New Deck and Backyard Better than we Imagined

We were looking to redo our deck but were having a hard time finding someone we could trust. One day we asked our neighbour who had built their deck, since it looked amazing year after year. Their deck was completed over 10 years ago by All Pro Landscaping and still looks beautiful. We were happy to be connected with Angelo from All Pro Landscaping, who unlike others we contacted, took the time to meet in-person and understand our needs. Safety and accessibility was a key concern for us but instead of having to come up with the solution ourselves, Angelo created just the right design.
With every stage of the build explained in detail, and quick response time for any of our questions, Angelo and his team made it easy for us. We are happy with the quality of the materials and workmanship. No shortcuts were taken. The end result, our deck and backyard is 100 times better than we imagined. Very pleased with the end-to-end experience with All Pro Landscaping & Carpentry, and we look forward to our next project together.

Backyard patio with wall and steps

This is the third time we have hired All-Pro Landscaping & Carpentry Ltd. to do work for us. We have been extremely happy every time. We just purchased a new house which did not have a backyard patio. Angelo and the team are great to work with. They clean up the area every day and are very professional. The patio looks fantastic and we cannot wait for nice weather next year so we can enjoy it more. We would highly recommend All-Pro Landscaping.

Backyard Landscaping

I have contracted ALL-PRO a few times over the years for landscaping work at both my previous and current homes. I am always extremely happy with their work. Most recently, Angelo and his team remodeled my entire backyard - regrading, re-sodding, adding a retainer wall, and building a beautiful new stone patio and stairs. A big concern of mine was accessing the backyard through my sliding glass doors. I was constantly tripping when stepping over the track and down to the first step. Angelo addressed my concern by assembling the patio stairs, so the top step is level with the main floor of my home, thereby ensuring safe accessibility. Every detail of the job was done to perfection, and I couldnt be happier! The team was friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and professional. They arrived early, worked very hard and cleaned up at the end of each day. A big thank you to Angelo, Ann and the entire ALL-PRO team for another job well done!

My oasis

Backyard was done this year. The deck was replaced; storage was added underneath it. A walkway using interlocking stone was added from the sidewalk at the front of the house to the back, crushed stone and patio stones took care of the other side of the house. I like the new sidewalk since now when you get out of the car, you're stepping on a walkway instead of on grass. New interlocking stone in the backyard gives us a larger living space and a raised flower bed allows us to add additional flowers. The look was completed with the laying of new sod. I LOVE my backyard and spend every minute I can out there. It's peaceful and tranquil.
Angelo and his crew did an AMAZING job. I can't say enough about what a GREAT job they did. They also offered suggestions, which I appreciated very much...after all, they are the professionals and know when something is going to look good or not. Angelo and his crew do not disappoint.

Since our first project for you and D. in 2010, we have enjoyed working with you on a number of projects to enhance the curb appeal, enjoyment and functionality of your outdoor spaces. We appreciate your review of our most recent (summer 2023) project to install a full interlock paver driveway, 3-level terraced front walkway/steps and garden border. Yes, each ALL-PRO Landscaping team member takes great pride in the transformative work that we do for our clients, and we are always glad to hear that it shows in the final product and during the planning and installation phases of the project. Again, many thanks and all the best, Angelo

Retaining wall and landscaping

Angelo and his team took on our large, complicated project, a long retaining wall surrounding a pool with a gas fire pit, multiple sets of stairs, stone work, interlock paths, and a fire pit/camping area and other landscaping work. They provided professional, quality services with attention to detail. I highly recommend Angelo and his team.

Outstanding service and support

I always head to ALL-PRO Landscaping whenever I need landscape, deck and fence installation and repairs. Over the past 8 years I've used ALL-PRO for five projects and Angelo is quoting on a project for my new house for completion this fall.

Over the years I have had decks and fences built which I covered in a previous review, and more recently had Angelo and the crew lift and re-lay all the interlock from my front entryway and paths and the steps down the side of my house, pressure wash it all and re-pack the stones with polymeric jointing sand. As usual ALL-PRO lived up to the name as the work was done quickly and to absolute perfection. I sold that house late in 2022 and the value I received was no doubt enhanced by the work of ALL-PRO over the years. I encourage readers to contact Anne and Angelo for your landscaping or carpentry needs. But only if perfection is the goal.

Dear F., We greatly appreciate your three HomeStars reviews of our work for you and your husband in 2015, 2018 and now 2023. It was great to hear from you again this year, although very unfortunate that the flagstone cladding had lifted from your poured concrete multi-level front walkway. Ordinarily, this should not have happened, but it appears that the contractor (who pre-dated us) had not properly bonded the flagstone units to the poured concrete pads. For flagstone cladding installations, we always specify Kwik Mix Stone Bond Premium Mortar Mix in our quotations for optimum results. Removal and cleaning of all of the flagstone units is a somewhat delicate and labour-intenstive process before the flagstone can be re-installed; but now your walkway looks brand new and is secure under foot! And the textured sealant that we applied will enhance that stability. All the best, Angelo

Ajax Landscaping Project - 1960's becomes 2023

Among the four landscapers that I met, All-Pro was the only contractor to e-mail a DETAILED, FULLY-CASTED written quote. Their work involved 7-8 days of landscaping, and was COMPLAINT_FREE, EFFICIENTLY done, and ON-BUDGET. They we're skilled, knowlegeable, friendly and prompt with all work and communications. Others may have done the same work as All-Pro, but nob one could have done it better.

Dear R., Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. You originally found ALL-PRO Landscaping through HomeStars and are now sharing your experience for the benefit of other homeowners! We are happy to hear that you were pleased with the landscaping project we did at your home in Ajax! We put a lot of effort into our quotes and love hearing that they were appreciated! You took the opportunity to transform your home's curb appeal and your family's outdoor living spaces at the same time. The interlock pavers used to construct your new front walkways and clad your concrete front porch also carried that aesthetic to the patio areas in your back yard and southeast side yard. I will be in touch with pricing for the further landscape element you are considering for this year. Looking forward to chatting soon. Again, many thanks! Angelo

In the meantime, here's a little bit about our history and the kind of work we do . . .
...........
...........
CORE SERVICE AREA . . .
With our office in Highland Creek near the Scarborough-Pickering border, and our 3-acre staging yard situated in north Ajax, we concentrate on projects located in:
> AJAX,
> PICKERING, and
> the east/southeast neighbourhoods of Scarborough (e.g., HIGHLAND CREEK, PORT UNION, WEST ROUGE, ROUGE HILL, GUILDWOOD).

OVER THE PAST 37 YEARS . . .
Over the past 37 years, ALL-PRO Landscaping & Carpentry Ltd. has been designing and constructing beautiful, functional custom landscapes for more than a thousand clients who have entrusted Angelo Tersigni and his landscape construction team with their outdoor living spaces and home curb appeal.
...........
...........
ABOUT US . . .
FOUNDED IN 1985 BY NICOLA TERSIGNI AND 21-YEAR-OLD SON ANGELO, ALL-PRO Landscaping & Carpentry Ltd. specializes in working with clients to enhance the beauty and functionality of the landscape elements that complement and add to the enjoyment of their homes.
>> As sole owner and operator for the past 35 years, Angelo continues to honour the family values of integrity, diligence and quality that are at the very heart of ALL-PRO Landscaping & Carpentry Ltd.; the company he founded with his father 37 years ago. Those values have stood the test of time and continue to translate into satisfied clients. And we are honoured that ALL-PRO is now being called upon by the next generation of our client families to help them with their projects. Angelo personally oversees each project from start to finish.

About 80 to 90 PER CENT of the projects we complete each year originate from:
1) previous clients who come back to us with ideas for new projects, and
2) homeowners referred directly to us by our clients (this doesn’t include HomeStars leads).

On average, ALL-PRO Landscaping has the capacity to commit to approximately 30 to 40 CLIENT PROJECTS EACH YEAR (depending on the scope of the projects).
...........
...........
A FEW NOTES ABOUT QUOTATIONS . . .
Angelo personally handles quoting and sales. Hours of work are invested in a typical quotation. Rather than providing homeowners with a bulk dollar amount for the entire project, Angelo goes the extra mile by presenting a detailed, typed "contract specification sheet" that breaks the entire project into individual components that specify the materials/dimensions and pricing per component. The quote also specifies applicable warranty, HST and payment terms. Ultimately, for homeowners who choose to entrust their project to ALL-PRO Landscaping & Carpentry, this quotation document evolves into the signed client contract, usually after a number of refinements to align more closely with the client's aesthetic and budget.
> At times during the season, Angelo may temporarily suspend quoting so that he can focus exclusively on current projects and on quotations already in hand.
In this scenario, our office manager invites homeowners to circle back to us at a later date if they are unable to find another contractor with whom they wish to proceed. She also compiles a waiting list of those homeowners who wish to meet with Angelo when he begins quoting again.
...........
...........
IS ALL-PRO LANDSCAPING A GOOD FIT FOR YOUR PROJECT?
During the peak spring/summer period, we receive approximately 20 to 30 quotation requests PER WEEK, sometimes more.
Many of these we need to decline for a variety of reasons. For example, the project site is outside our core service area, or our schedule is already booked during the homeowners’ desired completion timeframe, or the project is not the kind of work we do.
When non-client homeowners reach out to ALL-PRO Landscaping to request a quotation, we are very grateful. We also respect their time and want to ensure that we are a good fit for their projects. So our office manager will ask a few questions before including their information on Angelo’s quotation request call-back spreadsheet . . .
.
Q1. WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
Each year, we must decline many quotation requests from homeowners located outside our service area.
Please refer to the “CORE SERVICE AREA” note, above.
.
Q2. DO YOU HAVE A PROJECT COMPLETION DEADLINE THAT YOU NEED TO MEET?
Some homeowners are working towards a particular project completion deadline such as the date of a backyard wedding or the arrival of visitors from overseas.
> This is important for us to know up front, because the homeowner's desired time frame may no longer be available on our schedule.
> For example, as of Dec. 21, 2021, our 2022 project schedule was already booked into July 2022, based on an estimated April 11 season start (which, of course, can be impacted by weather, ground conditions, COVID-19, and other factors).
.
Q3. HOW MANY QUOTATIONS ARE YOU OBTAINING?
Conventional wisdom usually concurs that obtaining two or three quotations is prudent for homeowners who do not yet have an established relationship with a trusted contractor.
We respectfully decline to meet with homeowners who are obtaining more than three quotations.
.
Q4. WHAT KIND OF WORK WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE DONE?
We focus on "HARDSCAPE" construction projects, such as:
=> patios, walkways, steps, porches, garden walls, retaining walls, driveway borders/driveways constructed with precast concrete products and natural stone products.
=> decks constructed with pressure-treated, cedar and composite decking products.
For hardscape projects, we can also incorporate the following:
=> sod, mulch, triplemix, washed river rock, ornamental rockery.
=> synthetic grass (usually Rymar Durablade 95 S-Shaped Synthetic Grass).
=> fence and gate structures, constructed with with cedar, pressure-treated or composite materials, as well as custom-ordered ornamental iron fencing from Medallion Fence.
We do NOT install the following:
=> We do NOT install plant material. We refer our clients to trusted horticultural technician-designers.
=> We do NOT install asphalt. We refer our clients to two trusted companies.
=> We do NOT install stamped/patterned concrete.
.
Q5. WHAT IS THE SCOPE OF YOUR PROJECT?
The HomeStars company PROFILE format includes a field for “PROJECT MINIMUM”.
> For prospective clients, we have set $5,000 as the minimum.
> For our previous clients, of course we are glad to come back to help with any landscape construction job, no matter how small.
> We appreciate that some homeowners may be unable to gauge whether or not their project would be above the $5,000 minimum threshold. Our office manager might be able to help with this when you describe the kind of work you would like to have done.
...........
...........
MEETING WITH ANGELO . . .
Angelo's QUOTATION REQUEST CALL-BACK LIST is updated by the office manager. On that spreadsheet, each request she enters is tracked by initial date of inquiry.
> CALL-BACK TIMEFRAME: During the construction season, Angelo strives to touch base with homeowners within two weeks of the date of their initial inquiry logged on the Quotation Request List (unless he had already placed a temporary hold on quoting before the inquiry was received).
> MEETING TIMEFRAME: During the construction season, Angelo does his best to integrate quotation meetings into his existing project work schedule. Client work always takes priority for him — something which prospective clients are sure to appreciate. During the offseason from approx. December through March, Angelo does quite a bit of quoting for the upcoming season, weather permitting.

During the peak season, Angelo combines jobsite work with sales, scheduling, purchasing, transportation, HR, client relations and other aspects of the business. He is at the jobsites daily. Multiple projects are usually under way. Clients deal with Angelo directly on anything pertaining to their projects. He manages the project schedule, calculates and places the orders for project materials and determines crew member assignments each day in consultation with his onsite Team leader, Dan. His Class AR driver's licence also enables him to minimize production disruptions by serving as the supply lifeline for the jobsites: delivering materials from manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers (paving stones, flagstone, wall systems, steps, boulders, rockery, gravel, screenings, lumber, fencing, topsoil, triplemix, sod, etc.), transporting equipment and materials between jobsites and ALL-PRO’s staging yard in north Ajax, and hauling project debris to transfer stations, for example. He integrates quotations into this schedule.

CATEGORIES
Interlocking Stone and Landscape Contractors & Designers
SERVICES
We specialize in gently curving walkway, patio and retaining wall footprints and terraced patios and semi-circular steps, all of which require intricate masonry cutting. ............................................. >>> We help our clients "make a dramatic entrance" with their homes’ curb appeal. We can, for example, transform a builders’ plain concrete front porch and threshold with beautiful square-cut flagstone or interlocking pavers. We can also soften the lines of an asphalt driveway by framing it with an arc-shaped "cape" of pavers that extends across the front of the garage and down the edges of the asphalt area; or, we can install pavers throughout the driveway area! Strategically placed garden bed walls can wonderfully complement the overall look. .................. >>> And we can wrap that aesthetic around the sides of the house to the backyard to create a beautiful, private outdoor living oasis for our clients to relax, entertain, and enjoy precious family moments. ................................................................................................................................................................................... CONCRETE PRODUCTS & NATURAL STONE PRODUCTS: We construct our clients’ hardscape elements with quality materials, both manufactured and natural. .................................................... >>> CONCRETE PRODUCTS such as pavers, slabs, wall systems, coping, steps, etc. are manufactured by (in alphabetical order): Best Way Stone (BWS), BROOKLIN, OAKS, PERMACON, TECHO-BLOC and UNILOCK. ............................................................................................................................. >>> NATURAL STONE PRODUCTS such as square-cut flagstone, coping, and steps are from a variety of sources. We also install Natural Limestone Armour Stone excavated by Kawartha Rock Quarry in Buckhorn/Trent Lakes, Ontario. ................................................................................................ >>> As part of larger projects, we install Washed River Rock and assorted rockery accents, as well as sod, mulch and triplemix from various sources. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... DECKS: Our clients can choose from cedar, pressure-treated lumber or TrexTM composite decking for their deck installations. For decks that are attached to the house, deck plans must be approved via Building Permit from the appropriate municipal jurisdiction building office. We can recommend a BCIN certified designer to our clients who have not already worked with one. As an alternative to a deck, clients can opt for a raised stone patio-terrace. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... For larger hardscape projects, we can also incorporate perimeter fencing and privacy screening into the project scope. We install cedar, pressure-treated lumber and composite fence materials, as well as custom-ordered ornamental iron fencing from Medallion Fence. We respectfully decline invitations to quote on fence-only projects. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... While not glamorous, grading and drainage are vital considerations in any landscape construction project. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... Exterior lighting can add drama and elegance, while aiding in easier navigation of your property after twilight. Any electrical connections, however, need to be installed by a licenced electrician hired by our clients. We can refer an electrician to those clients who do not already have one. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... SWIMMING POOLS: Different clients have different approaches to their pool areas. On the one hand, we design surrounding landscapes that enhance our clients’ enjoyment of their pool oases. On the other hand, we fill in pools no longer wanted by clients for a variety of reasons. .....................................................................................................................................................................................
