ABOUT EVOLUTION CONSTRUCTION & LANDSCAPES DIRECTOR CRAIG

 

Evolution Construction & Landscapes Owner Craig has always had a passion for the outdoors. Ever since he was young he has loved being in the Garden and building things out of wood.  Watching this passion, his Dad suggested he start a Landscaping business.

First Craig wanted to explore the world, leaving his hometown of Sydney’s Northern Beaches to travel around Europe. He ended up setting up Camp in Spain for 4 years where he became fluent in Spanish and had the opportunity to work in Spanish and French gardens, further developing his love of Landscaping.

On the weekends you’ll find Craig in the garage (man cave) whipping up Chopping boards and furniture for the house all out of recycled wood and old pallets or out on Pittwater enjoying his other passion…the ocean!

MEET THE TEAM

 

Colin Flynn

If you don't already know this friendly face, we'd like to  introduce you to Colin Flynn. Working alongside Craig since September last year Colin is our Team Supervisor and we know you will love him as much as we do...

Where in Ireland is he from?

Mitchelstown, a small country town in county Cork.

Why he came to Australia?

I came to Australia for the adventure and opportunities to travel and work. Ireland was in a financial crisis when I left and those opportunities were harder to find.

What he likes about Landscaping & Construction?

I love the outdoors and physical work. I really enjoy building so working for Evolution is ideal for me.

What he is doing when he's not working?

Going to the beach and doing coastal walks, sport and hanging out with friends and family.

TURNING HOME GROWN LEEKS INTO CHICKEN AND LEEK PIE

 

Last week we harvested leeks that we had been growing in our garden and turned them into a delicious chicken and leek pie!

Leeks are SO easy to grow. They grow best in full sun or part shade, keep soil moist but well drained - they grow all year round and are generally pest free!

 

FAREWELLING A FRIEND

2 weeks ago we had to say goodbye to our beautiful foreman Saba. If you have ever had any work done by us it is more than likely you would have had Saba on site running around being part of the action (and probably licking you to death). She and Craig were partners in crime for almost 14 years, learning the ropes from when she was just a puppy. She was such a ray of sunshine and will be so incredibly missed.

 

 

 

ROOF RESTORATION

 

Did you know we also do Roof Restorations using Dulux Cool Roof technology??

Reasons to get your roof sprayed;

 - Add instant value to your home - thinking of selling? A fraction of the cost of replacing your roof

 - 10 year written guarantee

 - Colour lock technology, roof will retain it's colour for many years

 - Dulux Infra Cool technology can lower roof temperature by 20-40 degrees

 - The radiant heat barrier reflects light before it's absorbed and magnified as heat

 - Insulation (by contrast) only treats the effect AFTER the heat is absorbed by the surface and transferred

 - Reduce your cooling costs by 40% in summer

 - Reduce carbon emissions. Lower your carbon footprint!

 - In non air conditioned facilities such as workshops and warehousing, cool roofs translate immediately to cooler working and warehousing facilities, improving productivity and stability of stored goods.

 - Range of colours to choose from.
