Landscaping

AK group comprised of Kevin, Andrew & their dad Sam and a large hardworking team.

Kevin was the first contact when I requested for a quote. Came on time as planned and asked for what were our needs. Based on that he created a lovely layout of the whole plan on some software. I liked the fact that he provides his input based on what our vision for the project was. So we made few tweaks and changes that made sense from a professional viewpoint.
He was honest from the get go which made communication very easy.

The project took around 10 days as was promised. They had a big team of around 8-10 each day show up on time and worked through the scorching hot summer days.
Communication with their team was hard since they didn’t speak English, so all communication was with Kevin or Andrew mostly. From the start to finish communication was really smooth through text (since they were busy with other projects running parallel to ours). If there any tweaks or changes required while the project was ongoing, they discussed it with us and make changes upon our approval.
I liked the fact that they didn’t cut corners and gave us honest assessments on how things should be done right.

Based on all the quotes we got, they were definitely somewhere in the middle, however based on their service provided they are no lesser than the higher end ones I would think!

I would definitely recommend them for any landscaping jobs and will be our first contact for any of our future jobs.

Thanks once again team AK!!

Deck Renovation

Second job with AK. We were really happy with their previous work on our driveway and porch.
Their work renovating our deck was first rate. They had incorporated finishing details (that took time) we had not thought of, but improved the final look immensely.

Backyard Project

We are very pleased with the work AK Contracting did in our backyard. From the very beginning, Kevin and his team were very professional and most importantly, very honest. In addition to that, the work they do is spectacular. They were very helpful with ideas but never pushed away from our taste. We are very happy with the final project. We would defiantly get AK Contracting to do some future work and we highly recommend them. Thank you Kevin, Andrew and the rest of the gang for the fantastic job.

Driveway Replacement

Andrew and his team have done a fantastic job to my driveway. I’m amazed by their fast pace and workmanship. It was only four days from the day I accepted the quote to the day the job was completed. I was lucky that he was able to squeeze the task into his busy schedule in such short time. Andrew responded within an hour after I submitted the request for a quote for my driveway. He and his team completed my driveway in just one day which is faster than he estimated. There’s no garbage left behind and the driveway looked nice and clean when it was done. The quote was fair. Andrew kept me in the loop at all times as to the ordering and delivery of the stones as well as the removal of the old interlocking stones. The only con I have is that the water valve on my driveway was broken when the guy removed the existing interlocking stones. I have to contact City of Toronto to have it fixed.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review Alice. It was tricky arranging to slot in a new project on such a short notice but we're glad everything worked out for the best (albeit with some small hiccups along the way)
We look forward to working with you in the future.

interlocking stone, flagstone, garden beds

Great job. Kevin's team did the design (nice graphics tool), excavated the garden beds and for the stone work, laid the stones, and filled the garden beds with soil and wood chips. All in a week!

Great landscaping, interlocking and sodding

This is a great company and I highly recommend them for anyone who is looking to get some landscaping done. They do an amazing job, and are quick and efficient. The job was done a lot faster than the estimated times we were giving by other contractors and at a very competitive price as well. They are great with responding to any inquiries quickly as well. The end result looked amazing, clean and flawless when they were done. It was so good that we are now in the works of getting the front yard redone by them as well.
Kevin is very knowledgeable, and comes up with great design plans within a couple days, and let’s you know what to expect during the process and and what maintenance should be done by you afterwards as well to keep things looking great!

cedar trees planting, paver replacements

After my original landscaper disappeared on me, I found AK Group contracting. I hired them to bring my exterior landscaping to the finish line as my old landscaper left me at 95% complete. Kevin and Andrew are very good at listening to what the customer wants. They truly make the effort to satisfy the client without rushing to complete the job.

Frontyard landscape

I had a wonderful experience to deal with Ak Group. They are professionals in constructing landscape. Many neighbors appreciate the outcome and their workmanship. They could provide a lot of advice in choosing material as well. I am anticipating to work with them again to build a nice landscape in our backyard next summer.
