'We are very happy with our decision to hire Darsan to design and build the backyard of our dreams. Sandro and Darryl did everything they said they would. Three years later, they are always quick to fix things if required when contractually they don’t have to. We are 3 years into our new backyard and we have had many great times together as a family and many more to come. We're happy with our investment and would hire Darsan again for future jobs.'

‘Sandro, Darryl and rest of the team were such a pleasure to deal with. They were extremely professional, worked long hours in the extreme heat, and they cleaned up

meticulously at the end of the day. Any questions or concerns we had, were answered promptly.

We never envisioned our front yard to look so exceptional. We would highly recommend Darsan to any of our acquaintances, friends and family and know that a job would be done with great expertise and artistic vision.

 ‘As an Architect and Designer, the Darsan Company has realized most of my works, in regards to Pool-houses, Cabanas and Landscaping. Their competence and professionalism is shown in the execution of these works. Well organized and reliable, this is a Company I highly recommend at the satisfaction of all clients.’

‘I hired Sandro, Anna, & Darryl from Darsan Contracting to re-landscape in the backyard, re-level existing interlocking brick and stone work, put in a new drainage system in the backyard.

The experience was highly professional, very knowledgeable, result oriented, available to customer at all times, quality workmanship, pleasant to deal with, integrity to all.’

‘Darsan did the redesign and landscaping of my backyard. The entire yard (approx. 100 x 80) was redone with all hardscaping and trees and plants replaced. Their work also included renovating an existing swimming pool, building decorative walls, constructing a BBQ area with a 3 sided granite counter, running water and a roof, as well as building a large fire pit. I was completely satisfied with all of their work and am always complimented by family and friends on the look and functionality of the backyard. Parties with 50-75 people have been very successfully hosted in the area.

The people I dealt with at Darsan (the owners, designer and construction crew) were always available and very professional to deal with. I would not hesitate to use them again and strongly recommend Darsan to anyone looking to do landscape projects of any size.’

D. Lazzarato

‘We hired Darsan Contracting in 2007 to design our front yard and back yard landscape project. We were looking for a full service design and build landscape construction company. Our project included a front yard court yard with decorative stone walls and pillars, as well as formed concrete steps and landings that were veneered in natural flagstone.  The backyard included a swimming pool, patio areas for lounging, and a dining area with a barbeque stone surround.

Owners Sandro and Darryl were very knowledgeable, reliable and a pleasure to work with. From start to finish they took an active part in the day to day supervision and progress of our project. To this day our landscape has stood the test of time and we can still appreciate and enjoy the beautiful work that Darsan created for us. They stayed true to the design, delivered high quality workmanship and great customer service. We continue to have a working relationship with Darsan Contracting for any additional modifications we have required.’

‘Darryl and Sandro,                

I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for all your hard work. As you will recall we were in the middle of building a house when we called you. We literally started from nothing and you created something spectacular. We were so tired from building the house and dealing with everything, but you made the process easy. Both of you and your crew were always easy going and willing to adapt to any changes we requested. Our landscaping is more beautiful than David and I imagined. Thank you once again.’

Keep in touch,

‘To whom it may concern,

I have just recently built my own custom home. The design of the home including the exterior landscaping and hardscape was very challenging.

Working with Darsan was a great experience. Their quality of work is excellent and their attention to detail was great.  Sandro, Darryl and their staff are a pleasure to work with. They were extremely accommodating and went the extra mile to make sure my wife and I were happy. We would highly recommend Darsan to anyone who is looking for excellent work and great results.’

Guido Dorio

‘Dear Sandro and Darryl:

We want to thank you for the beautiful work your team did for us. As you know we were under a lot of stress and had been given astronomical quotes from the various suggestions we had received for our house. We were very trepidatious when we were told to speak with you and were not sure what to expect. Your honesty and expertise were unbelievable. After taking one look at our situation you came up with a three step solution that was not only beautiful but cost effective.

Not only was the job last minute but we had a deadline that seemed impossible to meet – but you did!!! Your creativity was evident in the terracing and solving the bridging issues (including the wildlife). We also appreciate that you found a fantastic soft landscaper who was and is creative and wonderful to have as part of the crew.

So we look forward to continuing the job this spring and would recommend you for future reference.’

Thanks again,

Gary & Tamara

‘To Whom It May Concern,

We have been asked to provide a reference for Darsan Landscaping. I can honestly say that it is a pleasure to do so.

Our experience with Darsan’s principals Darryl and Sandro, have been highly satisfactory. Over the years, my husband and I have dealt with many contractors and experienced a wide range of quality and responsiveness. Our 2006 experience with Darsan was a very positive one. We found Darryl and Sandro to be reliable, dependable as well as honest and forthright. Our every thought about the project was worked through patiently and creatively. We were completely satisfied with not only the work that was completed but also the time and effort they took to ensure that even the little details were taken care of during as well as after the project was completed. To have it also completed on time and on budget was amazing.

We have many friends who have seen the completed project and been astounded at the results. We were so thrilled with the project that we hosted a family wedding in our backyard after completion.

We would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone.’

Louise Lahey

‘Greetings Darsan!

I write to thank you all for everything you have done for us and for our garden! Throughout the process including the initial visit, the collaborative design stage and then the implementation of the plans, we knew we were in good hands and we watched out garden come to life! It could not have been a more rewarding experience. In addition to the fact that every member of your crew was personable, knowledgeable and always willing to integrate suggestions as we moved through the project – the worksite and our neighbours were treated with respect throughout the process as well.

I trust you are well in the ’08 planning season now and I wish you nothing but success as Darsan continues to grow and beautify Toronto!’

Yours truly,

Stephanie and Michael Nicholas

‘To Whom It May Concern:

It is with distinct pleasure to recommend to you Darsan Contracting Ltd., for the creation and construction of your future landscape design project.

Darsan Contracting did a tremendous job in the design of our landscape, driveway and pathway at our residence.

Darsan Contracting was professional, on time and on budget throughout the entire process and exceeded our expectations in every way. The Darsan Team is meticulous about their work and their attention to detail is outstanding. Always left the worksite neat and tidy and were absolutely wonderful to deal with from start to finish.

Their landscape design for our property was driven by imagination with the unique characteristics of our home. The subtle planting schemes and sophisticated color palate that were used are exceptional.

The end result is unique landscape design that has made our house look like a home.’
