Driveway

I had someone else put in the apparatus for a heated driveway. Gus did the stonework around my driveway and was also responsible for the asphalt. Very pleased with it now.

Interlock Driveway and Flagstone Path

After a failed start with a previous contractor that could not get the job done, I put in a lot of research into finding a team that could execute and deliver well. Having an engineering degree, I really put the teams I interview through the paces to determine who would do a quality job for the right price. Gus came through with great communication and details of how he was going to do the job with the high quality I was looking for.

Once the team got working, they continue to impress. Coming in early and leaving late every day to get the job done. As with all jobs, unexpected items can come up, but the team did great to communicate, provide solutions and execute on the plan. The driveway and path look great and I'm sure it will last for many years to come.

Thanks Gus at team!

New permeable paver driveway and re-build of front porch

Gus did a great job on a new permeable paver driveway plus re-building the front porch and entrance to our house. Excellent attention to detail and high quality of work. We have got many compliments from neighbours on the obvious quality and style of the completed project.
He was very clear about when he would start the job and how long it would take and Gus and his workers were very respectful of the neighbours while they were working here.
Gus has excellent skills and holds all his crew to high standards. The stonework was done with real artistry and the landscape lighting he recommended and installed is beautiful. We were very pleased with the final project and highly recommend Gus and So Green Canada.

Hope you enjoy it for years to come and looking forward to hopefully dropping by soon when Claire finishes all the planting in and around the new landing / steps and raised plant bed

Front and Backyard Interlocking and Landscaping

Gus and his team had done a great job on our project. He is willing to spend time in putting together a great design that fits our budget. We had some malfunction coping lights after being installed for a few months and he assured us action will be taken to fix the issue. We are very pleased with his follow up service.

Hi Carmen, Clayton
Thanks for taking the time to write a review about your experience with our services . I know you wanted to wait for two years to write a review about your experience and results , and until our two year warranty is finished on all of your hardscape work.
Last year one of the back yard trees *( red bud ) didn't make it and we sent a crew and had it replaced shortly after you emailed us that it's dead .
One of the coping light fixture has stopped working as you have advised this winter and I did promise that we will change it and replace it even if the warranty is expired or over .( we're hoping to do so shortly when the weather permits ) .
We will make every effort to hopefully try to keep our good customer satisfied with our services and work ,since we believe that a happy customer will bring us a repeat or a referral business and that is what we strive to do.
Many thanks and hope you enjoy your front and back yard for years to come .

Great design and execution

Very satisfied with the service. Gus has great ideas, both practical and good looking. Completed on time and budget. You’ll get many compliments. All of the paintings survived and thrived, even though we had some heavily shaded areas.

Driveway, front yard and Backyard

We interviewed around 5 contractors for the landscaping work of our front and back yards as well as the driveway. Gus stood out from all of them through his proposal of detailed breakdown of each tasks within this project. He showed us his great knowledge and understanding through various recommendations, which are proven to be total "making sense". His team completed the job exactly as what was designed and we expected with high quality and great details. All my friends love the look and feel of the landscaping. In addition to that, Gus also provided great after sale service. He came to fix some issues came out after the project proactively. He makes sure the dollar you spent on the projects are well worth it. We highly recommend you consider Sogreen for the big project you are going to have for your house.

Hi Scott , Bruce
It was a pleasure working with you on your front , back and side of the house project . I am so pleased that you to meet you last weekend during my visit to seeing a prospect customer close to your area . The hardscape material selected is looking great after close almost to one year of wrapping this job . The plants they barely start to bloom . For sure when all the plants are in full bloom this summer I will drop by and take a picture for both front and back and add it to our portfolio and to this review .
It was great working with both of you and I hope you enjoy your home outside for years to come .
Have a great summer , Gus

Hi bassima , Michael
Many thanks for this great review , and thank you for taking the time after almost 2 years or more since we have finish the job.
It Was great working with you and Michael on your backyard , and I'm glad that we were able to transform Almost unuseable backyard to a levelled back yard with lots of green space , a shed area and all this is due to building a Main retaining wall facing the ravine at height close to the existing side walkway height and making it levelled and usable . Hope you enjoy it for years to come . Thank you

Backyard entertaining area completed in 2008

The design brief was to create an entertaining area for 8 people. Go Green designed a sophisticated 20x20 foot area with ewe, boxwood and existing cedars defining the space. A river birch was added along with curbing, pea gravel and staggered stepping stones. They created a stunning oasis in my backyard just steps from Bloor Street that still looks great 20 years later!
