Garden Edging

If you’re looking for a garden refresh, lawn mowing, weeding, hedging, mulching, new plants or even regular maintenance, you’re in the right place. These are just a few of the gardening services we provide in ballarat and the surrounding suburbs.

If your backyard is more of a jungle and needs a complete overhaul, we can cut back your wild plants, remove the unwanted weeds and vines, and sew new seeds to help your garden flourish. Nothing compliments an outdoor living area more than a neatly trimmed lawn. Alongside the aesthetic appeal, there are several other benefits to keeping a trim lawn.

It strengthens your grass by removing the weaker shoots and allowing the healthier ones to grow. It improves growth by ensuring that each blade receives equal exposure to sunlight and water so your lawn is bright and even. A regular trim will also help in deterring pests that can potentially damage your lawn and spread diseases.

Whipper snipping is a regularly neglected task in backyards and nature strips. This can really make or break the overall aesthetic of your lawn. Having a clean edge to a nicely mowed lawn is what makes it pop.

Whipper snippers also reach all the tough corners and edges that a lawnmower is simply too large to access. If you want to wow your family, friends and neighbours with your voluptuous lawn, get in touch with us today so we can start sprucing!

Retaining Walls

We also offer trimming and hedging services both manually and with equipment depending on the job at hand. If you’d like regular maintenance on existing trees and hedges on your property, we are happy to work out a schedule that suits your plants and your budget.

If you’re in the market for new hedges we can also help in planting hedges trees that serve as aesthetic privacy barriers from the street or neighbours. There are fast growing trees such as the Weeping Lilly Pilly that we use to create quick foliage against fences where the neighbour has renovated and can see into your backyard. If you’re looking for a more traditional style of hedge something like the Photinia Robusta may suit your needs. This plant also makes for great sculptures if you’re after some fancy garden décor.

The main thing to keep in mind when planting hedges is the maintenance required to get the desired effect. Hedges grow quickly and in all directions. They need regular trimming and guidance to take the shape you want.

Keep your garden beds looking clean and fresh with a layer of mulch. There is a huge number of benefits in mulching around your trees and plants. Some of these include: increased water retention after rain and watering, controlling weed growth and drip feeding the soil below with nutrients from the wood. The soil beneath may need re-juvinating but when applied correctly, a fresh layer of mulch can dramatically improve the productivity of your soil.
