Sept., 2010
To: All-Pro Landscaping Carpentry LTD.
Owner and President: Angelo Tersigni

We wanted to send you a letter to thank you for the exceptional workmanship that you and your architectural team did on our front porch, patio, side lot grading, and pool deck that you installed in the Spring of 2008. Your experienced team was very professional, courteous and reliable. The entire process from your initial quotation to conception design and final completion was hassle free and timely. You provided samples, options and unique and practical designs which clearly distinguished you from the other competitors. You were extremely knowledgeable on various products, building codes and construction.

We had a number of different estimates from various landscaping companies at prices above and below your rate. We are very discerning customers and investigate our options thoroughly prior to awarding business. Once the job was complete we knew we made the right decision and believe “you get what you pay for”. All-Pro had excellent craftsmanship for very competitive rates.

After 2 years we are very pleased with the solid work and design. The stone work has not shifted and the project has clearly increased the curb appeal and value of our home. We have received countless complements from neighbors and friends on the work.

It was great to see a company stand by their warranty. We did call you on one minor issue. You responded to us immediately and the concern was rectified on the spot. Your high quality products, excellent workmanship and after installation service were top notch. We were very pleased and would absolutely recommend All-Pro Landscaping and Carpentry Ltd. to anyone looking for a superior job.

Please feel free to use us a reference any time. It was a pleasure to do business with you.

Thank you so much!

"I hired All-Pro Landscaping for the first time about 5 years ago. Angelo impressed me with his ideas and his understanding of drainage and structures. All Pro completed the job on schedule and was very professional in delivering the job we were looking for. Our front patio is now a favourite roost for my wife and I, and we regularly receive compliments on the work they have done. Since then, All Pro has done a retaining wall and a backyard patio. I highly recommend his service! "

Hi Kevin. Thanks, again, for your testimonial. Glad that you and Rhonda have been getting so much enjoyment out of the front patio. It's a shame that you're now moving and will have to start all over again! But at least you've kept it in the family and can visit. Looking forward to seeing you when you're in town and to working with Kevin Jr. on future projects. Bye for now. Angelo

beautiful driveway interlocking work and courteous, friendly and honest service. I would recommend to All Pro to anyone wanting beautiful landscaping work done

http://AllProLandscaping.ca has over 25 yrs serving clients in and around Toronto. I have seen many of their jobs firthand - They do beautiful quality work and their friendly personable service is second to none! Driveway interlocking can be messy.. All Pro Landscaping is considerate and takes care of their customers needs while the project is going on. My home is my biggest investment, my family is most important, and http://AllProLandscaping.ca is the only landscaping company I will trust my home - and my family.

retaining wall

Angelo and the team were great to work with. Professional, on-time and under budget, they removed my old 8' retaining wall and replaced it with a new one. It was a big job, and they did it very well. I will use them again!

Hi Nikisha. Thanks so much for your review of All-Pro Landscaping's work on your retaining wall project. You are our first HomeStars reviewer! When you submitted the review to HomeStars last October, we had never even heard of HomeStars, but have since learned about the service and are now in the process of setting up a profile for All-Pro Landscaping. We enjoyed working with you and Tim, and look forward to seeing you again soon. 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.

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. .....................................................................................................................................................................................
