ABOUT THIS BUSINESS

The business was started by the current owners in April 2008 as a home based business. In January 2015 the business had grown sufficiently to justify moving to industrial premises from where they have operated ever since. The partnership was converted to a private company with effect from 1 July 2015.

Operations:

In the beginning, the business operated as a small, general landscaping contractor for builders and offered a turnkey package deal usually for new houses being built. This model became unsatisfactory as the business grew, largely due to the problems of poor administration of the builders and the notoriously poor payment history of small builders. The model also required constant marketing, which was both time consuming and expensive.

Therefore, in September 2012 a relationship was established with a major lawn wholesaler who were in the business of providing synthetic grass to schools, private houses, hospitals and many other projects. The wholesaler operated out of South Australia and were keen to expand their operations into other states. It was agreed that this business would handle the rollout of the New South Wales operation for 12 months on the condition that they could thereafter come back to Melbourne to handle the Victoria rollout, which was commenced in October 2013.
