Garden Maintenance in Spring

While Autumn is the time to feed the lawn, Winter is the time to prepare and protect your garden. These colder months are a great time to remove weeds and clean up garden beds from leaves and old flowers that are not doing so well.

Replacing the soil and topping up the mulches at this time of year will help to retain the moisture in the soil. Create an abundance of large shoots by selectively pruning plants and shrubs. With a careful and considered approach to Winter, your garden will repay you with gorgeous blooms come Spring.

With over 20 years of experience in garden maintenance in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, The Herbivore offers the following services to keep your property looking its very best in this dynamic season:

We highly recommend The Herbivore team. Their services are exceptional and extremely professional. We have had our garden maintained in Hawthorn for several years on a regular basis including hedging, pruning, laying of instant turf, installation of irrigation systems, removal of overgrown strelitzias, and management of a neighbour’s bamboo along our fence line. Rob Mackaway of Herbivore has often out of his way to help us with additional small jobs that we find too difficult. His willingness to help, attention to detail, and his friendly demeanour is outstanding as is the quality of his work.

Jacqui & Kim, Hawthorn

We have been dealing with Rob and his team for a couple of years now and right from the start we felt very comfortable with the knowledge they had on all aspects of our garden and how to treat our various plants, hedges and shrubs. Sometimes knowing what not to do is as important as knowing what to do and having that expertise at hand is very comforting. Whether it is Rob himself or one of his team members, they have always communicated well the work that is to be undertaken and have then followed through to a high standard.

Andrew Walsh, Melbourne

The Herbivore has been looking after our gardens for us for the last five years. Our gardens at Our Lady of Victories Basilica, Camberwell play host to many wedding photos and family groups after weddings, baptisms and Sunday gatherings. The garden is cleverly planted to ensure year round colour and Rob and his team are always responsive to any requests we might have. No job is too small or too large. I now have The Herbivore looking after a number of our Church properties. I have no problem in recommending The Herbivore.
