Sodding Grass

I found Captain Handy online based on their great reviews and they delivered! They were on time, did a wonderful job sodding our grass and cleaned everything up and watered our grass. Super friendly.

Amazing Contractor, Total Revamp of my Backyard

I went to Homestars and chose Captain Handy based upon reviews, I could not have chosen better. I wanted a revamp entirely of my backyard, but was struggling with what to do.

Alex came by immediately offering his professional advice assistimg me with the design and provided a quote within a day.
The work started almost immediately.

We decided to put in interlocking, new fence with a gate for one side of the property, some new grass, a retaining wall and flower bed., pebble rock under fire escape.

First thing every day Alex would come make sure everything was going as planned. The team was super professional, worked long days and the work was continuously done until complete.
Alex was always, repsonsive if I had questions, and was willing to tweak things as we went.

The team removed the entire back yard, cleaned up every day, was always considerate of the neighbours area when putting up the fence.
Over 22 years of using contractors for various things, I have never had such a great exeperience with a contractor.

I now have a beautiful backyard within 7 days of hard work from the Team.

I highly recommend Captain Handy!!!

Large driveway with pavers and patio deck

Highly recommend Alex and his crew. They started and completed on time and within budget quoted- no hidden surprises.
All were very professional, courteous and hard working. Cleaned up at the end of each day and at end of project, hauling it all away. Very Happy with whole project.

So Happy

The reason I called Captain Handy was because of their positive feedback on HomeStars and we are so glad we did. I live in a townhome with a shared front yard but I wanted to remove the grass, widen the driveway, replace the steps and create a privacy screen between the 2 homes to also hide the meter. We are so happy with how it all turned out. Alex and the crew were professional, clean, fast and wonderful at troubleshooting. Being in a townhome I was most worried about disrupting my neighbour's side and the crew did a great job at managing that. Terrific quality and service - we will definitely be calling them for future projects !

Fast, efficient, excellent work

Alex and his team started our project very soon after we first spoke, which was nice because we didn’t have to wait. We needed a patio built in our small downtown backyard. I had an idea of the kind of interlock I wanted and Alex sourced some products for me to choose from. He made good suggestions for the way it should look and came up with a last-minute solution for a detail I had overlooked. They worked hard and were very patient with our street-parking issues. I highly recommend Captain Handy!

Backyard Patio Landscaping

Alex and his team built a backyard stone patio and walkway for me. Alex was prompt in responding to my initial inquiry and his team was friendly, professional, and efficient. I am very happy with the quality of their work and I can honestly say they are the most reliable team of contractors I have worked with.
