We have had Lawrence do a few jobs for us and highly recommend his professionalism and workmanship. We have been very happy with any other sub-contractors he has needed to use. It is so wonderful to see a person taking so much pride in the quality of their work.

Lawrence did an excellent job of the fence and found that the retainer wall needed replacing as well. The job was not a straight forward job and the finished result was awesome. Mervyn from Springfield, QLD.
Frequently Asked Questions

I like a variety of work in general but I like to specialise in the areas of fencing, decking, retaining walls
All of these aspects are second nature to me and with the experience I have no job is too difficult

How can a customer save money before you start the work? Please give 3 tips

What are the typical things that you need to know before you can provide a quote to a customer?
Things I would need to know before a quote would be accurate information such as the size of the job any plans they have or need, materials type and specific requirements they have for the job sometimes a budget can help because most people don't realise the cost of materials

Most common question is how much do I think it will cost, that has to be the number one question of all time, my response is always the same and it is I will get back to you as soon as I know.
