John in Mississauga with Extreme Landscape Group
“He gave us great advice and a number of options and accurate estimates of costs. The job was done efficiently without complications by a very friendly and considerate work crew.”
John from Mississauga, Ontario, first hired Rick from Extreme Landscape group to do a minor clean up his front landscape. After making small improvements to John’s front yard and some major changes to his backyard, John decided to hire Rick to fully transform the front of his home. The project scope included re-doing the driveway, replacing the shrubs that had died in the previous winters, and installing new lights. Rick preserved the living plants and trees and his design mimicked the original layout which ended up saving John money. With Rick’s help, John ended up with a beautiful front yard for less – the right pro really does make all the difference.
Camille in Vancouver with Vinca Landscape
“It was a pleasure working with Mario and his team to turn my ideas into an incredibly beautiful, private front garden retreat.”

Colin in Edmonton with APS Landscaping
“I could have gone with a cheaper option, or even combined professional services with DIY options, however the result speaks for itself.”
Colin from Edmonton, Alberta, had a few goals for his outdoor project – he needed to meet city regulations on his small lot, preserve as much grass as possible for his son to enjoy, and add some much-needed curb appeal and value to his property. APS Landscaping was able to complete every aspect of the job, which included, sodding, working with limestone, and landscaping and was able to match Colin’s budget for the project. After three days of hard work, Colin’s home had never looked better. They cleaned up his front and backyard meticulously to ensure the neighbours wouldn’t be disturbed. Colin is confident he’s added a good amount of curb appeal and property value to his home. The best part about upping your curb appeal is that it’s often the little projects that have the biggest impact.
Shaun in Surrey with Abba Landscaping Inc
“When the work started, Jairo and his team were always on time and communicated with me daily, letting me know what they were doing and what the plans were for the next day.”
Before working with ABBA Landscaping, Shaun in Surrey, British Columbia, had never hired someone for major work on his home. He and his wife interviewed almost over 20 contractors before deciding that Abba Landscaping was the right business for the job. Shaun says he has never been happier with the way the front of his house looks, and after seeing the project photos we understand why.
