Frequently Asked Questions


What can we help you with? 
We specialise in tidy ups and general garden maintenance, including:
* hand weeding (or spraying with natural products only)
* lawn mowing (small areas/nature strips only)
* pruning
* planting
* garden makeovers
* preparation for sale
* applying soil amendments & mulch

How much do we charge? 
For general garden maintenance we charge $40 per labour hour. 
If your garden has been let go a little please contact us for a personalised quote on your initial clean up.  Once we’re on top of things we find that monthly visits of up to 4 hours is generally enough for most properties. 

What suburbs do we service?  
We service Eltham (Victoria) and surrounding suburbs. 
If you are more than 10km away from Eltham we may still be able to help you!  Just keep in mind that a travel fee will apply.  

Do we have an ABN?  
Absolutely!  Our ABN is 48 891 334 350.

Are we insured?  
Yes indeed we are!  Our Public Liability Certificate of Currency is available on request.  

Is there anything we can’t do?  
If we can't do it, then it's highly likely we know someone who can.  We do not offer pruning of high hedges and/or large trees, mowing of larger lawn areas, ride on mowing, hard landscaping (such as retaining walls & paths etc.), spraying of poisonous/dangerous chemicals.
