Front Yard Landscape and Parking

We called Peter at Green apple to build a parking pad and landscape our front yard. The designer (Fred) created a beautiful landscape which included new front concrete steps (covered with stone), landscaping and retaining walls with lighting and irrigation system in addition to the parking pad. We couldn’t be happier with the completed job. The house now has great curb appeal and we have had many compliments from the neighbours. The crew was very professional and courteous and let us know what was going on at every step. They also communicated well with our neighbours to minimize any disruption to them as we share a mutual driveway. I would recommend green apple for any landscaping job and we would definitely use them again for any future landscaping work.

North Toronto Front Yard Parking Pad and Backyard Landscaping

The team at Green Apple Landscaping were fantastic to work with. I would work with them again and highly recommend them! My involvement with the city to get the permit for the front yard parking pad was extensive & Peter helped me with any questions I had throughout the entire permitting process leading up to the construction. Throughout construction, Green Apple's work was meticulous; Victor, Simon, & JP managed the project through all aspects of demolition and construction seamlessly. It was a very challenging project to demolish and Green Apple delivered on time and on budget with very professional project management skills.
I have a beautiful finished product that my neighbors are commenting looks amazing. Thank you Green Apple!

Front Patio Renovation

I was very happy with the service Green Apple provided. The crew is like a well oiled machine. Smart,efficient and creative. They were courteous and always left the site spotless. My project was finished on schedule even after losing a few days to rain. They also had to trouble shoot a few issues and it was handled in the best way. Honestly is best. And the quality of work is top notch. Always on hand to communicate. I would hire Green Apple again.

Front Yard/Pad Landscaping

I had the great pleasure of using Green Apple Landscaping for a front yard/pad project this spring. Over the last few years we have had a lot of renos done inside and out. No company has been more organized, resourceful or diligent than Green Apple. From the design to implementation everything went smoothly and remarkably fast. The team was beyond gracious and the work was beautiful, clean and prompt. Another point to note is their excellent support and follow-up even after the completion of the project.

Front and back Yard landscaping

Our initial thoughts on the project were to redo the deck and then work on the landscaping separately.
But after a looking at a couple of companies we decide to hire one company to do the entire project.
This is where Green Apple landscaping came in.
We hired Peter and his team to landscape our front and back yard along with redesigning the deck.
His team worked closely with us right from the design phase to the installation.
April worked on the layout; she kept all our concerns and questions in mind when coming up with the plant choices and design.
Victor and Simon who did the landscaping were prompt, detail oriented and always took care to clean up the site every evening.
My main criteria behind hiring a professional to get the job done were met:
The job was started on time, finished on time, came in on budget and more importantly the after sales service has been great.
Any issues or concerns that came up during the job were addressed.
I would highly recommend Green Apple as a company that should be contacted if you thinking about landscaping.

Thanks Brian for the great review. It was great working for you on the landscaping makeover of your front yard and backyard. The swim spa, artificial turf patio and Azek deck turned out really nice. The modern design really complements your modern designed house. Wishing you many years of enjoyment.

Parking Pad

Peter from Green Apple Landscaping is excellent. Even though the city did not allow the removal of our tree for our parking pad, Peter ‎worked with us throughout the process and is a consummate professional in all manner of speaking. We will be doing our future landscaping in the near future with Green Apple Landscaping. I would highly recommend Peter with no hesitation.

Complete backyard reno

We used Green Apple for two projects at our north Toronto home. The first was a smaller project: building a parking pad and doing some front yard landscaping. The second was a much bigger project: a complete demolition and redesign of our backyard. We were extremely happy with the first project that Green Apple did for us so we didn’t think twice about retaining them for the second project. Our backyard presented more than a few challenges, the biggest of which was the fact that it contained an almost 45 degree slope. Green Apple came up with a design that was both practical and beautiful. They took the time to do things right the first time. No corners were cut. Peter’s crew was amazing. They were always available to address our concerns and they came to us immediately when unforeseen issues arose. And on a project as big as ours there were more than a few such issues. But each issue was presented to us with multiple solutions such that there was minimal impact to the budget, the timeline and the overall aesthetic of the finished product. We would highly recommend Green Apple.

Backyard Landscaping Project

This is the second time we have used Green Apple for landscaping work, both times we've been impressed and excited with the results that the Green Apple team came up with. This time, they took a relatively small backyard space and transformed it using plants, trees and lighting to make it a comfortable private space that begs you to spend time in it !. The additional lighting around the property that Peter's team suggested has garnered numerous compliments from neighbours and visitors, the team seems to have a knack for piecing together a cohesive package that is both pleasing to the eye and extremely functional !......we look forward to the next project !!

Backyard Reno

We recently used Green Apple Landscaping for a complete back yard transformation. We are absolutely delighted with the end result and would highly recommend Green Apple for the following 3 reasons:

1) COST -- We found the cost to be very reasonable, but more importantly transparent. We don't mind paying more for certain things that are important: great design (see further below), structural longevity and high quality materials. From the initial design phase and through every step, we had conversations with the knowledgeable Green Apple team to understand the alternatives and make the best informed choice. This distinguishes the average from the exceptional; we feel that Green Apple had the knowledge to know all the options along the cost spectrum and provide us with the information necessary to make our own decisions. We always felt we had choices in terms of prioritizing our spend.

2) GREAT DESIGN -- We have a very small city backyard that needs to serve multiple purposes. We had to have storage for a motorcycle and all the corresponding technical requirements involved in maneuvering a large piece of machinery through a tight space. We subscribe to an alfresco beach aesthetic, which is a fancy way to say we really wanted to maximize our green space. We had several quotes and numerous discussions with other landscapers to discuss our vision. Green Apple won us over with their focus on form and function. They were the only company to invest the time to take exacting measurements of our bicycles, patio furniture and BBQ, to look at the property from all sight lines and to have detailed conversations about the plants that we liked. The result is they have created a space for us that fully fits all our needs and our lifestyle.

3) QUALITY -- We feel that people who are passionate about what they do are the best kind of people. Green Apple fosters that passion in everyone who works there. Their people do the right thing just because it is the right thing to do. This comes through in the way they treat the job site as their own as well as the companies they select to deal with. The result is attention to every detail and high quality throughout.

If any of these elements are important to you, you cannot go wrong with Green Apple.

Thanks for the great review Gerry! It was a pleasure working for you and Megumi. The job looks great. I hope you enjoy it for years to come.

You did an amazing job staining your fence and shed, and your do-it-yourself designed and installed irrigation system really puts the commercial versions to shame.
