Deck, Patio and Paving

We had a complicated job because of local permit parameters, and Rick was flexible and helpful in dealing with the inspector's requirements. He managed work-around solutions when our drawings for the deck created problems, and didn't bat an eye when told mid-dig that certain posts would have to be relocated. The result was a well-constructed elevated deck, even paving down a tricky side slope and patio, and a solid driveway and front walkway, complete with a repositioned lamppost. A very dependable company...

Thank you both so much for writing this review.
This certainly was a complex job, and our patience was challenged on many occasions due to permits, and inspectors restrictions over a 2 year period.
However, the end result was worth the wait, and the end result was absolutely outstanding!
It has been our pleasure working with you both!
We know you will get years of enjoyment, and relaxation while sitting out on your spectacular looking deck!
We look forward to working with you again on your next project!
Best Regards
Rick and Ashleigh

New Deck

When I was thinking about replacing my old deck with a new one my concern was who should I call. I spoke to my insurance company and was told to call Hofstetter Landscaping because they would provide a servive of high quality.

I called to make an appointment to have someone come to my house to give me an estimate. It was such a pleasure speakimg with the lady who picked up the phone, she was so pleasant, polite and thorough. Later I found out her name was Ashleigh. She said that her husband Rick would come and give me the estimate and he did show up as planned.

Rick came and explained everything in detail exactly what he intended to do. He answered all my questions in full and he left no stones unturned. Rick and his team pulled the old deck down one afternoon and the next day a brand new deck was built. It was wonderful. It was the talk of the neighbourhood. The workmanship was top class.

Thanks for putting a smile on my face. I would definitely recommend your company to family and friends.

Regards,

Interlocking extraordinare

I originally hired a contractor to put in stamped concrete who let me down & left a mess. I was referred to Hofstetter Landscaping by a friend. When I met the owner Rick, I felt very confident that he was very knowledgable and made me feel confident. He is a true professional. Hofstetter Landscaping started on the date they promised and completed on the date they had provided. Rick & his team were very professional, did exceptional work and cleaned up everything before they left. Their customer service is excellent and they even called to check a few days later to ensure I was happy. I have never been so completely delighted with work done by any contractor! I highly recommend Hofstetter Landscaping for any landscaping project.

Job very well done!

We had Rick and the team come out and complete a landscaping job in the backyard. We were looking for a full rip up of the existing path and grass area (it was just weeds) and then a new path, full sod and a large cement pad for a swim spa. He definitely did not disappoint! The pathway is fantastic with trees and brand new sod. The cement pad was done so well that when the company came to drop off the swim spa they said it’s one of the best pads they had ever seen and were highly impressed!
Would recommend this team to anyone looking for an outdoor crew to make their space amazing.
Thank you Rick, Ashleigh and team!

Interlocking and sodding

Rick replaced the interlocking on our garden walkway, did some needed re-sodding and power washed our patio. He and his team did a super job. Very happy with the results, and Rick was great to work with from start to finish.

Interlock Driveway and Backyard Path

Rick and his team went above and beyond, from our initial contact with his wife (while they were on vacation), to the end of our project.
The cost for the amount of work, time, materials and outcome, was well worth it!
We were so impressed with the communication; discussing process, costs, best solutions, options etc.
My neighbours were amazed, not only at their
beautiful job, but at how clean the crew always left the neighbourhood and how respectful they were to everyone.
Rick even went so far as to put sod on for the finishing touches!
Thank you Rick and crew, for creating exactly what we wanted and far exceeding our expectations!
Note: I think my dogs are missing you!

It was our pleasure working with you and Paul, and we are so happy to hear how pleased you are with the end result!
Rick and our crew strive to ensure that our workmanship is the best it can be and, clean up at the end of the day is a MUST!
I'm sure the dogs will miss Rick, I met one of them when we passed by so I could see the job!
We look forward to working with you again in the future!

residential retaining wall

Rick and Ashleigh were a big part of my life for a 6-month period in 2017, as they worked with me through conception, planning, and a significant amount of co-ordination with a surveyor and a commercial property manager whose property abuts mine.
Through it all, Rick and Ashleigh were patient, open-minded, and focused on getting my job done successfully.
Rick was onsite for the work, with two helpers, and the job was wrapped up in the day, and the area left very clean.
Two years later and I'm very happy with my wall--not only has it passed through two freeze/thaw cycles unmoved, but its brought a lot of peace and stability to my life, and backyard.
Thanks again Rick & Ashleigh !

Front walkway

Rick designed the front walkway to our house and at the same time remedied a problem we were having with ponding of water against the foundation.
The workmanship and quality of products is near flawless. We get compliments all the time on how fabulous it looks.
We will definitely be calling Hofstetter Landscaping again for future projects which we have planned around our house.

More about Hofstetter Landscaping

Landscaping Contractors & Designers, Interlocking Stone.

OWNERSHIP AND CREDENTIALS
Hofstetter Landscaping is owned and operated by Rick and Ashleigh Hofstetter. Our “baby” was born in 1989 and is now 23 years old. (In case you’re wondering how old we are...suffices to say we are evergreens. :-) Did we tell you we are a landscaping company?)
From the beginning, we have always endeavoured to do the best quality work possible for our clients. We specialize in landscaping and that’s one of the reasons our “baby” has no siblings—no sister companies, no associates, no partners, no branches. Landscaping is what we do and we do it really well.

A TORONTO LANDSCAPING COMPANY WITH A DIFFERENCE
Ever since we started, and even more so now, we find the market exploding with Toronto landscaping companies that make a big noise about “cheap, cheap”. Now, if they were selling birds, it would be okay, but they are not, right? And yet, we often lose a job to a cheap company that “specializes” in being a “Jack-of-all-trades”. Do we want to compete with them? No. But does that mean we are frightfully expensive? Not at all! In fact, our goal is always to ensure that our customers get the best value for money and a landscape that makes them the envy of the neighbourhood without breaking the bank.

As we come across customers who do their due diligence by comparing quotes, we are very mindful and respectful of the fact that one needs to be price conscious. It’s when we are told about a competitive quote that implies “the other guy” can get the job done for less than it costs us to buy quality materials, the alarm bells go off. He needs a hefty deposit from you to pay his guys for the last job done, and of course, there is always that famous curbside taillight guarantee!

We would like to go on and tell you what we have learned and found out in these past 23 years but you wouldn't be able to read it all...

WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE TO ENGAGE OUR LANDSCAPING SERVICES IN TORONTO

All we want to say is this—we do top quality work with a guarantee you can count on, every single time. If it’s not to your liking we'll do what it takes to make it right. We'll be there in years to come, particularly if the weather has given the work a beating.

• We are fully covered with 5 million liability insurance and WSIB approved.
• Our crew is safety certified or they don't work for us.
• Our business has City of Toronto licensing.
• Each team member has government ID.
• We pay our taxes and are an ethical, honest, law-abiding enterprise.

Yes, you will find cheaper Toronto landscaping companies out there. Will you find one better than us in terms of reputation for quality work and customer references? Not likely.
