Thank you DMS Landscaping for another excellent job. You did our drive way a number of years ago, and we have been very satisfied with it ever since. Now we have called on you again, and again your crew has been professional, fast and have done an excellent job. We will call upon you in the future if we have another project. Thanks for getting to us so quickly and providing us good advice and cost savings.
Our recent experience with Dave and his crew was first-rate. Always pleasant to deal with, it was obvious from the beginning they wanted the best possible result for our project. They brought experience and confidence to the challenges of the job, working with respect for the site and the budget. We love the end product and its impact on the curb appeal of our property, and would not hesitate to contract them again.
This spring we contracted DMS Landscaping and Hardscaping to install hardscaping to improve the outward appearance of our home. Dave Stern made a number of suggestions for improving the front entrance area, steps and planters, including the installation of lighting.( I wasn’t convinced that lighting was necessary but trusted Dave to make the ‘right call’- turns out it was!). Dave is an Engineer by training-a professional- and he worked with us to achieve the improvements within a reasonable budget. The work was completed very quickly and the DMS crew was great! They were very polite and attentive throughout the job to ensure that we were satisfied with the outcome. They cleaned up after the job (very important to us!). We love the ‘end result’ -enhanced and more ” integrated ” appearance to the steps and planters, new solid and safe steps, more “street appeal” and no doubt, better resale value! This is the second time we used DMS Landscaping and Hardscaping, have not considered others, and we recommend them highly.
I contacted Dave due to some grading issues resulting in water pooling in my backyard. He responded promptly and was at my place the next day. We discussed my options and he was able to get started after a few days. Dave and his crew were very professional and were able to finish the job on schedule. I’m very pleased with the end result. I’d definitely contact him again for any further landscaping requirements.
We are return customers who have had our second major project done by Dave and Carrie and their crew.. We have a great appreciation for DMS as they take great pride in their work, are able to visualize what would look best aesthetically and do a first class job that will add value to your home and provide for your enjoyment. We do not hesitate for a second to recommend DMS for your next project.

Dave and his team were very helpful from the initial planning stages through to completion of the job. Dave was patient and honest. His team was professional, tidy and finished the job on schedule. Dave took time to check back with us, returning to our house to fix a paving stone that needed repair after 10 months.
Can’t say enough about this company, did our driveway last year and was done when promised and compliments from neighbours all the time. So this year had them do a job in our backyard and once again perfect job! Respect local family owned businesses and I love to support a company like this, I don’t usually do reviews or testimonials but when ones deserved I’m more then happy to. Thank you DMS for beautifying our home.
Dave and his crew are the best in what they specialise in, and can’t be beat! His team is very hardworking and reliable. They will always go above and beyond to meet your needs and expectations. He has helped me with all my landscaping needs for the past 10 years. I would only recommend Dave because he is the best at what he does.

Dave and his crew with DMS Landscaping, Were excellent to deal with and had their job done in a timely manner. The workmanship was excellent. Highly recommended
Dave and his crew definitely are a “5 Star” company in every way. The service and workmanship is very professional and we were very happy with the end result. We had to replace the driveway, walkway, remove the lawn front and back, add top soil and then new sod. Basically we had a complete landscape renovation. The end result was wonderful and we couldn’t be happier. We would not hesitate to recommend D M S for all your landscaping needs as their work is top notch. Thank you Dave.
Gary & Diane Baronowsky
DMS landscaping just finished our backyard and front walk. Dave, Carrie and their crew are fantastic! Their work is top notch and they helped us create our backyard oasis. They finished everything in a timely manner. Bonus – they are about the nicest people you will ever meet! We are so happy we decided to work with DMS. We will definitely use them again if we need more work done.
Dave and Crew
We were very pleased with DMS Landscaping. Dave was very helpful as we were going through the selection of the color and style of the pavers. He was able to articulate all the steps of the process for us. From the driveway, walkway, pillars that have lighting and a planter box – it looks amazing! We love the results. Not only do the pavers look great, but the walkways are very level. We would recommend DMS Landscaping for your driveway, sidewalk, patio, pool deck or planters. Plus Dave and his crew always have a great smile to accompany the project!
Dave and his team
I would highly recommend DMS Landscaping for any landscaping needs. The team is a really great and complete their work in a timely manner. They will go above and beyond to make sure you are happy with the job being done.
Wow, finally a company that delivers on its promises. Great communication throughout the entire process and completed in a timely manner. Our patio space exceeded our expectations. Highly recommended!!! Thanks to Dave and his crew.
DMS Landscaping did our patio, gas fire table and retaining wall this fall.
We were extremely pleased with them and the quality of work. The complete project looks fantastic!
Dave gave us a price within our budget. They completed the project within the timeline scheduled, and did an incredible job. It’s so nice to deal with a contractor who does what they say they will do, and always with a smile. The entire crew working on our yard seemed to always enjoy what they were doing. They were very friendly and very professional. Dave would also come up with some very creative ideas on how to make the project look even better. We would definitely recommend them for all of your Landscape needs,
And in fact we already have!
Thanks Dave and crew

Dave and team
It is without hesitation that I will refer others to DMS Landscaping. Dave and his team are consummate professionals, very polite and pleasant. Dave was very accommodating – I didn’t have a lot to spend and we easily came up with a plan that was within my budget. The work turned out better than I expected – the value was definitely worth the money. I was also pleasantly surprised by how quick the project was completed. Definitely above my expectations from all perspectives!
Our family decided to have Dave and his team help us with several projects. We keep coming back to them because they are professional and the quality is second to none. They are always on time and the quality of workmanship has been fantastic. Not only this, but Dave was with us every step of the way starting from the design stages, until the end. Their experienced team helped us with a lot of great ideas we had not even thought of. I have and will continue to recommend DMS for any landscaping project you may have.
Travis and Stephanie
When we first contacted DMS, we received a prompt call back within an hour and an immediate appointment set. With the detailed plan in place the project was started within a few days and completed within a week. Dave and his team were remarkable, professional and were up for suggestions when we made a change. We are very satisfied with the quick responsiveness and the result of the work done. Everyone who came by to see our new landscape was very impressed and overwhelmed. We would recommend DMS Landscaping to all our friends and family.

My wife Jeanne and I had been looking to rework our front entrance, which included replacing a cracked sidewalk, covering the front steps with pavers and decreasing the sidewalk slope to the street. We had been looking for ideas for more than a year and had found some front entrance ideas from Palm Springs California, as well as some house entrance renovations in Saskatoon. It was not until we were visiting some friends that we found the paver stones we liked and it turned out that they had recently had their driveway and front steps upgraded with paving stones by DMS Landscaping. I phoned Dave (owner) and he said he would stop by and give us an idea of what could be done. We were pleasantly surprised how quick & efficient everything was completed. He gave us a quote along with some great ideas. Dave and or Carrie (Dave’s wife) were on site at all times and they and their crew had a work ethic that would be difficult to match. The project was completed during a particularly hot stretch of weather (27-30C) each day. The crew would start between 7:00-7:30 a.m. and wrap up around 5:00 p.m. each day. Dave and Carrie were very knowledgeable and had many ideas that they consulted us on. They always had us approve larger sections, pillars etc before they glued them down. They wanted to make sure things were placed and positioned exactly were we wanted them. Dave also took care of moving sprinkler heads and filling in with sod were needed. From start to finish, everything went very smoothly and we are exceptionally pleased with our new front entrance. It is absolutely stunning and with the accent LED lighting, that Dave suggested, we couldn’t be happier.
Thanks to Dave, Carrie and their entire crew for a great job, well done!

Dave and Crew
We were referred to DMS Landscaping by a smaller scale landscaper who felt Dave and his crew was better equipped to handle the complexities of our job. It involved significant grading issues to promote drainage and a lot of wheel barrel work had to be done due to the layout of our yard. Dave was incredibly flexible in being able to work within our time constraints and even worked through the Fathers Day weekend to complete the job. We are thrilled with the end results! DMS Landscaping has created the outdoor living space we’ve always dreamed of that provides functionality, elegance and a timeless class. It is a pleasure to work with contractors who stay within they’re quoted limit, show up on time and conduct themselves professionally every step of the way.

DMS Landscaping and Team
We had a number of issues with our existing yard infrastructure that needed to be fixed as they were causing ongoing damage to our home. Dave gave us a detailed assessment of what needed to be done to remediate the area and a quote that worked within our budget. We were approaching the end of the summer season, and so Dave and his team they were able to start the immediately.
Throughout the process, Dave and his team worked diligently to get the work done with the highest of standards. Since the work was being done around existing plants and buildings they took extra care to protect everything that was already in place. They even relocated some of our plants to preserve as much as possible. The DMS team planned, executed and completed the job in a very timely matter. The end result is a fantastic new space in our backyard that looks great, and we know was done right.
Thanks Dave and Team!
We were One of Dave and his team’s last jobs for the 2015 season was our October project. This included a new backyard patio, front driveway, re-laying an existing front patio, front sidewalk and back sidewalk. In addition they also installed new underground sprinklers in the back yard.
Despite the chilly mornings and the race against the weather, DMS Landscaping did this huge project in a week. Watching them work was a bit like watching ants work tirelessly on their house. They certainly were a team with everyone contributing.
Dave certainly has the landscaping experience and creative ideas to enhance one’s yard. He was easy to negotiate with. He installed what we asked for, plus gave us ideas for further improvement the beauty and practicality of our yard.
I saw the respectful, positive and kind leadership Dave gave to his employees. They are an extremely hard working team, and we highly recommend them for any landscaping job. We have since received many compliments from neighbor’s, friends and relatives for the work that DMS landscaping did.
Thank you Dave and team!!
Carol and Roger
We recently renovated the exterior of our 105 year old house and while researching various landscapers to ensure the complementary curb appeal, and value in the investment, we came across the on-line recommendations from the DMS website. Impressed by this we contacted Dave who was able to provide a great deal of advice and expertise that made our decision easy in terms of what options we had. The results of the work speak on their own as we have had numerous comments from passer-byes and our neighbors.
It is easy to see why DMS receives so many positive testimonials. Dave, his family and his crew take pride in their work and display a work ethic and a level of expertise and professionalism, which, unfortunately is not always guaranteed in this day & age. We have had some trades come through where you get the impression they are only after the money with little regard for quality workmanship. DMS Landscaping is not that at all.
We have no hesitation in recommending DMS to anyone, as we are confident they will feel as certain as we did in selecting a professional and quality-minded company from start to finish.
Wanda & Craig
To Dave and Team
From the onset Dave was prepared to collaborate positively with us in order to come up with the best solution for our landscaping needs, together with his keen respect regarding our landscaping budget.
The landscaping work started ahead of schedule and was executed without any interruptions other than any inclement weather.
Dave and all of his team were fastidious with their attention to detail and quality of work. There was also never an issue with changes occurring during construction together with clear communication with ourselves as to the implication of any change.
The result of the landscaping is exactly as we had imagined with the excellent paving being a standout feature of their work.
Follow up work as well guarantees of their work completed have been honored without any issues which makes DMS Landscaping an absolute pleasure to work with.
Dear Dave, Carrie and crew,
We just wanted to take the opportunity to say a warm thank you to DMS Landscaping Ltd. For all your hard work making our yard into our own outdoor paradise. Before deciding on DMS, I contacted a few other landscaping companies in Saskatoon and it was evident immediately that DMS was interested in the work as he took the time to get back to me, and answered all my questions promptly, as well he provided a quote in a very timely manner. The second thing we really noticed is when they said they are going to start the job and give you a start date and timeline they followed through. Another aspect that impressed us was the strong work ethic of Dave and the entire crew, and the pride they have in their work. DMS was great at incorporating my own landscape model that I had envisioned and designed into the overall finished product with only minor adjustments where logistically it made sense. The fireplace and patio they created for us is a masterpiece of its own and greatly adds to the aesthetics of our yard as a whole. In the end, they created a wonderful landscape for us that we hope to enjoy for many years to come. We would not hesitate to recommend DMS for any landscaping job big or small. Thank you again.
Rebecca, Dave, Loki and Thor
Our home renovation contractor recommended Dave at DMS Landscaping for the landscaping in our yard.
When we first met with Dave, he was very open minded with all of our ideas, and always available to answer any questions or concerns we had. He was always on the job site taking charge of the project. He did extras on top of what we requested and managed to still come in very close to his original quote! His crew is friendly, professional, customer oriented, hard working. And all work was finished in a timely manner; …they even came ahead of schedule. They made us feel at very comfortable and we were top priority with them, when doing our yard.
Thanks Dave, Carrie, and crew for a wonderful job at giving us a beautiful back yard, One we can enjoy for many years to come…..
We would definitely recommend DMS Landscaping to all of our Friends and Family
Shannon and Roy
We recently had DMS landscaping replace our driveway and refurbish our front step with paving stones. Within a week after contacting DMS we had received a quote. Dave has very good communication skills and we had good discussion regarding possible options. The quote Dave gave us was accurate to the cost of the finished project. The work was finished in a very timely manner, even moved ahead a week! Dave and his crew were very flexible and worked around some specifics in our time schedule. Dave was on site at all times, and the crew was very knowledgeable and hard working. After the work was done they left everything neat and tidy. The entire project went very smoothly. We were very pleased with the service and the beautiful new driveway and step!
We would highly recommend DMS landscaping.
Roger and Norma
In the fall of 2014 we had the privilege of working with DMS landscaping to complete a complicated landscaping project that included a fireplace, sloped path, patios, decorative wall, pillars, and paving stones around a raised pool. The work that Dave, Carrie and their crew did was amazing. The entire process from quotation to completion was truly stress free. Their expertise and commitment to superior customer service is evident every step of the way. The final product is beyond my expectations. They provided creative ideas and solutions for our unique issues, and incorporated extra details to make our yard even more beautiful. We love it and would highly recommend DMS landscaping for any landscape project.
Cheers to you both!
Dear Dave, Carrie, & Crew,
We want to echo the testimonials from previous clients of DMS Landscaping. We built a new home and were frustrated with living among mud and debris. We thought that we would be in this situation until next year. Dave from DMS Landscaping came highly recommended. We thought that we would meet with Dave and discuss some planning for the next year, and then meet with a couple of other landscapers to choose which company to go with. As soon as we met Dave, we knew that he was the right person for this job.
Dave has excellent communication skills, and is extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and immediately put us at ease with everything. He answered all of our questions and concerns during all stages of landscaping. Dave, Carrie, & the crew were professional, prompt, respectful, friendly, and very hard working. They did an excellent job of keeping all areas clean and tidy at the end of each workday. We were very impressed with having Dave “on site and hands on” with all of the landscaping, from the beginning stages to the completion of the project. We couldn’t believe the quality of work that was put in but also the fact that the project was completed in a short amount of time. Dave and his crew worked well together; it was like a family.
DMS Landscaping did an amazing job of making our patio, lawn, & driveway look classy & elegant! Dave & his crew were able to use bricks that we had salvaged from our previous driveway for part of a walkway; they incorporated them beautifully with the new paving stones. We have received many compliments about the work that DMS Landscaping has done. The evidence of Dave’s hard work and passion that he has put in our landscaping is definitely second to none, every time we look outside-it’s absolutely breathtaking!
Dave’s personality and service is “first class”. We would highly recommend DMS Landscaping for any landscaping projects that you want to do. Dave always reassured us with letting us know that he would “treat our home like his home” and he was true to his word. Dave made us feel like “family.” We appreciate everything that Dave, Carrie, & the crew have done to transform our new house into a “beautiful home.” We are happy to be a part of the DMS Landscaping Family!

Hi Dave and Crew
Our backyard was transformed into a beautiful, welcoming space where our family can enjoy time together or we can entertain friends easily. Dave and his staff made the transformation enjoyable and we relied on his knowledge and expertise. We thoroughly enjoyed working with DMS Landscaping, and appreciate their attention to detail, their advice, and the beautiful result that transformed our yard from “ordinary” to exceptional. We have received many compliments on our patio – everyone is absolutely surprised and amazed when they see our backyard now.
We love it!
Thank you DMS Landscaping
Linda and Henry Moulin.
Dave and Your Crew!
We echo the positive comments of You and your Crew! We would like to add how much we appreciated Dave and his Crew’s personal touch. We had been living in our partially finished ‘Bran new build Home for about 2 months amid the muck and mounds of debris that accumulated with a particularly wet, blustery June; (car stuck in the muck and tripping endlessly over various pieces of plywood and such from other contractors just to get to the front step!).
We contacted DMS Landscaping to give us a price to complete our yard. While Dave and his crew worked tirelessly to see to it that we had a patio from which to view the Fireworks on July 1st. Soon after, Dave and his crew completed our extensive driveway, and walkways, with planter box’s and front steps, this was all done in a lovely “Heritage” tumbled stone. The transformation from Nightmare to Paradise in only a few weeks was exactly what we had hoped for. Functional, beautifully designed, simple, and yet elegant and we love it!
With all the ‘trials and tribulations’ of building a new home, Dave came in and made us his top priority, followed up continuously, always kept us informed of what was going on,
Dave was our Savior to Sanity. Now the work is done, and we can finally enjoy and be very proud of our new Yard.
We highly recommend DMS Landscaping – We put his sign on our lovely new driveway to prove it!
Penny and Bernard.
We hired DMS Landscaping to complete our yard. You can’t get much better than their great quality and workmanship.

Rita and Morris S.
Late fall this year I came across DMS Landscaping, via the Internet as we were looking for someone to take on our project. We were building a home on an infill lot and we wanted a large raised interlocking brick patio and walkway. We interviewed lots of other contractor. The prices and specs we got were WAY out to lunch. We decided to look elsewhere, and that’s when we came across Dave with DMS Landscaping . He came by the same day I called, and we discussed in detail what we wanted. He came back 2 days later and gave me a quote for the raised patio and walkway and it was right in line with price and material. Dave gave me a start date and that was the day he started, impressive already. His crew was friendly, knowledgeable and hard working. Being that we were doing this late into the fall and snow was right around the corner I was unsure he would be able to complete it. Not only did he complete the raised patio but he got the walkway done as well and I can honestly say, that we are more than happy with the product we got. I would gladly recommend DMS Landscaping to anyone.
Well-done Dave and your crew.
Slade & Nicole
DMS Landscaping Ltd
We were investigating installing a paving stone landscaping project in our new backyard, and during that process we spoke to a number of companies. DMS Landscaping simply was a beacon above the rest. Dave walked us through the inspiration and design, and then took on our project through to completion in such a reassuring and professional fashion. We could not be happier with the end result. DMS Landscaping works with you, does fantastic work and they stand behind their projects.
If you want a partner in a project and not just simply a contractor; Dave is your guy. We would not hesitate to recommend DMS Landscaping to our friends and family (and in fact already have!).
Many thanks to Dave and his team.
T & C
This is the second time I’ve used DMS for my landscape needs and I couldn’t be happier! Dave was timely, honest and so easy to deal with. The pavers around my pool are beautiful, functional and will last a lifetime. I can’t say enough about his crew and the efficiency, professionalism on the job and customer service. They are true craftsmen and have perfected their art. Dave’s knowledge base about his product and ability to ‘see’ the end result and make suggestions to me was priceless. He is always easy to contact and returns questions and calls in a timely fashion.
I will continue to recommend and use DMS for landscape needs. Thank you Dave and your crew for our beautiful back yard!
Regine and Scott
Hi Dave and Carrie,
DMS Landscaping Ltd. truly are the Paving Stone Specialists. In June, Dave and his crew installed a driveway and two sidewalks for us, and we are thrilled with the fantastic results. Many of our neighbors have also commented on how beautiful our driveway is. Each one of the DMS crew was friendly, professional, and extremely hard working. It was obvious that they all take great pride in their work. From start to finish we were impressed with their attention to detail and how they consulted with us to be sure we were getting exactly what we wanted. DMS definitely is a trustworthy company with an admirable work ethic. They deliver on their promise and we highly recommend them.
Tony & Vivian
Dave and his team did an awesome job, we were very pleased with the work and the experience overall. Dave was very knowledgeable about landscaping in general and his staff was helpful and friendly. The job site was kept neat, the work done efficiently, and on time. Not to mention, they came in under budget, this is not something you see too often these days!
Thanks Dave and team at DMS for the great job, I would recommend your work to anyone.
Al and Lucy N
Hi Dave and Carrie,
When my husband and I were thinking about re-doing are driveway and our entranceway, back at the end of May 2013. We contacted DMS Landscaping, Dave put our minds at ease, with his confidence in his 28 years of experience and his staff, he helped us come up with a design scheme and color pallet that suited our lifestyle and our home, seeing that it was built in the early 80’s, Dave and his team brought new life back into our home and now it “ROCKS” the neighborhood!
His dedication to our project made us feel second to none His staff was reliable, on time and very personable! I could tell every time I looked out the window they all worked well together and when I spoke to them they couldn’t say enough good things about Dave and his Family. “A great guy and a great boss!”
Dave said “He has a great bunch of guys!”. His crew is a great team they work well together, they made a pleasant working environment at our home, they always kept our yard clean and safe because we have children and pets. It was a pleasure to have met and worked with them ALL!
Dave, Carrie and Staff “ROCK.”
Thanks All You’re Totally Awesome!
P.S. When thinking about making improvements to your home trust in DMS Landscaping, Dave is the guy who returns calls, comes back, again and again, to reassure you and he knows his craft, A highly motivated individual who takes pride in his work and his staff.
Cindy and Kelly L.
This is the second project we have hired DMS Landscaping for and again we were very pleased with the results. The staff is very professional and they did an excellent job with the design and installation of the paving stones. They kept the worksite clean and tidy and completed the project on time and within the estimate that we were provided. Overall, we were very happy with them and would not hesitate to recommend them or do business with Dave and his staff in the future.
Gayle & Bob S
I would highly recommend DMS Landscaping,
Dave’s attention to detail and his drive to make sure the project is done right is incredible. His employees were punctual, hardworking and did an outstanding job on our patio. It looks amazing and we are extremely happy with the final product. We are looking forward to many years of relaxing by the pool on our new stone patio.
We have just had DMS Landscaping do 2 patio’s and 2 walkways for us. We are absolutely thrilled with the results! We usually try and do everything ourselves, but we couldn’t have attempted anything like this… Not only did they do an amazing job but they did it on schedule, cleaned up immediately and in just a matter of days we were able to enjoy it all!
Thank You DMS! You guys were all great and we would recommend you highly to our friends and family.
Fred and Janie H
We first contacted Dave for a quote in 2012.
From the minute we met it seemed like we were old friends. When we kept adding more work to the job, Dave and the guys were more than accommodating wanting us to be happy. The hard working, dedicated crew completed the work quickly and professionally. This spring when we were in a time crunch to have some more work done they fit us in. The staff and management are awesome. Their amazing work speaks for itself.
We would definitely recommend DMS to anyone
