My wife and I decided to replace our old cement driveway that had seriously degraded over the previous few years.  Our 1927 home had a number of challenges related to the driveway and garage. Typical excavation equipment used today doesn’t work very well in our situation due to a narrow driveway and low height ‘Porte Cochere’ restricting access to the backyard garage area that also needed replacement and drainage upgrades.


We obtained quotes from many companies specializing in installing interlocking brick driveways. Most companies insisted that the narrow driveway would be a challenge and cost more to remove. A first attempt at replacing the driveway ended quickly in failure and a friend then referred us to Mark Kolodinsky of Capability Brown who came to see us and immediately put our mind at ease saying that he would be able to install a new driveway quickly and at a fair price.


Mark and his team came when they promised and were very friendly and professional throughout!  The old driveway removal was done skillfully with no damage to our house or curbing which was a concern.  Capability Brown delivered the driveway according to the plan, schedule and price. The team even fixed our garage which had some structural issues that we were not aware of and even extended our patio to connect seamlessly to the new driveway.


We now have a beautiful driveway which gives our home a definite boost and more curb appeal!


We wholeheartedly recommend Capability Brown’s services!

Our clients are at the heart of what we do, and there is no greater satisfaction than knowing that they enjoy their outdoor space. Read on to see what they had to say about their experience working with Capability Brown Landscaping & Masonry right here in Victoria.


Working with Capability Brown Landscaping and Masonry,


Our project began with having Mark develop a deer fencing plan for our irregularly-shaped property with its complicated part glacial rock and part soil terrain. His design ingenuity and “can do” approach resulted in fencing that exceeded our expectations (and keeps the deer out!); Mark’s expertise is evident in the tall cedar fencing as well as the metal fencing he used in the streetscape portion. Both types required an original and innovated approach to planning and construction.




But Mark went beyond the issue of fencing: he developed an entire garden layout that optimised the possibilities of the property. This involved both the removal of diseased trees and the planting of new varieties and laying of new sod, as well as feature garden design and planting. Briefly said, he has transformed our property in a very positive way. This was a potentially difficult and involved project but Mark worked with us at every stage in a professional and straightforward manner. We recommend him most highly.
