Deck and landscaping

We replaced our existing deck and cleaned up our landscaping. The deck is beautiful and so much more than I anticipated. Thanks to Assiniboine for such a great job. I am now sitting on my deck and enjoying the garden.

Front yard landscaping

Very happy with the entire experience. From the quick response to requesting a quote to the finished project.
It was very helpful to have someone with knowledge on products that would work with what we envisioned. Kris, Peter and Levi were really great to work with.
Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services or use them again for our next project.

Yard work .

Maybe the sod should be rolled to smooth out grass. thats all. Thank you. Lyle

Company Response

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review, we really appreciate it! The crews generally do not use a roller on the grass just after it has been installed because they do not want to run the risk of damaging it before it has had a chance to establish its roots. They do a really thorough tamp of the dirt prior to laying down the sod so it should be all good! If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask!

Paving stones patio, deck and stairs, stone raised garden and sidewalk.

This is the second time we have had them. They did paving stones at the front of the house 3 years ago. Zeke was the worker who did both jobs. He works extremely hard and puts in long hours. He takes great pride in his work. The railing for the deck and stairs is a work of art and way beyond our expectations. His work with paving stones is incredible in the way he maximizes his material to fit the space. Sometimes cutting 1/2inch gap fillers without breaking. They aren't the cheapest but you certainly get what you pay for. I suspect we will be having them back for more work.

Landscape Retaining Wall

Assiniboine delivered on this project. Chris went the extra mile to ensure every special request we made was executed to our satisfaction. The two employees he sent to the job site were first class. The quality of workmanship exceeded our expectations. We're inviting them back to design and build an outdoor fireplace because they've 'earned' our trust.

Very disappointed with Assiniboine Lights & Landscapes.

I hired Assiniboine Lights & Landscapes this summer to do work on my backyard. The main objective is to replace the weed preventing screens in my lava rock bed to ensure no weeds or grass come through the rock bed. I stressed to the project manager that because of arthritis in my knees, I can not bend and pull out weeds and grass. I showed him my neighbors stone beds that had no weeds. The project manager assured me that there will be no weeds or grass once Assiniboine has done to work.
Assiniboine also did other work which they did well. My only complaint is that now it is 3 months after the work is finished, weeds are grass are coming through the screens again which I did not want to happen and was the main reason for my hiring Assiniboine Lights & Landscapes
When I complained to Assiniboine Lights & Landscapes Customer Service, below is is the response I received which is very disappointing
“Thank you for sending these photos along, I have spoken to your project manager regarding this matter.
There is no warranty for weeds, unfortunately, Weeds are a part of the Calgary environment. We can take all the necessary procedures to try our very best to limit the amount of weeds coming up but there are no guarantees that you won’t have any weeds at all.

There is a disclaimer in the contract that we had you sign at the beginning of the project stating we do not warranty the weeds

Weeds are a part of maintenance. If you do not maintain your property weeds will grow.”

If this is the case, then the project manager should have told me this before he accepted the work. I would have not hired Assiniboine Lights & Landscapes. My neighbor’s rock beds have no weeds or grass coming through.
From my experience with Assiniboine Lights & Landscapes, do not believe what the project manager tells you and read the fine print.

Very disappointed with Assiniboine Lights & Landscapes.

Sherif we are very sorry that you feel that we did not originally communicate well enough that we cannot guarantee zero weeds. We will try to find new ways to emphasize this even more clearly in the future. We work very hard to have transparent pricing and warranty policies because we never want any of our clients to feel that they can't trust us. We have reached out to your project manager to see if there is anything that he can do, however as we noted before we can't guarantee that you will have absolutely no weeds in the future. There are some things that are out of our control.

Excellent Work, Excellent Personnel

10/10 .... Safely completed the repair of fence and retaining wall. Great communications regarding the estimate, very competitive pricing, started 2 weeks before anticipated (good!), workers were extremely personable ... esp. Carson (kudos to him), work was done when they said it would be, great flexibility to deal with issues (large concrete blocks that had to be moved for proper drainage).
