This large and extensive project was a primarily a redesign of large backyard in Central GTA. Carl was retained with the idea that he would provide the masonary work needed to do the hardscape and prepare areas for softscape. I did not retain the services of a landscape company but did have a rudimentary paper design. It was a design sketched in pencil and difficult to visualize. But I found that Carl was very interactive in the design phase as the project evolved. I expected that he would able to use his experience to advise us on materials. But Carl also provided invaluable input on layout and specific design features. The consultation process continued throughout the long term project. This was critical. Carl has an easy manner and communication style that lends to an excellent professional working relationship. Furthermore, Mace Masonary accounting staff is very neat and professional. Mace Masonary has been quick to respond to questions and requests.The complex, challenging project design involved working with a new pool, old demolished pool, existing fencing, new fencing, multiple retaining walls, new softscape, large treed areas, pool equipment, iron gates, iron railings, large stone steps, multiple drains, and problems with grading at the house. He was able to assist us to our vision of a unique, beautiful, contemporary yet classic design. He was able to bring Life back to a backyard associated with a bad experience. My friend's comments on seeing the project, "Wow, welcome to Club Med. It's your Muskoka Oasis in the city."I have to note that this project involved many different people which involved various stressful challenges. However, Carl and his team were able to maintain their professionalism. They were able to work collaboratively with all involved with a patience far beyond what could be expected. Carl was not able to keep our project on time but this was not due to factors within his control. We highly recommend Mace Masonary. Feel free to ask Carl for our reference if you would like to speak in more detail.
