LOT CLEARING AND TREE AND STUMP REMOVAL
Part way through cleaning up unwanted trees and underbrush.
We will clean-up your lot or property by removing unwanted growth, scrub brush and trees, trash including tires and other unwanted items.   By removing the unwanted trees and underbrush you add tremendous value to your property. Cleared lots typically sell for 5-20% more then uncleared lots. It allows prospective buyers to walk the property rather than crawling thru brush and debris and enables them to envision the location of their new home.
RETAINING WALLS
A Retaining wall is a structure to hold back earth and soil in decorative landscaping or structural applications.  When we install these walls we insure that they are level by using our professional laser lever.  We also backfill with proper material for drainage.
SEEDING AND SOD
There is a common misconception that seeding is the best way to establish a lawn because it is much less expensive than sodding. In realty, sodding turns out to be less expensive over time once costs such as increased maintenance inputs and repair are accounted for.
INTERLOCK
Interlocking brick is a great choice and can be used for any number of landscaping projects: driveways, retaining walls, walkways and patios.  It is a very versatile choice with many different colours.  The one main advantage of interlock is the ability to re-level it.  With our harsh environment many surfaces will crack and sink, especially concrete and asphalt.  It can become very expensive to fix this problem.  With interlock you only have to remove the stones, re-level the base and lay the stones back in place.
Landscaping was the final stage of a two-year renovation to turn our summer cottage into a year-round home. Meristemdesigns provided us with the plans that would turn the mess resulting from the installation of a new septic system into a beautiful low-maintenance garden.    We needed a landscaping contractor that would bring our plan to life.Valley Landscaping & Excavating were able to do just that. Our project was a big one – retaining walls were needed to contain the new septic system. Pathways, around two sides of the house and from the driveway to a side entrance had to be installed. New gravel for the driveway was required. 
 
Over the two years of our renovations, delays by various contractors without much communication were very frustrating to us. Alex knew that and was very sensitive to the importance of keeping us informed, making sure that we knew when he was going to be on-site and keeping us up-to-date on the timing of the various stages. His expertise ensured that we chose the best material for the pathways that would properly integrate with our natural surroundings. He anticipated our desire to self install an underground sprinkler system so that could be accomplished in time for the delivery of fill. Alex made sure that our project was completed in time for a large open house we had planned and this was especially appreciated (even if the rainy weather that day was not!). The site was left clean and his employees were polite and considerate at all times.
 
It is our pleasure to recommend Valley Landscaping & Excavating for any project. The result has been amazing and we have received many compliments about our home and his work.
