Award Winning Landscaping Design & Construction

M.E. Contracting is widely recognized as one of the GTA’s premier landscaping design & construction company and we have the hardware to prove.

Woodworking Design & Construction Process

M.E. Contracting’s success is in large part a result of us insisting on excellent communication and transparency with the client.
When we work on any pool design and Landscaping construction project we employ a simple yet effective step by step process to ensure the client & M.E. Contracting team are on the same page.
Our process can be broken down to the following steps:

Consultation

Each and every prospective client will first have a “discovery” conversation with the project manager to discuss the general aspects of the project.
Once we understand the project’s general outline we will schedule an on-premise consultation.
At the time of consultation the project manager will meet with the home owners, learn about the client’s “ideal project”, their “must-have”, their ideas, needs and the budget they have.
We will take notes, pictures and measurements. We will exchange ideas then use the information collected to create an estimate to match the family’s lifestyle, needs and budget.

Design

M.E. Contracting’s project manager will use the notes, measurements and pictures he took at the initial consultation to create a perliminary design.
The design will take into consideration all aspects: structures, grading, existing trees, client’s needs, budget etc.
Once the initial design is complete, the client will be presented with the layout where they are encouraged to provide feedback so a final revision can be prepared for quoting.

Estimate

Once the initial “rough” design has been agreed upon we will again meet with the client to discuss the various elements that go into the project such as materials, colour options etc.
We will develop the estimate accordingly and schedule a meeting to present and discuss the estimate with the client.

Permits

Once the final estimate is approved we will start working on the permit.
Each city or municipality has its own requirements, bylaws etc. therefore time to receive the permit can vary greatly.

Construction

Once ready to go, M.E. Contracting will schedule the construction of the project, prepare the crews, machinery, materials etc.
We will have a foreman, a project manager and the landscaping designer all working together to stay true to the design, timeline and budget

They were able to come up with a wonderful design that enhances some unusual small pieces of land that we have in front of our house. The result was a very attractive garden with additional flourishes like trellises and large planter urns that enhanced our front entrance.

We had a small space to work with, a lot of specific objectives and changed our minds a couple of times on the ultimate plan. The team executed the plans extremely well and in a very short period of time. We would not hesitate to use ME again.

WOODWORKING FAQS

Got questions about woodworking design & construction? we invite you to call and speak to a staff member. Meanwhile, we’ve put together a few answers to some of our commonly asked questions about outdoor woodworking design and construction below.

How long will a wood pergola last?

With proper construction (We got you covered there!) and regular care and upkeep, a pergola can truly stand the test of time.
Wood pergolas will need to be stained, painted every 7-10 years- although direct and consistent sunlight may cause paint to dry and/or chip slightly faster. Many finishes come with a lifetime warranty but quality materials, like the ones M.E Contracting is committed to using, can ensure increased longevity for your pergola.

Does a pergola add value to my house resell value?

Absolutely! One often overlooked point of value with the addition of a pergola is that they can be used to create seclusion in your own space.
Have a neighbour with a less-than-luxurious backyard? You can avoid the personal eye-sore with a tastefully placed pergola. This ability to create space-defining layouts in your own backyard space is highly valuable in high-density areas. In fact, as with any upgrade to your homes’ outdoor space, adding a pergola can be a major asset to your homes’ value.
