"Completely happy with the end result"

We are so happy that we chose Curbz for our front and backyard landscaping project. We have a small city lot and wanted something clean, minimal and modern looking. From the design and planning stage, through the execution and building, to the final result, we were so pleased with the project. The Curbz team was completely professional the whole way through, yet I also felt the personal attention of a smaller company.

"I would happily recommend Curbz"

We had a problem that was beyond our skills. I contacted Ian and discussed the situation, and he agreed that we should meet. He was on time and understood the problem. He had a solution. The job was done efficiently and on budget. I would happily recommend Curbz as a solver or landscaping problems.

"We could not have hired a better contractor"

The designs Curbz created were perfect for our property and the installation services were exceptional. A crew was at the house working on our project every day until it was 100% completed. Whether they were dry laying stone, or wet laying stone steps in cement, digging trenches for electrical, or creating beautiful arched wooden arbors and gates, they attended to every detail with expertise and efficiency — and with smiles on their faces. They were always intent on doing quality work without cutting corners.

"A pleasure to work with"

Curbz designed and installed a beautiful, functional expansion of our outdoor living space, which included a built-in bench and landscaping. They not only completed the work on time and on budget, but they did so in a courteous, meticulous manner. Real professionals that were a pleasure to work with!

"Curbz turned our dream into a reality"

Ian worked closely with us to bring forward some great creative ideas that we actually put into place. Before we made a decision, he explained the reasoning behind his suggestions and identified pros and cons of moving in either of the two directions we were trying to decide between. What we were promised is what we got in the end! We couldn't be happier and we've already referred them to others.
