At Shades of Green we take pride in the work we do. This reflects on our clients' persona as they see their vision come to reality. Below are some of the reviews our clients have provided via Facebook, Google Reviews, and email.

Shades of Green were so wonderful to deal with - professional and reliable. They worked so hard to transform our ugly sloping backyard space into an oasis! They were great to communicative and took any changes on board to create our dream space. Highly recommend for even the most challenging job.

My friends at Shades of Green Landscapes are hitting this detail out of the park. A very challenging site for us to build a deck with upper and lower landings, and 3 flights of stairs all on a very steep slope down to the water. The top portion of the descent was designed to be landscaped and tie into the carpentry. Umm can you say “nailed it!”

Shades of Green Landscapes is a Professional Landscape Company. The process of bringing our ideas to life was difficult and took time. Shades of Green put quality time and effort into their design work, ensuring we were satisfied from start to finish. We are extremely happy with their services and most importantly our Project! We highly recommend Shades of Green everyone looking to have Landscape work done.

Shades of Green Landscapes is amazing! We needed a rockscape to protect our house from uncontrolled traffic destroying our yard. Shades of Green came right out, were very respectful of what we wanted and kept to their budget and ours. They created a design in keeping with our lifestyle and needs and did a fantastic job! Alyssa was there for us all the way through the project. Their expertise in engineering cleared up an existing water problem that affected our house, as well as providing suggestions to make our yard work better for us. We are so grateful to Paul and Steven for their professionalism, excellent advice and superb work. I would not hesitate to call them back and certainly would offer my highest recommendation of their work to others. They also strive to achieve what their clients want. Today, it is rare to find a team like that. BRAVO to everyone at Shades of Green Landscapes! I wish you a long and prosperous future!

After Alyssa set up a nice design for our new house the work performed on our yard was excellent quality and reasonably priced. Steve and Json doing the work were very professional and worked hard. We are very satisfied and would recommend them highly.

The Shades of Green team were outstanding. We did quite a comprehensive review and quote process before choosing them and they did not disappoint. We had a sizeable project including both front and backyards and included pavers for a patio in the back, walkway and driveways framing in the front as well as the garden beds. The team was on time and on budget and made the whole project very personal to ensure that ideas and expectations were listened to and met. I would recommend them anytime!

I have so much to say about Paul, Stephen and their team. I have had the best experience working with Go Shades of Green. They were reliable, on time, creative, take pride in their work, responsive to my changes and requests, clear about pricing, informative and are hard workers. They helped out when other contractors wouldn't so that my project was finished well. We had a decently large project with lots of rocks, steps, dirt, plants, decks etc. I could envision in my mind the expansive changes I wanted to see and I was so excited that Paul took my vision, with his own flare and created it exactly how I had hoped. Our lake front home looks completely different yet exactly how it should because the design was made to look as if Mother Nature created the landscape herself. Thank you Paul and Stephen for your excellence.

Sandra O'Grady

It was such a treat to look out the window this morning and see the finished creation - a complete transformation from what it was! You have surpassed my expectations. Thank you.

Marilyn Huffman

Shades of Green did an amazing job transforming our backyard into an outdoor oasis. We have a beautiful outdoor living space which we enjoy day and night. The team is very professional and hard working and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend Shades of Green for any landscape needs.

Kim Tufts

With our ideas and an open mind to theirs, Shades of Green Landscapes completely transformed our property from an overgrown wasted space to total beauty and functional. We were very impressed with the expertise, hard work and their consciousness to the environment. My husband and I 100% recommend Shades of Green Landscapes for your project!

Shannon Smith

Thank you! We are thrilled with your landscaping concepts, delivery, clean-up, professional working and manner of doing business – well done!

Sarah Maloney

The Shades of Green Team was absolutely professional from start to finish. They were timely, creative, good-humoured, and committed to high quality work. I had complete trust in them. Our project was very complex and they came through with flying colours. A perfect result. Hard-working, customer-centred and highly responsive. I highly recommend them!

Chris Simpson

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with this family business on many occasions. Their team consists of world-class managers, artists and labourers. They create magnificent landscapes through the use of leading edge technology and high quality natural resources. Better yet, their business is built on an eco-friendly foundation, and the custom nature of their work allows for a unique work of art every time. Kingston is lucky to have Shades of Green, and if your company is ever looking to expand into the Toronto market, please let me know!!!

From the moment I met Alyssa I knew this was the team to tackle our landscaping project. We could not have found a more skilled, dedicated, and professional group of individuals to work with us in transforming our yard. They provided solid advice every step of the way and even when I made some last minute modifications they took up the challenge enthusiastically and made it work beautifully. Steven, Luke, Paul and Alyssa go above and beyond to create beautiful landscapes. They are also a lovely family and it was apparent they are proud of the work they do together. We absolutely love what they did for us and would use them again without hesitation.

Kathleen Vollebregt Curtis

We are delighted with the beautiful work done on our property by Shades of Green landscaping. Alyssa worked with us to produce a design for the patio and gardens and she incorporated our ideas into the plan, as well as adding some excellent features. Steven and the crew did a fantastic job grading the property, doing the planting and prep work, and installing the stone steps, landings, walkway and patio. They are perfectionists and did the work as if it was their own home. The results are stunning. Paul supervised and did a professional job trimming the huge old maple trees on the property. They were totally reliable in all aspects, from the timelines, work and pricing. We highly recommend this family business!

Shades of Green Landscapes is a family owned business and was referred to us by a reputable contractor. We initially met with Alyssa, the landscape designer. After a few discussions she presented us with design plan incorporating our expectations as well as her own ideas. Next step was done by Stephen and Luke who worked steadily and timely to transform our outside space. Using their experience and artistic talent they were able to complete the landscape plan. Last step was the lighting done by Paul which finished our project with a very professional look. The end result turned out far beyond our expectations. We would highly recommend this company as they were reliable, knowledgeable and just an absolute pleasure to work with.
