About Add Style & Structure To Your Home With Natural Stone!

Add value and individuality to your property that will stand the test of time with affordable, quality design and construction.
Damian has worked in and around Melbourne and Victoria for more than 20 years in the professions of Landscape design/construction and Stonemasonry. In this time he has developed great depth in his skills, knowledge and understanding in his profession.

Damian delivers a service which is at all times professional, creative, efficient and responsive to the needs of the client maintaining high standards to achieve the best possible results; attention to detail, quality and pride of workmanship, meeting time frames, client/contractor relations, are paramount to his work ethos. It is these values that Damian has based his reputation and integrity upon.

It does not matter if your project is small or large. If you require someone who knows what they are doing and knows how to do it, call or make an enquiry today.


Consultancy is an important and valuable part of any process. It is an effective way to make a decision on issues such as problem solving, material choice, assessment of work carried out by other contractors, determining the viability of a particular project or obtaining costing for a project.

By engaging in this step, you will gain a better understanding of what you are to undertake which in turn will help you to make a educated decision. Good advice will definitely save you time and money in the long run.

There are many areas where a consultancy service can be of assistance. To discuss your project, fees, or to arrange a appointment, please call the number listed.


Stone as a material is about as natural as it gets and generally speaking it is as environmentally friendly as it gets. It is an extremely versatile material traditionally used for walling and paving as well as sculpture.

Damian has utilised stone for most of his career, in this time he has worked with a broad spectrum of stone and also benifited from working with many other Masons and frequent studies of historical work to aqcuire great depth in skill, comprehension and efficiency.

Stone can be used to add charecter by building a retaining wall, fire surround, paving, feature work, a folly for a large garden, sculptural work and more.

Whether you would like something built, some guidance for your own project or somewhere in between, take a look through the Stone Work Gallery to see what is possible and call to make further enquiries or to arrange a site visit. Note. Ology does not work with benchtops/vanities or standard form headstones.


A Native Garden in the City and Suburbs can have several benefits including water saving, building a familiarity to Native Flora and Fauna by bringing these elements closer to home, appreciating the seasons and often most importantly the effect planting a garden at home can have on your budget.

If you are looking to plant a Indigenous garden, we use stock with the closest provenance possible so that we know that it will suit your area best. A saving of up to 50% can be acheived, there are also long term savings on water usage, replacing dead or sick plants and fertiliser application.

We have a excellent knowledge base of Indigenous plants and soils so we can provide you with a Consultancy, Design, Supply and Planting service or combination of those services to best suit you. Call to make further enquiries or to arrange a site visit.


The Japanese Garden is sometimes seen as inappropriate for Australian conditions. It's true that it may be near impossible to maintain a moss carpet over a quarter acre block and we should also be wary of becoming trapped by a stereotype and using traditional Stone Lanterns and plants.
The term is can be misleading, even though it is a cultural style as it can also be used as a theoretical style and applied outside the boundaries of Japan itself.

This style of garden is a personal adventure and when designed and implemented correctly, the result is extremely rewarding. It can be employed in light wells, courtyards, entrances to private/commercial properties or larger spaces like front and back yards.

Damian has travelled to Japan several times to study these gardens in their native state as well as those created in Australia and has a strong understanding of the subject.

Please take some time to look through the Japan Garden Gallery for some inspiration.
