Dreaming of a poolside summer and cocktails on the patio is one way to keep winter’s chill at bay. Whether you have designs in mind, or you just have a desire and a dream, it’s wise to consult with seasoned professionals. And although the weather might say differently, pool parties will be here before you know it. There’s no such thing as booking too far ahead.
George Gaffiero and his crew at Imagine Landscaping have been making pool and landscaping dreams come true for nineteen years. With satisfied clients from Simcoe and Georgian Bay to Muskoka and the GTA, their portfolio showcases excellence and a genuine love of what they do.
“We’re a full-service operation with strong relationships in terms of the people we bring in for every step of the process,” says partner Cal Rose. They are award-winning, authorized Unilock contractors with a long track record of truly stunning stonescaping projects.
Whether your vision includes a brand-new pool installation with spa features, or you’re looking for natural pond and landscaping touches, all possibilities are covered from start to finish. From first consultation to the finishing touches, Imagine takes care of every aspect of design, construction, and project management.
Hardscape landscaping is a true art form, incorporating stonework, water features such as ponds and waterfalls, and ambient outdoor lighting for an overall effect that is simply incredible.
On sloping properties, retaining walls can be a superb feature – when designed and built with skill and care they are an excellent way to make walkways and floral beds pop. Having different levels around your space also adds visual impact.
“Our crew specializes in making every property we work on a unique showpiece for the owners,” says Cal proudly. “They are second to none.”
George and his team use state-of-the-art digital tools to help homeowners visualize the design. This allows attention to every detail in advance of commencement of the actual work.
“Our clients are often every creative people. They know what they want and we’re there to make it happen,” says George.
Updating a pool area that needs modern touches is an Imagine specialty. Changing the shape of the deck and updating the fixtures and features can create a whole new look for your backyard oasis without replacing the original pool.
Get started on planning now, and the moment visitors step onto the walkway next summer, they’ll feel invited into a thoughtful, well-designed space.
