fantastic job of helping us decide what stone would be right for us. They arrived first thing and put in 2 solid days of work ripping out our old stones and wood and replacing it with a really beautiful job of new stone. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him to anyone looking for good work and a completely courteous and professional crew. Thanks again Kurt!

Backyard stone patio

We were extremely pleased with the work that Kurt and his team did in our backyard. He was very knowledgeable and gave great input into the design of the space. He worked with us to come up with a plan that met our needs, but was within our budget.

The team was polite, worked hard, and cleaned up their mess before leaving. Kurt was on budget, and completed the project earlier than anticipated.

The only thing that I could say that wasn't perfect was the lack of choice in stone. He has a preferred supplier and their stone is pretty expensive. He says he will only work with the best though, so don't choose him if you want to cheap out on stone :)

Overall though, Kurt does fantastic work. We would use him again.

Garden walls, interlocking stones, driveway/soldier cours

This firm is extremely professional in every way from the estimate to the invoice. Kurt and his team rebuit over 200 feet of garden walls at the front and back of my home, lifted/re-laid about 100 s.f. of interlock stone, created a new area using paving stones, cut the asphalt at the edges of the driveway and installed a soldier course of paving stones, and disposed of all surplus materials.,The workmanship is exceptional, the crew is very pleasant, courteous, neat/tidy and hardworking. Kurt provided valuable advice on the design of the front garden that resulted in a stylish design that is very impressive. Once on site I asked Kurt for an extra price to do an extra area of paving stones and his price was very reasonable., I requested changes in the design along the way that were accepted without question. Kurt adhered to his stated start and completion dates and his crew was on site for the entire period without interruption. My wife and I are thrilled with the work of this firm and would certainly recommend them to anyone. It is such a pleasure to deal with a firm with such skills, professionalism and integrity. if I could provide a higher rating then 10 I would do so. John M, Pickering

Landscaping

Kurt is not just another landscaper. He is a talented, very hard working young man, driven with an attention to detail, providing his personal, creative touch, and always willing to do what it takes to make sure that customer satisfaction is the first priority!
From our first meeting with Kurt in discussing our landscaping plans, there was an immediate sense of comfort. He took the time to listen to our basic ideas, created a sketch and his vision and talent took over from there. He continued to surprise us, always keeping us informed of what his thoughts were and presenting us with interesting ideas throughout the project. Upon completion we were extremely happy.
This was a large project and despite the lack of co-operation from Mother Nature, with the hard work and dedication of his crew, Kurt managed to complete the work ahead of schedule!
