Mark Cossens

Hi, I'm Mark Cossens, your local Garden Services, Maintenance & Lawn Mowing franchisee in the Lavington area.

I have been a V.I.P. franchisee since 2018. The thing I enjoy about owning my own V.I.P. franchise is the independence of being a franchisee, with the support and structure from the Franchisor.

I'm looking forward to a career helping people maintain their homes in Lavington and Albury.

Hedge Trimming

A well pruned hedge is a source of pride for your home. Many new homes are using hedges to border their front yards or to create privacy in their back yards. Lavington is no exception. Big or small, if you need hedging tidied I'm your man.

I would like to thank Mark for being our gardener. 
I've had a lot of experience with different gardeners.

I've never had one, as thorough, punctual, experienced, and passionate about his work.

Mark takes pride in not only cleaning up my entire garden, but also taking my rubbish away.

Getting the gardens to a high standard of looking manicured and doing so many other unexpected jobs that needed to be done - in such a short time!!

Mark is extremely friendly, approachable and attentive to what I want he far exceeded any expectations I had of gardener.

I'll be keeping Mark on permanently, to maintain my place, due to his high standard of looking after my yards .

I can't not recommend his service highly enough to anyone who is looking for gardener.

I guarantee that will leave you excited about your gardens as I am.

He is true professional at his job yet a humble person who is easy to get along with and to interact with.

Thank you Mark for the outstanding job, you have done !!!

I'm very excited to be able to enjoy and use my yards since you have come and overhauled them.

Also, I am extremely grateful for all your hard work and attention to every detail of my yards.

You definitely are a true professional and really care on level I've never experienced in the past about my gardens.

Mark was great to deal with, same day call back and onsite inspection. A few days later, as scheduled, Mark arrived and tackled a very overgrown garden with ease, he even went the extra mile to spray a stubborn creeper so we wouldn't have issues in the future and came back to check that it had worked. Great communication and follow up. Would definitely recommend for any one-off or ongoing garden jobs.

Great job Mark, thankyou!
