Q: How do I chose the right contractor for any job?
A: Choosing the right contractor for your project is crucial for both piece of mind and quality of work. After all this is your dream home, do you want it in the hands of an inexperienced contractor?
The landscaping and construction industry does suffer from poor quality workmanship as many other trades do. Unfortunately some contractors seek to make a quick buck, offer poor, sub-par work and leave many unhappy clients in their wake. Often repairs and tear outs are common practice to fix the mistakes. Thankfully these people do not last.
If you are unsure we would suggest meeting with several contractors. You need to feel comfortable and trust that the contractor is going to follow through with what is proposed. Are they a licensed and insured company? Do they have a website? Can they provide informative and competent answers to your questions? You can expect to ‘get what you pay for’ with many trades, and cheapest isn’t always the best option.
Does the contractor promote and affiliate themselves within their own industry? Currently we are proud members of the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI), National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) and certified by landscape Ontario.
ProStone Landscaping & Contracting is a full service Landscape Construction Company. We rarely advertise other than our web page and Facebook for protfolio pictures. 80% of our work is based off referrals alone. All of the photos online are of our own projects, not images gathered from another source. We have invested in the people, equipment and vehicles to help build our brand as a professional Landscape Construction Company.
Q: How long will my project take?
A: It really depends on the scope of your project. A simple turf replacement and garden beds can generally be installed in a few days. A more complex design perhaps involving a retaining wall, paving stone or natural stone may take several weeks. As a general guide most projects are finished within 1-2 weeks. However they can stretch as long as 6-8 weeks depending on the size and complexity. You will be provided with an quote that includes a project duration estimate.
Q: How much does landscaping cost?
A: With most projects, we understand that budget is always a factor. It is very hard to put a dollar figure on projects as there are so many variables with lot size, material quantities and labour. Simple projects such as turf and garden replacements are generally a lot less expensive than larger ones. For more involved designs with stone such as paving stone, retaining wall block, flagstone and natural rock boulders, more time, labour, materials and resources are needed and this will increase the cost of your project. Further to a site visit, we will gladly provide a free estimate.
Q: When should I be contacting you for an estimate?
A: As soon as possible. Every season we try to accommodate all of our clients in a timely fashion. To be fair we will complete the projects in order of which they are booked. There are a limited number of workable months in the season so therefore the earlier a prospective client contacts us the better chance we have of getting their project completed sooner. We work on 3D Designs and quotations starting in January.
Q: What should I expect as a client?
A: ProStone Landscaping & Contracting will uphold the expectations of its clients at all times. We strive for open communication between both the client and ProStone Landscaping & Contracting to achieve the desired results the first time around. You can expect a professional and organized job site left clean and tidy after every day. All staff will be in uniform and shall present themselves in a friendly and approachable manner should you have a questions.
Q: Do you work on multiple jobs at the same time?
A: No. We are a smaller company of hardworking professionals. It doesn’t make sense to stretch our equipment and crew members between multiple sites and expect good results AND happy clients. That’s why we complete one project at a time to ensure the quality clients have come to expect from us. We will be on site every day, weather permitting until project completion.
Q: I'm worried that my utilities might get damaged and leave me with an expensive bill?
A: ProStone Landscaping & Contracting is a registered contractor with Ontario One Call. We submit all of our locate requests online. We do not start any of our projects until all relevant utilities on your property have been located.
Q: Am I in charge of picking up left over debris and construction material after the job is done? It's happened many times in the past..
A: We get asked this question almost every time.. Unfortunately some contractors don't own trash cans! You can expect ALL construction material & waste to be removed from site at the completion of every job. Your home will look clean and tidy after the project is completed.
Q: I have some ideas, but how can I express them?
A: That’s great! A simple drawing of yours on a piece of paper helps the design process a lot. The more confident you are on exactly what style of yard and layout you want the easier it is to design it and start the construction process. If you're unsure, let us help! We have plenty of experience designing projects for all different styles. We can use our 3D Landscaping & Renovations software to help you visualize your project before it's done!
Q: How can I speed up the quotation process?
A: Take notes, pictures or any other ideas you have and present them at the initial site visit. Pintrest is a great way to show off your style and preferences... Pin away!
