Customer Feedback

What our customers are
saying about us.

Chris was recommended to us when we needed advice on how to achieve the lawn we wanted. He was very knowledgeable and listened to our ideas as well as making suggestions on options we could consider. We decided to get instant lawn and he researched availability and options for us was able to source the best quality lawn. He also recommended a watering system that will care for all our garden needs. In short, he did exactly what he said he would, in the time frame agreed. He went above and beyond to accommodate us. You won’t find a more genuine nice guy. We are stoked with the result.

Chris and Liza Cox-Hancy, Kinloch

Jude and I engaged Chris from Lawn Guru as we had heard from our neighbors of the good work he had done at their places. We had a new build underway and Chris helped us understand what layout and shaping would work well for our site, and developed a suggested landscape plan with base plantings. Chris organized everything for us, including working with our builder to coordinate when irrigation piping should be laid before concrete driveway installed. Chris secured large rocks and placed these around our section including shaping the land and spreading with topsoil, bark, river stones, then planting and laying turf. Chris is an amazingly hard worker who will work under challenging climate conditions with energy and a smile on his face. He has access to an array of landscaping equipment and can operate most of this himself. Overall Chris was great to deal with. He is very knowledgeable and willing to do any work from design to landscaping and planting, to produce an optimal outcome for his client. I look forward to continuing to avail myself of his services to ensure our lawns and gardens are kept in optimal condition.

Cheers Ray

We engaged Chris the Lawn Guru to design and carry out our landscaping at our new home on The Fairways Kinloch. The covenants on The Fairways require a well-designed landscaping plan, as Chris used to be the head green keeper on the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course here, it made sense to use him.
We weren’t disappointed, Chris did a magnificent job. From interpreting our ideas, sourcing plants like hardy grasses, picking up our shrubs that were in store, then delivering and installing them. He built a spectacular rockery laying weed mat to minimize future weeding. True to his business name he prepared, laid and now maintains our magnificent lawn, that is the envy of our street.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Chris “The Lawn Guru” for all your gardening needs.
