The Beauty of Nature
At Your Local Gardener, we understand that the colours and shapes seen in nature are aesthetically pleasing. However, we see the most beauty in nature in its cohesiveness. There are a plethora of functional plants that allow nature to seamlessly coexist.
Although functional plants are often imagined as edible, medicinal, or having useful materials, Your Local Gardener understands that there is much more to functionality than the uses garnered by humans. One of the most amazing systems within nature is the cycle of nutrients, and water. Certain plants improve soil and water retention. Other plants distract pests from other, weaker plants. Other plants can provide shade, or mulch for other plants.
At Your Local Gardener, we have studied these kinds of systems and, although we always ensure our gardens are aesthetically pleasing, we also use natural systems in order to create gardens that are cohesive with their surroundings and within themselves.
Independence of Living
At Your Local Gardener, we believe independence is empowering. We understand that being able to provide your family or household with free herbs may not seem like the most pressing matter in your life. But we also believe that being able to provide anything to the ones you love gives an immense feeling of satisfaction.
Knowing that you can grow what you eat, and are no longer at the whim of closing times and price changes when you want to purchase some fresh food, is one of the most satisfying feelings one can have. These kind of senses of accomplishment and satisfaction allows people to feel independent and stronger as people.

I have been using 'Your Local Gardener' service for almost a year now. I have an agreement with Ethan to come around and do work when ever he thinks it is appropriate, this is a big help to me as I don't need to think about it.
He is very honest and completes yard work usually about once a month. The yard is always left clean and tidy. He is very well priced for the service that is provided.
Nicholas, Buderim - November 2017
Arrived on time, did a great job, and very reasonable prices considering our lawn is on a hill and a little bit awkward to mow. Would definitely recommend.
Tarryn, Buderim - November 2017
Thank you for the amazing yards..! They look great!

I would recommend this gardening service to whoever needs their lawns and gardens maintained. Jack was great with my two and a half year old and a really nice guy. He mowed my lawns as well as taking away all of the clippings. He did a fantastic job for a very competitive price (lowest bidder I received). I will be using this service monthly! Highly reccomend!!
