What people say?​

Cityscapes made the entire process of our pool and landscaping construction an absolute breeze. From the design stage and throughout the construction we felt completely informed and at ease. Despite access issues and a very steep block, we are thrilled with the end result!! We couldn’t recommend Jules and his team enough. Best in the business!

Hamish & Sasha

Jules and the team completed our landscaping today and I’m so pleased with the results. They were polite, listened and responded to any concerns or questions I had. Such a great work ethic too- turned up on time and put in a full day's work to get it done in one day. I wish we had used them for the pool! Thanks team!


Robyn Dickie

These guys do amazing work, they turn up on time every day, and they cleaned up before they left every day. Their work is first class and their prices are very reasonable. I would totally recommend them if you are in the market for a new pool, or just an outside landscape makeover.



Brad Hay

Fantastic. The whole team was AWESOME! We now have the most beautiful pool. Highly recommend this company.
