I would highly recommend Chris and his hardworking, polite and responsible employees. We had not planned on having any landscaping done, however, with our neighbour's recommendation and the outcome of their substantial garden renovations, we jumped at the chance to have Black Rock Landscape Gardening improve our garden. Their task wasn't easy as we have a dog and 3 chicken who destroy most plants and grass. Chris gave the plan much thought and came up with a winning design. The plant choice, design, lighting, and irrigation were spot on. The entire company was delightful to work with and always left our garden better looking than when they arrived - very tidy. I am most grateful!
We first engaged the team at Black Rock Landscape Gardening at the end of 2016 to finalise some work in the backyard. I had a limited budget, which I explained to Chris, whereupon he and his team did everything we wanted for much less than this (close to half, in fact). More importantly, they were friendly, efficient and punctual. They took great care of our property, and left everything looking terrific.Based on this experience, when we wanted to overhaul the entire outdoor space, it was an easy choice to go to Chris again. He gave us an estimate for all the work we requested, along with a start date, and said that his team would be there at 7.30am on the first day. He wasn’t kidding – the truck pulled up at 7.25! All the team were extremely polite and courteous, and had a full understanding of what needed to be done. They had begun work within 10 minutes of arriving, and this was the pattern that continued for the duration of the job.The final result was everything we could have hoped for. Our front yard had looked “pretty good” before – now it is simply fantastic. Chris and the team did everything we asked for, and were happy to take on extra things along the way (including things that had nothing to do with landscaping, like re-hanging a Venetian blind in the house).Suffice to say, I would very happily use Chris and his team again, and would not hesitate to recommend them. The results speak for themselves, but the professional, friendly way in which they operate, along with their “can do” approach, is what really made it such a pleasure to deal with them.
We had Chris and his team do some work recently in our back yard and around the pool. We are very happy with the result, looks so much better. Chris recommended various plants etc which has taken all the worry out of it for us. The quote was done within a week of contacting him and the job was completed the very next week. His team is professional and they work hard. I would have no hesitation in recommending Black Rock Landscaping.
Recently we purchased a Bayside property with large English style garden beds overflowing with numerous trees and plants that required constant pruning, attention and time. The garden beds took up the majority of our outdoors, leaving little open space for our children to play. We engaged Chris and the team at Black Rock Landscaping to clear all the garden beds, level the land, and then re-plant with narrower garden beds, modern low-maintenance plants/trees, larger expanses of lawn, a paved pathway, screen for the outdoor shower, built in watering system, and even to create a fire pit area complete with built-in benches. While we had a clear idea of the design we wanted to achieve, Chris was able to work with us to make this vision a reality and, importantly, to add value with regards to the design and how the objective could be achieved in the most cost effective way. Throughout the process Chris was reliable - promptly returning phone calls, turning up to appointments on time, and completing the work in a timely manner. The team were a pleasure to have on-site and left the site in a clean state at the end of each day. Chris has also provided great follow up support since the work was completed. We are thrilled with our new landscaped gardens which have completely transformed the look of our home. We have great satisfaction in knowing that we have added value to our home through opening up the land to create more usable space and adding a contemporary design and planting scheme which is low maintenance! We have recommended Black Rock Landscaping to friends and would also recommend Chris and his team to other Bayside Community Hub Members.
We contracted Black Rock Landscape Gardening to transform our back yard and we couldn't be happier with the results.Chris Dodd and his team were amazing from start to finish. They were reliable, offered suggestions and alternatives to what would best suit our space and lifestyle and were able to work within our budget.
Black Rock Landscape Gardening literally came to our rescue today. We are in the process of selling our home and needed a lift for photos and sale. Chris provided us with all of what we needed and his staff went over what was expected with completing odd jobs and restoring our property! They had creative ideas and a "can do" attitude. I highly recommend them for their skill and their wonderful people skills. We are more than happy with our end result. Thank you so much!!!
