You might just need some help with seasonal pruning or gutter cleaning or need a hand getting those weeds under control.

Lawn Mowing & Edging
If you have a small property it is more cost effective to get help with your lawns rather than buying all the equipment. We can do the job fast and cheaper than doing it yourself! Larger properties can require more commitment that eats into your family time. Get your weekends back and let us take care of your lawns and gardens for you. If you decide to take a well deserved break, rest easy knowing your lawns and garden is being cared for when you are on holidays.

Keep the jobs you enjoy and we will do the ones your don't, such as weed control, pruning and hedging, mulching and fertilizing or take a well deserved break and leave the entire lot to us.

Hedging & Pruning
Gardens are a living work in progress & require regular maintenance to ensure they look fantastic! We can put in place schedules to assist with hedges that required regular pruning or seasonal visits to cut back growth on small trees and shrubs. We will ensure that your garden looks it best all year round. We are happy to work with you to establish a maintenance plan tailored for your garden. After an initial visit & walk around the garden a planned program will be suggested & a maintenance report will be supplied on the completion of each visit.

Gutter Cleaning
A job no one likes! However it is imperative that it is done regularly to avoid water build up or overflow, and of course the fire risk in the summer heat. Maneuvering around gutters can be dangerious and you may cause damange to your gutters, roof or tiles. We have the right equipment and training to ensure your gutters and cleaned quickly and safely.

Tree Removal
Our tree service focuses on small trees (under 4 metres in height ). Seasonal pruning to encourage new growth and structure, removal of deadwood, overhanging branches, unhealthy and damaged trees, or require tree removal and trimming for aesthetic reasons, we can take care of it for you safely. We have the skills, equipment to complete the job safely and guarantee to leave every site clean and tidy

Rubbish Removal
No need worry about getting that unwanted rubbish to the tip! We can help with the removal of green and hard rubbish. Our service eliminates the hassle of trips to the local tip, ordering skips which take up space and often filled by neighbours and, importantly, lifting heavy items. Our affordable waste collection service is usually much more cost effective than hiring a rubbish skip, and you don’t have to load the rubbish yourself, we do all the work for you.
