Joe Azar assisted us develop our backyard, closing in a garage with shelving, constructing plant beds with shrub planting, and creating a koi pond. We found him to be very personable, to pay careful attention to detail and ensure high quality work. He made sure he worked in with our busy lives and nothing was too much trouble for him. His charges were very reasonable —so much so that on one occasion when we discovered a rotten wood support at the front of the house while painting Joe came over immediately, fixed the problem and made no charge. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Joe for quality landscaping and light construction jobs.

Joe built our garden in 2010 over four months, and we soon realised what an incredible find he was. His calm manner, good natured approach and extraordinary attention to detail meant he was always a pleasure to deal with. I’ll always remember the man sized stones he sourced from a gully, staggered up the side of the house with, and carefully broke down and fit together into the beautifully crafted stone wall that borders our garden.

He has the unusual combination of a great sensibility, reliability and attention to detail. He also combines a good knowledge of plants with a broad range of skills from carpentry to pretty much everything involved in small scale building. He always shows up on time. He’s got great judgement, and has a lovely way of conveying that your idea is not awesome without actually saying anything, which is a great skill! He’s helped us with various things since, and so far we can’t find anything he can’t do. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough. We are big fans.

We cannot recommend Joe highly enough. He took on a job that became far more complicated than originally thought and completed it so incredibly well. Roots from previous trees had to be removed, irrigation and garden lights had to be removed and replaced and 35 mature trees planted. Joe did all this in a timeous and neat manner. Nothing was too much trouble and we were impressed by his knowledge of everything relating to the landscaping. He was an absolute pleasure to work with.
