Garden Maintenance

Garden Maintenance Services

What sets us apart from the rest is our ability to develop a gardening program which incorporates all factors of gardening to get the best from your garden. 

While weeding and pruning your garden our trained professionals are assessing your garden for pests and diseases and will start to develop a program to remove them. 

Assessment of all trees and shrubs will be given for pruning feeding and crop development where necessary and programmed in for the right time of year to maximise the benefit.

Lawn mowing & edging will be done while looking for weed and clover infestations and creating a plan for their eradication. Lawn care and development is also something we love to do. Through aeration, top dressing, over sowing and feeding we can bring your lawn up to the best it can possibly be.

With our foolproof job sheet system every maintenance visit is recorded and our data base system develops a customised garden maintenance schedule for your garden.

We believe our system is so good we will give you 6 months free gardening* if you believe we haven’t improved your garden.

*based on 12 months of ABS service and following the program we set.

Horticultural Knowledge

As a professional and experienced team, ABS is able to assist you in all facets of your horticultural requirements. We pride ourselves in designing a landscape that you will enjoy, as well as choosing the right plants for the aspect and climate conditions of your garden.

If your garden requires a make over or rejuvination ABS can soil test for pH and nutrient levels and give you information as to fertilisation requirements. We can also recommend water requirements for your plants and turf, check for any pests and diseases your plants may have and suggest control methods to combat these problems. This will allow you to enjoy the full potential of your newly landscaped garden.

Sustainable Landscaping

In the current climate of Melbourne’s water restrictions and drought ABS has moved with the times creating landscapes that can cope with the new conditions.

The use of drought tolerant plants & turf, installation of drip line irrigation and creating microclimates that will give a variety of plants a chance to flourish have allowed us to create gardens that can cope with today’s environment.
