We used Nick and his team to do a full backyard landscape. We had been putting it off for years and when when Nick joined us in the planning stage he had great vision for what the yard would look like. It was a huge task and we couldn’t be more happy with the final result. Beautiful tiered hand cut sandstone walls and a stunning sandstone stair case - a better stone mason you will not find in the business!


The top level also featured a fire pit, enclosed trampoline and monkey bars for the kids.


The bottom level has been tiled in travertine and words cannot describe it. To top it all off, Nick’s selection of plants has capped it off in what is an incredible backyard. 


The point of difference with Nick’s service is that we had complete transparency about the final cost all the way through the job, he delivered on budget, and we felt completely involved in every aspect of the decision making process with his expert guidance.


I would have no hesitation in recommending Nick for your job - and our before and after photos speak for themselves.


He is punctual, hardworking, has great vision and is a top bloke, oh and he likes his tea white with one - ha ha!

Nick designed and landscaped the garden at my home in Lamb Street Lilyfield in January 2011. The job involved building a 5m x 3m deck, raising and paving a driveway, recommending and planting appropriate foliage, and building a screen to conceal my bins.


I found Nick to be very professional, honest and respectful, plus he was mindful of council regulations and neighbours, and he kept me informed of any issues throughout the process, so we could discuss alternatives. The job was completed within budget and on time. 


The garden was better than I could have imagined, and in fact was so good that when I sold the house early this year, the agent used the landscaped garden as the lead photo on all advertising material. I’m sure the landscaping helped me achieve a price well above my expectations. 


I would highly recommend Nick to anyone looking to landscape their garden and would be happy to speak about my experience to any potential clients.

Nick and his team walked us through a big and tricky project. The works included extensive stone work, new foundations and paving for our existing deck, pool decking, new garden beds, irrigation and meeting council requirements. Nick further helped us with negotiations with our neighbour about using their driveway with heavy machinery.

We appreciated that Nick had time to give us an update each afternoon and he had great advice throughout the works. We found the team at Branching Out great to deal with and I had confidence that the end result would exceed our expectations and it sure did !!

Thanks again Nick !!

I engaged Nick Palatucci of Branching Out Landscapes to build a timber retaining wall and deck in the backyard of my St Ives home. The rocky topography made this a challenging task as it involved excavation of rock, design and construction of a substantial timber sleeper retaining wall and the installation of a recycled timber hardwood deck.


I was tremendously impressed with Nick's honest professionalism and hard work throughout the process which was finished on time and within budget. He was responsive to phone calls and kept me updated as the job progressed. Any possible variations were costed and discussed with me during the project prior to progressing. Most importantly he was polite and friendly to my wife and family and even the dog.


I would not hesitate in recommending Nick Palatucci for any landscape construction or design work as he has been a hard working and honest contractor who is capable of finishing challenging project to a high standard. I will engage him again for my next project without hesitation.

We have used Branching out landscaping at our home in North Turramurra on a number of occasions over the past 12 months. To date we have continued to contact Nick for all our landscaping requirements from decking, to screening, paving, tiling and landscape design and we have been extremely happy with the work completed.


A key factor in deciding to work with Nick and his team is Branching Outs business ethic. The team are always on time, transparent with solutions and costs and the finished product is always of an extremely high standard.


We have a number of projects we intend to complete in the future and I would highly recommend Branching Out Landscaping to others looking for landscaping solutions.
