    "Chris & his team are easily the best around.

    They have been doing my lawns for a long time. Little extra bits were never an issue for them, neither was adding more ground.

    They have been looking after my 'jungle' now as well & my 'jungle' in now open spaces & looking wonderful. No issues with planting plants for me nor with the team spreading bark when I get it.

    Price is excellent, indeed I really expected to pay more. They visit regularly & the team, no mater which 2 are visiting are knowledgeable & so easy to deal with. I highly recommend Chris & his team from Emerald Lawns. Keep up the excellent work guys n gals & thank you."

    "Very poor service. They left my lawns after 9 months in a worse state than when I engaged them. They did no weed control, reseeding or fertilizing, despite being hired for lawn maintenance, not to cut the heads off the weeds occasionally. As for mowing, they did an average cutting job, no edging and didn't reach under the trampoline. Disappointed, and now left with a bigger restoration job than if I hadn't engaged them. "

    "This company is so very easy to deal with, brilliantly priced and reliable. The last job at my house was done at very short notice, lawns well mown, edges tidied and the piles of dead leaves from my magnolia trees taken away.

    "Chris is so friendly and helpful. He responded so quickly to my quote request. The cost was so affordable for what would have been a huge job for me. Chris & his team were happy friendly guys who promptly completed the job. What was an unruly overgrown bank they turned into a more beautiful, tidy & usable space than I could have ever imagined. I am delighted and so appreciative. "

    "After dealing with a unreliable yet well known lawn mowing service who never did half of what I asked, twice, I decided to go with a more local service who had good reviews on their website. I  called on a Wednesday, Chris arrived in 10mins to give a quote, told him what I wanted done and he had all the right answers, but after my last service I wasn't holding much hope. Chris let me know they were very busy and might not get it done by the end of the week, which was fine with me. Expecting my lawns to be done the following week I went to my parents house for a few days. Arrived home Saturday morning and found a beautiful clean and tidy cut lawn, bushes removed and trees trimmed back, everything I had asked, done! I am so impressed with the work Chris and his team have done.  And the price was well under what I expected, but worth every cent!

    Thank you so much guys, I'm so grateful for the work you did, I absolutely love it!!!

    "My lawn has been getting worse ever since I started using this company. They introduced hydrocotyle weed which has taken over the lawn and killed some areas by mowing too close, despite my raising this. Lawn is generally in a poor state now. "

    "Absolutely brilliant work! Extremely well priced and great value for money. It did take a couple of weeks for them to come (they are busy!) but when they did, they were flexible, hard working, clean and tidy and did an excellent job. We got two quotes for the work we had done....the price difference was ridiculous and I did wonder if these guys would do a good job because the price was so reasonable, but they were excellent. We had three areas of drainage done in our new garden, very high hedges trimmed, two more hedged tidied and a paved path laid. The garden is now completely dry and they brought their own drainage equipment. They are coming back!"

    "I asked Chris to do a section tidy up & lawn mow for the final week before my house was sold. Wow! When I got home I was amazed at what a thorough and professional job he had done! The property looked very tidy, very professionally done, and all green waste was removed. I would absolutely recommend using Chris, he was quick to make contact, polite, efficient, and did a fantastic job. Will definitely use him for any further section work!"

    "I'm really, really happy with the job Chris did on my wildly overgrown and dog-poopy garden! Not only did he mow the lawns, pull out the weeds and take away all the debris, he got rid of the dog-poop as well! And for a price I was more than happy to pay. I'm so impressed I'll be asking him to maintain my place from now on. Cheers, Chris!"

    "I had come across this company whilst walking along the street and noticed their service vehicle. I had asked one of the workers if someone could get in touch with me as I required some work to be done.
    The job required was for an estate and as I lived out of town it was important that contact was made promptly before I headed back to Auckland. Chris was fantastic and always gave me a prompt reply to any questions I had via email and he also emailed pics of the work completed which was invaluable. We never met face to face but he clearly followed instructions and understood the sensitive situation. I would highly recommend Emerald Lawns as they were price competitive and professional

    "About 2 years ago when I realised a \'cowboy\' lawnmowing service had ruined my lawn (nothing but moss and weeds) I got Emerald Lawns to completely replace my front lawn and oversow my back lawn. Marvellous result. Lovely lawns! When some/new weeds started to appear again they also did a good job of spraying for weeds. (some delay because of weather)

    I have kept them on as a f\'nightly lawn service. They continue to do a wonderful job of caring for my lawns. All on a difficult section - up a path and then narrow access to back lawn. I have just retired and this service is one I will keep on until......forever!

    As a retirement present the guys did an extra bit of weed eating this week - cleared out the overgrown weeds from a brick patio area! Looks great. Now I just have to spray the last of the weeds, and then tidy up all the overgrown pots. But that\'s given me a head start with project garden renewal! Thanks Guys!
