By 1980, the company expanded into landscape construction and commercial markets, collaborating with developers in Greater Western Sydney. Auscape Pty Ltd was established in 1995, focusing on commercial landscaping. Grant, still active in the business, works alongside his children, Brenton and Holly. Auscape now operates divisions for commercial construction, specializing in parks, playgrounds, and preschools, as well as residential construction and maintenance.
