Castle Hill

When my husband and I were in search of the right landscape company to interpret the vision we had for our very special memorial garden, we both know that there is only one person who could tackle such a large and complicated project. It was Dean Herald and his company Rolling Stone Landscapes, without a doubt it was the right decision.

The project took 10 months to complete and we were involved every step of the way. His team were professional and highly skilled.

The memorial garden we have today is exactly the interpretation of what we envisaged, it's perfect and reflects the peace and calm we desired with its intricate water features.

Dean is a pleasure to work with and his pride in his workmanship and professionalism and unique creativity is very evident in our garden.

Thank you so much!

Dean Herald has successfully interpreted and executed our design brief for what is a tight backyard space in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.

His willingness to work with our ideas was devoid of any “attitude” many professionals in the industry seem to frequently exhibit.

To this end, Dean’s realisation of our space, has made it one we enjoy enormously, since its completion in 2010. We marvel every day at the transformative nature of his work and consequently enjoy an outdoor lifestyle which the garden had not previously afforded.

His professionalism, capability, attention to detail and amenable nature, which is shared throughout his equally competent team, are certainly the key points to recommending Rolling Stone Landscapes to others. Dean’s ability to stay reasonably within budget, was instrumental to bringing this entire project to fruition and on time for completion.

Dear Dean and Staff,

I honestly sit here wondering where to begin to thank you and your fantastic crew!

We could truly not be happier with every entire aspect of our dealings with you from the very beginning to the very end, although there has not really been an end as we continue to see you and your staff here ensuring all is going well. Our appreciation goes beyond your magnificent design, the stunning outcome and the overall commitment, dedication and professionalism we were so fortunate to experience.

The entire Rolling Stone’s staff from Sarah in the office to Luke and every member who were here – (which on most days were at least a dozen) displayed enormous attention to detail, and a willingness to ensure all of our requirements and expectations were not only met but surpassed.

As cliché as this may sound, both Darren and I have used the line “above and beyond the call of duty” countless times whilst being associated with your company and I feel compelled to mention some of the “stand out moments” which occurred throughout your time here.

On so many occasions without being asked the crew downed tools momentarily to be of assistance to us in any way they could, from helping me inside with the weekly shopping, to giving Darren a hand moving heavy furniture, and more often than not this occurred at the end of a very hard day when it was time for them to go home!

Our good neighbours Tony and Valerie Madigan will never forget the Rolling Stone’s boys for saving their property from an out of control fire. It was lunch time and the boys noticed smoke coming from their property, without hesitation they dropped their lunch and ran – all twelve of them! They called the fire brigade but had successfully contained it themselves by the time they had arrived!

I recall a telephone conversation with you at around 9pm one rainy Friday evening when you detected a little uncertainty in my voice in relation to a paving design you were doing. At 9.15pm we were to receive a knock at the door from yourself – torch in hand – design explained – our minds put to rest!

Offers to deliver my children to school or the use of your vehicles on the couple of occasions I had a flat tyre or flat battery – and I could seriously go on with so many more examples of kindness and compassion in situations that presented themselves whilst you were here.

Overall Dean, we are completely impressed with your capabilities, your honesty, integrity and above all your desire to please. We thank you sincerely and owe our happiness of now living in the most beautiful surroundings to you. We are very excited to embark on our future projects with Rolling Stone Landscapes.

Yours truly,

Lisa & Darren

From our initial consultation through to the planning and execution of the work, Dean and his team provided a supportive, creative and high quality build. The excellent design process and high standard shown in the completion of all work undertaken by Rolling Stone Landscapes made all the difference. The working experience of having a team that are easy to communicate with and whom deal with all issues and modifications professionally, provides peace of mind and confidence in the projects we have embarked on. The professionalism of the workers on site consistently exceeded our expectations.

I recommend Dean and the team unequivocally and having already used them on a number of projects since our first collaboration, will continue to use them in the future.

Our Story started around 2 and a half years ago when we met with Dean on our land in Dural . We had an idea of what we wanted to create but Dean gave us a Vision . We started the design process which was very exciting and priced up the job .There was never any doubt we wanted Rolling Stones to build our Landscape design and never a day goes by that we are so glad we made that decision.

Dean and his team are the most professional and great bunch of guys nothing was ever a problem even when it didn’t stop raining for 4 Months …. They are more than happy to help out if still needed.

We are so lucky to get to look at the Beautiful gardens and design Dean created and never could of achieved that without Dean and his team .

We have no hesitation to recommend Rolling Stones Landscapes’ and we hope to use Deans services again in the future .

We are Thank full for the amazing gardens they created and we get to Enjoy

From our first encounter with Dean, we were inspired not only by his spectacular garden designs, but by his passion and energy for his craft and his “can-do” attitude.

Our dream for the landscaping component of the home we were building was to achieve an integration between indoors and outdoors and attain a feeling of natural tranquillity which would play a vital role in the overall ambience of our home. Dean’s innovative and creative design solutions and attention to detail far exceeded everything we hoped for.

The entire team from Rolling Stone Landscapes were enthusiastic, professional and totally committed to achieving the unique and outstanding results that continue to delight us every day. Dean’s vision, combined with excellent communication skills, accessibility and a hands-on work ethic, ensured our experience was exciting, rewarding and an absolute pleasure from beginning to end.

We look forward to finding another opportunity to work with Dean and his team in the future.

After making the decision to build our dream home in 2008 it was an emotional time for myself and my family.

Dean Herald from Rolling Stone Landscapes had obviously been through it before many times.

One of the many qualities in Dean was his understanding of exactly that….that, to the client, this was their dream not just another build.

Dean and his design team were consistent from concept through to finish in their diligence and “nothing is too hard attitude”.

Rolling Stone Personnel were professional, courteous and worked in with the builder very well.

The outcome was an award winning landscape project!

After going through a major event with someone, like building your dream home, you get to know them very well and it is my opinion that Dean Herald and his team deserve nothing less than where they are perceived in the market place…”as leaders of their industry”

I would like to thank Dean and his team and would happily recommend Rolling Stone to anyone seeking excellence in Design and Development of Landscaping.
