I'm looking to have some work done in my back yard and was wondering if I could maybe get a ballpark quote? I've attached a few pics of my current yard design and layout. As it is right now i have a low, 10x10 deck, and a 15x20 ground level yard that is currently landscaped with tiny smooth stone with plants along the sides.
I'm looking to resurface the current deck area with new wood, using the current frame. The other thing I want is to cover the remaining yard are (with the stones) with a low-profile/ground level deck. just framed off (as low and level as i can get it) with the matching wood that will be used on the deck. Basically, i want to deck the entire yard. It's not that big, pretty much your average tiny city yard, but i think we can get the look i'm hoping for.
My girlfriend and I just had a baby so we need to overhaul the yard to make it a bit more baby friendly. I'll also be putting a small railing around the 10x10 deck.
here are some pictures. thanks so much.
We have a backyard of approximately 67 sq meters that needs to be renovated and are looking for ideas for a very low maintenance solution.
There are some stones we currently want to get rid off and build a new fence.
We are located in Toronto.
Please, let me know who would be interested in the job.
The retaining wall needs to be repaired as stipulated by City of Toronto. Some of the railroad ties are rotten and the wall needs to be plumbed. The contractor must provide a quote and a completion date before January 28th, 2010. Here are the details of what the city wants as per their Order.
1) The retaining wall is not being maintained in good repair. Namely retaining wall has rotten wooden sections and is not in plumb condition.
2) The limb or branch, which is located on the property is decayed or damaged and has not been removed or otherwise pruned to remove the decayed or damaged portion. Namely, broken tree branch overhanging retatining wall to be removed.
The retaining wall is 55 feet wide and approximately 2.5 to 3 feet high. There is an old fence on top of the retaining wall. We also have a cedar hedge on our side of the fence and the neighbour to our back also has a cedar hedge. We need to replace the retaining wall and also replace the fence.
We wish to spend the least amount of money required i.e. we are NOT looking for any fancy solution. We also need a quote within 2-3 days as we need to decide on a contractor and send the quote to the City.
Looking at options
Gravel with stone, pavers or extended asphalt to the back of the lot. It is about 490 sq ft. We are open to options as the driveway also needs to be done. Motivated to start and get this finished.
One thought was place gravel then large Patio stones as a form of walkway.
Our basement has never been finished. It's around 800 sq.feet. House was built in 2006. Need to have a 1 bedroom apt. with small kitchen, washroom and laundry room. Project should be completed possibly in August.
Good quality material, nothing over the top. Budget is around 25000.
We would like to see previous jobs done by Contractor + references from customers.
We are in need of a contractor to tear down and remove all materials of our deck. We would like to replace the area with a temporary rock/gravel surface, and build a simple staircase from our patio doors to the ground (no deck). Can you provide a quote for this work?
3 years ago, my wife and I did some renovations in the interior of our old Victorian home but did not have enough money to do anything outside. Now we would like to turn out backyard into an outdoor living space and do some landscaping in the front yard which would include addressing the grading of the grounds away from the house as well as the retaining wall and steps going to the basement door needs to be rebuild. So we are currently accepting quotes from various contractors to do this work. Contractors will need to be able to provide us with references of previous work as well as being licensed.
Along front pad parking in front yard, we require a low retaining wall to replace the existing wall. This is more decorative than functional, it is to compliment our garden. THIS IS A SMALL JOB, 24 FT LONG. We would need some samples of brick as we have some ideas in mind of the type of brick and colour. Prefer natural colours; beige and light greys.

Hello Adrian here in the Toronto area. My bottom pre-fab concrete step is broken for which needs to be fix however also where the steps sit the ground has also sunk so water pools there.
What I am looking for is to remove the steps, patio stones, level the ground (packed well or concrete base) with a gradient to the side walk, possibly re-use the patio stone and new steps. Looking to get done ASAP and of course for the right price.
I need to have front and back of house landscaped. Backyard is just sand (will need grading, top soil, and hardscape) Front (small) has grass with cement walkway which needs to be removed and walkway laid out.
I would like a student or small Landscape co just starting out in landscaping that has some experienced. I do not want a large Landscaping Company as pricing is way too high!.
Car has hit my chainlink fence, hedge and retaining wall, Insurance claim, need old materials removed and new installed.
Prefer a privacy fence, new retaining wall, and landscaping ( cedar hedge preferred) also want new driveway in the back of house, 16' x 32' (pavement)
Complete missing section of backyard fence, build retaining wall for front garden.
Fence Side 1 width is 19 feet, 3 posts of 3.5" and height 82". Height of wood boards including 1 feet lattice is 77".
Fence Side 2 width is 12 feet and will take 4 posts. Including small gate. This section has concrete as the pics will show.
lot size is ~20 x 9 feet wide
I don't want expensive stone, Piazza blocks or similar product will be ok.
I have the locates.
Completely overhaul our front and back yards (see first pic). Front yard should look like the two photos (attached) with foliage. Back yard plan must include: dog run, hot tub, utility shed, dining space, perimeter fencing. Looking for a phased plan on the assumption that we can continue to incorporate elements over time.
We are looking to level off our front yard. It currently starts at street level and slopes up to about 4.5 feet high. It's about 30' wide by 20'. Our understanding is that there is interlocking brick under the dirt that the original owner covered over. We want to remove the dirt and see what's underneath and maybe do some repair and new landscaping. We would like it levelled all to street level. We're also looking for some work to be done in our back yard - extend an existing 10' by 11' deck by 10' by 3', remove the existing railings on the existing deck, install a flagstone patio of about 20' by 8', install a stone retaining wall garden box of about 2' by 6' and replace an existing 40' long chain link fence with pressure treated fence (like the ready-made kind you can find at home depot). Maybe also paint the deck and fence. Access to the backyard is a bit difficult through a narrow right of way at the top of a flight of stairs (about 20 stairs) because the house is built on a slope.
Front porch is on an a severe angle away from the house. Currently it is a covered and enclosed porch with sashed windows. Overall I need recommendations and quotes for the options to repair and/or rebuild/redesign the front porch. I would also like to add a design element for the storage of garbage bins.Porch is approximately 17' by 5'. House is semidetached built in the 1920's. There are two brick posts on which the current wooden porch is built. cement stairs lead up to the porch.
The back deck is impoperly built and rotten. It also serves as a roof for the back basement entrance to a basement apartment. The yard needs proper grading for drainage mangement and a new raised deck(6' from the ground) needs to be built and redesigned. New fences and gate are also required. Again the deck would be about 17' wide but possibly with two depths to account for the entrance to the basement. Storage elements will need to be built in for garden equipment, bicycles etc.
