Backyard Turfing

In the summer of 2017 Zen completed a turfing job in about 2/3 of my backyard very much to my satisfaction. (see my review of that job). The other third was given new sod. It didn't long to realize with two large dogs the sod was not going to stay nice so we contracted Zen to turf the rest of the yard for the spring of 2018. It turned out they could not source enough matching turf to the existing job and we had to choose either a shorter or longer blade to complete the new section. We chose the longer blade. When the job was done the matching of the two different lengths did not look good plus the installers had difficulty with matching seams properly. Neither Zen nor I was happy with the finished results. They promised they would make it right and they did. They pulled up all the turf in the entire back yard and re-turfed it all in the longer blade product. Needless to say this was a costly fix but Zen only charged the amount they had originally quoted. The finished result is absolutely beautiful and we are very happy with it and the excellent customer service we received.

Hi Lise,
We are beyond happy that we were able to complete and remedy this for you. Turf is one of the lowest maintenance landscaping options for groundcover, and also one of the most expensive. Being so, we believe it must be to the highest quality and installation standards and leave the customer feeling all warm and fuzzy. It also helps that we work with an amazing subcontractor (Tuffturf Canada) that stand behind their material and install, who worked diligently with us to leave you with those warm and fuzzy feelings. Hope you fill up all that saved maintenance time with family, friends, and all things wonderful! Call us anytime for your next project.
Sincerely,
Zen Team

Exceptionally well built fence/gate

From the quote to the completed project, Josh and his company provide very professional service with quality workmanship. We would highly recommend Zen construction to anyone. They were quick, detailed, and cleaned up well, they even were careful of the plants in the gardens. We hired them a few years back, and again now. We will no doubtfully be hiring their crew in the future for our next project!

HUGE WEEPING TILE JOB

I definitely picked the right company when I picked Josh and Zen Construction to do my Large weeping tile job. There were a few glitches along the way as in any job but Josh and his crew rectified the issues quickly. Looking forward to having them back in the spring to do our landscaping. Thank you Josh and your boys AWESOME JOB.

Hey Steve,
Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review. Referrals and word of mouth are the best advertising money can't buy! Yes, jobs tend to have a hiccup here and there, but it's how we deal with them that makes us who we are. Looking forward to completing the landscaping in the Spring. Until then, have a wonderful winter season - Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and the best to you and yours for New Years 2018!
Best Regards,
Zen Construction Team

Driveway, landscaping, interlock

Zen did our backyard patio last year and we were so happy with their work that we had them back to do our front yard this year. They continued the interlock from our back patio, up the side of our house and in front. They also did our driveway and put in a garden. They worked hard each day they were here and cleaned up at the end of each day. They were very professional and finished the job in a timely manner. Since the job has been complete, we have had numerous people stop us or ring our door bell asking who did the work. Several of our neighbours have contacted them for a quote as well. We are thrilled with their work and can't believe how great our yard looks. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for quality work.

Turf and sod in back yard

Once again Josh and his crew made me very happy with the turf and sod job they did in my back yard. With two large dogs running vigorously my yard was not in very good shape. I asked Josh for suggestions and he recommended artificial turf. His courteous crew were a delight to have around. Always friendly and willing to listen and help with everything. I live on a corner lot and have a lot of people walking by. There have been so many comments on how nice it looks. The crew put in extra tacking after seeing how active the dogs were. Loved working with Zen Construction and will definitely be using them again in the future.

Property fence, 2 privacy screens, 2 deck extensions

Exceptional is how I would describe my experience with Zen. From start to end. The owner Josh was able to clearly understand the exact look I was going for with the horizontal clean line property fence, and also gave experienced insight into other issues I was not aware of regarding the deck extensions. I can't begin the thank the crew that worked on all of the jobs, they were professional, social and extremely hardworking. Their workmanship and work ethic clearly shows in the overall look of my amazing backyard. I could not be happier. Although Zen was a bit more money compared to the 2 other quotes I had received, I could tell by the first and second meeting that the service would be outstanding....and it truly was. I do believe that when I research a service or product, that the person leaving a review is being completely honest and I can use the reviews in order to base my final decision, I do hope that anyone looking to have Zen complete any job for them takes my insanely happy and positive review into consideration. You will be very happy in the end!

Wow Crystal, we love your insanely happy and positive review! I will make sure to pass along the kindhearted words to our crew. Always feels good when the customers notice how hard working and dedicated the crews are. We strive to build a team that works well and pushes each other towards greatness - and I think have done quite good so far! And yes, with our custom designs and top quality craftsmanship, we can be a little more costly than the competitors, but as you said, it is worth it. Looking forward to hearing from you again sometime. Hope you have a wonderful summer!
Many thanks,
Zen Team

Outdoor Living Space

Last summer Zen Construction renovated our backyard. We worked together with Josh to create this beautiful outdoor living space. The crew was very hard working and treated the job as of it were at their own home. We were so happy with the end result, we have booked them to do our driveway this fall. Once again Josh came up with a great idea...thank you Zen Construction.

Levelling interlocking brick

Our interlocking brick in front of the garage and our walk way to the front door had sunk over the years. My husband and I are hands on people but this was not a task we wanted to take on. Our neighbours had their driveway and walkways levelled by Zen Construction and I was impressed by the workmanship and called immediately to get a quote. Josh came by and gave us a quote and at that time Josh mentioned that the job would likely not be done until September but possibly sooner which was fine with us. I got a call from Josh to tell me that they could fit me in this week - (July 26/17) which made me quite happy.
The workers showed up at the time that I was told and Sylvester came to our door to introduce himself and we went over what was to be done, which was exactly what Josh had quoted me and they got to work. The job was done in a very timely manner and we are EXTREMELY happy with the outcome. It looks amazing, looks like new!.
I must mention that it was evident that Sylvester took great pride in his work. I would highly recommend Zen Construction for whatever project you may be considering.

Wow, thank you so much Chrissie for this review. One of the toughest aspects in our office is scheduling and keeping within timelines. With unpredictable weather and additions or changes to quoted jobs, this tasks takes much knowledge and experience - both of which Josh has plenty of! We are very pleased that we were able to come in before expected and finish within budgeted time. And yes, Sly is one of the BEST stone masons we have ever met. He does take great pride in his work and craftsmanship, leaving no stone 'un-turned'. Looking forward to hearing from you for any future projects. But for now, we hope you enjoy your front interlock for many many years to come. Have a wonderful summer!

Sincerely,
Zen Team
