  • House Keeping: Please pick up after your dogs before your garden booking

    We love your dogs, but we don't love their poops. Our amazing team are often rummaging around in your garden on their hands and knees, pulling out weeds & planting new delights. The occasional doggie present is unavoidable and we are happy to accommodate these mishaps. However, navigating a minefield can be difficult. On the odd occasion where one too many crew members have stuck their hand in a turd, it can be difficult to schedule staff willing to work at your property. We ask if you can please be mindful of our crew and do a quick pick up before we arrive. Mel & her team thank you in advance! Cheers

  • We've been busy in the garden: waitlist updates, gift vouchers & more...

    Not sure about everyone else - but we're all feeling rather relieved as we catch up on all sorts of fall out from the last few years of weirdness. We've finally (mostly) caught up on the waiting list and we've been able to get out to meet lots of new faces and gardens - it's been ace and we're having heaps of fun! Gift Vouchers We've also been able to re-instate our gift vouchers now that the wait list is down - perfect for Mother's Day - and way better than slippers! Although - slippers are pretty cool. So are chocolates, cats and wine. #justsayin' Team Updates We've also - sadly for us! - seen our amazing Bridget move on to a new and very exciting chapter in her horticulture career. We are sure many of you will miss her happy face and superstar gardening skillz (we are already!). But never fear, the rest of the garden crew will step in! And in the meantime, here's a question for YOU.. Wanna join our garden gang & work for the best boss in the history of the world? ...and yes - I do write these myself 😎 Because our team are just so awesome and amazing, we are constantly on the verge of being fully booked . Sooooo.....we're looking for more garden helpers. If you think you've got the goods - or you know someone who has - get onto sussing out the job deets here! That's it from Mel and the team for now. Don't forget to stay up to date with all our latest promos, shenanigans and other fun things on our socials: Facebook & Instagram Cheers!

  • Services | Mel's Garden Care & Maintenance

    We can help you give your garden the attention it deserves! Weeding Weeds can take over your garden in just a few weeks. Don't have the time or inclination to tackle the jungle? We can get in there and they will be gone before you know it! If hand weeding isn't a viable option for your property, there are natural and organic options available which we love because we are all about these alternatives. However, sometimes our weed whacking arms combined with our natural and organic alternatives come up against some weeds that have just gone next level! So when this happens we unfortunately (as our last resort) use chemical sprays... The good news even though we so rarely have to use these sprays our team are trained to do so safely! General Tidying ​ Is your garden just messy and you have no motivation to tidy it up? ​Life is busy and sometimes our gardens get left behind. Don't feel bad! ​Let us have a look and we will see what we can do. ​ Pruning ​ Pruning stimulates new growth and will keep your shrubs, trees and grasses in tip-top shape. ​I promise I will call you back & I will actually show up on time! WOW! Garden Makeovers & Preparation for Sale ​ Are you selling? Street appeal of a home can drastically increase sale prices. Does your garden need a fresh new look? Your garden can be transformed with a garden makeover. Planting ​ Are your plants happy where they are? Are some in places that make no sense? Do you have a blank canvas or just need to start again? Improving soil quality and carefully selecting plants will make all the difference to your garden. Let us help you! Mulching ​ Mulch is essential in any garden, but it's not just there for good looks! Suppressing weeds and conserving water are not the only benefits. The right mulch enriches your soil as it breaks down and provides an awesome micro-climate for beneficial bugs, insects and fungi. Paths ​ Upgrade or install a new path through your garden. Paths are a fantastic low maintenance way to enhance your garden's appearance. * FREE QUOTES * Credit Card facilities available for Visa, Mastercard & American Express (2.5% surcharge) Download our Price Guide MOWING MADNESS Play Video MEGIFIED Garden Paths Play Video All Videos Watch Now MEGIFIED Garden Paths Play Video Share Whole Channel This Video Facebook Twitter Pinterest Tumblr Copy Link Link Copied Share Channel Info Close
