We are dedicated landscapers with a passion for both soft and hard construction. We are well versed in a range of construction types including masonry, stone & timber retaining walls, concrete slabs (broomed, coloured or exposed), paving, pergolas & gazebos, decking, water features & ponds, concrete & plastic water tank construction, and all aspects of storm water drainage and tank connection.
At GDTrent Landscapes we like to be involved in the entire project from conception, to earthworks and construction. We own a range of earthmoving plant and vehicles such as small and large sized trucks, excavators and skid steer loaders. This gives us the capability of shaping the site prior to the more the technical or finishing aspects of construction.
The combination of earthworks and construction allows for a more cost effective approach to tendering on works as we can incorporate access and materials transfer into the construction proposal. In the practical works period it ensures the design intent is maintained throughout the project from start to finish.
With GDTrent Landscapes as the contractor, we can provide both aspects, saving you time, money and most importantly create a more homogenous result.
