Turning disaster into beauty seems to be My Landscapers’ top expertise. And their solid portfolio and top-notch services speak of this in great volume.

The company dubbed themselves as “sodding experts in GTA”. Truth be told, we can’t complain because they have 14 years of experience in this field with hundreds of happy clients.

But that might be a problem for you if you want a different solution. Sodding is different from seeding – the latter costs less, has a deeper root system, and gives more grass variety.

Still, sodding is more accessible, is weed-free, and develops faster. We’re just letting you know in case you actually prefer seeding in your lawn.

Moving on, their track record can easily turn other companies green with envy. With a perfect rating on both Google Reviews and our survey, all we encountered was 100%, satisfied customers.

One of the things we can associate with this positive response is their project management. 

Everything starts with an in-depth estimate, which is free by the way. Then they connect with the clients to draft initial plans, provide expert recommendations, and finalize extra touches.

To be honest, the process is nothing spectacular and quite standard in our opinion. But we respect how they’re always responsive to questions and are actually willing to work around your tight schedule.

Perhaps the most stand-out thing that we loved about them is their portfolio. The range is important to us and we’re glad to find mini backyards to sprawling lawns in the picture.

To give you an idea, they’ve already done patches of green around swimming pools to extensive sod installations in the front and back yards. 

In addition to sodding, the company also offers general lawn care & landscaping, snow removal, fall & spring clean-up, and commercial maintenance. 

Pros

  • Specializes in sod installations
  • 15 years experience in lawn care
  • Treats lawns with organic materials
  • Free estimate on all projects
  • Care resources available through staff tips and blogs
  • Customized organic lawn fertilization for lawn care

Cons

  • Certain services may not bring expected solution

If you want a touch of luxury in your landscape overhaul, Precision Landscaping is our best recommendation. That is if you’re willing to splurge thousands of dollars and deal with minor mishaps along the way.

The company specializes in turnkey landscaping with more than 15 years of experience. This essentially means that the project is move-in ready after completion which everyone looks forward to.

Looking through their portfolio, we encountered many stunning projects. They did work on these gorgeous entranceways, pools, cabanas, fire features, and urban spaces. 

To sum it up basically, they’re a great choice for intensive upgrades in your lawn spaces. Plus, the project outcomes tend to be low maintenance as past clients shared.

What allowed them to achieve these memorable creations is their comprehensive project process. 

It starts with the design stage where they provide clients with 3D renderings of the design package. Then, they move on to permit application and management with also includes architectural drawings, grading, and more,

Finally, construction starts where clients are always kept in the loop for updates. And during the process, specialists give suggestions for improvements in the project.

Unfortunately, not everyone is ecstatic with the results and even complained of poor outcomes. To be fair, most of these concerns were raised at the height of COVID where materials run low in supplies.

So we will cut them some slack in that area but we won’t dismiss other concerns. In some cases, clients get staggering increases in their quote due to additional work required.

Overall, these are relatively small issues compared to their positive work. And the projects really speak for themselves – polished, picturesque, and precise.

Pros

  • Specializes in turnkey landscaping
  • Over 15 years of experience
  • Comprehensive project process
  • Daily updates provided to customers
  • Multi-awards landscaping company

Cons

  • ve issues
  • Minor issues with project quality

Customer Reviews

Stunning results

We worked with precision in the summer of 2020 and are stunned with the results of our new lawn. Our project manager was detail oriented and appreciative of our concerns. Overall we would definitely support Precision again and would happily recommend their team. I’ve attached a photo of the lawn. – Brianna Lawrence

Skillful work on tough jobs

Excellent work by professional tradesmen on my lawn and patio. It looked like a tough job but the labourers handled it skilfully. I wish I took a before and after pic. Awesome job all around. Now I know why I see their trucks and signs everywhere. – Krista Papaconstinou

Gardenzilla is relatively new in the business but already boasts a respectable clientele. We’ll highlight some of their best traits and also some of their negative ones so you’ll know what to expect.

First, the company doesn’t specialize in any type of landscape work, but they balance it out in all of their services. Some of their most sought-after services are lawn mowing, garden care, sod installation, and spring cleanups.

What makes these services highly flexible are their billing options. Clients have the option to pay by the hour, by month, or by the project.

In our opinion, this gives customers more freedom to pay based on their needs only. Plus, it can eliminate any unexpected hikes in costs due to added services.

Second, they have a couple of optional services under their major ones. These add-ons enable customers to customize the care that their lawn will receive under a certain contract.

Additionally, they offer maintenance plans for garden care, lawn mowing, or both. For these clients get an option for either weekly or biweekly service, plus a fertilizer and weed control program of their choice.

Third, they’re fantastic to speak with as they sit through brainstorming ideas to achieve a desirable quote. As past clients share, their rates are highly competitive and won’t break the bank even for large projects.

Moreover, pricing is upfront and fixed so you won’t have to worry about suddenly changing prices. There are no commitments too and you can cancel your plan anytime as you please.

The only thing we want to see improve is their customer service. It can be difficult to connect with them sometimes especially during peak hours.

Additionally, a few reviews said that they never received a call back after sending a message. Nonetheless, we’re still satisfied with what they can deliver so far for their clients.

Pros

  • Flexible pricing structures
  • Customizable service plans
  • Optional services available for certain plans
  • Has maintenance plans for garden care and lawn mowing
  • Upfront and fixed prices
  • Favorable service cancellation policy

Cons

  • Can be difficult to contact on certain occasions

M.E. Contracting is now our favorite company when it comes to outdoor landscaping needs. They have a fantastic selection of materials and top-class workmanship that sets them apart in the industry.

The company specializes more in large-scale hardscaping jobs. With over 15 years of experience, they already made hundreds of Ontarians happy with their services.

Knowing their line of specialty though, they’re not the ideal company for small-scale jobs. You may want to look into other contractors on our list if you only need a small rework.

On top of that, the minimum project amount they accept is a whopping $15,000. Although we actually think that it’s reasonable considering how extensive their projects tend to be – it’s just not for everyone.

Apart from these matters, everything else they offer wins our favor. From project management to a range of solutions and materials, all else is just outstanding.

One of the things we appreciate is their sprawling showroom featuring project materials. We love it because it gives clients a chance to explore and feel the materials they’ll want to use in their projects.  

Second, not only does this company offer complete landscape solutions, but they’re also into eco-friendly options. As much as possible, they always integrate green spaces into their designs which we think are cute and also helpful.

The other thing we liked is how personable the project feels from initial inspection to completion. Well, after all, if you’re paying tens of thousands of dollars, then that’s what you should expect.

Finally, their portfolio of work is immaculate and honestly to die for. They’ve really done everything including patio designs, gazebos, pools, irrigation, and more.

Pros

  • Integrates eco-friendly options in designs
  • Option to see showroom to explore materials
  • Offers complete landscaping solutions
  • Over 15 years of experience
  • Free estimate
  • Multi-awarded landscaping company

Cons

  • Does not accept small jobs
  • Minimum project size is $15,000

So happy with my renovations.  The contractors were amazing to deal with, my Project Manager was patient and really inspiring and the office staff was warm and welcoming. Great company from the beginning to end. Love, love, love my new look. Our whole family is.  My next project is in the works! Very excited! = Brenda Geffen

GTA Landscaping is a wonderful choice if you want innovative landscape designs without the high cost. Let’s walk through their best offerings so you can assess your options.

For starters, they specialize in driveway sealing and asphalt repair. We reckon that they’re a great choice for this matter as they have 70 years of combined experience in the business.

We also liked that their landscape work is both luxurious and sustainable. Oftentimes one or the other is often compromised so we appreciate the balance.

Second, they are a full-service landscaping company so they can do everything from installations to repairs and maintenance. If you’re looking for a one-stop shop that accepts both small and big jobs, they’re a nice place to start.

Another thing worth highlighting is their 2-year limited warranty on labor. Not every company offers this so this factor definitely sets them apart. 

When it comes to the design process, everything is as smooth as you can imagine. They also offer a free estimate and 3D designs so clients can visualize the outcome.

Their respectable portfolio shows a great mix of both residential and commercial projects. Looking through their gallery, we can say that they have a diverse clientele with varying needs and they delivered with satisfaction.

On the contrary, we can’t raise the positive reaction up to 100% because they missed a mark on show projects. We found certain issues on low-quality work that cost clients extra to fix.

Compared to other companies, they’re one of the only few ones with minor issues in delay. But if you compare these issues in the overall picture, they’re basically small concerns that can be fixed with proper communication.

Pros

  • Full-service landscaping company
  • Specializes in driveway sealing and asphalt repair
  • 70 years of combined experience
  • Sustainable and luxurious design
  • 2-year limited warranty on labor
  • Free estimate

Cons

  • Issues with poorly made installations
  • Minor concerns with project dela

Customer Reviews

Great dedication to the project

We have turned to Vlad and the guys at GTA twice in the past few years. We couldn’t be happier with their professional and quality work. First, Vlad was vital to refining the design what we had envisioned to both our backyard patio and front driveway and porch. His crew worked extremely hard with great dedication. Just as important, they were pleasant and respectful. I have no hesitation recommending GTA. – Debbie Lightle-Quan

Clean and thorough job

Called GTA landscaping to give us a quote and happy we did. Alex and the crew cleaned the whole property like we never had it before. Their work is very clean and thorough. Everyone in the building is complementing the new gardens and everyone loves our new japanese maple tree. Thank you so much guys!! – Anna Mak
