It all started with a man, a truck and a loader… or so the story goes.

Watson Davies Landscape Supplies may be offering customers new products, but the company has a history here in the Waikato dating back to the 1970s and the foundations on which the company built its success are still very much the pillars on which the landscaping business operates today.

Watson Davies was established in 2003 when two stalwarts of the site construction industry combined forces. With 30 years experience in the industry, Brain Watson purchased Davies Transport offering contractors, developers, customers and clients a full service of siteworks services. Over time that included a yard with aggregates and materials to simplify completing site development and landscaping projects.

Fast forward to 2018, and Watson Davies has a larger depot, committed staff and a bigger focus on landscape supplies. The essence of the company remains the same – quality products and lasting relationships.

Good customer service is at the heart of the offering here at Watson Davies Landscape Supplies, as well as quality products to ensure you can get the job done.

Whether you’re embarking on some DIY in the backyard or laying the foundations for a commercial development, at Watson Davies Landscape Supplies you’ll find all you need to do the job right.

“After getting our landscaping concept plans, Watson Davies was our first point of call for landscaping supplies. They advised us on the materials we needed and ensured we had the quality of products we required to achieve our landscaping goals.”
