Client Testimonials

We are happy to arrange a viewing of some of the landscaping projects we have constructed and our clients are happy to testify verbally if requested.

“We found Craig and the team at Smart Landscapes after speaking with two other ‘landscapers’ whose advice cost a lot and delivered little. Fairly skeptical by that time, we were impressed with Craig’s willingness to hear us out and transform our ideas into images and drawings that we recognised as being both creative and professional in their approach.

Some firms specialize in horticulture and some in design but nothing will work without a solid foundation and the understanding of what will sustain an environment taking all factors- water, light and wind into account. Our garden will stand the test of time- Craig’s engineering of paved areas, walls and integrated levels means we never worried after heavy rains or watch as plants die due to their wrong placement.

Best of all that willingness of Craig to hear you out never disappeared once the money was in the bank. He understands that the customer is the one who lives with the work after he moves on; his main concern is your satisfaction. Were there problems? Of course, things happened that were unexpected but we never felt that we would be left to sort things out ourselves; Smart Landscapes worked as our partner in the project from start to finish, and it’s a finish we greatly enjoy. Now we look forward to sharing our lovely back yard with our friends and family when we used to sit indoors – a job well done.”

Mornington Peninsula LandscapeFrom ideas to design, construction to completion we couldn’t be happier. Craig’s design not only encompassed our surrounding environment but added sophistication and character to our entrance… The Inclusion of materials with different textures, colours and natural elements as well as stunning lighting have transformed our frontage from every angle. Our ideas were readily included into the design and minor additions that were made along the way accepted without hindrance. Attention to detail was faultless.

Craig and his team were both professional and highly skilled at turning plans into life all whilst maintaining a friendly working environment. Our children were interested in watching the team busy at work and were always greeted with a friendly manner about the day’s activities.

We are so delighted with the end result; so much so that we often spend time just standing happily admiring our garden. From our family we would like to say a big thank-you to Craig and the Smart Landscapes team for creating such a beautiful, calming and wow-factor entrance to our mighty house.

We are delighted with the end result of the landscaping carried out by Craig and his team from Smart Landscapes at our house in Mount Martha.

It was a big project which presented some special difficulties in relation to the
fall of the land and drainage requirements, further complicated by adverse weather
conditions at various stages. Nevertheless, Craig kept to our agreed schedule, kept us
informed at all times and worked in well with our builder.

We found Craig to be practical and easy to get along with. His ideas and vision
from the initial design stages and suggestions throughout the project have added
real value to our home.

Mt Martha landscape Mornington PeninsulaI would like to say how delighted my wife and I are on the wonderful landscaping work you have done on our property.  Your professionalism from day one has been greatly appreciated by us. To have you take us through each step of this project, both in the initial stages and then as the work started, made it very easy for us to feel very comfortable that everything was ontrack and proceeding to plan.

To have someone say to you, that they would be there at a certain time and give
you deadlines and it to actually happen, is a credit to you.

Once again, to yourself and your team a big thank you, we are absolutely delighted
with what you have done.

Thanks so much Craig for the work you have done to create my new garden areas. I was so pleased with everything – your reliability, technical skills and knowledge, care, attention to detail, excellent spoken and email communication, problem solving, and consultation with me whenever needed. 

I am thrilled with the result. It is beautiful and has enhanced the new house enormously. Many, many thanks. I highly recommend you to anyone wanting an excellent landscaping job done.

Our backyard was a disaster and we’d lost all inspiration as to what to do. Our neighbours had some work done by Craig and his team at Smart Landscapes and watching the progress of this project we were impressed with the quality and professionalism of their work. We decided to get Craig to look at our backyard to see if he could provide us with some fresh inspiration for this space. 

He listened to what we wanted for this area and came up with several creative ideas.
From here we consulted with Craig to arrive at a design that would work best for our
family’s needs. Now we have a boardwalk leading to a fabulous deck for the adults to
enjoy whilst the children can play on the expansive lawn areas nestled amongst garden
beds containing suitable plant selections.

Craig’s professionalism, attention to detail and approachable manner was refreshingly
appreciated. We now have a garden that is enjoyable to spend time in.
