Thanks Matthew! Your attention to our redoing of our driveway was a greatly appreciated. Your input and suggestions made things easy. And your team that came to do the job was fantastic and efficient. Now our driveway looks waaaay better than even when we bought the house. It may have been a small job, but you handled it perfectly from start to finish. More...

Matthew and the team at Horvath Design Build did a fantastic job of putting together and executing design plan that not only made the best use of our yard but gave us a wonderful, low maintenance outdoor living space. Professionally completed, on time and most importantly, on budget. Thanks Matthew. More...

We are so happy we hired Horvath Design to completely redesign both our front and back yard spaces. Matthew Horvath was referred to us by a few friends and we too had an amazing experience. Matthew really listened to our wishes for the space and created a beautiful design that transformed a previously unused area into a backyard oasis that we love! Matthew was extremely knowledgeable and professional throughout the planning and design process and we were just as impressed with his team, the choice of materials and excellent workmanship with fair, competitive pricing. Thank you Matt for helping us to love our home again! More...

After consulting with several landscaping companies for a significant landscaping project at our home, we decided to proceed with Matthew and his project team due to the professionalism and confidence that was instilled in us and in short, we were NOT disappointed. From planning, design (including collaborative software use) thru project completion, we cannot say enough about the product quality, service delivery, subject-matter expertise and overall commitment to client satisfaction. There were numerous elements to this project including coordination with third-party service providers e.g. irrigation system, custom iron railing, etc. and Matthew ensured all were coordinated as a component of overall project plan with no impact to timeline and target completion date. I simply cannot say enough about Horvath Design Build and will continue to freely recommend to others. More...

We’d seen some of Horvath’s work in the neighbourhood and had heard favourable comments. We liked the creative ideas and approach Matt suggested for our project and are really pleased with the results. The workmanship was very thorough and the team kindly added a few extras to tidy up adjacent areas too. More...

The service, quality of work, design developed for our backyard, budget, and date of completion provided by Matthew and his crew were excellent. Matthew is a very approachable person; he kept in touch with us in regards to the construction of the backyard patios and landscaping, and he was always open to suggestions. The guys who are part of his work crew are very hard working and excellent craftsmen. They are very skillful in the use of machinery and materials. We are very satisfied with the design of the backyard; it is not only attractive but also very distinctive in appearance. Given the proximity of sunlight and the overall layout of the backyard, the plants and trees were well chosen. In regards to the budget, Matthew worked with us in order to provide not just a product that is rich in appearance, but also, one that fits into our budget. And finally, the work was completed in a very efficient and timely manner. The backyard was completed in ten days. Overall, both my wife and I are very pleased that we chose Horvath Design Build Landscapes to put together a backyard that is very fine in appearance and construction. More...

Matt & team made us a new driveway, incorporating our choice of green driveway that he'd never used before. They did a great job. Matt followed up a few months later to see how the green driveway was doing, and came back to do some fine tuning. He obviously cares about customer satisfaction. Recommended. More...

Mathew was working at a neighbor and we decided to engage for a complete remodel on our front entrance to the house. He was very responsive to set up a meeting and created a design that we loved. His team executed the plans quickly, efficiently and with minimal disruption. The quality of work is supported by Mathews’ attention to detail and follow up for final adjustments. We continue to get great compliments from family, friends and neighbors and consider Mathews’ work spectacular, a great experience and investment. More...

Matt and his team did an excellent job not only on making sure the project is on time and within budget, but also transforming a previously unusable space to a backyard that we absolutely love. Matt has spent the time to understand our needs and provided design ideas to ensure the space is utilized in the best way to meet our family's needs. We are also happy that we were able to support a family business where both the father and son work together to ensure highest client satisfaction. I have recommended my friends and family to Horvath Design Build Landscapes and will do so again with most confidence. Great job!! Thank you! More...

Mathew is very easy to deal with, prompt & curtious. The quality of the work completed at our home was excellent. We are planning to have him do more work for us in the near future. Thank you Mathew.

I am pleased to write this review for Horvath Contracting. I contacted Matthew after seeing the amazing work he had done at the home of one of our neighbours, and reading very positive reviews about Horvath online. I was impressed with Matthew from the first time I contacted him. I briefly explained what I was after and he was at our home later that day to look at our front yard, and spent a good deal of time with us discussing what we would like. Soon after, he came by with a plan for the front stonework and landscaping. This was followed by three other online meetings, honing in on exactly what would be done. This entire design process was quick and simple. His quote was a very thorough line-by-line description of the work to be done and materials to be supplied. Matthew was flexible, a good listener, and obliging with items I wanted or didn’t want. His design was refreshingly different than our proposed design. This made me feel like I was getting a whole new look which better fit the style of our traditional home. I appreciated Matthew thinking ‘outside the box’ and explaining why he was making the recommendations he made. In addition to the stonework, the landscape (plantings) design was gorgeous. The plants he chose are unique (so different than what we had before), and will bring the entire front of our home to life! We got several other quotes from other contractors and were very pleased to find Horvath was competitive and very fair. When the decision was made to proceed, he and his crew (Antonio and Corey) arrived that same day and started preparing for the job. It was completed quickly and thoroughly. The crew worked hard, were professional, polite and tidy. They consulted with me several times throughout the job, asking for my opinion and ensuring that I was pleased with everything they were doing. I am very glad I chose Horvath Contracting to create our beautiful front entrance. It makes me happy to see it every time I step out my front door or drive up to my house. We are already getting compliments from family and neighbours. I would not hesitate to recommend Matthew to anyone who asks, and I feel confident that should I need to call him back for any warranty issues, he will provide that in a timely fashion. Thank you Matthew! More...

We had an excellent experience with Matthew, and the finished product is tremendous—will continually receive strong compliments about how good the landscaping looks.

We absolutely appreciated the process of first working through and finalizing a design, which given our previous renovation experiences, is a critical foundation to a successful project.

The quote was very detailed and enabled us to adjust different components and understand how it impacts the final price. The overall pricing was competitive, and we were able to remain within budget, while still working through all the little things that arise with any major project. Throughout this project, it was always easy to communicate with Matthew, either by phone, text, or email. We have already referred Horvath Design Build to other friends and neighbours.

The curb appeal and the functionality of our property has been transformed—thank you Matthew and team!

Very professional throughout the process of having our front yard landscaping done. You get to completely understand what work will be done, when and what materials will be used vs other contractors that may just give you a price and a hand drawn sketch. Our work was completed quickly, the site was kept clean and overall we are very pleased. We got exactly what we were looking for. More...

Working with Matt was great; he is professional and explains why and how his recommendations will satisfy your ideas. The design process was great, it allowed us to introduce our ideas and at all times Matt was open to listen. His communication was timely and we never felt any concerns during the process. We are more than satisfied with the results and would encourage anyone one to work with Matt. More...

The final product was better than what I had imagined! I am so happy with our backyard living space. Matthew and his crew were always thinking one step ahead and keeping us informed of any issues they saw that might deviate from the original plans. They were very accommodating with 'on-the-go' changes I had asked for when we had a change of heart from what was on the plans. Thank you Matthew for keeping the project on budget and always being available to discuss progress and changes throughout the project. More...

Mathew and his crew completed major landscaping revamps of our backyard including stone patio,lighting pool surround, plantings, fencing and stone steps. We were so pleased with the design, professionalism of the installation and outcome that we brought them in the next year to totally redo our front entrance and yard landscaping. Again they delivered a wonderful design and installed it on time and within estimates. We would have no problem recommending them for this type of work. More...

Horvath Design and Build was in our neighbourhood and asked the right questions to further provide a quote. Matthew came over and met my wife and I personally and showed us exactly what he planned on doing. He also used technology to help us understand some of the finer details. Matthew's company was thorough, and quick! There were no surprises and we got exactly what we were looking for! We were informed every step of the way and the job foreman Dave was excellent at asking the right questions each morning. The job site was clean at the end of each day. We are extremely happy with the outcome. More...

We chose Horvath Design because of the professional approach to contracting landscape renovation. We indicated our potential design, set an estimated budget and an expectation of when we would like the work to be completed. The team at Horvath met these requirements with a professionally written contract, timelines, payment expectations, educated us on change order requests in case we wanted to change the design midstream or add new work.

They built a ~500sqft patio and excavated a garden area. Also, relocated builder patio stones and made a small patio to support a shed.

2 years after the project was complete they came back and repaired some paver stones that had sunk in the patio.

Overall, we had a good experience with Horvath.

we had great experience , Excellent work, very professional and on time , most of all understood what we wanted and stayed with in budget. In addition, they were honest, trustworthy, and patient since I kept changing my design.
Mathew & team arrived every morning & stayed till the job was completed, crew were punctual and professional. They even came out on a Saturday to make sure things got done in time.



17 April 2015

We were very pleased with our new patio and the attention we received from Horvath through the entire project. During the course of the work, they had very strong work ethic: they were on time and hard-working, and they were tidy at the end of each work day. The workmanship was of high quality and they were always responsive to our inquiries. We would use them again and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for landscaping work. More...

They did the complete back yard project including architectural planing. I had them install a patio, fire pit, replace a fence and put in plantings. What a great experience! Excellent work, amazing customer service, always on time and delivered as promised. I highly recommend this company for all your landscaping needs. They exceeded my expectations. They will definitely work with customer to get the project within the budget. I will definitely be contacting them again when I'm ready to redo the front yard. More...

Horvath Design was referred to us by a friend who had utilized them in 2013.

We had received 3 estimates prior to meeting Matthew from Horvath Design. The 3 estimates were all over the map and the presentation of the plans and pricing ranged from a piece of cardboard to a hand written piece of paper.

Matthew listened to what we thought we wanted, made recommendations, then worked with us and his designer to come up with a plan that was perfect. Matthew and his designer were extremely patient as we muddled our way through the decision-making process. The complete project was itemized with pricing and drawings so there would be nothing to argue about later.

Horvath Design was NOT the least expensive estimate we received. But, we felt the level of professionalism, attention to detail, and the communication & follow-up was the deciding factor to go with this company.

The Installation crew from Horvath Design was great. Hard working, a pleasure to talk to, always cleaned up at the end of each work day, and took pride in their work.

We were extremely satisfied with Horvath design (from beginning to end) and would highly recommend this company. They provided us with a great-looking, high-quality project & we were very happy to deal with first-class professionals.

Matt and the Horvath team were very professional, very accommodating, and overall great guys, We had a small landscape job that evolved to a large one over the course to which Matt was quickly able to adapt and execute. Although Matt is able (and wanted) to give firm drawings, I am the type not to work on paper. I like to build towards the desired look. Matt was able to work with me on my non-paper method and execute my vision without delay. The Horvath team are honest, reliable and of their word. I look forward to working with them again on another project! More...

Matthew Horvath is a real artist when it comes to landscaping. He was able to come up with a innovative design for both our back and front yards. His employees were very professional and polite and the quality of the work was excellent. I would hire them again More...

We had the pleasure of having Horvath Design Build Landscapes transform our home, turning a driveway and walkway replacement into feeling like we are living in a resort.

Matthew has an excellent spirit, which we noticed right from the start and all the way through the project. We had done some contractor shopping and when they had come to look at our home, they took the time to offer a number of ideas and options and you could see they cared about us and our home and not just getting the job. They provide professional design services and take the time to step back and have a bigger vision while still offering flexibility for what works for the client. They are great listeners, patient, thinkers, and creative in the decision process, with a vast amount of experience both in design and what is durable and cost effective. And the cost for the beautiful landscaping that the Horvath team creates is competitive with contractors that don’t have the same high level of quality and design. I highly recommend Horvath Design Build Landscape.
