Low Maintenance yards do not need to be boring

Gone are the days of boring front yards! More and more homeowners are opting for low maintenance front yards with rock or mulch as its focal point. River rock comes in a variety of colors and sizes to match any look you are going for, making it a low cost option for people who want to transform their space but do not want to commit to a large landscaping project.

What Our Clients Say

Browse our client testimonials below for some insight on how we treat our customers, and the kind of quality of work you can expect when working with us.

I could not imagine a better experience. Consistently prompt, amazing communication, impeccable work…. But most importantly their customer service was absolutely incredible.
Everyone on site was approachable, friendly and knowledgeable. They happily took a few minutes to talk about their machines with a very interested 3 year old who came to visit and waved to him from the window as they drove past.
They sourced the most beautiful trees for the yard and built a retaining wall for us. Sam openly communicated with the guys that were putting in our chain link and got everything set up for them. And he gave our neighbours daily reports on what was done/what to expect.
Everything was taken care of down to the last detail – things like sweeping our driveway and street at the end of every work day. (We don’t have any photos of the retaining wall as our neighbours are the one who get to enjoy the absolutely perfect wall.) And Sam delivered our massive pile of dirt for our soon to be garden – which has been the greatest gift to the youngest in the house. This yard was horrible when we moved in – massive ankle breaking holes dug all over, sand patches, fences that were falling down, horrible patchy lawn that stunk.
Sam and Natasha and the team have turned it into something that Nonna Guja and all her grandkids (and myself and her oldest granddaughter who live with her) will enjoy for years to come.
We can not thank them enough or recommend them enough. They have built a place where so many lasting memories will be made.

We hired Sam to redo our front and back lawns after the city did some upgrade work on our street, leaving the front 6 feet of our front lawn almost entirely gravel.
He dug up the gravel portion to replace with soil, and ensured both front and back lawns were even/weeded/seeded/fertilized and in a matter of weeks we had a beautiful lawn!
We were so happy we also hired him to dig out some overgrown hedges, replace a retaining wall, edge and mulch several garden beds, and fix up our side gravel driveway. After all of Sam’s work, we regularly have neighbours comment on how good it all looks.
We would absolutely recommend Sam to anyone looking for landscaping services, his passion for his work really shows!

To say we are happy with the work done by Sam and his crew is an understatement!

From the moment we contacted Back40 they were professional, helpful and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend using Back40.

Thank you to the whole crew from Natasha to the guys doing the work! ROCKSTARS!
