About Us

Meet the owners

We specialise in permeable paving as well as landscape construction. Our wide range of knowledge, attention to detail and quality workmanship has allowed us to grow our business from a husband and wife team to a band of five workers. We install high quality permeable paving and landscapes for any application from domestic to heavy duty commercial pavements.

But what’s the New Dawn difference? You’ll deal with the people on this webpage. There’s no subcontracting of jobs, no sub-standard installations, no labour hire – just a quality company installing a specialised product properly while creating landscapes to last a lifetime!

We work all over Victoria, for both domestic and commercial clients – just get in touch and experience the New Dawn difference yourself!

“I’ll go the extra mile to install paving with a difference you can be proud of!”
