Thanks for The Wonderful Transformation!


“We approached Big Town for a complete tear down and rebuild of our backyard to make it more functional for our young family. From start to finish I was very impressed with Dominic's dedication and attention to detail for our project. This being the first major project as new homeowners, we were nervous and a bit overwhelmed to get things started; however, Dominic was incredibly patient and supportive as we embarked on this journey. We spent many hours over the phone and in person reviewing the plan and discussing options prior to starting.


Big Town started this work in September, removing all of the overgrowth in the yard, levelling the ground for the new patio, pouring concrete and installing posts for the pergola and privacy screens, and finally finishing with fresh and clean plants for to complete the look. The project was completed in November. The team was very accomodating along the way, adding several changes in flight, including addition of a sprinkler system, natural gas line for BBQ and firepit, and also electrical throughout.


Overall, I was always impressed with the teams friendliness, professionalism, attention to detail, and engagement in making sure we were satisfied with the look and finish of the yard. Santo was very approachable and kept me apprised of progress or possible barriers so I was aware of any changes to timeline. The patio work was incredibly solid - I'm amazed at the amount of gravel that was placed as the base to ensure nothing would shift after the work was completed. The team worked quickly but carefully to ensure a high quality product at the end.


Thank you again to the Big Town team for the wonderful transformation of our backyard! It is like we have added another several hundred square feet of living space to our property and we are able to entertain large groups without issue. We look forward to making many new memories in our beautiful yard for years to come!”

Went The Extra Mile


“Communication was a very big thing with us and Domenic kept us appraised all the way through. He went the extra mile by having his crew wheelbarrow all of the soil and cedar mulch to the backyard. We had just recently had our driveway, side walkway, and back patio newly finished. We needed a new fence and he recommended a great company to do it. They tore down the old fence and had the new one up in less than 3 days. They were very professional. Domenic and his gardener met with us to talk about the type of plants that would work in our backyard. They considered our colour and plant preference and combined it with plants that would bloom at different times of the year so that the garden would look good all summer long. The plants are also guaranteed for 3 years. When the landscaping was finished we asked him about a sprinkler system, and he sent someone around to give us an estimate. We won’t be putting the sprinkler system in until the spring but he quoted us a good price.
We would highly recommend Big Town Contracting Ltd. to anyone that is looking for a great landscaping company, and would use them again ourselves if necessary.

Excellent Follow-Up


“We hired Big Town initially to provide a better drainage system for water collection in our window wells and potential flooding and general landscaping. Once we met with them, we expanded our scope to include sidewalks, irrigation system, lighting, etc... the project became larger but Big Town easily accommodated our changes.


The project took longer than initially planned, mainly due to weather and our changes, however, Big Town arrived every day until the project was finished and kept open lines of communication and excellent follow-up. They were a pleasure

to work with!”

Best Landscape Design Artists


“Best landscape design artists and installers ever! We had 2 issues to solve with our new house. First, to combat a water issue in our front lawn it flooded into our driveway all the time. And second, to make the landscaping suit the house and our needs, which were that we love to sit out front and we wanted to attract hummingbirds and butterflies. What we got was a gorgeous landscape masterpiece that not only solved our water problem immediately but also made people slow down their car to stop and admire it when they drive by.

Domenic and Santo, the owners at Big Town, are just the best of the best. We interviewed 5 companies for the job and they stood out from the rest even from the first interview with their professionalism, attention to detail, and the fact that they listened to our needs and what we liked. What they provided was not a cookie cutter solution at all, but a customized solution that went beyond what we had imagined.

Wayne, their landscape designer, is an artist. He heard what we liked and what our overall goal was, and produced drawings for us that are actually hand-drawn and coloured works of art. We received two copies, thank goodness, so we could keep one pristine and frame it.

Wayne is the creator of the magic plan. Domenic is the wizard behind the curtain who puts all the pieces together so it can happen. Santo is the maestro of the orchestra, who with his extremely talented team, brings the vision to life and makes music appear each time I look at my garden.

Our front landscaping was truly transformational not just for our house but for our family. It created a space that we enjoy and use regularly. I bring out my morning tea, sit on my chair and just enjoy the view, while hummingbirds whizz by and enjoy the butterfly bushes. My husband takes his evening espresso out there and I just see him relax as he gazes out over our multi-tiered Unilock seating areas and lovely plants and trees.

How did they do it? By meticulously laying everything out and planning it all before they laid the first stone. We were living in the property while the work was going on and using the back door, so we got to see daily the step by step work by Santo and his team. My husband is a perfectionist and loves to work with his hands and he was VERY impressed with the team’s attention to detail. I will never have to worry about the Unilock platform buckling, or the stones moving, or the earth shifting, as the preparation work into making everything was done properly and leveled and the weeping tile was in properly.

Big Town worked with us on a budget and took a pause whenever we had a course correction or an adjustment due to our changes or an unforeseen issue. They worked with us every step of the way, within our budget, to take us beyond what we thought was possible.

The photos attached are from when it was first installed. I’ll add the ones from my camera later, but I am unfortunately limited to only four photos to show off our beautiful front yard.

And the crew! Not only were they amazing at their work, they also treated the project as if it was for their own home. Everything was done systematically, with tons of attention to the smallest detail. And they were extremely respectful to our family, our house, and the project. No empty water bottles or garbage left behind. They were dressed professionally, super friendly, and took a LOT of pride in the project, which we can see every time we step into our front garden.

It is now one year since our landscaping was finished by Big Town. It is even lovelier this year than last. Everything they said would happen did - the height the trees would grow, how the butterfly bushes would fill out, how the hydrangea would flower all summer and the leaves turn to a deep velvety burgundy in the fall to add colour. And we have enjoyed the recommendation to put in lighting and a professionally installed watering system very much. Everything gets backlit at night, but in a gentle, unobtrusive way. And the watering is a lifesaver as we can set it and forget it.

Each day I am in my garden created by Big Town, nestled in their lovely stone landscaping, and I am awakened to something new to see and experience. Words cannot adequately express how much we are enjoying the end result. And how much we can’t wait for them to come back in a few years to do our backyard project!

Kudos to Domenic, Santo and Wayne for orchestrating a wonderful kaleidoscope of garden love in a landscape worthy of a multi-million-dollar house. Thank you gentlemen, from the bottom of my heart.

PS, the very worst part of hiring Big Town? The fact that you don’t get to see them every day anymore when they finish the job!”

Neighbours were impressed by the finished product and the manner in which the workers attended to the project, including the timely cleanup. I would definitely recommend this company, and would use them again for a similar project.”

Ready to Tackle the Problem


“We wanted to do an interlocking front yard and back yard with a garden for planting. Big Town Contracting was more expensive compared to the 5 contractors we have spoken too. Our backyard in the middle, where the two houses meet, gets a pool of water when it rains. Big Town Contracting was the only company that was ready to tackle the problem by suggesting to install a weeping tile. On top of the weeping tile, drainage stone. They finish the job in 6.5 days. As for our garden, we wanted wood to surround the soil. Big Town Contracting suggested that wood may be cheaper but will rot in the future. This is true, since my parent's have wood for their planting and it rotted. Stone is expensive but will last forever. After the project was complete, a realtor just happen to pass by and asked whether we wanted to put our house on the market.”

That’s Quality!


“I hired Big Town to ensure my backyard and interlock would be quality so I would not have to repair it. To date all the rocks and interlock installed have not needed repairs and I am beyond 10 years. That's Quality!”

Lasting Work


“Had our front walkway/porch entry done with interlocking. From choosing the brick to planning the design Dominic Maiorano was professional interested and confident that his company would be able to satisfy our requirements....which they did. Our project was done many years ago and the walkway/porch entryway planter box has not crumbled nor has there been much shifting or sinking.”
