Kerr & Kerr completely landscaped the front and backyard of inner city home, following the specifications of our landscape designer. We are extremely happy with the results. We found the Kerr Landscaping team to be very professional and hardworking, following up with us about any changes and making suggestions and recommendations which improved the final result. Dave was a pleasure to work with, his attention to detail and previous experience were much appreciated. Also it was particularly important to us that the plan we started with was taken very seriously and if changes were suggested, he call the architect and get a second opinion. Finally, any delays due to weather (always a factor outdoors) were compensated for as best as he and his team could resulting in a very timely project. Any concerns we had were dealt with in a timely fashion. We would not hesitate to recommend Kerr & Kerr Landscaping.

Just a short note to let you know Jill and I are completely satisfied with the work you did to our property. Although it was more than we wanted to pay it was certainly completed in a professional manner. You certainly get what you pay for. Also, both Jim and Chas are great employees and obviously you are as pleased with them as we were. Both have great personalities and provide humour along the way. In closing, thanks for the excellent workmanship and we will certainly use your services again.

Well, finally, we are writing to you to formally and officially (!) express our appreciation for the work you and your team did in helping us realize our deck/pergola and landscaping project. It has all come together, beautifully, and some aspects have matured nicely over this past year, so we thought we should put into writing what we have already expressed orally to you many times. It began in the deep of winter (was it three years ago now?) when you came to visit with your landscape designer and deck designer/carpenter to listen to our ideas, offer some of your own, and then went away to produce some concept drawings. After several meetings and discussions, the plans were fine-tuned, and you developed your detailed plans, with work to begin in the spring. One wet day in early April, your crew arrived with their chain saws, wrecking ball, and earthmoving equipment, and in an amazingly short period of time our old deck, some fencing, and a huge Euonymous hedge were gone. We marveled at the lay-outwork done by your crew, for both the deck and the landscaping, which included raised stone beds, cobblestone patios, drainage systems, and several flower beds. The work was not without its challenges! That April, it seemed to rain almost every day, leaving the construction site a soggy,muddy quagmire. It was difficult to imagine that the resulting chaos would evolve into the beautiful finished product which we have today…but it certainly did. Once the landscaping and the deck were ultimately completed, the next phase included a few more meetings and conversations with you and the landscape designer, to design a landscape lighting plan. That put the finishing touch on the project! At the beginning, you gave us a commitment that you would not rest until we were completely happy with the result. During the construction phase, both you, and the deck carpenter, graciously accommodated minor design changes as the maturing project generated new ideas. Once the project was fully completed, you returned several times to make adjustments to the landscaping and lighting, and to follow up on your commitment to the site re-mediation. And the fine tuning goes on, as you have agreed to move some ferns to a different area in the spring, as they are getting too much sun in their initial location. In summary, our back yard has been transformed into a place we thoroughly enjoy, and of which we are very proud. It provides us with a wonderful entertaining backdrop. Through your guidance and leadership, your crews succeeded in a job well-done!We are most impressed by your commitment and follow-through to do whatever it takes to ensure that we are completely satisfied. We have no hesitation in recommending Kerr & Kerr to anyone looking for major, or minor, landscaping. All the best of the season, Dave.

Two years ago we had Kerr & Kerr Landscaping install a stone patio in our backyard. The work was completed on schedule, the communication from the quote process through the entire job was excellent, all our questions were answered, the guys did a great job cleaning up and the end result was a beautiful patio that still gets rave reviews. We love it so much that this year we decided it was time for our home to have some ‘curb appeal’. We didn’t hesitate in having Kerr & Kerr return and transform our front yard into an oasis. We have not been disappointed with the outcome of both projects and would not hesitate in recommending them. We can’t wait for spring to get the bistro set out and a glass (or two) of our favourite beverage and try out the new front yard!!!

Patrick and I would like to thank you for the level of professionalism, hard work and commitment you and your team exhibited in doing the work we contracted for in August 2009.
We had looked for several years for a contractor with the knowledge and ability to translate our vision for a new driveway, front porch and professional landscaping into reality.
You immediately understood the scope of the project and drew an architectural design which clearly put our vision on paper. Then you proceeded to make it happen. Where it was obvious a design change had to happen to make it work, you did so after consulting us and recommending a course of action. An example of this was when the design called for armour stone to end prior to reaching the front sidewalk. This did not look good when done, so you added the required armour stone to the sidewalk. You also accommodated our change in plan, part way through the project, where we decided to remove the overgrown tree in the front yard after all.
The end result is a professional, pleasing, beautifully landscaped and safe front yard.
Many neighbours and strangers have commented on how good it looks, yet does not overpower the neighbourhood. Passersby also commented on how polite your team was in doing the work, ensuring no equipment blocked the roadway or sidewalk during the construction.
Almost a year after the project has been completed you have continued to follow up on the status of the landscaping to ensure all is well with the trees, plants, and new grass.
As a result of your work, we have recommended Kerr and Kerr Landscaping to anyone we know who requires this kind of work.
A sincere thank you to you and your team.
