Walkway & Driveway

Kurt and his team did such a great job with my back patio 5 years ago, there was only 1 company I wanted to complete my walkway and drivewayand they did not disappoint! The team for the walkway and the team for the driveway were polite and respectful. Cleanup was fantastic as well! It was a pleasure to talk with all of them and work with Kurt.

Looking forward to the next project!

Landscaping, new stairs

After just a short 4 years my front steps are rusted and the sidewalk has shifted. They obviously used zinc coats concrete anchors rather than stainless to secure new railings to the steps unload to me. Looks ugly now. Sidewalk needs to be lifted and done again already. Tried to make contact several times. Left msg. No return calls. Guess there is no guarantees for the work done and your in your own.

Backyard Overhaul

We needed a complete overhaul of the backyard, it was covered in gravel and poor quality fill. Kurt and his team came in, removed old decking and transformed the space into a beautiful lawn in just under 2 days. Everything was quick and efficient and Kurt was a pleasure to deal with.

Backyard Patio and Garden

Kurt and team did a fabulous job creating a Patio and fenced Garden area, in addition to laying a foundation for our future Greenhouse. They were polite, efficient and very thorough in the installation and clean up of our project. Additionally, the estimate provided was very accurate, and allowed for tweaking during installation. We just had the pleasure of enjoying a fire on our new Patio for New Year's Eve. Thanks Kurt and team, we look forward to working with you on our next project!

Total renovation of back and side yards

Our backyard needed a complete overhaul - removal of a rotting wood retaining wall, regrading and resodding the entire back and side yard, and building it all back again with a new retaining wall and interlock patio.

Kurt's quote was competitive with others we received and he took the time to understand what we wanted for the space. We were confident moving forward given the commitment and attention to detail he pays to each project and are so glad we chose Distinctive Designs for ours!

Kurt ordered our chosen pavers well in advance (they wouldn't have been available if he hadn't had the foresight to do so), he was onsite every day which meant he was always accessible if we had any questions (we rarely did as he proactively told us what he'd be doing and why), and he gave us lots of ideas and his opinions without ever being pushy (there were a couple instances he steered us away from potential options because he felt it wouldn't be good value for our money).

Kurt's crew is also amazing. They are punctual, hard working and so polite. All of our neighbours commented on the quality of the work, how clean the site was left each day, and how friendly the crew was.

I highly recommend Kurt and the crew from Distinctive Designs and look forward to working with them on future projects!

Walkways & Driveway

We hired Kurt and his team to replace our old interlocked walkways, front porch and driveway. Kurt and his team provided great service at a reasonable price and made the entire experience pleasant and stress free. Kurt was extremely professional and very quick to respond when we had any questions or concerns. It was obvious that he wanted to ensure we were completely satisfied with the finished project. We were extremely pleased with the end result and have had many compliments on the work.

Replacement of stone pathway, steps and porch

I am extremely happy I hired Distinctive Designs Landscaping for this project. Kurt and the crew have done a wonderful job and I am very grateful. The project threw a ‘curveball’ during demolition but Kurt offered up a couple of solutions, mindful of the original estimate and took the time to explain everything. The crew on site were extremely hard working and the job site was left spotless at the end of each day. A very impressive company and I would have no hesitation in recommending DDL to anyone who asks.

Full property landscaping

Great experience working with the team at Distinctive Designs from the start, when Kurt was helping me figure out the design, to finish. The whole team was friendly and professional and the final product is beyond my wildest hopes. I'm looking forward to enjoying my outdoor space for years to come!
