Landscape border/river rock/stepping stones

After getting other quotes and meeting with other landscapers, I decided that Josh from Zen seemed to be the one who was actually hearing what I wanted to achieve. He made suggestions for saving money but still keeping the project looking the way I wanted it to look. Ruban and his crew were great. The project was done within the promised timeframe, they were courteous and efficient and were open to minor changes to improve the final look of the work. I have no problem recommending Zen based on my experience.

Excellent Deck

Zen Construction did an amazing job in building our back deck. They included all our requests, built the deck on time and at a reasonable price. Very high quality work. Josh was great to work with and the crew was efficient, friendly and professional. Highly recommended.

Backyard deck

Zen construction were fantastic throughout.
The quote was very fair and competitive.
Josh estimated that it would maybe take 2-3 days to complete the install of our new deck but much to our surprise and delight it was all completed in a day and a half, amazing!

We are very happy with the finished product, the speed and quality of the workmanship. We will be reaching out to Zen again with regards to some other landscaping we are interested in doing.
Would highly recommend Josh and his team.

Wayne and Jessie.

Reconstructing old flag stone walkway

I had an old flag stone walkway but now weeds were coming through and the smaller stones were coming loose. I fell in July and my neighbours recommended Zen Construction. Jose came the next day and told me they could lift the old flag stone walkway, clean them , replace smaller ones and put harden sand between them to keep the weeds down. In August they came on a very hot, humid day. The mosquitos were bad also, they worked hard all day with no complaints. I was amazed. It looked bigger but was the same area, by placing them closer and using more larger stones gives the illustration that is bigger. I love it and would recommend Zen Construction for any job , big or small. My front walkway needs replacing and I will call on them in the future.

interlocking stone patio

Guys showed early & worked their butts off, old patio gone in no time. Courteous & polite, with some humor thrown in. Job done quickly & good clean up. Came back to fix a couple of issues, all done now. Good job, very happy, would recommend.

Patio and Cabana

All of the Zen employees were hard working and courteous. They arrived early each morning and worked long days. All areas were cleaned up before leaving.
The 1st stage involved installation of piers or footings for the planned structure. Over a few days, the carpenters then constructed a beautiful Cabana from rough cut Douglas fir. Just as soon as they had finished, the patio crew arrived and started excavation. Days later, we had a beautiful patio to complete a perfect setting. The garden was then installed.
We would certainly recommend Zen Construction.
Josh has a great team of skilled employees. We would like to thank them for all their hard work. The pictures show the result.

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!
