I can’t recommend Tom and Hailee from Live to Dig highly enough. When we decided to go ahead with having a fiberglass pool installed, we had several installers come out and give us quotes. Not only did Tom provide us with a competitive quote, but Live to Dig were the only ones who offered to project manage the process for us when it became obvious that we needed to get development approval. Hailee guided us through the development approval process excellently and was more than happy to answer all our questions.

When it came to installing the pool, Tom kept us informed all the way. He was happy to go above and beyond, was very respectful to our neighbours and cared about the high standard of service he was delivering and how neatly he left our place when the job was done.

Tom’s level of service is way above all the other trades people that we have had to deal with recently. He turns up when he says he will or lets you know if he can’t.

We are very grateful to Tom and Hailee for ‘holding our hands’ through the entire process. We were new to the pool installation process and would have certainly got lost trying to do it ourselves. It is fair to say that without Live to Dig, we probably wouldn’t have gone ahead with getting a pool installed.

Thank you Tom and Hailee.

We had our pool built by Live To Dig in 2022.

Tom was fantastic and took care of everything, explaining what needed to happen along the way and was extremely patient and flexible while waiting for Council Approvals. Hailee was also very helpful, always taking the time to explain the process and answer our questions as we went. The finished product is amazing and we are extremely happy with our new pool. Hailee and Tom even helped us to figure out how to use our new pool and equipment by engaging our local pool experts to come and explain ongoing usage and maintenance. Thanks guys, love ya work!!!!!

Live to Dig did an excellent job of installing our pool and surrounding landscaping. Tom and his crew are true professionals, taking pride in what they do and the product they deliver. Their eye for detail and level of care in achieving a quality product shows in what they do. We couldn't be happier and would highly recommend them to all our friends and family.

Tom and Hailee


We would like to thank you and your team for making our pool install a smooth process. It is a bit daunting getting a pool installed with all the stories you here of the cost blowing out and bad service. The team at Live to Dig have provided first class service, from the initial quote to updates on the process from Hailee, to Tom and his team always being on time, polite and happy to explain what is happening when onsite. We would highly recommend the Live to Dig team for any pool install.

We are so glad we engaged Tom and his team to install our pool. Tom’s attention to detail was impressive, and it was evident he takes pride in his work. Tom and his team were respectful and friendly at all times and we felt very comfortable having them at our home. We highly recommend Live to Dig to others.

Tom did an incredible job on our sandstone block retaining wall. We experienced some delays due to the weather and Tom kept us up to date the whole time. When work was able to commence Tom worked extra hours each day to get the job done. His attention to detail impressed not only us but anyone else in our street who passed by! Not only does the work look great and has made a massive difference to our house, Tom is a friendly and professional person. We would highly recommend Live to Dig.

Kath and I hired Tom to add drainage, and a retaining wall to our property. Great service, reliability and first class workmanship. I am a very fussy tradie myself and really expect the same out of companies that we have hired to ready our house for sale. I was not disappointed with Live to Dig. Tom, you are truly a gentleman and I would recommend Live to Dig to anyone seeking fair honest pricing and a top job to follow

​I did want to put into writing just how pleased and satisfied Kate and I have been with all the work that Tom did for us. The work included drainage,excavation in very difficult circumstances and concreting. All the work was carried out meticulously and on time. I would happily recommend Tom and Live to Dig to any one needing his services.

​Hi there,

I would just like to express my gratitude to Tom from Live To Dig.

After contacting a number of excavation companies on the central coast and Newcastle, I eventually got onto Tom who agreed to have a look at a job for a close friend of mine.

He was not only punctual but the professionalism and quality of his work speaks for itself.

I urge anyone how may need excavation and concreting done to contact Tom as you will not disappointed.

Thank you for your efforts Tom!
