I am completely impressed with Tough Oaks Landscaping. They promptly and professionally repaired my entry stairs and landing which had not been properly installed initially. Over the years the slab steps were being pushed forward, everything was shifting, and the landing was sinking. The situation was difficult due to other features such as retaining walls and columns. Tough Oaks analyzed the situation and presented me with a number of options with clearly defined cost breakdowns. They kept me informed and completed the job quickly and thoroughly. They were highly professional, very personable and genuine. My stairs and landing are now secure and look better than new!
We thoroughly enjoyed working for you, and we were glad that we were able to help you out with this common dilemma constructed by the previous contractor. We have found that over the years, several homeowners have called us to fix the problems constructed by their original contractors or problems they inherited when purchasing a home from a set of steps, walkway, driveway, or patio, that were not initially installed correctly. We see it all the time, unsuspecting homeowners get taken advantage of by contractors that either don't have the experience to know how to do the project correctly or they cut corners. We have undertaken countless projects of this nature to help out homeowners over the years. The projects that we build from scratch, from the beginning to the finish are quality that always last, we make sure of it. We warranty our new build projects. Our creations are excavated correctly and built with 30 years experience, to ensure it is done right from the start. Thanks again for choosing Tough Oaks Landscaping we appreciate your referrals.
Ralph and his wife were on time did a great job at a reasonable price. Would highly recommend this company.
Thank you. We are happy to be of service for such nice people.
Fantastic experience with Ralph and Cynthia. They were diligent, informative, knowledgeable, and kept us apprised of everything throughout the entire project. They were fair and honest with costs and given the final result, we are incredibly happy we chose them to take on this project for us. The curb appeal of our home has undoubtedly increased thanks to Tough Oaks. Would absolutely recommend them for any landscaping project.
I really have nothing but great things to say about them. They were very professional, hard working but still took the time to stop and answer any questions I may have had or to update me with any changes and progress. My porch had prior water issues leaking in from the cold storage vent and Ralph made sure to correct that. The design he created suits the house perfectly.
I'm not very experienced with whole gardening thing and Ralph made suggestions that even I couldn't kill (Challenge accepted). I felt bad for them because the weather was not cooperating with them but they pushed on. There wasn't a single moment where I was worried they weren't going to show up - were trying to inflate the cost, or manipulate me into anything other than what we had agreed on. He was very open about everything and I respected that. I genuinely have nothing negative to say about them and I'd hire them again without hesitation.
Thank you for the great review. There was never a dull moment. Everyday was a joy to work here, sharing in the best witty humour. Well at least we didn't have snow. No matter what the weather was dealing at us, the company was tops. Thank You for trusting in our ability, brimming with enthusiasm in every moment, truly a positive, uplifting experience. Our only regret is that the project is done. We look forward to the chance to visit in the future, and hope that you have a lifetime of enjoyment from your new stonework as you continue to make your home your unique castle. It's truly custom, one of a kind, which will shine for many years to come. It will be super exciting to get the photos posted, and see how you decorate it to make it pop for each season.
