Driveway, Front Porch, Walkway And Patio

"We have just had a pleasant experience working with Gta Landscaping. From the first time we met Vlad who helped us with the conceptual design, product selection and his well informed advice for the entire project around the house which we basically accepted and incorporated in the final design, to the time when the Gta Landscaping crews have completed the job in a skilled, well organized and a neat workmanship.
Vlad and the Gta Landscaping team are professional, organized and most importantly; honest. We would strongly recommend them for everyone, and would be happy to hire them again in the future."

New Front Yard Landscaping

"We recently hired Vlad and his guys to redo our front landscaping for us. New interlocking, steps and topped our porch. It was a relatively small job but Jay treated it just as if it were a bigger job and gave it the attention it deserved.

Vlad was very easy going and great to deal with. Our inquiries were always returned quickly. His guys were very friendly and professional throughout the whole job. They even came back to do some minor touch-ups the same day. Timelines were earlier than promised which was a bonus.

We're ecstatic about the way it turned out and have received many compliments from our neighbours on it since. I would highly recommend Vlad and Gta Landscaping to anyone!"

Backyard Renovation

After a long search for a reliable and excellent contractor we were able to find Vlad’s company on homestar. Vlad always made sure to return our call in a timely manner and answered any question we had. Vlad was very open and honest giving his expert advise. The team ensured that all of our request were addressed, at times last minute changes were accomodated very professionally to make sure his customers are happy. The team was very oragnized and made sure to keep tools etc in place and did not leave any mess behind after the work was done.

Backyard Patio

Vlad and his team from Gta Landscaping did a wonderful job on my backyard patio. Vlad has a great eye for detail, is patient with his clients, and spends time explaining the project so clients understand exactly what they’re getting done. I’ve had other contractors come out to do work in the past at my property but I have never had a wonderful and pleasant experience like this company has given me, thank you

Front And Back Interlock Installation

Gta Landscaping did a complete makeover of my backyard, walkway, part of my driveway, as well as my pool coping. I contacted Vlad from Gta Landscaping after doing much research. Vlad is highly experienced and knowledgeable. He spent a lot of time explaining how the issues I had encountered could be rectified. Once the work began, it was evident that the workmanship of Vlad and his team were top notch. Vlad and his team were very neat and respectful of my home. They tidied up everyday, and at the end, did a thorough cleanup of my property.

Great job, timely response, high quality

I appreciated the quick response from GTA Landscaping. I called and was told that Dimitry would call back and he did. He was very responsive and patient while I navigated exactly what I needed. All of the men that completed the job were so friendly and responsive to my questions. Overall a great experience and I have already recommended them.

Interlocking

We had our driveway redone and we couldn’t have been happier with the results.
The price was right on the budget, service was implacable and the timing was exactly as promised.
We would highly recommend, give them a call you have nothing to lose.
Our backyard landscaping is next on our list as soon as the weather is right.
Thank you to all the team workers, your work is professional and outstanding.

Back-yard rip off.

My wife and I hired GTA landscaping to build a wood deck, complete a stone patio and rebuild a fence in our back yard last spring prior to COVID hitting. We’ve had a really terrible experience with Vlad and GTA landscaping. Please take this review as a cautionary tale; I would strongly discourage you from hiring this company. Buyer beware.

Initially we were quite happy with how things were progressing; the guys on the jobsite were great and Vlad was very responsive. Later in the job we noticed some issues with the quality of the work. A high-pressure nail gun was used to build the fence which led to over half of the boards chipping leaving it quite unsightly. We brought this up after the fence was partially completed and we were assured that any chipped boards would be quickly replaced. Instead, the rest of the fence was completed and over half of the boards had obvious deformities and quickly developed rust stains from cheap nails.

We made a good faith agreement with Vlad and paid for the entire project prior to the final walk through. This was done in the height of the COVID pandemic, and as my wife and I are both health care workers (and I work in a COVID testing center), we felt it would be safer for Vlad's crew and us to regroup when things had settled down. This was done before the various government subsidies were rolled out, and I also felt it was done in good faith to ensure his employees were paid prior to the first lockdown. This was a huge mistake.

After we paid Vlad, even with our agreement, it became nearly impossible to get a hold of him. Previously Vlad would respond in minutes day or night, now messages and voicemails were left with no response. I became suspicious that Vlad was screening his calls, and called him from my wife’s phone to ask about the status of our job. Vlad always made excuses about how he was working on a larger more lucrative job, or that he responded to texts or emails when he clearly didn’t. On the phone he would act like we were crazy and that he had responded with one excuse after another, but strangely he was never able to provide evidence he had responded. He would say that such chipping was normal – I’m no carpentry expert but I know pilot holes will prevent cracking boards. And I welcomed him to see one of the many fences in the neighborhood that looked great.

This went on for months. At times we’d have a plan to have a meeting to go over the remaining work. Either he wouldn’t show, or once he’d be nearly an hour late and I’d have to cancel the meeting to go to work. During that meeting he took pictures which I later noticed he had the gall to post them on his company’s facebook page and advertised our project as a completed job.

Below is a partial log of our communication with Vlad. This is only one month.

June 4th - meeting - didn’t show
June 5th - meeting - showed up 50 minutes late, posted photos on facebook
June 19th - email - no response
June 24th - email - no response
June 27th - call - Vlad asked for dates and times of availability over the next two weeks
June 28th - wife emailed with dates/times - no response
July 4th - text - no response
July 5th - email from wife - no response
July 6th - text and voicemail - response with plan to have someone inspect deficiencies same evening
July 6th - didn’t show
July 8th – send email with request for availability to repair fence – no response

Later in the summer he sent a worker to mark boards with a plan to show up the following day to replace the boards, he didn’t show up and I haven’t heard from Vlad or anyone else from his company since. We decided to give up. I took care of the fence myself.

Vlad, you did a terrible job. You know this, and you had plenty of opportunities to make things right, and you chose not to. Look at the photos. Are you proud of this work? We paid your company before the work was done to ensure your guys got paid prior to the first COVID lockdown. Why didn’t you hold your end of the bargain?

Buyer beware.

Thanks Joel,
The work was done with great quality and we came over to check it
In terms of the fence boards splitting is a normal thing as i mentioned before. I clearly told you that small fence board splits are a normal occurrence and we can change them in the off season. There were a few boards to change on the fence which is a tiny portion of the project.
The patio, the Ipe deck, lighting and all else was done to a 100%.

Max came back and did change a couple boards in the summer but you wanted to change more. He said that we will be back later for those.

Overall you were a great client and we do appreciate your business. Sorry that you had a bad experience with us. If there is anything we can do we would happily do it for you
