Front Walkway, Landing & Porch

Sal and his amazing team did a fantastic job on updating the front exterior of our home. We had our old walkway, front porch and landing replaced and the results are just beautiful. It was such a pleasure to work with Sal and his team. Sal took the time to walk us through the process, make recommendations and answer all the questions we had. We felt comfortable to trust Sal throughout the process and leave the design up to him, we only needed to agree. 9.58

The Groundscape crew was professional, meticulous, always on time, gave 100% all the time, polite, clean and lets just say that I would definitely recommend them for your landscaping needs.

#BackyardGoals

After a year of owning our home in Etobicoke, we decided to prioritize converting our outdoor space into the backyard we've been dreaming of. I met with Sal to discuss and quote the work, and really felt a sense of trust, transparency and partnership. He understood our wants and needs, and was able to create a design that incorporated everything that we had voiced to him and also a budget to match, which broke down every feature so we could see where the money was going and adjust if necessary. From there, we felt extremely confident in hiring Groundscape and work started in June 2022.

They demo'd our overgrown greenery as well as our tired, small patio and created, well, some magic :) We now have a MUCH larger patio space that runs the entire length of the house, using a variety of gorgeous modern pavers to bring some visual separation to the dining & lounge areas. To bring some added ambiance and relaxation, Groundscape also created a custom fire table for us, installed a hot tub pad and added beautiful lighting that really makes the space look so dreamy in the evenings. To frame the patio space they created all new garden beds with trees and grasses to bring some additional privacy and also added irrigation to ensure everything was low maintenance.

Sal and the crew were extremely professional, communicated every step of the way and made us feel comfortable and confident throughout the project. They worked from 7am to at least 6pm every day (through some extremely hot days might I add) and were 100% committed to creating an amazing end product and bringing the makeover to life. We now have a beautiful backyard #backyardgoals and have Groundscape Construction to thank for it! I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking to rejuvenate their backyard, and make the outdoors a space they truly enjoy.

Property Landscape Project

We had our front and backyards landscaped May 2022 and overall were very pleased with the work performed by Sal and his 4 man crew. Sal is very professional, communicates effectively every step of the way. The crew were courteous, on time, and worked steadily while on site. This was a 3 week long major project.

They put in proper drainage system in our front yard, leveled the front, then sodded the entire lawn. As well they built up a garden under our front trees.

In the backyard, the team removed all grass, soil, stones, and patio stones to lay a bed of course crushed gravel, finer washed limestone screenings, and then laid interlocking stone as well as a retaining wall. Part of the patio area in a corner was raised and planter stone boxes were created on both sides. This work was done mostly by hand, and working around an existing pool which was tricky with respect to return lines. A great amount of detail was given during the installation so that in the end all patio areas were graded properly for water run off.

We appreciated the quality of products being used, and the workmanship.

We were very pleased with the results and would definitely recommend Sal.

Complete Backyard Renovation

Groundscape Construction was amazing to deal with, from start to finish of our project of our complete backyard reno and both sides of our house.
Sal and his team were very professional, super friendly and wonderful to deal with. We never had any issues getting in touch with Sal for any questions we had, and the response time was very fast as well. He was very receptive to our needs and ideas, made great recommendations and offered different options to choose from, and always keeping in mind this space was also for our kids. Their safety with choosing proper materials and planning the layout of the backyard project was important and well thought of.
Sal and his crew members were incredibly hard working, cheerful and always showing up on time. They are so knowledgeable, professional and the results are incredible and built to last. They always cleaned up at the end of the day and left everything tidy and organized, even our driveway was swept after each workday. The timeline of events such as deliveries of materials or bins were so very well-timed and organized.
All the materials used were very high quality. We had interlock stones installed for our backyard patio, surrounded by armor stone, steps and also a retaining wall across the back of our cedar edge. River rocks and pavers were installed on the sides of the house. The new sod installed is very good quality as well. It was a great experience working with his Groundscape Contractions, and I would definitely not hesitate to recommend Sal and his team. They really took care of every little detail that makes the complete project stunning and long-lasting. We are very happy and satisfied with the end results.

Porch, steps, stone walkway, lighting and garden beds

We hired Sal and his team to do the landscaping in our backyard and the side of the house last year. We were extremely pleased with the work so we hired him to do the front yard this year.
The team is professional and hard-working and did a great job once again. They really take pride in their work and it shows! The porch, steps, walkway, lighting, garden beds and stones by the tree all look fantastic.

Interlock driveway, wrap-around patio, front walkway, lawn re-grade

Outstanding workmanship! The entire crew from Groundscape Construction did an exceptional job from start to finish. And we’re confident it has been built to last – which was most important to us!
The scope of work included interlock driveway, backyard wrap-around patio, front walkway, lawn re-grading and something to address a dirt patch along one side of the house. We knew there would be issues with grade and extensive tree roots throughout all areas. From our initial meeting with Sal we immediately recognized he had the experience and expertise to deal with these challenges, as well as bringing a strong design focus to the project. He had great suggestions to enhance the landscaping which we appreciated.
Throughout the process Sal maintained excellent communication with us - keeping us informed of the plan and progress, issues encountered or anticipated, and soliciting our input into alternative solutions. He is a perfectionist and very detail focused so we knew he would find good solutions to any issues that came up. He was always incredibly responsive to any texts or getting back to us with quotes for change requests.
We especially appreciated the strong work ethic all crew members held - showing up on time, treating us and themselves with respect and professionalism, and cleaning up well at the end of each day. They truly work as a team and the results show.
We could not be more impressed with the way the project turned out and would not hesitate to recommend Groundscape Construction to anyone.

Front and Backyard Hardscaping

Groundscape Construction was great to deal with from start to finish.
Sal was very professional and pleasant to deal with. It was always easy to get a hold of him and he was very responsive to all questions and inquiries even during a challenging year while coping with unpredictable material availability. He was receptive when I made a few changes and willing to work with me to come up with the best solutions.
Sal and his crew were always calm and respectful while being very hard working. They know what they're doing and the results look fantastic.
All parts of the job turned out great. Flagstone on front porch, interlock patio in backyard, interlock one side of house, stone steps front and back, triple mix for plant areas and new sod where needed. They even did a couple of little extra things that weren't expected and were very much appreciated.
They always cleaned up at the end of the day and left everything tidy and organized.
It was a great experience working with them and I would not hesitate to recommend Sal and his team.

Backyard Renovation

We cannot say enough how happy we are with our completed backyard.

We started with an above ground pool and 22 year old pressure treated deck, which Sal and his crew transformed into the backyard of our dream!

My husband and I were both impressed by Sal from the first time we met him to quote our project and we were not disappointed. His attention to every detail shows in the beautiful results.

His crew was always on time, respectful and very hard working. I felt like this wasn't just a project for them, but they really cared about the job and wanted to finish with a beautiful yard we could all be proud of.

Like all projects, there were things that came up (and changes we made during the project), Sal always communicated with us constantly with all the details, options and recommendations when asked. He always responded to us quickly with any questions we had.

The craftsmanship, attention to detail and quality of their work far exceeded our expectations! I would highly recommend them for any project!

Full Backyard Reno

Sal and his crew did an amazing job transforming our backyard into a private oasis! Sal worked with us from the beginning to plan, budget, and design the project. He communicated with us constantly throughout the project, and responded to any of our questions or concerns immediately. Sal also did a great job overcoming all the Covid19 challenges. Honestly, the best customer service experience I have ever had with any contractor!

Once the work began, the Groundscape crew showed up early every single day and stayed late whenever they needed more time to finish what they were working on that day. They showed total commitment to every detail of the project, and were meticulous about cleaning up at the end of each day. The entire crew gave our project their full effort and attention until the job was 100% finished. We could not have asked for anything more from a landscaping company, and we love our new backyard!

Outstanding Customer Service

Sal and his team did an amazing interlock job on our porch, walkways and double driveway a couple of years ago. When we called him recently about a minor issue he stood behind his work and dealt with one section of our driveway where necessary. As before Sal was a real pleasure to deal with. He personally came out with two very polite and careful workers and restored the project back to its original gorgeous state.
Thank you so very much, Sal!
