Front entrance / stairs

It's been a few years and the job still looks great and has held up perfectly. This is due to the fact it was done well. I've seen too many jobs that have not had good workmanship, and have had problems in as little as a year. The job was also done on time and at the date specified. Finding a tradesman that even does that is hard enough to come across. Angelo, as well as his employees, were courteous and friendly. I was so pleased with my walkway I have recommended his company to friends.

Dwayne and Clara, thanks for your kind words and for the referrals. Client referrals have been (and continue to be) at the heart of ALL-PRO Landscaping’s business over the past 26 years. Customer satisfaction and providing our clients with the best service is important to us. Sorry for the delay in replying. It's been non-stop 7-days-a-week since the season started! Thank you again for the review. All the best, Angelo.

The team from All-Pro Landscaping & Carpentry Ltd were just amazing and truly did a fantastic job with our backyard interlocking and our fence. They were friendly, courteous and so professional plus they left everything neat and tidy at the end of each day. Our back yard looks fabulous and feedback from our friends cannot believe what a " fantastic job they did". Can't wait to have them back to do the front of the house !

Thank you, Don and Annie, for your great review. It was a pleasure working with you both. I am glad you and your friends are happy with the end result and are enjoying your backyard project. I look forward to working with you in the future on the front of your house! Bye for now, Angelo.

Front walkway, porch and garden wall, back yard redesign and patio

We first met Angelo from All-Pro Landscaping in April 2006. He was recommended to us by a neighbour. We contacted him to advise us on the replacement of our front walkway, porch and gardens. From our first meeting we appreciated his professional approach from the quotation stage to the completion of the job. All work was completed on time, on budget, and communication at all stages of the job was always appreciated. We also had Angelo fill our in-ground pool that same year and the following year we engaged All-Pro to completely redesign the rear entrance to our home, garage and install a wonderful patio area. We have recommended Angelo to numerous neighbours and enjoy the work he did for us every day. Thanks Angelo. Walter and Lynda

Dear Lynda and Walter, Thank you for carving out the time from your hectic schedules to post this very thorough chronicling of our work together over the years. (And, Lynda, I can't believe you went through all of our contract specification documents to add up the costing!) Anyone reading this would think that there couldn't possibly be anything left to "do" on your property. But, of course, they'd be wrong. I'm looking forward to seeing you again this weekend to discuss your new project ideas for enhancing your enjoyment of the property. I'll be in touch in the next few days to schedule a convenient time to meet. Thank you, again. Angelo

Interlocking stone

Hiring a contractor can be a daunting task. When I decided to have the asphalt in my driveway removed and replaced with interlocking stone, Angelo was one of three contractors I contacted for an estimate. In contrast to the other two contractors Angelo provided me with a detailed written estimate. Although the quote he provided was not the cheapest after considering his work experience, knowledge and references I decided to hire Angelo and his team. The project was completed on time and on budget. I was so pleased with the end product that I hired Angelo to complete two other projects. If you are looking for a reliable, trustworthy, professional and fair contractor then contact Angelo.

Architectural Landscaping - walkways, raised gardens, lighting and entrance

For the last 30 years I've been unhappy with the landscaping and front entrance to my home. To put it simply, the transformation was challenging but Angelo was up for it! He designed a landscaping plan that surpassed my highest expectations. All Pro Landscaping was prompt with their service, highly reliable and skilled with excellent follow-up. I can now proudly say my home has 'curb appeal' and the numerous compliments that I have received reinforce this!

Dear Cyril, For me, as a ‘landscaper’, there is no greater fulfillment, than helping clients to transform their outdoor living spaces and, in the process (although it may sound a bit corny), changing their everyday lives for the better. Our environment has a very strong and direct influence on us. Being able to shape your environment is empowering and uplifting. Many homeowners are unhappy, but can’t visualize what they want. It is my job to provide them with options, with ideas, so they can develop that vision for a particular project or series of projects. In your case, however, you brought your vision to me. I merely expanded upon it and, of course, executed the final plan. I was honored to have been able to help you to bring your vision to life. After 30 years of unhappiness, here’s to 30+ years of enjoyment! Happy gardening! And thank-you for your generous review. All the best, Angelo

Interlocking Stairs, Walkways and Patio

Angelo was recommended to us by some good friends of ours many years ago at our first House. As a result of that work 2 of our friends as well as at least 2 other people hired him. We moved into our new Home 6 years ago and didn't waste any time hiring Angelo to do our front steps and walkway. 2 years later we had him do our Patio in the Backyard and he also did work for 2 of our new neighbours and I know for a fact that they have recommended him to their friends and Family. I wouldn't recommend a Contractor to a friend or neighbour unless I was sure that they would be happy with the work.

Mike! What a dramatic illustration of the power of “word of mouth”! We certainly stand behind our work and, as it turns out, our work is our best advertisement. Client referrals have been (and continue to be) at the heart of All-Pro Landscaping’s business over the past 26 years. Thank you for all of your referrals and, of course, for your business! Bye for now, Angelo

All-Pro Landscaping has provided excellent service and workmanship regarding stone work at our house. Angelo has a good eye for shape, colour and proportion. His work was on time and within the agreed budget. I have no hesitation to recommend All-Pro.

Pool fill-in, putting down sod

We are so pleased to have had Angelo Tersigni and his crew fill in our 20'x40' swimming pool. The work was well-done and on schedule as promised. Angelo kept us well-informed as to progress. Excellent clean-up after each day's work ensured minimal disruption for us. We are looking forward to a nicely sodded yard in the spring. Kudos to Angelo and his hard-working crew!

Dear Mati and Judy, Your swimming pool fill-in was quite a challenging project given the limited access to the site. So your very kind review is particularly appreciated by all of us at All-Pro Landscaping! I look forward to speaking with you in late March regarding the sod installation, so you can get set to enjoy your "brand new" back yard! In the meantime, please give me a call on my mobile at any time if you have any questions. Thanks again, Angelo

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!

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

OVER THE PAST 36 YEARS . . .
Over the past 36 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 34 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 36 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.

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" 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. .....................................................................................................................................................................................
