• John and the Rock Solid team completed a major landscaping project for me in the fall of 2015.  It involved executing a complex design for the front, sides and back of my house, landscaping and lighting the grounds, designing and building large gates at the road and rebuilding the driveway.  The landscape design had been created by a competing firm, whose quote to build it I found excessive. I am so glad this led me to working with Rock Solid instead. John’s pricing was fair and, importantly, Rock Solid's work and materials are both of very high quality. My project involved a lot of natural stone and jumbo flagstone.  John personally visited a number of quarries until he found what was truly premium product.  The design called for a lot of intricate rock work, including seamlessly carving flagstone and limestone tile into rocks, carving stone slab steps into rocks and cutting flagstone in a large scale pattern.  Rock Solid lives up to its name — the rock work was true artistry. Their woodwork was also top notch.  The limestone tile terraces are perfectly level and precisely constructed. The planting plan was followed meticulously. The crew worked hard, sometimes through harsh weather conditions, and were unfailingly pleasant.  The work site was kept tidy.  John communicated by phone and email throughout to keep me up to date or when issues arose requiring me to make a decision. He was, in short, a true professional. I recommend John and Rock Solid without reservation.  You owe it to yourself to have John quote on building your premium landscape design. I am very happy I did. Tel 416.348.7502

  • Testimonial for John Pedlar and Rock Solid Landscapes In 2013 we hired John to design and build an outdoor living space for our country home in Grey County. When we started the process, we had a budget and some design objectives – we wanted the space to complement our home, a 140 year-old barn conversion. We wanted an outdoor kitchen and dining room, living space, and wood burning fireplace. Other than that, we started with a blank slate. Over the course of three months John worked with us through several design iterations until we arrived at a plan that met all of our objectives, and our budget. John contributed a number of great suggestions to the final plan. John and his crew worked for ten weeks building the terrace, and his attention to detail, flexibility and quality standards were exceptional. By July of 2013 the project was complete, and we began to enjoy this truly remarkable space on a daily basis. Three months later we noticed a crack in the firebox and on further examination, it appeared that one of the pre-fabricated modules used to construct the fireplace had failed. John was a tremendous help in resolving this problem with the manufacturer, and we were able to negotiate a full settlement that covered the cost of replacing the defective components with a traditionally-built masonry fireplace. John found us a great stonemason to build the new fireplace and supervised every aspect of this repair, without ever asking for any additional compensation. I’ve worked with a lot of contractors, and it’s rare to find one who doesn’t think about extra charges the minute something unforeseen occurs. We could not be happier with our outdoor living space and with the support and service provided by John. We have recommended Rock Solid to a number of our friends and will continue to do so.
