What our customers have said about us:


Wynand was engaged to replace the pathway and steps to the front entrance of my house.  This involved demolition and excavation work, new paving work, and the construction of a new retaining wall.  I would have to say that the job exceeded my expectations, with the high level of workmanship, the manner that the site was always left in a clean state,  and the politeness in the way Wynand and his team interacted with us.  The work was commenced and finished on time, and with the quotation costs.

I could not recommend Great Yard eScapes highly enough, and would have no hesitation in recommending them to any of my friends and relatives

I received a letterbox drop from Wynand.  Being a widow I am not able to do some of the outdoor jobs. I decided to ring Wynand for a quote.  I received prompt attention and was given a fair quote next day Wynand arrived at the stated time to prune schrubs and trees and remove garden refuge.  Work was carried out in a competant and professional manner by a plesent operator.  I will certainly call Wynand again when I need assistance in my garden.

Dear Wynand, Thank you very much for the excellent manner in which you landscaped our back garden.  It looks 100% better than what it did.  I particularly appreciated your promptness, hard work and well priced quote.  I have put in the plants now and the garden is starting to look lovely.  Thank you again for your advice and all the effort you put into completing the work on time.  Yours sincerely, 23 February 2000

Hi Wynand,  Just a quick note to say what a good job you did at our house in St Clair, several months ago.  The workmanship is first rate.  You were always on time, even to the point of coming on Sundays to work.  Angela & I are very happy with the retaining wall.  I would have no hesitation in recommending you & your work.  Good luck & Best Regards for the Future.

I've needed recently to remove some palm trees, which started to damage the driveway and clean three other palms ie remove dead leaves, flower and fruit stalks.  I'm very happy with the work of Great Yard eScapes.  The work was done efficiently, very neatly with great care not to damage the existing garden, all area were cleaned afterwards.  I will recommend this company to my friend.  I will use the company in the future to maintain my palm trees.  Thank you for the job well done.

Anna Kowakik

An excellent job.  Very Happy.  I just need to pay!


Re Great Yard eScapes:  For the last six years.  Wynand Westerink from Great Yard Escapes has worked on major landscape projects at the College.  We have always had a very respectful working relationship and have been able to leave Wynand to do what he has been contracted to do, without fear of getting an inferior job done.

All the contracts have added to over $400, 000 over the six year period.  On each Job, the site was well managed with all OH&S issues dealt with easily This was not the easiest of tasks, as the College was fully operational and there were children everywhere.  but there wasn't any incidents at all during Wynand's time working here and the site was always free from hazards.

Wynand also received the BER $200, 000 upgrade of oval, shad cloth and cricket nets. This project was done well, on time and within budget.  No long formal contract was signed between us, just the quote.  Saying that the job would be completed within budget and time.  On each of the projects, we have accepted the quotes afer checking our costs, then signing the quote as being our agreement.  Because of Wynand's honesty as a person and a business man, this was all we needed to do.  All the projects Wynand has done have been of the very best quality of workmanship and materials and there hae never been a call back on his work.

Kindest Regards

I would like to publicly acknowledge the excellent work carried out by Wynand and his crew from Great Yard Escapes.

We had 70 m2 of paving completed around our decking and pool by Wynand.  He and his crew put a lot of time and back breaking effort into ensuring the job was done to the highest possible standard.  The end result is something we area very proud of.

Wynand considered all facets of the task in a very professional manner, therefore ensuring that the end product would not only look wonderful, but would also stand up to the hazards of time.  He ensured that the paving matached our existing garden features, and blended into the environment, which greatly enhances the appearance of our yard.

Water runoff, a proper foundation, the removal of debris, and care for the apperarance of the task were all considered before, during and after the work was completed.

I have no hesitation in recommending Wynand.  He has a pleasant personality and was always eager to do whatever to ensure our complete satisfaction.

To Wynand @ greatyardescapes This is just to let you know how pleased i am with the work you did at my place, both the front and back yard.  You gave me a quote and carried out the work as you had quoted.  The work was carried out in mid May 2011.  You had hoped to have the work finished in 5 days but ran into a delay because all the work on relaying the pavers at the back and it took just on 7 days.  You stuck to your quoted price.  When you finished you cleaned everything up and made the place look like new.  I would be very happy to recommend you to anyone who needs landscaping done.

Thanks again for the work


Dear Sir,  I would like to provide you with this letter of recommendation based on the quality of work and professionalism that your company demonstated recently for work undertaken and completed at my home. 

You were able to complete the work as was agreed within the quoted costs and in a very timely and professional manner.  The site was left clean and debris free and you even went to extra effort to remove some old debris not related to your work at no charge.

The attitude and commitment of youself and your staff was nothing but exemplary, as such I am in need of your companies services once again to rectify a deteriorated retaining wall at my property in Doonside NSW as you pointed out to me last December 2010

I have passed your companies details onto family, friends and colleagues and provided them with an honest assessment of your character and work ethic. I expect that you may hear from them over the coming months. 

Look forward to meeting with you again, please call me to discuss if need be.

Kind Regards,

Paul and Karen Cassar
