Hi. I live in Toronto too. Wonder if company was hired to do this hardscaping, or if it was done by homeowner

Hi, was this hardscaping done by the designers or contracted out? - I'd love to find out a source for the bricks, etc. I live nearby and this place is well suited to the area.

Andrew Snow Photography added this to My Houzz: Creative Open-Concept Home in Toronto
The backyard is an urban oasis in the heart of the city. Steps from the more secluded rear deck is this outdoor seating area. Throughout the year the couple grow herbs and vegetables, and they host an annual spring flea market, a Christmas party with German mulled wine (Glühwein) and numerous bonfires and barbecues. The roof of the semienclosed workshop hangs over the space, allowing some respite from summer showers.
