"So great to find a young company owned and operated by two talented and skilful young men. Elliot and Josiah created a magic space in my garden that will give our family and friends joy for decades to come. They provided an accurate quote, worked with my ideas, added creative value at every stage, sourced amazing materials, arrived early, left late, cleaned up daily and were demonstrably happy doing what they do. If anyone requires any further reference,please do not hesitate to contact me on 0407773716."
"My husband and I engaged Elliot and Josiah to build a dry stone wall along our driveway after recommendation from a neighbor. We were so impressed we got the boys back to do another run in the back yard. We were thrilled with the results and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. They produce a high standard of work and have pride in their workmanship."
"I recently employed 'Dowie Designs' to both repair some existing dry-stone garden walling and to build new terracing to match it, and I am thrilled with the result. It was not an easy job as the embankment was steep and the terraced walls had to adjoin existing stone steps but both their design and high quality of work eventuated in a very attractive outcome. Elliot and Josiah work with passion and skill and I highly recommend their company."
"Elliot and Josiah from Dowie Designs are two very talented and hard-working individuals who make the perfect landscaping team. They not only have an excellent practical skill set, but also a very strong sense of aesthetics, design, and visual style, resulting in work that is both structurally sound and visually striking. Their craftsmanship and eye for detail is second to none, and their energy and passion is off the charts."

"We were impressed with the tidy work ethic, creativity and willingness of Dowie Designs to complete tasks to a high standard. Their work involved using recycled materials, naturally occurring stone, bricks and pavers. The end result is not only visually striking but also professionally built to withstand the activities of a young family!!! Thank you Dowie Designs we would happily have you back again."
"My wife and I commissioned Josiah and Elliot to design and build dry slate walls at our property in McLaren Vale earlier this year. We had a broad outline of what we wanted to achieve, however we had no definitive plans and were open to input from them. This was quite a complex project as there were multiple levels to be considered, existing infrastructure that needed to be worked around and as the project progressed new possibilities arose that were able to be incorporated into the original design concept. Josiah and Elliot worked extremely well as a team, were easy to deal with and kept the work site clean at the end of each day. The works carried out included: sourcing slate for walling, steps and seating, planning wall and step construction, allowing for provision of services, preparing base works for wall construction, wall and step construction, planning and sourcing old red bricks for fire pit, paving and brick edging, fire pit construction and laying of red bricks for paving and edging. We were extremely happy with the finished product and would recommend Josiah and Elliot for any similar projects."

"We were very impressed with Dowie Designs. They promptly quoted the job,were reasonably priced and completed the task within a few days. They were skilled, professional and achieved a great result. We highly recommend Dowie Designs."
I have been working on memorial gardens for my husband and grandmother who both died last year. This has been a very cathartic under taking and I am pleased with my efforts and the help I have received from family and friends. When it came to building steps I followed Steven's advice of "leave it up to the professionals". Elliot and Josiah have built me marvellous steps. I am so happy with them that I am going to have more built on the other side of the garden. I highly recommend the work done by this company.
