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)
* pruning
* planting
* garden makeovers
* preparation for sale
* applying soil amendments & mulch

* lawn mowing (generally smaller areas & nature strips only)

How much do we charge? 
For general garden maintenance our rates begin at $45 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. 

Our rates for mowing and specialist pruning vary according to the work and equipment required.


Can you take our green waste away?

Of course we can!  For ongoing maintenance most clients have enough room in their green waste bins.  For larger properties and clean ups charges vary according to the quantity and weight. 

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.
