Lawn Maintenance

Your home deserves a beautiful lawn without you making extra effort every weekend.

Give V.I.P. a call on 13 26 13 to organise looking after your lawn on a regular basis.

I will always consult you to ensure that the lawns are cut the way you want.

A typical lawn maintenance job involves mowing, edging, weeding and fertilising.


Garden Maintenance

Your garden needs to be a source of pride for your home.

A typical garden maintenance program includes pruning, mulching, triming, weeding and fertilising.

Garden clean ups are a necessity, however, not enjoyable. let me complete this for you.

Mulching is important for a healthy garden, I only use pine mulch which termites donnot eat.

I also consult with you regarding plant selection and the goals of your garden.


Wooden or metal, I can remove the old fence and install a new fence with minimal disruptions.


Full gutters can be a fire risk in the hotter months and a flood risk whenever it rains.

If you notice your gutters are a bit full, give V.I.P. a call on 13 26 13.


Hedge Trimming

A well pruned hedge is a source of pride for your home. There is a great pleasure in looking down the line of a perfectly straight, well trimmed hedge.

If you have a tall hedge along your boundary or individual trees, I have the tools and the skills required to make your hedge look fantastic.


Rubbish Removal

As you would expect I remove the clippings and trimmings that I create, but if you have completed a clean up on the weekend, give V.I.P. a call and I'll be able to remove the rubbish for you.

One less thing to worry about!


Tree Work

If you have a tree that has got a little bit too enthusiastic with it's growth - give V.I.P. a call. I can do the minor trimming and looping required to make the tree behave itself.


Ride on Mower

I have a ride on mower allowing me to mow large areas of lawn or turf. 


Hedging and Pruning

A well maintained hedge and beautifully pruned trees and bushes add a great sense of pride to your home. Good pruning adds to the health of the trees and bushes - let me do it for you.


Scarifying a Specialty!

Scarifying (called vertimowing in WA)  is the process of removing an excess build up of thatch on your lawn.

Lawn thatch is the build up of dead stolons (runners) on top of the soil.

As lawns continue to grow and regenerate new stolons, the old stolons will die off underneath the new growth. Over a period of time these dead stolons continue to build up into a thicker mat.

An ugly appearance, and increasing poor health from lack of nutrients and water make lawn scarifying vital in the continuing health of your lawn.

When properly completed, the scarifying process will return a more level appearance to the lawn, as well as leaving a far more beautiful finish after mowing.
