Q: How much does a typical lawn/garden service cost?
A: It is difficult to estimate how much your lawn/garden will cost, as no two homes and their lawn/gardens are ever the same. Give us a call, and we can attend your home promptly to give you a free, no obligation quote.
Q: What do you do with garden waste?
A: There are a few things we can do with your garden waste, we can put all your lawn and garden clippings into your green waste bin (This is recommended), we can mulch your lawn clippings back into your lawn or alternatively we can collect all the waste and transport it to the tip for additional costs.
Q: Do you charge per hour or a fixed price?
A: For lawn mowing we charge an hourly rate for the first visit, this will then become the fixed price everytime after, so you know exactly what you are paying for each visit. For larger gardening jobs we charge a fixed price, or for smaller jobs where we are doing 1-2 hours each visit we can charge an hourly rate. Irrigation and pressure cleaning are charged depending on the size of the job and will be quoted before hand.
For strata companies we offer fixed monthly pricing year round and can include all of the lawn mowing, garden maintenance and cleaning required in this one monthly price.
Q: How often do I need to have my lawn mowed?
A: This depends on your type of grass and a number of other factors, but as a typical guide we suggest every 2 weeks in summer, every 3 weeks in spring and autumn and every 4 weeks in winter.
Q: How often do I need to have my hedging done?
A: Most are done on a quarterly basis, but often don’t need doing through winter, but depends on the type of hedge.
Q: How do you weed my garden?
A: For garden beds the most effective way is to hand weed the larger and hardier weeds, poison the smaller grassier types using Glyphosate, which is very affective but is not long lasting so won’t damage the soil and then apply a mulch such as pine bark mulch to help prevent the weeds growing back. For the lawn we recommend using a good quality weed 'n feed at least 3 times a year for controlling bindi and clover etc, we can do all of this for you, and usually charge the same price as your regular lawn mowing/gardening plus costs.
Q: Do you offer tree loping?
A: We can do smaller trees, up to about 4 meters high, as long as there is no risk of the tree falling and damaging property. You will find we charge a fraction of the price of a tree lopper.
Q: Do I need to fertilise my lawn?
A: We recommend fertilising your lawn with a slow release fertiliser, such as Scott’s Lawn Builder, 2 to 3 times per year. Scott’s also have products with added weed killer or added wetting agent, which can be beneficial to your lawn. We can do this for you, and usually charge the same price as your regular lawn mowing plus costs.
