You get what you pay for

Brad was great to deal with.... in the beginning. Seemed very honest and down to earth and usually a great judge of character. However, after paying the balance because I thought I could trust the final fixes to be done...it didn't happen.
There were issues that were never resolved and left TO MY OWN TO FIX !
** 2 YEAR WARRANTY AS THE AD STATES IS ONLY AS EFFECTIVE AS THE OWNER RETURNING YOUR CALLS and then....honouring the warranty**

1/ seemed to be 2 different crews working on my job. 1st half of patio stones was done pretty nicely....2nd part was obviously rushed, messy and not nice - obvious difference with overwash of grout.
2/ Clothes rack was smashed with the machinery, which Brad had credited so that I could purchase a new one. But, I had to remove the old one and dispose of it myself.
3/ The shed was raised to accommodate stone patio. Very shabby job done with "shimming" of scrap stone cuts, slabs and wood cuts and gravel that washed away causing shed to sink / tilt. This was eventually, "fixed" after multiple calls and a request to pay an additional $200 (which i refused), it was shimmed up again with more stone cuts but I could already see signs of stones washing away....will see what happens after winter.
4/ "wall stones' were much too high and unsupported which lead to them leaning over within a few months. I laboured myself to fix them by removing the top layer and removing and releveling the bottom layer. I had to do this as Brad no longer returned my calls at this time.
5/ The price of $4K + was comparatively low....but that was my mistake of taking the cheapest bid and now dealing with the outcomes.

Hello, I apologize that you were not satisfied. The crew consisted of myself and my two labourers until completion. The mess on one side happened after we finished and you had your deck built. I did advise if we only shim the shed it would not last long, but that's what kept it in the desired budget. my suggestion was to frame with wood supports ($200) which you refused. The "wall" was quoted as one row of curbing, after the work was done you insisted there be a second row installed and included. I suggested we not do this because the curbing should not be built that high which is why it shifted.

Front and Backyard Interlock Project

Brad and his team were exceptional to work with throughout the entire project - from proposal to planning, to starting the work and cleaning up the site. Brad was responsive every step of the way and the workmanship demonstrated by him and his team was outstanding. We are very happy with the end-result. Thank you!

It was a small job but

Brad and his crew treated it like it was the largest project they had ever worked on. They turned up on time, were pleasant, professional and willing to make suggestions that improved the project.

Being something of a 'neat freak' I appreciated how tidy there were, cleaning up at the end of the day, sweeping the street where they had had material dumped off.

We would recommend Cols landscaping without any reservation.

Backyard regrading and concrete patio removal

Brad and his team did an excellent job for us. We had a concrete patio in our backyard that started to sink and was tilting towards the house. It caused water to pool and seeped into our basement. Our backyard was also improperly graded, so it got quite swampy during rainy periods.

The team worked hard to remove the concrete patio (which was thicker than expected) then regraded with new soil and laid sod. They created a swale to guide water away from the house.

We especially appreciate that even though the work took longer than they estimated due to the concrete thickness, Brad kept to the quoted price.

We got the proof of their excellent work when the next rainstorm hit and our basement stayed dry. Thanks again Brad. And please relay our appreciation to your team members who were so friendly and worked so efficiently.

Amazing

Brad and his team did an amazing job in our backyard renovation. Since the beginning he managed to figure out a way to do the project despite our house didn't have machine access. They managed to get the job done in less than 3 days and it was exactly what we were looking for!

Backyard patio stone and deck

I had an amazing experience with Cols Landscaping. Karla was a great person to deal with. She was a great communicator before, during and post project. Everything was completed on time and on budget. Karla took time to visit, give a detailed estimate and drawings of the proposed changes. Other companies would only give quotes over email and very few would actually show up. The quote was even lower than other companies!
Brad and his team were very professional and some of the most polite workers that I've ever met. There were only minor issues with the workmanship and when I communicated my preference, the team was quick to correct it, no push back at all. I highly recommend this company! Check out the before and after pics.

Back Patio done in Interlocking Stone Pavers

The job entailed removal and disposal of old patio stones, digging out about 170 sq ft in our side yard, back filling with crushed stone and screenings, and laying a pattern of pavers and curbing with some custom cutting around irregular edges and posts. Brad and his crew had all the right equipment and did a beautiful job. They started and finished in the planned time frame. They were very friendly and helpful and stuck with the original price estimate even though they did some extra work not included in the quote. We recommend them strongly.

Front & Backyard Landscaping

Being a repeat customer, I am finally getting around to sharing my satisfaction with the work done by COLS Landscaping.

I used COLS a few years ago for my front path, steps, landing and driveway. I also had them build me a backyard patio last year and most recently some planting and border work.

Brad is great to deal with and his crew do fine quality work. He is easy going and puts in the extra effort to make sure you are completely satisfied either the work.
