Ian was amazing. I required new soil in a front patch of garden including removing the current plants and placing them back in after, this was no problem for Ian! I also needed a bunch of things trimmed and removed out the back. The turn around time for Ian to get all these things done was magnificent and price was very reasonable. Ian appeared to be very knowledgable and i will definitely use him again. I definitely recommend Ian as he is completely reliable and I will refer my friends also.

Ian was a champion. We gave him a very large cleanup job and no time to do it in. (sorry) He came through for us when we were desperate to get someone to help. A huge thankyou to Ian and his helpers.

Just got weeding done and mulch put on. I would say a very average job for 260$. Definitely not to the quality advertised on the website.

Ian Hamilton: This is a disappointing review that we probably could have avoided if we had not allowed the customer to change our agreed upon day of work. Customer was made aware in advance that work in such bad weather was less than ideal. A great reminder to give us a call in advance if you know you have visitors coming so that we can give your garden the quality and care it deserves.
Great service would most definitely recommend for people to use!

We just had our front yard flattened, a hedge planted, and some beautiful native plants planted. Ian was great and gave us all the information we needed to make decisions. Genuinely interested in getting us a good price and good service. A nice guy! Would definitely use again and recommend!

Working for and watching them was a real pleasure. They always did a thorough and precise job directly from the clients recommendations. Being employed by them was one of the best things to happen to me. Ian is always polite, well-mannered and humorous as well as willing to go the extra mile to help people out. Always thankful, Nanson

Ian came to remove some shrub stumps for me and I was most impressed with how quickly and efficiently he did the job. Many tanks.

Seems like a really nice guy, but due to his family illness and other problems it took a couple of weeks for him to do the work. Was told my gardens had been finished while I was at work, so I transferred payment in full ($400). When I came home I was dismayed to see the state of it. Grass only mowed in patches, hedge trimmed unevenly, beds still full of weeds. I didn't ask for a refund given his personal circumstances, but won't be engaging his services again.

Ian Hamilton: Regardless of our circumstances at the time we would have liked the opportunity to have make things right. If you get in touch with us we would like to discuss what we can do.
Ian is both versatile and flexible, coping well with our very difficult property (and its owners :). I endorse his approach of providing opportunities to youngsters in his area, who are generally great helpers on the job. Recommended +++

Ian and his team offer EXCELLENT value for money, beating all quotes by a mile. Work was excellent and he will be our yearly yard maintenance agent. He answers requests promptly and is a nice guy as well. I recommend to use him.

Thank you Ian for your quick response and clearing the overgrown section. Gave advice on how the section could be designed for lower maintenance. Would recommend him to anyone who is needing work on their garden.

Ian was prompt & clear in all communications. Ian's quote was fair and reasonable, and included his own suggestions to improve the look of the tidy up. We needed the work to be done urgently to put a house on the market and Ian was able to help us on this occasion. Work that he felt wasn't quite finished by our deadline he came back to finish the next week. He is polite and friendly and more importantly for us, reliable and thorough. I will be using Ian again,have no hesitation recommending him.

The job started back in January : did an intial trim prior to going on holiday for a week - asked for part payment and payment for diamond cutter - which we did - then weeks went by and after following up he came and did another trim - job still incomplete and although realise there are family illness there has been no followup and we are left with an unfinished job which is now going to back to where it originally started

Ian Hamilton: It was a shame that communication fell over with this customer. The customer had email issues which hindered a significant amount of contact. Stage one of this job was completed, but were unable unfortunately to continue.
