We recently built in Stonecutters Ridge estate at Colebee, and Colin’s signs were plastered around the neighbourhood. When asking the neighbours their thoughts on his work, we received nothing but positive comments, so we contacted Colin to provide us with a quote. We did get quite a few people to quote, as we were working to a fairly specific budget. But even though others were cheaper, we kept coming back to Colin because he offered us a level of confidence and integrity that was missing from all the others. His knowledge of the Australian Standards and local council regulations is exceptional, and his ability to turn a vision into a reality is fantastic. Colin has done quite a bit of work for us, and it’s still going.

Active Industries is by far the best and most dedicated team of Landscapers we could have ever hoped for. Colin is across every aspect of his business and goes above and beyond for all of his clients. You will pay more more for the higher quality, but you won’t be replacing his work in two years time. The quality of materials used is of the highest quality and everything is guaranteed. Colin works long hours to ensure the work is done as fast as possible, even working until 7pm to get it done. We were hoping to get our landscaping done by Christmas and Colin made it happened for us and we couldn’t be happier. Active Industries are trustworthy, reliable and we highly recommend them!!
Seriously! Colin’s work is impeccable. We recently had a fairly large deck built by him and I can honestly say it is by far the best deck I’ve ever seen.
We had some reasonably complex excavation done which included retaining walls and drainage. Colin talked to us at length before providing a detailed and accurate quote. The work was done very efficiently, to our specifications and was of a high quality. Colin made sure we always knew what was going on and answered any questions accurately and courteously. We were very pleased with the work done and would recommend him to anyone.
I wanted a backyard makeover for my Villa. Several Quotes were obtained but Colin won the job, not because he was the cheapest but because of the professional way in which he conducted himself. He listened to what I wanted including budget, He made suggestions and the reasons why and came up with exactly what I needed. Rare for a trades person to call you if they are running late and even rarer for them to turn up on the day they say at the allocated time. Colin and his team of masterful tradespeople did a fantastic job and I keep admiring the transformation done by this professional band of tradespeople. Cleaned up afterwards as well which was a bonus and no hidden extra costs. I am one very very happy customer. Family and friends say I now have a “Wow” factor backyard. Thanks Colin.
We recently had Active Industries Services Pty Ltd build for us a Retaining Wall with Drainage. Colin and his team have done an excellent job, the work is of the highest quality with Colin explaining every aspect of the build as it progressed. I would highly recommend Active Industries to anyone wanting quality work done by quality people.
We have recently built in Bungarribee (Bunya Estate). Through obtaining a few quotes on our landscaping, we found Colin to be the most thorough with quoting and also took the time explaining and answering any questions we had. Colin listened to any requests we had with our landscaping. He has a high standard of work and does not take shortcuts. We are very happy with the outcome of our landscaping and would recommend to anyone. Thanks, Josh.
My wife and recently built a new home in The Ponds, which had considerable challenges with respect to drainage and landscaping. We engaged Colin’s services and from the first day we met, we haven’t looked back. Colin delivers an incredibly high standard of work and we were very impressed by his reliability. Colin often arrived before 6am in the dark to catch up on delays from inclement weather and he always delivered on his timing. Colin was prepared to speak very honestly from his own experience and gave us excellent advice regarding choice of turf, layout and drainage. Colin was also very upfront and transparent regarding quotations and pricing. There were no surprises when it came to payment which is very unusual. I HIGHLY recommend Active Industries to anyone needing landscaping!
Colin recently completed a considerable retaining wall job for me. Not only did he precisely listen to what I wanted but delivered on that exactly. He worked tirelessly from 5am to 8pm some days due to weather setbacks. His work was of a very high standard and my wife and I are extremely pleased with the finished work. A very honest tradesman(something very rare in this world especially Sydney) and all round great bloke who gave plenty of helpful advice on other ideas I had. I have already recommended him to my inlaws and if you need any walls, excavation or landscaping look no further than Colin, you certainly will not be disappointed.
Colin recently completed a re-turf and landscaping job for us. From day one Colin was professional and reliable, arrived on time for site visits, listened to our requirements and made recommendations. The price quoted was what we paid, even after adding some extra work to the initial scope. The work was carried out to the highest standard and has transformed our garden. We are delighted with result and have no hesitation in recommending Colin. We will definitely consider him for future work. Thanks Colin – it’s great to deal with a hardworking honest tradesman – much appreciated.
work form 630am–730pm until a job is done, my builder is very happy. Will recommend to all. M thanks!
We found Colin after asking a nearby homeowner who built their fantastic rendered retaining wall. After talking to Colin, it was quickly evident that Colin was professional and unlike the others that had quoted us; he actually listened to our requirements, was on time & did as he said he would. We were so pleased and confident in his work that we also asked Colin to construct a deck, pergola & letterbox which are of an extremely high standard. We will use Colin for any future work and I have no hesitation in recommending him! Thank you Colin,
We were in the process of having a new home built and Colin’s signs were popping up in front yards advertising his business. One of the neighbours we asked said he was very happy with Colin’s work so we arranged to meet (he turned up at the time agreed) and worked out what we wanted. Got the quote, happy with the quote and started the work. Colin worked in with our builder to do the rear yard retaining wall before access was blocked with building work. Work completed, love the driveway, the retaining walls look fantastic and finished off with the sandstone capping on the letterbox pillar. Quoted price is what we paid even after a few changes. We have to say that the people who work for him are first rate and have had plenty of comments how good it all looks.
A few months ago we had Colin do Colin do some build retaining walls & concrete paths. there was a significant amount of excavation that needed to be carried out. Everything was done with a very high standard of work. The most pleasing part of the experience was that Colin was running the job at all times & he did everything he said he would. I would most certainly recommend him to anyone especially if they are after a quality finish to their landscaping. I will be asking him back to do some more excavation work in the coming month if he can fit me in.. Thank you Colin much appreciated.
I recently got my landscaping done for my new house – got a few quotes, however, selected Colin of Active Industries to do the job, because – the price quoted was reasonable but most important – Colin was the only person who recommended a solution which really suited my landscaping and backyard needs. Was really glad that I had selected Colin for the job – He did exactly what he had promised to do and in a timely manner. He gave me good solid advice throughout the process and saved me a lot of the hassle involved. The final outcome was even better than I had anticipated. I would recommend Colin for anyone who would like to know exactly what to expect with no hidden surprises and a quality finish. Thanks Colin for a job very well done
I chose Active Industries purely because they had lots of reviews. Colin did a garden path around my new extension. I had several people quote on the job but Colin was the only one who listened to what I wanted. I kept telling the “others” I need to consider some kind of drainage and each quote came back with no drainage proposal. Colin gave me a reasonable quote with drainage. Despite being busy, he fit the job in to accommodate my builders. He did an excellent job and along the way, he gave helpful and much appreciated advice. I highly recommend Colin.
I was introduced to Colin through a friend of mine after I told him that I had trouble trying to get a landscaper to excavate my backyard, build a retaining wall and lay the turf.I tried contacting several landscapers but none ever had the courtesy to even call back. Lucky I was given Colin’s number by my friend, he answered his phone the first time I called, and kept his promise to meet me on site as planned. He gave me a written quote which was very competitive. I informed him that I wanted the job finished before Christmas and he kept to the deadline.
Recently we engaged Colin to cut up 10 metre of concrete next to our swimming pool and planted 6 conifers (great choice) and it looks great. The job was finished professionally in one day. Great customer service and very reliable. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a landscaper. Thank you Colin.
We are very happy with the landscaping job done by Colin. You can rely on him. He delivers what he promise. We will highly recommend him to our friends. Thanks Colin for a job well done !
We recently had Colin doing our landscaping for our new house. He was a pleasure to work with, very reliable and always on time. Our job included an On-site above ground Detention System, retaining wall, letter box, garden beds & turf supply and lay. The job was completed with a high standard and within our time frame. Colin was happy to answer all our questions & always return our calls. I recommend Colin to anyone who would like to have a quality landscaping work with a competitive price. Thank Colin 🙂
I recently had Colin chop down my palm trees, I found him very reliable, answering my phone call straight away then quoting the job that night, I was very impressed and didnt even bother about getting any other quotes. Colin did my job within the next couple of days as promised, I was very happy with the job and no mess was left behind. My parents came over that weekend and also were very impressed. I soon have a little landscaping job to be done which I would deffinatley get Colin to do. I strongly recommend his company for any future work. Thank you Colin.
Hi, I first had Colin excavate my back yard in which he was on time and the job was done that day to a exceptional standard. I have now had him do my retaining wall and garden edge at the front of my house and the job i sensational. He has never been late from quote from to completion. The brick work is better than the company i built my house with. In chatting to Colin i can see that he is still very customer focused even after 15 years of experience. Just to add the quote i had in writing had everything written on it so both of us were clear on what was expected for my money which was the best quote out of the 3 i had. Well done Active industries, i wish more contractors were this easy and good. See you for my next project.
