I can't adequately express the amazing service that I have received from Matt, Stef & the team at Area1. It was nothing but exceptional from initial contact, to inspecting the job, dealing with my insurance company & final installation of our fence that had blown over in a storm. Communication was amazing and the job was completed efficiently & professionally by courteous, pleasant tradesmen who cleaned up after the job. So happy !. Highly recommend this business.

I was very happy with my experience with area1 fencing. Matt went above and beyond. And although he was fully booked out at the time, my fence and retaining wall needed to be completed with the sense of urgency. He shuffled things around to squeeze me in. He also came and worked on weekends and I can't fault the quality of work. Cheers guys

Thank you Area 1 Group. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a new fence. I'm really happy with the finished product. As I was going away and wanted my property secured before I left I was delighted that they were able to finish the job before I had to leave. They arrived on time to do the original quote and on the day the fence was being installed. They removed the old fence and erected the new one efficiently. Lynne Trezise

Matt and the team were fantastic. I had an old broken down wooden retaining wall at the front of my house. Matt was so easy to talk to and he understood what I wanted and gave me great suggestions regarding height, length and styles that would suit my house. Highly recommend Matt and the Area1 team. Thank so much. Now for the fun job of creating a new garden ready for spring :)
