"When I bought my condo in one of the first things I had to do was to transform the harshness of the cold, bare balcony. It was like a bleak, forgotten space attached to my suite!... The Garden Connections results are awesome! Their design has expanded the feeling of spaciousness in my suite and at night the lighting has eliminated that black box void feeling next to my living room... I think it is extremely unique and cool!"

"The balcony created by Garden Connections is my favourite part of my condo home."
— DAVID H.
"We first came across Garden Connections during a visit to an Open House event at the building. Our first impression was WOW, this is really a fantastic idea!
The Garden Connections team worked with us each step of the way to create the design concept, presentation drawings, implementation of the installation work and the most important step was the long... process of approval required by our Condo Board. The Garden Connections team did heavy lifting with the Condo Board."

"Fantastic, I am very happy with the result! It looks spectacular at night."

"I moved into my new condo in early 2014 and as the cold weather cleared I started to peer outside and recognized the cold, concrete balcony wasn’t a welcoming space and didn’t fit the design or overall feel of my condo.
With some investigation, I found Fred Hann and his team at Garden Connections who showed me some fantastic balcony designs. After a detailed consultation, they provided a comprehensive design that added a whole new space to my condo.
Garden Connections worked with the Condo Board and building management to complete the project in a timely and professional manner. I have found the Garden Connections excellent to deal with; they have created a unique outdoor space for my Toronto condo that is truly spectacular."

"We had a very positive experience with Garden Connections in creating the upgrades to our three balcony terraces. The wood and stone decking look great. And at night, with the lighting, it looks fantastic."
— ROBERTA H. AND GINO S.
"The Japanese style upgrade that Garden Connections created for my balcony is quite beautiful. The simplicity of the layout and the materials are very nice, and at night it looks wonderful from the inside."

Many people might see what's on HGTV is just made-for-TV. They are right. In real life, decent professionals who respect their crafts enough to be able to help you create the living environment you would like to have are extremely hard to find. I was so fortunate to have a chance to see such a professional like Fred Hann of Garden Connections in action. I appreciate his professionalism not only in his design acumen but also his integrity in project management. I originally had a design in mind for my terrace, but after working just a bit with Fred I learnt that what I should have done was to ask to see what his vision is. As Fred is a consummate customer-oriented professional, he always wanted to defer to his client. But upon my insistence in a site meeting he quickly sketched out his geometry of the space, and seeing his creativity at work is a joy. Unfortunately due to mishaps of the renovation of the interiors of the condo unit by another contractor regrettably I could not have Fred's terrace design built. But I do like to share my experience with potential clients of Fred to say that if by any chance you might have an inkling of investing some money to create your own functional yet aesthetically pleasing outdoor refuge in which you could seek solace away from your hectic urban life do talk to Fred as you just might be able to have a little precious corner of the world that you are longing for.
