Front parking pad and landscaping

Peter and his team were very easy to work with. First class operation. Helped with the approval process to make the plan a success.

Landscape Renovation

Absolutely top rate start to finish. Quality and attention to detail were outstanding! In total the Reno took about 5 weeks and it was as close to painless as a reno could get and at the end we have a beautiful yard, front and back. Totally recommend these guys!

Judgement + Experience + Knowledge

Conceptualization into implementation demonstrates experience with expertise. Our concern was font yard parking in the city and with the experience we should get there. This was more and far more than just construction.

Green Apple is terrible and does not deliver

I engaged Green Apple in January to design and then build our back deck - wanting to ensure we started building early spring so the deck would be ready for summer. What a disaster. We waited 4 months, and paid $4000 for a design that was not what we wanted, over priced, and ultimately unworkable. We ended up paying for new design and get someone else to build our deck. The people I dealt with at this company were rude and more interested in their own interests and gauging us. I would not recommend.

We are very sorry that you were not happy with our design and our pricing. We looked back in our records in order to figure out who you might be, using the timeline you gave in your review, and that you said it was for back deck design. We only found one client that matched this timeline and description. If we have this correct, you had hired us to design a deck with a plunge pool for your backyard. You had not hired us to build your deck. We had no idea that you were not happy with our design service as you had not expressed that to us till now. If you had communicated, at the time, that you were not satisfied, we would have tried to do something about it.

We designed your backyard, revised it twice as per your feedback, and then gave you quotes for us to build the job multiple ways. You then asked us to break down our pricing and we communicated the breakdown in terms of material cost, labour, and overhead. When a wish list exceeds a budget, clients can be upset sometimes.

We are unsure of how we were rude to you. To be upset because another company is cheaper than us is unfair and unreasonable I think. We strive to be a high-quality builder and not a low cost one. Just because we could not build your backyard for the price that another contractor may have is no reason to give us a poor rating like this.

Our design fees are based on property size and intricacies of the design and for your property, therefore, it was $3,500 plus HST which included a scaled 2D plan that any company can use to build the job and 3D plans with pictures showing what the project will look like from multiple angles allowing you to know what your backyard will look like before it is built.

For those reading this, please read all our other positive reviews.

Amazing front yard & parking pad buildout

What a life saver! It turns out that the house I bought did not have a legal City of Toronto parking spot. To make matters even worse, we had a medium sized tree (and associated tree protection zone) that made it almost impossible to carve out a compliant parking spot. Peter and his team were able to guide us through the process of getting the right paperwork in front of the right city departments (Urban Forestry, Parking Enforcement, and more), and came up with a beautiful landscaping plan that respected the TPZ and satisfied all of the city's other requirements as well.
Would highly recommend as a landscaper in general, and can't imagine anyone better if you're trying to work within City of Toronto restrictions to get parking approved (in the wards where it is legal).

Thank you, Shamir, for taking the time to place this great review! Getting approval for your particular parking pad was definitely the most difficult one that we had to navigate in over 25 years of getting front yard parking permits for clients but the satisfaction of succeeding was also greater. Enjoy the new front yard makeover and your new legal parking pad.

Front yard, porch and walkway overhaul

Excellent work and professional design. Peter, Frederik and the crew at Green Apple were a pleasure to deal with. They completely overhauled our front yard with a new walkway and steps, retaining wall and a new front porch. Peter kept us up to date on progress and any necessary design changes, is extremely knowledgeable and always available for any questions. We would gladly work with them again.

Parking pad and walkway

Peter and his team were very professional in designing and installing their pad and walkway design. They were provided more value for money when compared to other estimates and their recommended materials exceeded the specs of their comparables. Overall very satisfied with their work.

Full Property Makeover

Green Apple Landscaping consists of a small team of people who care, are passionate, are conscientious, believe in customer satisfaction, confidently operate specialized equipment and machinery, and demonstrate daily that they take pride in their work and workmanship.

From our initial investigative contact with Peter, to the measuring and design vision phase with Fred, and straight through to the construction and craftsmanship details executed by Victor, Simon, and GP, we were wowed! All of them are experienced and hardworking professionals. They kept our budget in mind, welcomed last-minute requests, were always available for on-site consultations and questions, and were meticulous and thorough.

The creation of a “10-years-in-our-home” “lands-iversary” (landscaping for our 10th anniversary in our home) was an important step for our satisfaction in it over the next ten years … and beyond, so it was a HUGE task with many minute and grandiose details needing equal attention. No problem for these guys!!

We trusted them to create a functional and visually attractive “home-scape” which consisted of complete front and backyard landscaping with lighting elements, new interlocking brick pathways and backyard patio, a new gazebo with insect/sun protection, partial yard enclosure with cedar fencing (including a sliding door for driveway access), extensive planting, readiness for an irrigation system, a new patch of sod, and the creation of a gorgeous brick and wood front-yard focal point demi-wall …. and the final result exceeded our expectations tenfold!!

Our results were on time, on budget, and on point!

Friends, neighbours, kids on their way to school, and even the odd passer-by will express their joy with our freshened-up yard, improved curb appeal, creative garden additions, and new entertaining spaces. As a family, we smile just looking at it, and beam being amongst the design elements. It’s fabulous!

Suffice to say, we are very confident in both the quality and the durability of the work and would highly recommend Green Apple Landscaping for ANY outdoor task given … they are THAT AWESOME!

Front yard parking pad

We hired Green Apple Landscaping to help us with the application process, design and construction of our front yard parking pad. Peter and his team were extremely professional and helpful in navigating the entire process. The project was completed on time and within the budget. We were thoroughly impressed with the quality of work but also the level of communication. It is hard to find a company as responsive and professional as Green Apple. Would highly recommend them for any landscaping project.

Front yard landscaping

The goal was to replace the retaining wall while protecting a very large tree and create new walkway and front porch. Everything was done very professionally from the design and city permit acquisition to the on site work. The crew were a pleasure to work with and were very professional and easy to communicate with. The project came in on time and on budget and the results are outstanding
