We engaged Retreat & Outdoor Living - Landscaping to complete the concreting and backyard of our new build in Werribee. Alex has been fantastic throughout our process and flexible when our build was delayed by many months. He let us know that he wasn't going to cancel our job because we kept delaying. We finally got our keys the week before Christmas and our number one priority was getting our dog enclosure completed before we started work again. Alex and Irene worked tirelessly in the heat to complete the dog enclosure for us during the holiday between Christmas and New Year. Alex kept us updated frequently throughout the process and we are so blown away by the quality and attention to detail that has gone into every aspect of creating our yard from nothing. Alex and Irene are just amazing to work with and I'd certainly recommend them!

Alex was absolutely fantastic with our whole backyard landscaping work. We had a few ideas and were very unsure on how would they all tie in in our huge backyard. We met Alex and we instantly knew we were in good hands! He helped us come up with way more than what we could’ve imagined! He ended up giving us 3 separate areas in our backyard, all catered for different occasions. Alex helped us bring in a whole range of new ideas and completely understood us and our style. Alex was always punctual, excellent with communication, kept us informed on what was coming up next and continually answered our incessant queries throughout the whole time. He was very easy to work with and accommodated all changes we needed during the job. He moved around deliveries and other bits to suit our time, which was really appreciated. The quality of work cannot be faulted. Alex is meticulous and does not rush anything just to get it done. Attention to detail is taken to a different level with Alex’s work! Alex continues to provide us advice whenever we have queries even post the completion of the job. In hindsight, if we could do our backyard again, there is nothing we would change - and that says a lot! Thank you Alex & Irene for making our backyard a true retreat that we will enjoy a lot! We’re proud to have had Alex & Retreat n Outdoor Living do our backyard!

Found Retreat & Outdoor Living Landscaping through recommendation from PC Community. Alex go through the things needed to be done and suggested a few brilliant ideas and recommendations. Had concrete sleepers installed (the only person who do it in the Western surburbs - after contacting more than 5 landscapers). Was happy with the results as Alex is very meticulous about everything, always on time, and job done with ease even during chilly winter morning (6:30am). Thank you and will definitely recommend anyone looking to do their landscaping. Strongly recommend everyone to approach Alex first before you ask other landscapers 😉
