Experienced landscapers

Stonecraft Gardens have a small team of highly experienced and professional landscapers, led by company director Nick Packman. They specialise in garden design and build of residential projects, either entirely new landscapes or the reclaiming of old gardens. With more than 20 years experience, Nick has a solid background in the industry and exceptional knowledge of building, brickwork, stone masonry and horticulture that complements his natural eye for garden and landscape design. 

Stonecraft Gardens' team work alongside highly skilled tradesmen - plumbers, electricians, carpenters and builders. They can manage any size garden project, and undertake a variety of jobs involved in landscape work including drainage, formwork and concrete placement, retaining walls (masonry and timber), pergolas, decks, paving, brick and block laying, stone masonry, tiling, rendering, planting, water features, irrigation and lighting.

They have also worked on a number of specialised landscape projects in Sydney and New South Wales including tennis court construction, sandstone restoration, labyrinth construction, public garden spaces and unique stone masonry projects. They are fully licenced and insured.

We used Nick and his team, from Stonecraft Gardens, to build and landscape our new deck and outdoor living area.

Nick bought with him a wealth of knowledge about plants and trees that would suit our space - taking into account our budget, capacity to care for plants, privacy needs and our family. He coordinated the work to ensure that each day was clearly structured and took the time to work around our dog, our kids and a meticulous tidy up at the end of the day. We would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends, he took our vision and turned it into a reality.

We look forward to many years of enjoyment from our new transformed space.

We were delighted with the extensive, varied, and comprehensive work that Stonecraft Gardens completed so beautifully for us.

The initial communication with Nick Packman was reassuring, as he listens well, provides a lot of material to read and choose from, and grasped well the type of garden we wanted. We required a completely new garden following a renovation and the work was of the highest standard including drainage, stone paving, brick courtyard, sprinkler installation, and flower beds.

The team was always punctual, extremely hard working, with an end result of excellence. No blow-out costs and a delight to work with.

Our garden needed to be completely reconstructed following an extensive renovation.

During planning for our landscaping, Nick communicated with us clearly and effectively, making suggestions to enhance and improve our concepts. Nick kept us advised of likely costs, permitting modifications to design and materials to help us keep within our budget. Where possible, Nick drew on the existing positive features of our garden.

Nick is a skilled stonemason and does beautiful work with sandstone. He is also an expert paver and produces delightful and durable paving using comparatively inexpensive common bricks. Nick has an extensive knowledge of plants and trees and how to select the best ones to obtain an optimal result. Nick and his co-workers were reliable, punctual, and friendly. Nick maintained a safe and tidy worksite at all times.

Nick produced a great result for us on time and on budget, a result that provides lasting delight. We can recommend Stonecraft Gardens without reservation.
