Ravine Backyard

Sal and his team were professional from the first time we met. His landscape designer was excellent and we loved the first drawing.

Sal and his team were all great guys and very hard working. They worked from 7am to 6pm at least daily. The finished the project ahead of schedule.

Sal was easy to work with. Always communicated well and was always responsive to any messages and calls.

I have no hesitation in highly recommending Groundscape for your next project.

Backyard revival and front lawn

Sal is first class when it comes to quality of work and customer service. His team completely revived our backyard and front lawn. Admired the attention to detail and small tricks that make the overall project look amazing but also expected to last forever!
Thank you again to Sal and his team for their work on our backyard and front lawn, already have neighbours asking for referrals!
Would not hesitate to work with Sal again.

Full backyard reno and side

When we met with the owner, Sal, we could tell he was quite professional and we felt comfortable hiring him for the job.
All of Sal's team was pleasant and professional, and there was always good communication. They didn't rush anything and put a lot of effort into making sure the backyard was perfect.
Our drab backyard was transformed into a nice little oasis.

Front and side interlock walkway project

From design, construction and staff, Sal and his crew are first class. The experience that Sal brought helped us with subtle design improvements and the flexibility throughout the project to work with us was appreciated. The work was done with a "perfectionist" approach. They were very considerate of neighbours when cutting stone or making noise. The job site was cleaned thoroughly every night

Patio transformation

We made the decision of having our backyard transformed into an usable space for the family this summer, originally we thought about doing a deck using wood because of budget reasons, but due to lack of availability of wood at this time we thought about other solutions.
Concrete was our choice because is a maintenance free option and even though it is more expensive than what we had plan to spend, it is not as expensive as other options like interlocking, etc.
So went to Homestars to look for reputable companies in our area to contact and get the process started, we contacted five companies, not all of them called but we are very happy that we got a call from Groundscape Contruction. Even though our project was not the biggest, Sal made us feel like it was important to them, he booked an appointment to come take measurements, explained to us very clearly what our options were and sent us an estimate promptly. We decided to go ahead with them.
The result is everything we had expected and what was promised, his team is hardworking and professional, but the most important thing is you can feel that you are in good hands from the start. We will be calling Sal again in the near future for other projects we have in mind, we highly recommend their services.

Backyard Transformation

Two weeks ago our "plain vanilla" backyard was transformed into our vision of a sophisticated, elegant, comfortable oasis. After waiting for months before our project could be scheduled, the big day finally arrived and we were both nervous and anxious as Sal, Mike and the crew began the excavation. We quickly came to realize the professionalism and expert knowledge that Sal and his crew exhibited at every stage of the project. We truly can't say enough about this company and their people. It's always so comforting to see the owner (Sal) and his project lead Mike on the job every day making sure that every detail was handled as promised. If there was a complication or when we changed our minds on an aspect of the job, Sal was very accommodating and always made sure we were happy with the outcome. It's the little things that sets a contractor apart - arriving on time every day, working full days, being polite and accommodating, leaving the job site clean and tidy every evening, and coordinating different sub-trades expertly such that the project ended exactly on the day Sal projected, within budget, and to a level of satisfaction that exceeded our expectations. They went above and beyond - we were so impressed by the extent to which they exceeded standard specifications to ensure a lifelong, trouble free installation.
A new patio was incorporated into an existing one by cutting into it and incorporating beautiful complementary hardscape stone with two seating walls at the rear corners. The badly sloping rear yard was excavated, leveled, properly drained and a beautiful natural Armour Stone retaining wall was installed to line the rear perimeter allowing the yard to be levelled out. Deep extensive garden beds were created on three sides with plantings of columnar cedars, hydrangeas, hedging and variegated hostas. It was all capped of with meticulously laid and leveled sod surrounding the . Low voltage lighting was added to accent the trees and flowers, which creates a stunning look and ambience that envelopes you in a sense of calm, sophistication and beauty; a great place for entertaining.
We would highly recommend Sal and Groundscape Construction to anyone seeking a landscape contractor. They care about the work they do, are very accomodating - making you feel like in your good hands, and they go that extra distance to do really fine quality work. Great team and superb workmanship.
Here are some pics of the finished project (we installed the pergola ourselves after the landscaping project was completed).

Landscaping Front, Side & Back of House

Sal and his crew did an amazing job on our landscaping project. We are so glad Groundscape Construction Inc. did the work and more than pleased with the final results. It looks wonderful and it is now a real pleasure to spend time outdoors.

From our first meeting, Sal listened to our ideas, took meticulous notes and made diagrams of our vision for the front and back landscaping. He truly grasped what we had in mind, provided us with product catalogues and explained the pros and cons of the various qualities of stones in which we were interested.

Sal and his hard-working crew were at our house early in the morning every day. They were all very professional, polite and respectful of everyone, including the neighbours. Each day they worked long hours even though the weather was intensely hot. Our property was always left in a clean and organized state at the end of the day ready for the next day. At the start of the project, Sal told us his guys are great but that was an understatement, they are all incredible landscapers!

We highly recommend Sal and his crew at Groundscape Construction Inc. Their products are high quality and their workmanship is top notch.

Backyard landscaping/ natural stone patio

For years we’ve been wanting to clear up a corner of total wasted space in our backyard, and make it a usable area. Our decision to move forward with this project was a last minute one, and we didn’t expect a contractor would be able to help us for weeks/ months. From the initial consultation, to the final project ‘reveal’, Sal and his team were outstanding. I would never have thought my patio project would be completed in less than 10 days, even in the middle of a pandemic. Sal was extremely professional and clearly knowledgeable of his trade- he understood exactly what my vision for my backyard was, and delivered it to perfection. Even though I considered my project a small one in comparison, he took extreme care of it and ensured I was happy with the progress every step of the way. I can’t wait to enjoy my new patio, and am looking forward to hiring Sal again to work on the front of my house! Thanks again, Sal- it’s not easy to find a great contractor, but you’ve nailed it.
