HOMESTARSVERIFIED

We recently moved into our first house and loved everything about it-- except the backyard. It had been neglected for years and was just a mess. We called Jay and he quickly came out to take a look, walked us through our options and provided a thorough quote. Jay is personable, professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. 

Despite the poor start to the season (ice storm!) his team managed to complete a full backyard reno--large deck, fence, and sod/landscaping-- within the very specific time frame we were working with. 

A big shout-out to Zach who did an amazing job creating our dream backyard! Neighbours have already been complimenting us on the craftsmanship of our new fence and deck. The quality of everything he did far surpassed our expectations. He also took the time to walk us through many aspects of the project, gave great advice and gave us an opportunity to change things/make decisions along the way. His attention to detail really stood out. 

THANK YOU for our new backyard! I highly recommend Green Side Up for any fence, deck, or yard work you need!!

We have a terrific new deck and shed to enjoy care of Green Side Up! Jay was really easy to deal with and his quoting process provided the advice we needed to get the best result. His carpenter, CJ, took a lot of care and detail and this resulted in a high quality job. There were several decisions that needed to be made along the way and they were open and understanding to suit our needs. I would highly recommend them for any type of deck/shed work and they will be our go to for other outdoor projects.

Jay and CJ completed exceeded our expectations. They were thorough, meticulous and great at communication throughout the project. CJ is a true craftsman and not only did he make a beautiful deck for us, he did it during one of the hottest weeks on record. I'd highly recommend the team at GreensideUp.

I found this company via Homestar. Positive reviews and rates were worth a try. 
I got the quote from him, and his price was very reasonable. I also had very aggressive schedule demand, but he was also able to accommodate it. 
Throughout the project, he was very responsive to my questions and requests. This really helped since we discovered various issues after the project started, including leaking drain from the upstairs. 
He could quickly diagnose the problem, and fix this leaking issue related to the project) with a very reasonable cost which I really appreciate. 
I'm happy with all the works done by this team has put in. I highly recommend Green Side Up Contracting and I also wish to work with them for my future projects.

I would like to say thanks to Green Side Up Contracting. My bathroom originally was falling apart. The base had been cracked and the water pressure was terrible. They changed all this. He added a structure to the base so it will never Fitters crack again. His experience in plumbing as changed the water pressure all while installing a new shower. I am so pleased with the service of Green Side Up Contracting that I will definitely use them again.

We engaged with Green Side Up for a major back yard renovation. I had previously worked with Jay on a smaller balcony project and loved the engagement. That positive experience plus the number of positive reviews on this site, along with some of the other projects we saw they had completed gave us the confidence to choose Green Side Up.

Our back yard renovation was no small task. Here's a list of what we had done with Green Side Up: 
- Removal of existing wood retaining wall and replaced with armour stone 
- Removal of existing interlock and replacement with new beautiful interlock (excavation and re-grading of the entire back yard) 
- New fence and gates 
- New custom deck around our hot tub 
- New grill gazebo over top of our BBQ

The carpentry work by CJ was amazing - his attention to detail is unmatched

The overall experience was great - any final tweaks and adjustments were completed promptly. I would recommend Green Side Up on anyones back yard renovation

Thought I would include a link to a video that was done to show the finished product:

First let me start off by saying this isn't my first rodeo...I've been buying and flipping houses for over a decade in the GTA. I have met my share of contractors good and bad and I can happily say I found a good one in Jay and Green Side Up Contracting. Jay and his team were prompt, polite and professional. They completed a very large stone driveway as well as an overhaul of my existing gardens. The work was completed flawlessly.

Jay and Grant were punctual with their phone calls and visits and kept me up to date with every step of the project. They were very concerned with my satisfaction to ensure that I was 100% satisfied. Post installers installed the posts and fence installer installed the fence, which is something I have learned is necessary. I have dealt with multiple trades building my house and specific trades need to do their specific jobs - if you have a trade saying they can do multiple things, find someone else. Greenside up had the right people do this job. I would recommend Greenside up for a fence job.

Jay at Green Side Up made this a delight. While currently living in England, a failing retaining wall and fence could have been a nightmare back home. Jay and his team made it as painless as can be - facetime video to discuss the work on site, as well as regular photos and videos to show progress - if you are away or a very busy individual, this type of service is so critical. To top this off the work itself was very well done and puts the original builder to shame. I had the fortune to be back just as it was finished and saw the quality first hand as well!

Well done to the Green Side Up team! Heartily recommended.

Green Side Up currently did a superb activity of tearing down our antique fence and replacing it with a brand new one. Their pricing become honest and the men who did the paintings have been professional, did a brilliant job on the development of the brand new fence and wiped clean up any particles after the work became accomplished. We were thrilled with their paintings and would not hesitate to suggest them!
