I first met Kym and his team over three years ago after we had finished extensive renovations. I showed him a lovely garden plan I had commissioned and the enormous quote that went with it. He was keen to help me realise the vision and understood the need to keep costs down. We went about identifying areas where savings could be made and breaking the job down into stages to help with cashflow. We also re-visted plant selection and placement as Kym was keen for me to be happy with the choices. The result is a truly beautiful garden for significantly less than I had originally been quoted and importantly, a garden in which I have personally been involved in creating.
Kym and the team continued to help with ongoing garden maintenance. This has been invaluable as neither my husband nor I are green thumbs and we needed to make sure the garden thrived. With Kym’s guidance and advice we have been able to confidently take over much of the maintenance ourselves which has been very satisfying. And after all this time, I feel I can still contact Kym for advice and help with the garden if I need to.
Needless to say Kym and the team have always been incredibly friendly, polite and hardworking throughout. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
Landscapes For Life is a highly professional, family owned business. My 950 sqm block, and never completed manicured gardens, were badly in need of a revamp for the upcoming house sale. They were very efficient and it took less than 3 weeks from quotation stage to delivery of the final product. In fact, they did such a good job that the house sold after the first weekend of home opens.
The staff met my deadlines, were friendly & polite, and on time (and if they weren’t, I would receive a text message explaining the delay). Communication was excellent and invoicing timely, thus helping to prevent any discrepancies down the track. They visited on request if I had any concerns and accommodated any changes to the scope of works easily with a minimum of fuss.
I would thoroughly recommend Landscapes For Life for your landscaping needs.
Many thanks for the great work you do at Mazenod all year round. We have many positive comments from parents, students, staff and counterparts from our brother schools over east about the presentation of our gardens around the school.
We are extremely proud of our gardens and how they have developed over the last 2 or so years. We still have a lot more work that needs to be done…and I know Kym’s mind is constantly coming up with great ideas…we will discuss all these further!
We cannot thank Kym and the team enough for the amazing work they did on the landscaping for our new house. From our first meeting with Kym he listened to our ideas, talked options through with us and made suggestions where we were unsure. For ‘garden novices’ like ourselves, we found Kym’s knowledge and advice invaluable.
The team are always hard working (working through heat and rain) responsive, and well-mannered. They were always mindful that our young son was also on site, which certainly put our minds at ease whilst the works were going on, and they were fantastic with him.
We are so thrilled with the final result – there is nothing better than sitting outside in our beautiful garden, watching our son play in the sand pit whilst the birds enjoy their surroundings too.
Thank you so much Kym, Andrina and your fabulous team!
Could you please inform Kym that we are very pleased with work that was done. Thankyou for the work undertaken and we were very impressed with work ethic of the three young men that you sent to do the job.
Your boys did a wonderful job, and I would love to use them again. I think you are so professional and I will definitely recommend you as much as possible.
“Bruce (my husband) went over to B…. Road yesterday to do a few bits & pieces – he called me to say your boys had done an amazing/fantastic job! He was very impressed (and he is not easily impressed!)
“The verge is beautiful. The kangaroo paws are stunning…Many people compliment the verge and the herb area…all thanks to you!
“Would you thank the lads for the professional job they did at Pat’s place today? She was over the moon! When she asked for the extra yard, i.e putting the left-over turf into rough patches on the front lawn, they didn’t hesitate, even though it was getting so late. They are a credit to your company!”
“…thank you for doing the garden for me at such short notice. The boys did a fabulous job as always, and it was a pleasure to have them in working in the garden.”
“I would like to thank you for a job well done. I am very, very happy with what was done an it really has given the garden a makeover and a new look.
I would also like to mention that your two guys did a great job, and a very good clean up at the end. Sadly, I find these days that many tradies do not do a good clean up and for me this is very much part of the whole job. Both young men also I found very polite and well-mannered and please pass on my praises to them.
Thanks again Kym for a job well done and I would be more than happy to recommend your company!”
Kym and the team at Landscapes for Life provide the green thumb I was not blessed with. Their care and knowledge of all things garden is a testament to the passion they feel for the environment and nature. The team are always willing to provide tips to bring out the best in my garden and their service is second to none.
I have no hesitation in recommending Landscapes for Life; and my garden is a visual testament to their hard work!
The four young gentlemen were very pleasant and completed the job to my complete satisfaction. I look forward to using your services in the future.
The garden looks lovely, healthy & well-presented for the home open on Saturday. We are very happy and grateful for the work Kym and the team completed.
Many thanks for all your help and look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
