"...The quality of their work is exceptional. Ralph really envisioned more than we could imagine and worked with us to ensure our budget was respected, even though we kept asking them to do more and more. We were very pleased with the end result and have no hesitations whatsoever in recommending them. Their reputation for quality precedes them so book ahead and ensure you get these guys doing your job." Mike & Kim Marinigh.
"Working with Tough Oaks Landscaping was amazing! Ralph and his team were courteous, friendly and always positive. Through the initial stages of discussing budget and ideas Ralph listened and suggested and carried out the project exactly as he said he would. At the end of everyday the yard was tidied up and the tools were taken away, the material and larger equipment was always kept contained. As a result this project ( which was my first) I have asked Ralph to quote work or the backyard. I would highly recommend Tough Oaks to anyone looking for an honest, professional and dedicated landscaping company." Shannon MacIntyre, landscaping in Barrie
"We have undertaken 2 extensive landscape projects with Ralph Young. On both occasions Ralph proved why it was worth waiting for him to be available to do the work. From initial planning, to ground preparation, to the laying of the last piece of stone or greenery, his attention to detail, his need to do it right was refreshing in today's hurry up and move on to the next job mentality. We always felt included at every phase of the projects and he truly listened to our feedback, when appropriate, he would make changes to the initial plans. An important but often overlooked consideration when hiring a contractor is how pleasant it was to have them doing work around the house. When coming home to a yard under renovation, their warmth and love of their work made you look past the dirt and see the end project. Every night the site was cleaned up, tools gathered, and hazards marked off. We would recommend Tough Oaks Landscaping for any projects you may have in mind. " Vivianne Brasch
" I would highly recommend Ralph Young of Tough Oaks Landscaping in Barrie to anyone who wants a professional job. Ralph Young came to our home and took pictures of our property, spoke with my wife and I about our ideas, and worked closely with us from start to finish with our vision in his design concepts. His work ethic and professional attitude to his job were very noticeable in his final package. His vision and ideas transformed as he worked throughout his project but for the best. I strongly believe that Mr Young provides that little extra professionalism as he is very meticulous in his job performance." Jamie Turner
Ralph ( Tough Oaks ) did a remarkable job on our front walkway. The walkway looks incredible. I have has people walk by and had only positive comments on the walkway. Ralph was very professional, gave us a couple of excellent options and the job site was always cleaned up a the end of the day. Our curb appeal is by far the best on our street. Can't wait to give Ralph his next project." Todd, landscaping in Barrie
