Grassroots Exteriors

Specialists in Exterior Landscaping Design


Matthew Hamill from Grassroots Exteriors was a pleasure to work with on the major landscaping project of our 2000 sqm property. He understood our vision and worked closely with us to deliver our garden plan, making recommendations for changes so we could achieve our goals within our budget. He was friendly and committed, staying on schedule and liaising with subcontractors and services as well. He built a spectacular coffee-rock retaining wall on our front boundary using the rocks from our property. Matthew's professionalism and specialist skills are of a very high standard and we would recommend him to anyone seeking to create a garden that they will love for years to come.

After a succession of landscapers said our backyard was too big or too difficult to tackle we'd all but lost hope of ever getting our garden sorted.  But Matthew took one look and said "no problem, we can do this.....we can do that....or how about this... and if we do it this way it will be a bit cheaper".   After we picked ourselves up off the ground we hired him pretty much on the spot.  It is probably an understatement to say that Matthew has a can do attitude.  "No problem" is pretty much his mantra and nothing is viewed as a problem or too difficult.  It didn't matter what we asked Matthew to do he was happy to do it, even coming up with creative solutions to fix the mess left behind by others.  Nothing was too much trouble....or even any trouble.   Matthew's design ideas and vision truly transformed our garden (and our house) into a beautiful and functional space that we enjoy every time we set foot out the back door, or arrive home from work, or just wander around the beautiful paths he has created.  Matthew brought out the best in plants that went unnoticed for years in our garden, recycled granite into beautiful dry stone walls and reorganised the space so that the double garage and shed are no longer hardly noticeable instead of being the dominant feature of the landscape.  His paving and retaining walls are perfectly level and square and the curves are beautifully executed. We've had endless comments about the paving.   Matthew approached the work in our back yard as if he was doing his own yard at home, with absolute care. It is clear he genuinely loves what he is doing and enjoys achieving a fantastic end result.  We spend more time in our garden than we ever have before.  Our friends spend more time in the garden. We're overwhelmed with compliments and positive comments from people who see it for the first time.   Every part of Matthew and Adam's (Matthew's offsider) work is to the very highest standard one could hope for.  And Matthew and Adam were an absolute pleasure to work with.  Matthew turned up when he said he would turn up, he did what he said what he was going to do each day, he is a great communicator so we knew what was going on all the time and he was easy to discuss things with, always calm and friendly. There were no surprises, his quote was accurate and we really feel we got value for money.  This is the first time we've ever felt compelled to do a testimonial for anyone who has done work for us.  We have no hesitation at all in recommending Matthew to anyone who wants to end up with a beautiful garden.

I just want to thank you for the great work you've done at my house.

I'm really happy with the finished work and love the look of the new garden. I used to avoid the garden and now am enjoying watching things grow and develop. It's definitely been money well spent and hassle free.

I very much appreciated your attention to detail and your willingness to offer ideas and talk things through with me to ensure I was happy. The rustic bridge and river bed with the under-lighting looks amazing, as does the brick border you added in the back yard. There are also the little touches like the extra sprinklers along the side for future plants. It's just great to work with someone who obviously takes pride in their work.

My friends at work have seen some pictures and all are really impressed and I've given a few your details.

I'll definitely recommend you to any people I know wanting a landscaper.

The backyard looks terrific.  We can't believe what a difference it has made not just to the backyard but to the whole feel of our house.  The boys just love it; they're really enjoying rolling around on the lawn but can still drive their cars around on the paving.

In particular, your suggestion to continue the natural stone paving around the corner was brilliant - thank goodness we asked you, we would never have thought of it.

Your pride in your work really shows, all aspects of the job were finished to perfection, from the paving to the limestone wall to the lawn.  You have treated the landscaping of our backyard as if it was your own and we really appreciate that.

Again, thanks for a terrific job.  We will definitely be recommending you to friends/family.

Matthew really understood what we wanted and was a delight to work with. He has a fantastic eye for what will look good and had some great suggestions, which made the finished product even better than we imagined. We've had so many compliments on the garden and we always recommend Grassroots Exteriors to our friends.

H Fitzhardinge - Hilton

Matthew came to us in March of this year to hear an overall plan we had which included all parts of our garden, including limestone walls, paving, laying turf and planting. Matthew refined some of our ideas and we are so glad he did, his experience and great suggestions really made a difference to the overall look and feel of the garden.

The difference is amazing and we spend so much more time outdoors and our two young boys just love it. Our friends and family comment on it now that its just getting better as it grows and develops.

We have recommended Matthew to friends and they were delighted with the result and even wrote their own testimonial.

The service is great, it's reliable and on time and the follow up visit a couple of months later gave us tips on how to make improvements. We will definatly use this service again.

Thank you

I really just wanted to say to you Well Done. The courtyard revamp is just as we imagined it ,  if not better.  We think it looks really brilliant.    And will only get better.   We will get the big pot for the centre (as you advised) in due time and the plants will grow.     So thanks for your efforts.

K Weeks - Subiaco

Thanks for doing a terrific job.  I have had lots of positive comments from friends and family.  They think it is such a huge improvement already even though the area hasn't been planted up yet.  Please feel free to add my name to your reference list and send people over for a peek.  Happy to let them know you'll do a great job.

A Rowland - Gooseberry Hill

We would highly recommend Grassroots Exteriors.  We are very impressed with the workmanship.  He took on board our ideas and gave us variations on how best to achieve what we wanted while keeping within our budget.  Matthew arrived when he said he would, worked hard and finished the job within the agreed time period.  We are very happy customers.

N & K O'Reilly - Lesmurdie

We employed Grassroots Exteriors to create a new entry path and then being pleased with the outcome, followed up with a further job requiring re-paving an area and creating a small retaining wall. We were extremely pleased with the professional approach taken, the timeliness of the work and the tidy state things were left in.  We were also most appreciative and valued the advice that Matthew provided in planning the components of the work.  We would recommend Grassroots Exteriors without hesitation.

Val O'Toole - Shenton Park

Everyone has commented on what a difference your work has made to the house, and how well the work fits in with the original house.

Thanks again and love the front, its been great.
