Garden Makeover Ilkley

The team have been at it again…

This time we’ve been at Ilkley for three days for a complete garden cleanup. Many parts of the property were inaccessible, with the owner saying they haven’t visited certain sections of their yard for nearly 30 years.

It’s hard to describe how thick and knarly the growth was. It was almost impossible to get anywhere without getting tangled up or pricked by some nasty weed. But we got there, and the home owner was surprised saying, “the property is now better than what it was 30 years ago”. Here’s just some of what we were able to achieve…

  • Removal of lantana
  • Removal of blackberries
  • Removal of elephant grass
  • Removal of bamboo
  • Removal and chopping of trees
  • Brush cutting and cleaning up
  • Mulching of weeds
  • Wood chipping

I don’t think the photos really do it justice (I’m far from an expert photographer) but you should get an idea of how much we’ve been able to transform this Ilkley property. The home owner is now looking forward to planting some native trees and being able to maintain the property with his own little ride-on mower. We’re hoping to be able to come back and give the property some finishing touches and helping with a complete transformation.

If you’re in the Eudlo or Ilkley area (or anywhere on the Sunshine Coast for that matter) and you have an overgrown or out-of-control property issue then we’d like to help you. We’re doing more and more of this kind of thing around town and have the machines and men to do the job. And finally, you might be surprised at how affordable this work can be, please contact us and we’ll pop over right away and give you a free appraisal.

The Elephant Grass was thick, wet and heavy, but we were able to clear it (see more pics below)

Our little machine is a marvel. It might be the cheapest option to clear this kind of thick growth - otherwise you're looking at heavy machinery.

We now have room the breath. It's opened right up, you'll almost get grass to grow here now

All finished. This area will also become garden lawn - a whole lot better from when we started.
