Could not recommend Sue and her team more highly. Such a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. So professional whether it was Sue, team in the office or Anthony the landscaper. Final result is whenever I walk outside I smile.

Paul & Debra, Pimpama

After moving into our home 2 years ago, we spent a lot of time contemplating how to landscape the front of the house. Luckily we found Sue and the Grotec team who converted our ideas into an exciting transformation. From the start they listened to our thoughts and we found them extremely knowledgeable and professional. Together with a great landscaping construction team headed by Anthony, the results are beyond our expectations. Thank you Grotec!

Trevor & Michelle, Reedy Creek
Sue, thank you for your work – you clearly have a talent for what you do. The landscape plan looks great and you did an outstanding job helping guide us and giving us the budget guidance we needed to execute on that plan. Thank you for working on this and giving it priority, I now have the bits and pieces I need to seek body corporate approval.
Jim Livingstone, Runaway Bay
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the fantastic job you have done creating our new paved area and gardens. Mary and I would be happy at any stage to be forwarded as a referee in the future should you ever have the need.
Clive & Mary James, Merrimac
It has been awesome working with you. Love working with good, quality people especially women who are focused and connect to the customer. We will be working again soon… once the construction process commences. I have already recommended you. Love your style, love your work, love your service.
Rita Dee, Calypso Bay
Sue Bampton from Grotec was fantastic with regards to the landscaping around our new house! My husband and I didn’t really know how or where to start – it was all quite daunting to us – but Sue guided us through the process from drawing up plans then tweaking them to our preferences, right through to contracting all the tradespeople (rock wall specialists, carpenters for decking , earthworks and machinery etc).

She had a real “eye” for what would work with our block and the creativity to see how it would all tie in with the house and existing structures. Having Sue oversee the project really took the pressure of us and we had piece of mind knowing that the work was being supervised and checked regularly.

When there were a few little hiccups, or things didn’t go exactly according to plan with the tradesmen, Sue was right on it – calmly resolving matters and keeping things on track. We are extremely happy with the end result and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sue and Grotec for any landscaping or gardening projects.

Traci & Bastiaan Bolt, Nerang
Before contacting Sue we had a number of quotes to fix our dying garden beds that were all well beyond our budget. Sue took a common sense approach to our problem and after doing a soil test was able to come up with a landscape design that was effective, attractive and much cheaper than any of the other quotes we received.

Throughout the process she was able to provide us with the names of high quality suppliers who offered valued for money. We have now completed the first stage of our re-planting programme and we are delighted with the results.

I would gladly recommend Sue to any group or individual who is looking for a low-cost but effective solution to their gardening or landscaping problems.

Karen has been an absolute pleasure to deal with, her expertise is second to none and her and her team’s delivery is exceptional! She has really exceeded our expectations!

We are extremely happy with her work and the result, and would recommend her without hesitation!

Thank you again!

Sunny Wood, Labrador

Having a blank canvas to work with sounds exciting, but for me, it was also overwhelming, until I met Sue & the team at Grotec. From the moment she sat with us to discuss our lifestyle, time and what overall look we wanted to see to compliment our new home, Sue’s knowledge and passion clearly showed.

A few weeks of “controlled mess” was certainly well worth the end result. The plants that have been chosen are just perfect! The compliments we get are endless. The garden is young but with the quality of work and excellent ground preparation the plants are thriving and the look changes everyday. Nothing was a problem – being able to make minor adjustments along the way when we all saw a need, was effortless.

We are very, very happy with our new gardens and would certainly recommend the Grotec team to anyone looking for superior work, a friendly team and results that will make you very happy.

Kate McPherson, Broadbeach Waters
I have been asked to pass on to you the following from the Committee of Beaches Apartments. At its recent Annual General Meeting, Beaches Body Corporate voted in favour of a resolution to waterproof the podium and refurbish the gardens. Support was overwhelming, in part because of the outstanding garden design that you provided.

We want you to know how much we appreciate your contribution to our garden refurbishment. We were very impressed with your professional approach and your personal dedication and commitment. Without your contribution, our garden plan would be much less impressive. Our best personal wishes and sincere thanks to you and your Grotec colleagues.

Dianna Butler, Beaches Apartments, Surfers Paradise
I just wanted to thank you so much for all yours and you team’s hard work with the landscaping of our new home at Robina. From the first visit through the Landscape Plan, you were great in explaining the type of soils, types of plants and best of all is your calendar hints on what things to do in the garden each month throughout the year, we use it and now that our garden is about 7 months old, we are really happy with the growth of our garden and all our visitors comment on who did it and what a great established garden we have.

We really do appreciate all your after sales service by coming back to check on how our plants are going and the turf, it shows you guys do actually care about the work you did and that we are happy, a rare thing indeed these days. Sue, please thank your son Rob as well, he was great and the other young guys, they all worked together well and we will gladly use you again on our next house, which is currently in the making.

Don & Ann Flemming, The Gallery, Robina
When we moved into our new home the gardens needed some serious attention, they looked tired and disorganised. We wanted to create a beautiful garden to compliment our home but were unsure where to start. Thank you Sue and the Grotec Team for all your help this last year, our gardens and lawns look fantastic and we are really proud of what we’ve achieved. The transformation is amazing!
John & Kelly Andrews, Hope Island

Grotec Landscape Solutions have been involved in many of our projects for last 3 years. From the start we were impressed with aesthetic ideas and the creative and sensitive manner in which Sue & the Team were able to design a plan that not only looked great on paper but also looked great once it was all done on the site. We are delighted with the results and would not hesitate to recommend Grotec Landscape Solutions to anyone who is looking for a quality work and well thought landscape design.

Boris Stankovic, Director of Boris Design - Building Design Studio
We’ve moved from acreage to a townhouse. I know what to do in big spaces for gardens – but had no idea what to do in a very small space. Sue and Karen came up with great ideas and Karen has been an absolute delight to work with on a daily basis – so clever and thinks outside the box. What’s more is that the plants actually love her – she only has to be with them for a very short while and they all perk up. It is starting to come together so beautifully. A few more tweaks and we are done. Thanks team xx
Teresa & Alex Douglas, Main Beach

I have my home in Mermaid Waters and one day I decided that the front gardens looked a mess as did the back terraced ones going down to the canal. To re landscape them was a daunting task – that is until I met Sue Bampton from Grotec landscape Solutions.

Sue has a vast knowledge of plant life and landscaping and obviously enjoys her work immensely which translates into her doing a great job. I am so pleased with our outcome based on Sues advice as to what to keep, what not and what new to plant and how to get the maximum effect from pruning etc etc and she is such a delightful person to work with – a genuinely warm and caring person to boot.

Thank you Sue for making the transformation a great experience -full marks to Sue and Grotec

Peter Knight, Mermaid Waters

Thanks Sue! You were a great help, especially for somebody, like me, that does not have green fingers.

I appreciate you transforming my jungle into a garden that is beautiful.

Looking forward to your seasonal guidance.

Thanks so much.

Renee Mackintosh, Clear Island Waters

Thanks to all at Grotec who worked on my wonderful garden. From design to execution the service was great and Sue and Jared were extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

Grotec managed the installation, which was done by Ecofootprint Landscapes who did a terrific job in a difficult installation, so thanks to Hendrik and Zac as well.

I love my new garden and the seasonal follow ups with Sue will be great for a non gardener like me.

Deborah, Robina

Our landscape project began with our vague concept and vision for the renewal and transformation of the front area of our home. Our paths had become uneven and broken, and the exposed aggregate had become too deep and unpleasant to walk on. Our gardens were becoming tired, and needed a redesign, rather than a cosmetic, ad hoc set of improvements. Realising this, we wanted to restart from a blank canvas, and identify our design brief as a basis for consultation, reflection and an enhanced design. We did some investigations and selected Grotec Landscape Solutions to provide their expertise and to assist us with this project.

Key to the success of our amazing courtyard transformation was the initial design stage, carried out with Sue and Jarred. We understood the importance of this phase, and consulted extensively. This included identifying key aspects of our design brief – having an improved sense of entry and arrival to our home, having a coastal/beach house feel consistent with our interior design, being a place where we could relax, and having a sub-tropical planting plan where we could interact with and relax in our garden. This design process considered the functionality (for use by family, including our grandchildren having space to play), aesthetics (colour palette, mood board), and how this would integrate architecturally with our home, including removal of the existing driveway and replacement of this with a modern driveway to integrate with the new front entry and courtyard.

An important strategy within this design process was being referred to Anthony (Apunga Landscapes) and to Charlie (MyRenovator). They provided additional, helpful insights to the design, including hardscaping (retaining walls, garden soil, grass, pebbles, mulch, tiled paths, and garden lighting) and building (pergola, screen, and entry) construction ideas. Sue and Jarred developed several design drafts, shaped and responding to various planning discussion and reflections to produce a design which included key details, including planting theme and placement of each plant, and soil enhancement, and later we were provided with a maintenance plan.

We have been thrilled and excited at every stage of this process, and, in particular, we have been impressed with the quality, their meticulous care, and the communication of all of the tradespeople who worked so cohesively and collaboratively to create an amazingly transformed space for us to now enjoy.

Each stage has been absolutely exciting, from the excavation of our existing gardens and paths through to the planting and garden lights being switched on for the first evening. This final stage showed that Grotec had ticked all of the individual boxes to create an integrated overall amazing garden. It is now a place where there are gorgeous plants, it is visually very attractive to us, and our enjoyment can grow, as the garden grows. To assist here, we were pleasantly impressed with the followup provided by Sue in the provision of the exceptional Seasonal Garden Schedule which provides guidance throughout future seasons. Sue exudes a passion for plants and conveyed her wisdom for creating the optimal soil conditions for enabling the continuing well-being of our garden.

Glenn and Patsy Finger, Coombabah
