I engaged Dawson from Capitol Works to undertake some landscaping work at my house. This included excavation and removal of trees, a carport, a shed and large amounts of soil, concrete and grass; the building of a slightly elevated garden bed, laying of new turf and river stones. From the first quote, to completion of the job and aftercare I found Dawson to be incredibly honest, hard working and capable. I was able to trust his work and opinion completely and found both he and his lovely wife went above and beyond to get the job done. This included talking with my neighbours and having my big dog outside with them! Have already recommended Capitol Works to my family, and would definitely engage them again.

"Dawson was fantastic to work with. He was punctual, professional, friendly and helpful, and we are really happy with our new patio! Dawson came to give us a quote shortly after I called him the first time. He gave us good advice on some different options and wrote up two separate quotes for us. The quotes were emailed to me within about 48 hours. Dawson got started soon after we accepted the quotes and worked hard to get the work done quickly and thoroughly. He was on site early, happy to explain what he was doing, quick to get in touch if there were any issues and made me feel like he had everything under control. Our concrete slab looks great and I have every faith that it is rock solid. Thanks heaps Dawson! I highly recommend Dawson to anyone looking for a landscaper We are really happy with our patio and D"

"I decided not to go ahead with the work as it was a much bigger and more costly job than anticipated. Dawson / Smokey made contact and came to inspect the driveway. What a great and generous man with a kind heart. Even though I didn't o ahead with the job, I would recommend Smokey as a genuine person and someone you can trust. Thank You Smokey - you deserve to do well. "

Dawson completed two landscape jobs for me and my courtyard. It was such an amazing transformation after my dogs ruined the area. I was very impressed from the start with Dawson’s knowledge, professionalism and commitment to do the job! Dawson was very friendly, reliable, polite, courteous, hardworking, punctual and helpful. He takes a lot of pride in his work and this is evident in the finished final result and quality of my backyard which I really enjoyed. Dawson was always prompt in his service, returning my calls and keeping me updated. He was always going the extra mile that exceeded my expectations. Capitol Works ensured they provided the highest quality of work, attention to detail and took real pride in the total workmanship not only with providing a brand new amazing backyard, but designed it completely for a nice space to sit and my dogs to play and go the bathroom. I couldn’t recommend someone higher. Many thanks Dawson for all your hard work. I highly recommend Capitol Works and will be continuing to recommend your services to my family and friends.

Dawson was fantastic, polite and worked in a professional manner to get the job done quickly. From our initial quote, throughout the job to follow up after completion made us feel confident in Dawson's ability and that the job would be done to high standards. We had multiple activities required for our backyard landscaping which included, removal of extremely large concrete platforms, excavation, pool fencing, wooden planters/retainer walls, custom colourbond fencing and new lawn installed. I would recommend Dawson and Capitol Works. A timelapse video of the job can be seen here - https://youtu.be/8W92sGydRXQ
