Here’s what our clients say about us...

Cathy Beitz

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.


Helen Hopgood

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.


Susie Parkinson

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.


Benjamin Joseph

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.

Kylie & Jordy Wilksch

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.

Michael Mortan

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. We were extremely happy with the finished product and would recommend Josiah and Elliot for any similar projects.

John & Jill Trewartha

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.

Sharyn Lockett

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.

Lucy Chipchase

Thank you Josiah and Elliot. My new back garden is amazing. I love it and really appreciated your work ethic, commitment to sustainability and your aesthetic. Love your work and couldn't speak more highly of you. Quite miss having you around too! Hope you come to the garden opening party!

Julia Hargreaves

Thanks Elliot for a job completed really quickly, and so neatly! We look forward to a beautiful even lawn where there was once only a complete mess of weeds and uneven ground. It was a job we had wanted to do for a long time and we were always overwhelmed by the thought of it. You came in and it was done in a jiffy! Many thanks, David and Julia.

Jemima Ruby

After years of putting up with gravel and weeds out the back and side of my place, I asked Dowie Designs to come in and work their magic. The results were spectacular! My space has been transformed with a mix of stone walls, brick edges, lush lawn, ferns, flowering borders, bamboo, and other pretty plants. This has all been kept green and healthy by the irrigation system carefully installed. Elliot and Ned have been very professional and creative with their work- I couldn't be happier with the end result! There has even been check up visits to make sure everything is going well. If you have a garden space you aren't sure what to do with, get Dowie Designs to come and plan something dreamy. You will love their work!

Sarah Edwards

Elliot, thank you so much for the wonderful wall and brick edging, we are thrilled with your work! The wall makes such a difference to the front of our home, and lifts our spirits each time we look at it.

Chris Addis

Elliot and Josiah did an amazing job of building a wall at the front of our house. We are so pleased with the result and even our neighbours have popped in to say how impressed they were with their hard work and the end result. Thanks guys!!!

Lydia Weigall

Our experience with the boys was in dry stone slate work and paving. They were reliable, hard working and their attention to detail was excellent.

They use a mix of current day methods and stone work skills of the past.

Trustworthy and conscientious.

Nick Maxy

Had the guys build a large slate dry wall to prevent the bank behind continuing to erode. They have done an amazing job and both my fiance and I are very happy. It is a shame that the wall is behind the house because it looks so good! The guys are prompt, efficient, friendly and hardworking which is what you want in the tradies you use. We will be recommending Dowie Designs to all our friends and family and will definitely be using them again in the future! Highly recommend!!!
