Service Information

Established in 1987, Daracon Landscaping was born from the need to service commercial and industrial in landscaping and revegetation, and continues this plight to this day. 

Today, we have incorporated Hunter Hydromulching as an integral part of the Landscaping Division and developed into a standalone operation that employs upwards of 35 staff, utilising cutting-edge machinery, tools and equipment, and boasts a client list that includes both internal and external projects throughout Newcastle, regional NSW, and Sydney. 

We are committed to providing better solutions, services and end results that represent long lasting value for every client. Our objective is to be the best single-source solution for landscaping, catering to a broad range of clients including councils, developers, government bodies, mining companies and the high-end residential market.

Daracon Landscaping projects are maintained by our in-house maintenance team to ensure the high quality of our projects is retained throughout the handover stage.
