We had the pleasure of having Horvath Design Build Landscapes transform our home, turning a driveway and walkway replacement into feeling like we are living in a resort.

Matthew has an excellent spirit, which we noticed right from the start and all the way through the project. We had done some contractor shopping and when they had come to look at our home, they took the time to offer a number of ideas and options and you could see they cared about us and our home and not just getting the job. They provide professional design services and take the time to step back and have a bigger vision while still offering flexibility for what works for the client. They are great listeners, patient, thinkers, and creative in the decision process, with a vast amount of experience both in design and what is durable and cost effective. And the cost for the beautiful landscaping that the Horvath team creates is competitive with contractors that don’t have the same high level of quality and design. I highly recommend Horvath Design Build Landscape.

They did the complete back yard project including architectural planing. I had them install a patio, fire pit, replace a fence and put in plantings. What a great experience! Excellent work, amazing customer service, always on time and delivered as promised. I highly recommend this company for all your landscaping needs. They exceeded my expectations. They will definitely work with customer to get the project within the budget. I will definitely be contacting them again when I'm ready to redo the front yard.

Horvath Design and Build was in our neighbourhood and asked the right questions to further provide a quote. Matthew came over and met my wife and I personally and showed us exactly what he planned on doing. He also used technology to help us understand some of the finer details. Matthew's company was thorough, and quick! There were no surprises and we got exactly what we were looking for! We were informed every step of the way and the job foreman Dave was excellent at asking the right questions each morning. The job site was clean at the end of each day. We are extremely happy with the outcome.

Mathew and his crew completed major landscaping revamps of our backyard including stone patio,lighting pool surround, plantings, fencing and stone steps. We were so pleased with the design, professionalism of the installation and outcome that we brought them in the next year to totally redo our front entrance and yard landscaping. Again they delivered a wonderful design and installed it on time and within estimates. We would have no problem recommending them for this type of work.

The final product was better than what I had imagined! I am so happy with our backyard living space. Matthew and his crew were always thinking one step ahead and keeping us informed of any issues they saw that might deviate from the original plans. They were very accommodating with 'on-the-go' changes I had asked for when we had a change of heart from what was on the plans. Thank you Matthew for keeping the project on budget and always being available to discuss progress and changes throughout the project.

Working with Matt was great; he is professional and explains why and how his recommendations will satisfy your ideas. The design process was great, it allowed us to introduce our ideas and at all times Matt was open to listen. His communication was timely and we never felt any concerns during the process. We are more than satisfied with the results and would encourage anyone one to work with Matt.

We had an excellent experience with Matthew, and the finished product is tremendous—will continually receive strong compliments about how good the landscaping looks.

We absolutely appreciated the process of first working through and finalizing a design, which given our previous renovation experiences, is a critical foundation to a successful project.

The quote was very detailed and enabled us to adjust different components and understand how it impacts the final price. The overall pricing was competitive, and we were able to remain within budget, while still working through all the little things that arise with any major project. Throughout this project, it was always easy to communicate with Matthew, either by phone, text, or email. We have already referred Horvath Design Build to other friends and neighbours.

The curb appeal and the functionality of our property has been transformed—thank you Matthew and team!

I am pleased to write this review for Horvath Contracting. I contacted Matthew after seeing the amazing work he had done at the home of one of our neighbours, and reading very positive reviews about Horvath online. I was impressed with Matthew from the first time I contacted him. I briefly explained what I was after and he was at our home later that day to look at our front yard, and spent a good deal of time with us discussing what we would like. Soon after, he came by with a plan for the front stonework and landscaping. This was followed by three other online meetings, honing in on exactly what would be done. This entire design process was quick and simple. His quote was a very thorough line-by-line description of the work to be done and materials to be supplied. Matthew was flexible, a good listener, and obliging with items I wanted or didn’t want. His design was refreshingly different than our proposed design. This made me feel like I was getting a whole new look which better fit the style of our traditional home. I appreciated Matthew thinking ‘outside the box’ and explaining why he was making the recommendations he made. In addition to the stonework, the landscape (plantings) design was gorgeous. The plants he chose are unique (so different than what we had before), and will bring the entire front of our home to life! We got several other quotes from other contractors and were very pleased to find Horvath was competitive and very fair. When the decision was made to proceed, he and his crew (Antonio and Corey) arrived that same day and started preparing for the job. It was completed quickly and thoroughly. The crew worked hard, were professional, polite and tidy. They consulted with me several times throughout the job, asking for my opinion and ensuring that I was pleased with everything they were doing. I am very glad I chose Horvath Contracting to create our beautiful front entrance. It makes me happy to see it every time I step out my front door or drive up to my house. We are already getting compliments from family and neighbours. I would not hesitate to recommend Matthew to anyone who asks, and I feel confident that should I need to call him back for any warranty issues, he will provide that in a timely fashion. Thank you Matthew!

Dear Matthew:

It gives me great pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for you and your firm.

 

Nearing the completion of a year and half long renovation on our home has brought us into touch with many different contractors representing the various trades people required to build a custom home from start to finish.

 

I can tell you honestly, as I’m sure anyone can who has undertaken this type of major project, not all of those experiences were positive. In fact, some were terrible.

 

You and your firm, however, simply stand out.

 

Not only were you and your entire landscape team professional, reliable and well mannered in your dealings with us, you were the only company in the entire project that actually under promised and over delivered. The little finishing touches that surprised us - those little design elements and personal add-ons ~ are parts of the contract we didn’t expect, and were delighted to see as part of our final outcome.

 

We love your work.

 

My wife, Helene, and I wish you and your firm the very best in the future.

 

Regards,

Mandrake

l) Quality of work. Your experience, knowledgeable workmanship and pride in your work was outstanding!
