We were very pleased with the landscaping project completed by Blue Circle Contracting.  The people who did the work were exceptionally professional, and their work has greatly improved and updated the exterior appearance of our home (not to mention the curb appeal!). These photos don’t do justice to the wonderful job they did. Laura and Allyn

We explored options for a stone patio for a several months before we connected with Mark Somani at Blue Circle Contractors. Mark introduced us to a range of design options, materials, and with attention to the look and feel we wanted in our backyard. We selected stone from Oaks Concrete Products. The installation had to be coordinated with other contractors (deck construction, tree removal). The project came together beautifully. Mark brought his crew in soon after the site had been cleared of old structures. Installers were excellent on site. They built a wall, around the perimeter and filled in with sand, packed hard and smooth, upon which the stone was laid with precision. The quality of the workmanship was gratifying to watch, and it was clear that they take great pride in it. We are very pleased with the result and do not hesitate to recommend them to our friends. Doris and Alan

Mark, we just want to thank you and your crew for the excellent work you did in installing our new stone patio and walk. We very much appreciated your advice on design and materials. The workmanship is outstanding. It is evident that your team takes a lot of pride in the quality of the work they do. The stone walk & patio certainly have enhanced the appearance of our house. We look forward to many years of enjoyment from them. Again, many thanks. Bill and Rita

Blue Circle Contracting Inc. offered quality products, competitive pricing and top of the line workmanship. In a time when it is accepted that a trade generally over promises and under delivers, it was a wonderful experience to have a job begin on the day scheduled and be completed in a week’s time. Mike and Angela W from Guildwood Village

Your crew was on time, personable and cleaned up each day there were there. We heard horror stories about contractors but you totally restored our faith in good workmanship, dependability and reliability. Arlene from Toronto

Mark was available anytime we needed him, to help tailor our project, ready with some creative input and was ready and able to meet our budget. All through our landscape project, Mark was always just a phone call away, and onsite frequently ready to address any last minute changes or client concerns. Richard N from Davisville Village

Backyard landscaping We had Blue Circle back to re-landscape our backyard after they had done a great job on our waterproofing. I was particularly impressed with 2 things – they were fast and paid attention to detail. This was a big project: removal of the old, rebuilding a retaining wall, sitting wall, natural stone patio, hard and soft scape and re-grading. The whole crew was in and out in a week – no fooling around. Also the attention to detail: I watched one of the guys laying a stone 5 times before he was satisfied (it looked fine to me after the first time). At the end it was completely done and looked great – well worth the cost. Grant from Etobicoke

Front porch stone steps and landscaping Mark and his team provided great service despite short notice. They completed the project on time and cost without issues. I would highly recommend Blue Circle for any landscaping or construction projects and I intend to use their services again. Jason H from Danforth

Landscaping of entire property after major home renovation It’s a rare occasion for me to go out of my way to write, let alone ask a service person how best I can tell others about their company after having services rendered. My experience with Mark and Blue Circle Contracting would be one of those times. We hired them to complete a full landscaping of our home after our renos. They were not the cheapest, nor the most expensive, and I felt confidence in that as I have experienced, like most, that you get what you pay for. To put it simply, my experience and the quality of the job was excellent. They were on time, on budget and very pleasant to deal with. Mark came by everyday to review the work done, to answer questions and discuss changes if required. Our landscaping estimated to last 7 days however they did it in 5 days. To this day, we still receive compliments from people who stop by to ask who did our work, and I still happily offer myself as a reference to Mark. Brent from the Beach

Restoration of front entrance (staircase/retaining wall) Good work is a given but working around the clients schedule and delivering exactly what and when you promise (and then some) is what makes a company one that I would highly recommend. They came to quote right away and began and completed the work right on schedule. The work itself was superb and we know the job was done right. They spotted other issues on the side of our house and gave us options on how to deal with them based on our budget and needs. I would highly recommend them. The price was fair and as important we know the work is going to outlast us in this house. Rob from the Beach

Complete restoration of multi-unit home in Parkdale Blue Circle’s work is high quality. The estimate is detailed, the job comes in on budget, it finishes on time, and the site is clean and tidy when they are done. It is a friendly, professional company to work with. Blue Circle will not be the lowest bidder on a project, but the workmanship is worth every penny! Mary from Parkdale

From a contractors point of view This review is based on an ongoing sub-trade relationship that I have had with Blue Circle Contracting for many years. As a sub-trade, we on occasion see the good and the bad of the benefits of hiring a sub contractor to oversee home renovations. For close to ten years I have had the privilege of working for Blue Circle Contracting on various projects throughout the city. I am always impressed with the quality of management, preparedness, professionalism and quality workmanship that Blue Circle has to offer. Mark’s enthusiasm, knowledge and honesty are rare in today’s industry. I would highly recommend Blue Circle Contracting to any homeowner looking for a trustworthy, honest and professional contractor. Bill from Victorian Restoration Co.

Brick restoration and front yard landscape makeover Mark provides the best follow-up I have experienced with a contractor. He rolled with our decisions, came up with reasonable proactive solutions, prevented us from making mistakes and ALWAYS responded to phone calls, emails, and texts promptly. You can well imagine the difference that makes. His teams were fast, clean, courteous, and professional. We’d have them back without hesitation. Rob from Lytton Park

Front yard landscaping We first contacted Blue Circle Contracting in April of 2012. Asking around in our community, this company was one that had done many landscaping projects in our neighbourhood, and came very highly recommended. Mark was determined to stay within our budget and got back to us within a week with a detailed quote. A few points had to be altered or clarified and Mark was very receptive to the changes we wanted made. Once we agreed to the proposal, we were given a timeline for the work to be completed. The different teams doing the work were all very professional, quick, efficient and knowledgeable. They were also considerate of our neighbours and a clean-up was done every time before they left for the day. We are so happy with the total work done on our front yard. It looks gorgeous and it feels good to see heads turn, people walk by and come back to take a closer look! We have no doubt that we will be enjoying our landscaping for seasons and years to come! We would definitely use Blue Circle Contracting again and would highly recommend them. Thank you Mark! Julie M from Toronto

Back yard with pool and gardens I loved what was done in my backyard. The job was a big undertaking but it was executed beyond my expectations. All I’ve had are compliments on how it looks. The crews cleaned up after themselves and were quick and efficient. I would strongly recommend them given they managed my expectations and consulted me throughout the process to my satisfaction. Bess T from North York

Complete landscape transformation Blue Circle did a great job transforming our property with installation of a new parking pad and front walkway. The crew was timely and very clean. Mark and his team provided recommendations to our project that worked within our budget and reflected the character of our home. Brent C from Toronto

Waterproofing, paving and landscaping makeover This is third project that Mark has completed for us. As always we were pleased with his professionalism and the top quality of the finished product. The work was completed quickly and our neighbours were all impressed with the amazing results that transformed our house. Jonah, Yonge/Sheppard

Back patio transformation Blue Circle Contracting Inc. recently completed a patio for us in our yard. The work was executed in a professional, timely manner. In addition the work site was left in pristine condition ready for us to enjoy our new patio. Mark Somani, the contractor returned phone calls and emails, and provided us with information that guided us in our decision -making regarding the patio design. A further testimonial to their work ethic was the number of neighbours who had previously used their services with excellent results. I have recommended them to our son for a future project. It was a pleasure dealing with Blue Circle Contracting Inc. Yolanda from Hunt Club

Redesign of front porch and gardens We have had Mark and his wonderful crew’s expertise and creativeness twice in the past 6 years. Both jobs were beautifully done and finished on time. The crew was creative with the design and worked tirelessly to complete the job as planned. Mark planned for and prepared a proposal several months in advance then started the job when promised in the spring. We would feel very confident in recommending this level of quality work done by Blue Circle to our friends. George from Don Mills

New patio and garden work Over the past 8 years we have relied on Mark’s expertise; the latest request being interlocking stone work, railings and planting of two gardens. Mark was always available when needed. The crew who worked on our property was very hard-working and always kept the job site clean. We found that with Blue Circle Contracting, one of their goals is to make the customer happy. Dennis and Sheila C from North York

Redesign of the backyard It was a pleasure working with Mark throughout the entire process. He was always thoughtful and courteous and his suggestions regarding design and colour were extremely helpful. He was always prompt in responding to e-mails and phone calls and the entire project was finished two days earlier than expected. His work crew was phenomenal! They are highly skilled and the quality of their workmanship was excellent. They arrived on time every day and seemed to work non-stop. They were always polite and considerate of the neighbours. They were meticulous in paying attention to small details and made sure the work area was left clean and tidy at the end of each day. I am very happy with the improvement to my property and would recommend Mark and his crew without hesitation. Lynn from Hunt Club

Rebuilt our natural stone front porch and planters During our initial meeting with Mark, we were very impressed with his knowledge and helpful suggestions for our project as well as the examples of his work. Within a few days, he provided a detailed quote, and worked to schedule the project in a short timeframe. The job started and finished on time. While the work was being done, the site was tidied up every night. Most importantly, the workmanship was excellent. The porch and planters were rebuilt with precision and are solid. They have updated the look of our house, and we are extremely pleased. Jane from Bayview Village

Natural Stonework I have been referring my clients to Blue Circle for natural stone for over ten years. Mark and his crew do an exceptional job, hands down some of the best natural stone work in the city. Everyone who has dealt with them are very happy with the price, service and workmanship. I will continue to refer Blue Circle for years to come. Jim from Ultra Scape

Backyard landscape makeover with custom wood structure Blue Circle took the pain out of a challenging task. Their work crews are a pleasure to be around. They start and finish on time. Mark uses his experience to guide the client through the choices their design involves. He gives good advice and he hires good people. His carpenter built a gorgeous cedar structure that brought this vertical element into play; we can view the wood from inside and enjoy it all year round. Our stone patios transformed the space beside and behind our house. The steps and retaining walls tie the levels together. We did not hesitate to call Mark last week about foundation work for the other side of our house. John from Scarborough

Front Porch and walkway rebuild Mark Somani of Blue Circle Contracting had spoken to us about a new porch/walkway several times over the last couple of years. Throughout that time, Mark was patient and professional, offering suggestions and answering questions about designs that we felt might work. Once we decided to move forward, Mark and his crew were great. They were on time and on budget with no surprises. Even after all our planning, we changed our design on the fly and Mark was able to accommodate us without any issues. We would recommend Mark and his company without hesitation. Blue Circle was a real pleasure to work with. I wish we had used them sooner! Mark and his crew are professional, punctual, precise, and polite! They give 110% and do the job right! Lesley G from Davisville Village

Backyard landscaping Mark was great to deal with — very personable and responsive. The resulting work was quickly done, with professional results. I would not hesitate to recommend (and in fact, have!) Blue Circle to anyone looking for both integrity in the transaction and quality in the result. D. Appen from Upper Beach

Concrete work on garage floor Mark Somani is a true professional and his attentiveness to the project from start to finish was nothing short of impressive. The job was done on time, on budget and at the quality level we expected. I would certainly recommend Blue Circle for anyone looking for a good contractor. I also plan to use Blue Circle in the future for projects we have planned. Thanks Blue Circle! Clark from Guildwood Village

Rebuilt chimney and installed new liner They were very easy to deal with, they took the time to understand what we wanted done and quickly got us a quote to do the work. Their crew did a great job and cleaned up very well after they finished. We plan to have them back in the spring to do another project for us. Clark from Upper Beach

Home maintenance makeover Mark Somani of Blue Circle Contracting is a pleasure to work with. We initially hired him to rebuild our stone front steps as well as design and install a custom wrought iron railing. We were thrilled with the results. Consequently we hired him and his trades to: design and install new steps and railing on our deck; tuck point our bricks, including chimney; and to waterproof our basement. Mark and his various crews are proud of their work, work hard, enjoy their work and at the end of the day, clean up. In fact, my neighbour was so pleased with the work we had done, that they hired Mark and Blue Circle Contracting. Elspeth in Leaside

Brick restoration and landscape makeover We really love working with Mark Somani at Blue Circle Contracting. We’ve hired him for 4 different projects and have been very happy with the results every time. Mark cares very much about his clients and the work he provides, and he stands behind his work. His crews are hard-working and loyal – always prompt, clean and very personable. We’ve recommended Mark to a number of neighbours with absolute confidence that they, too, will be satisfied with the outcome. Two big thumbs up! Vickie from Riverdale

Interlocking Patio Work We have used Blue Circle for several interlocking projects over the past 10 years. The design recommendations exceeded our expectations, the work was done promptly when started, and the site was left clean every day. Even small projects received great attention to the details and we are very pleased with the work Mark and the team did for us. Bob D from Don Mills

Stone terraces and irrigation Blue Circle Contracting was instrumental in making our backyard an oasis. We were given a near clean- slate as a large construction project next door tore out our back and front yards. Mark Somani and his team were able to walk us through the process, and designed and executed a breathtaking spa-like feel to our new patios. They were on schedule and on budget. Joe in North Toronto
