Patio and French drain system

Review

We had ALL-PRO Landscaping install a new stone patio and French drain system in our backyard this summer. Even with COVID-19 and the relentless heat wave we experienced, Angelo and his team pulled through and delivered a fantastic installation. Our project was delayed a few times due to the many unforeseen circumstances that came through working in a pandemic during a heat wave, but Ann was in touch with us regularly through the process to give us updates along the way. Working with her was also amazing - she is so organized, her emails are always detailed and very helpful, and she’s always willing to get answers. This is a team of people who really care about their work and their customers, and it shows. We weren’t left in the dark on anything and our questions were all answered right away. I’m not even sure how they do it because they are VERY busy given the quality of work they do and being so in demand!

We chose ALL-PRO after doing lots of research and using the reviews here on HomeStars as a big factor in our decision. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ALL-PRO. Angelo is a true master of his craft and his work was incredible. He is the type of person who wants to get the job done RIGHT and not cut any corners, and he’s the type of person you can trust to do a great job. He really went above and beyond, and we are so happy with the final product. Angelo’s team is also hard working and they were all very polite and respectful. Attention to detail was top of mind throughout and the cleanup after was also fantastic - couldn’t find a single piece of anything accidentally left behind! I can’t say enough good things all around - we are so thrilled with how everything turned out!

My one suggestion would be if you want ALL-PRO to do your project, contact them early on as they will book up quickly!

Stones: We chose Winchester pavers in Pewter with Inversa Stone in onyx for the border. Angelo suggested a soldier course for the border and it turned out great. The step is the Large Peninsula step in Charcoal.

Front of the house landscaping

We contracted All Pro for a landscaping project in front of the house that included the walkway, the retaining walls, step to the porch and soldier course around the driveway.
Angelo and his team were very professional every step of the way. The contract included details on the foundation to be used for the installation, which other contractors do not mention; the materials were sourced locally; the price was very competitive.
The team went above the expectations and paid a lot of attention to minor details. They even did work not specified in the contract, just to make everything look good.
We already asked Angelo to come again next year for another project.
I strongly recommend All Pro for any landscaping projects. We are really happy with the outcome.

Front door stairs renovation

Many thanks to Angelo, Dan and Jason for the amazing renovation of our front door stairs (see before and after photos). You were professional, punctual and hard working. Angelo you were always reachable to answer our questions by phone and email. The job was completed well within the timelines and on budget. I would not hesitate to come to you for any future stonework or landscaping project. We've received many compliments!

Dear Frances. We are so grateful for your review and the before-and-after images of your front entrance transformation. Your choice of Hampton Limestone Flamed Finish natural stone to clad the existing concrete stoop created a dramatic result, further amplified by your new black wrought iron railing and freshly repaved driveway! (Thanks for editing your review to add this third image!) It was wonderful working with you. All the best, Angelo
(Note to HomeStars Readers regarding Hampton Limestone Flamed Finish installation: 1) 2-inch Coping for the step treads, 2) Square-cut Flagstone for the verticals, and 3) 7-inch x 16-inch x 5-foot rockfaced step at the base where we removed the raised poured concrete mini-platform.)

Reinventing our garden

We decided to do a makeover of our front garden beds. We wanted to place quite a number of large Mountain Grey armour stones In the garden beds. We once again contracted with All Pro Landscaping (who had done a couple of previous jobs for us) and they very quickly arranged for the product and had them placed in our garden in a very short space of time with no damage at all to our driveway or grass!
We couldn’t be happier! Thanks Angelo for taking care of us once again & for the quick efficient execution of the job!
We look forward to the next time.

Thank you, Mr. McCrea! You were among our earliest HomeStars reviewers with your kind posting in Jan. 2012 regarding our 2005 and 2011 projects. Now, more than eight years later, we were delighted to receive your call to assist you with the garden areas inside your circular driveway and in front of your home. While this was a smaller project than we would be able to accept from a prospective new client, we are always happy to hear from our previous clients and assist with any landscape installation project. We, too, very much look forward to the next time! All the best! Angelo

New, bigger deck, rip out above ground pool, new 700 sq. ft. patio pavers

Angelo & crew ripped out our old above ground pool, tore down our old, smaller rotting deck, ripped out a few cedars, installed a new larger deck/railing, and installed 700 sq. feet of beautiful large patio pavers. Quality respectful crew, job completed in a timely and high-quality fashion, at a fair price. We would definitely recommend All-Pro Landscaping for your backyard reno!

Front Entrance, Then Another with Path to Backyard patio

Angelo did such an amazing job with the entrance of our Pickering home in 2015, when we moved into our dream home there was no doubt who’d be getting the call. We had the front entrance done in flagstone and pavers. A paver walkway with complimenting river rock leading to the backyard patio. The work was thorough, professional, with a keen eye to detail. Would recommend All-Pro all day.

Hello Grant! Thank you for this very kind review! It was an honour to help you to turn your dream home into the home of your dreams by bringing your vision for the surrounding landscape elements to life. Glad to hear that you are still enjoying it after nearly two years. All the best, Angelo

Backyard Renovation

Angelo and his team were professional and punctual.
Competed an entire backyard renovation with attention to detail. We were kept informed of the progress every step of the way. We are very pleased with the final product.

It was great to hear from you the other day! I look forward to seeing you again this week – albeit from a distance. Thank you for submitting this review of the backyard project we completed for you in 2018. The project involved a little bit of everything … about 800 square feet of pavers for your patio, about 800 square feet of sod, lifting and relocation of existing pavers to another part of your property, about 60 linear feet of pressure-treated privacy fence with gate, removal of your existing deck … but the crowning glory was most definitely the four beautiful garden beds we installed for you totalling 155 linear feet of curving garden walls. I look forward to seeing the new spring growth! Bye for now, Angelo

Back yard

In 1995 All Pro filled in our pool, did interlocking and created a lovely garden. Now i find the upkeep to much so Angelo came back last year and excavated and laid sod did some edging.a great job was done both times.
now for the third time he is coming back to work on the front of my property. I am sure the quality of his work will match the previous work.

Thanks Angelo for the great work done

NEW FRONT STEPS/WALKWAY ALONG DRIVE WAY/RETAINING WALL FOR DRIVEWAY/ WALKWAY ON SIDE OF HOUSE

The front steps are wonderful and exactly the way I wanted them. Easy to manage for a senior. Thank you Angelo for your advice - you were right. I love my front entrance and it has already proven itself this winter. The retaining wall was also a good idea and the walkway from the backyard to the front is easy to manage. All Pro Landscaping has done an excellent job in my backyard several years ago and has proven itself again this time. I highly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for durable and exact work done in a timely manner. Thank you Angelo for all your help and your drawings, suggestions and recommendations, they were excellent, to the point and bringing satisfaction. Many, many Thanks..

Dear Mrs. H., Thank-you for reaching out to us again last year to help you with your new project. Yes, I recall that your front steps were of particular concern for you. It can sometimes be a bit difficult for folks to visualize the solution for a problem area. I have the benefit of 35 years of professional experience in landscape construction design which I am always happy to share with my clients! It was a pleasure to work with you again. Many, many thanks for taking the time to share this review of our work last year and more than 15 years ago! All the best, Angelo

Landscape

After living in our backyard for 18 years, we finally decided it was time to do some landscaping and create a relaxing space to unwind. We had a vision for the yard and Angelo and his team were able to bring it to life. It was a huge project, complete with a ramped walkway, spa area, flower gardens and an amazing water feature.
Throughout the planning process, which included numerous revisions and additions, not to mention the rainiest spring of all time, Angelo problem solved, issued sound advice and ultimately created our backyard oasis!
Thank you, Angelo, for your patience, planning and your attention to detail! We are thrilled with the result!

It was a delight to work with you and your family to bring your vision to life. You already had a beautiful backyard space, complete with vegetable and flower gardens. Our goal was to enhance your family’s access to and enjoyment of that space. As in all projects, communication and clarity are absolutely essential — from initial consultation to quoting, planning, revisions, materials selection, excavation, installation, and final touches. For large projects such as yours, this becomes even more critical at every stage. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your reflections on the process and the final result! Wishing you many, many happy years of relaxation and enjoyment! All the best, Angelo

ALL-PRO LANDSCAPING NOTE RE: COVID-19 . . .
.
On Friday, May 1, Premier Ford announced that our landscape construction sector has been included among those permitted to resume operations on Monday, May 4 — the first stage of Ontario's economic restart.
.
The health and safety of ALL-PRO Landscaping team members and homeowners are of paramount importance to us.
.
We had suspended our landscape construction activities in compliance with the Province's original emergency order of March 17.
.
In the interim, we have been making preparations through the modification of workplace and employee policies and procedures regarding physical distancing, hand & respiratory hygiene, self-assessment for COVID-19 symptoms, and other measures.
.
For example, we are mandating that team members travel individually to and from project sites in their own personal vehicles, with no carpooling allowed. The company owner is the sole designated driver of ALL-PRO's fleet (dump/pick-up trucks), with no passengers riding in the cab. This season, we have opted to limit our construction team complement to five (5) landscapers, including the owner. We supply our team with disposable non-medical masks for use when 2 metres of physical distance is not possible while working. We also provide hand sanitizer as well as a portable, contained hand wash station onsite. These are just a few examples.

These policies and procedures are rooted in the Province of Ontario's Guidance document for our industry sector entitled, "Workplace Safety & Prevention Services (WSPS) Guidance on Health and Safety for Lawn Care Workers during COVID-19".
.
We are regularly monitoring for new Federal and Provincial advisories, and will adjust our policies and procedures accordingly.
.
Wishing you a healthy and safe season ahead.
.
The Team at ALL-PRO Landscaping

SERVICE AREA . . .
With our office in Highland Creek near the Scarborough-Pickering border, and our yard situated in north Ajax, we concentrate on projects located in the EAST/SOUTHEAST NEIGHBOURHOODS OF SCARBOROUGH (Highland Creek, Rouge Hill, West Rouge, Port Union, Guildwood) AND EASTWARD INTO PICKERING, AJAX & WHITBY. This holds true particularly in the spring. Later in the season (after July), we may take on projects in Oshawa or, possibly, Courtice, for example. (PLEASE CLICK ON THE THUMBNAIL IMAGE OF OUR CORE SERVICE AREA MAP IN THE PHOTOS SECTION OF THIS PAGE.)

OVER THE PAST 35 YEARS . . .
Over the past 35 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 32 years, Angelo continues to honour the family values of integrity and pride of workmanship that are at the very heart of ALL-PRO Landscaping & Carpentry Ltd.; the company he founded with his father 35 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 60 PER CENT of our business each year originates from client referrals (not including HomeStars leads) and from clients who come back to us with ideas for new projects — a testament to our excellence in landscape design and construction services.
...........
A FEW NOTES ABOUT QUOTATIONS . . .
On average, ALL-PRO Landscaping has the capacity to commit to approximately 30 to 40 CLIENT PROJECTS EACH YEAR. During the peak spring/summer period, we receive approximately 20 to 30 quotation requests PER WEEK, sometimes more — but many of these are outside our service area, or, occasionally, some have been too small for us to be able to take on, given the team of landscape construction employees and fleet of equipment that we must support.
.
Angelo personally handles quoting and sales. Hours of work are invested in a typical quotation. Angelo's hand-rendered to-scale drawing of the project design footprint, calculations and shorthand notes are what he requires to develop a quotation price. However, rather than providing homeowners with a bulk dollar amount for the entire project, he goes the extra mile by presenting a detailed, typed "contract specification sheet" that breaks the entire project into individual components — each one defined by price, material specifications and dimensions. It includes warranty, applicable taxes, payment terms and approximate start date range. Ultimately, for homeowners who choose to entrust their project to ALL-PRO Landscaping & Carpentry, this quotation document becomes the signed client contract (usually with some revisions beforehand due to client changes to the project parameters). (Projects of a certain scope and complexity may, of course, also require architectural drawings.)
.
When 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 staff will ask some initial questions before including inquiries on Angelo’s quotation call-back list . . .
.
Q1. WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
Each year, we receive, and must decline, more than a hundred quotation requests from homeowners located outside our service area. (Please refer to the “Service Area” note, above.) However, for our previous clients, we make every effort to accommodate their request.
.
Q2. WHAT IS YOUR PROJECT COMPLETION TARGET DATE?
Some homeowners are working towards a particular project deadline, while others have no target date. This is important for us to know up front, because:
> Our current roster of scheduled projects may make it impossible for us to take on a prospective project requiring delivery within the homeowner's specified time frame.
> At times, Angelo may temporarily suspend quoting. When we are fully booked into September, Angelo stops quoting so that he can focus exclusively on current projects and clients, until he re-opens quoting in mid-August or early September.
In this scenario, our office staff compiles a waiting list of those homeowners who wish to meet with Angelo when he begins quoting again, or we invite them to reach out to us again at a later date.
.
Q3. HOW MANY QUOTATIONS ARE YOU OBTAINING?
We respect and understand the need for homeowners to obtain multiple quotations. Conventional wisdom usually concurs that two or three quotations is prudent (possibly even four), if homeowners 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 IS THE SCOPE OF YOUR PROJECT?
The HomeStars company PROFILE format includes a field for “PROJECT MINIMUM”. We have set $5,000 as the minimum.
> HOWEVER, for our previous clients, of course we are glad to come back to help with any landscape construction job, no matter how small.
> For non-client quotation requests, we are, regrettably, unable to take on small projects, given the team of landscape construction employees and fleet of equipment that we must support.
> We appreciate that some homeowners may be unable to gauge whether or not their project would be above the $5,000 minimum threshold. We might be able to help during your initial call when you describe the kind of work you would like to have done.
.
MEETING WITH ANGELO . . .
Angelo's QUOTATION CALL-BACK LIST is updated by office staff. On that spreadsheet, each request 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 Call-Back 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 projects always take priority for him — which both current and 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 usually works from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days per week in order to combine jobsite work with sales, scheduling, purchasing, transportation, HR, client relations and other functions. 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. 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, boulders, rockery, gravel, screenings, lumber, fencing, topsoil, sod, plant material, etc.), transporting equipment and materials between jobsites and the company's yard in north Ajax, and hauling project debris from the jobsites to the yard or transfer stations. He integrates quotations into this schedule.

Interlocking Stone
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" — for their homes, that is. We can, for example, transform a builders’ plain concrete front porch and threshold with beautiful square-cut flagstone or interlocking pavers. We can 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. ................................................................................................................................................................................... We use quality materials, both manufactured and natural. We design our clients’ hard landscape elements with pre-cast concrete interlocking pavers and wall stones, and with Natural Stone products such as flagstone and steps from Kawartha Rock Quarry, Silver Valley or elsewhere. And, of course, we install Armour Stone, Washed River Rock and assorted sizes of rockery accents from various sources. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... Our clients can choose from cedar, pressure-treated lumber or TrexTM composite decking or opt for a raised stone patio-terrace instead of a deck for their back yard living and entertaining spaces. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... For perimeter fencing and privacy screening, our clients have the option of cedar, pressure-treated lumber, composite fence materials, wrought iron or strategically-placed hedge ⁄ tree plantings. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... Speaking of plantings, soft landscaping elements are the crowning touch to our projects. And, while not glamorous, grading and drainage are vital considerations in any landscape construction project.. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... Exterior lighting can add drama and elegance, while, more importantly, ensuring that your family and guests can easily navigate your steps and walkways after twilight. ..................................................................................................................................................................................... In terms of swimming pools … on the one hand, we design landscapes that maximize our clients’ enjoyment of their pool oases, and, on the other hand, we fill in pools no longer wanted by clients for a variety of reasons. .....................................................................................................................................................................................
