"Frank was recommended to us by our builder during our renovation of a 1930’s home. He was able to skilfully reuse existing sandstone foundation blocks to blend our new garage with the existing house as well as build garden edging. We were so thrilled with Frank’s work that we engaged him to use our existing sandstone flagging to cover 90 square metres on our driveway. Frank has a great eye for detail and achieve a first class job. It was fascinating to see a huge pile of rock turned into a magnificent driveway that looks original to the house. Frank’s work has been admired by many and has added that final touch to our renovation. We would have no hesitation in recommending him for any stone work."
Antony and Jacqui
"Frank has worked on and constructed a wide range of projects for Harrison’s Landscaping over the last 10 years, and he is often called in to manage our more difficult sites. He is professional, returns phone calls, has amazing attention to detail, is an excellent communicator and brings a refreshingly positive attitude to every project. Frank has an incredibly diverse range of skills which include stonework, retaining walls and timber work. I have received numerous unsolicited comments from satisfied clients over the years and I am more than happy to recommend Frank for any projects in the future."

What Should I Consider when Selecting Stone?
The natural beauty of stone is timeless and there is a broad spectrum of different applications, stones, colours and finishes available.
STONE COLOUR AND PATTERN: An extensive range of natural stones and finishes are available. Variations in colour, pattern, and texture provide limitless design potential. Colours ranging from golden browns and tans, to rustic reds and oranges, to buff greys and whites.
STONE FINISH: The techniques used by the stone masons to craft the stone significantly change the finished look. Stone can be gang sawn, machine sawn, hydro split, rockfaced, picked, dressed, all achieving very different looks. Also the technique used to finish the joint dramatically change the overall finish for example dry wall or iron, flush and tuck jointed.
SOLID STONE or STONE CLADDING: Whether to select solid stone or stone cladding for your project will depend on various factors. For example is there a pre-existing masonry wall, is the wall a retaining wall, how many corners are required, will the wall have capping, is the wall double sided or only seen from one side.
