TESTIMONIALS

We engaged Marty to undertake a huge mulching job at our house. He was easy to contact, consulted with us on our needs and provided an honest and competitive estimate for the work. He sourced all materials making the job hassle free for us and completed the mammoth task in a day solo.
We would unhesitatingly recommend him for any garden job large or small.

Big Friendly Gardener? More like Big Friendly Godsend! Marty and his crew have done an amazing job with our garden, which needed a lot of TLC. From our initial consultation to getting started, Marty has been easy and pleasant to deal with. Marty sends photo updates about what they have been up to in the garden, which is great when I am interstate. Marty has taken out dead trees, reshaped some out of control citrus bushes, made our front yard presentable again plus much more! I cannot recommend Marty and his crew enough, they are your garden’s future best pal.

Great job. Great communicator. Great social conscience. Great bloke
Marty is a great guy. He communicates very well and turns up when he says he will. He always stays to finish the job to the point where I tell him to go home to his family.
He’s got a great social conscience and employs people with special abilities.
Get the job done right the first time and contact Marty for your garden needs.

Having Marty look after our garden has been a real find for us. He is reliable, hardworking, and very considerate. He also follows our philosophy of using no chemicals in the garden, so you can be sure that your plants and pets are in safe hands.

I have an exceptionally large block, with a "proper garden" full of rare plants - a bit too much for one person to handle. With Marty's invaluable help and hard work, it has transformed from its former overgrown and unkempt status, and I am looking forward to the next stages in its development. Marty is thoroughly reliable, honest, knowledgeable, proactive, and personable, and is not reluctant to take on tasks which made other putative gardeners blench. I highly recommend Marty!

What I really appreciate with BFG and Sun is the communication with the client. Great customer service, grass and edges are cut sharp and precise and the trimmings collected - every time.

Marty Moss is an absolute delight to work with. He is highly professional, extremely hard-working, environmentally-aware, good-natured and willing to discuss tasks and solutions to gardening issues. He installed a watering system that is easy to operate in our established garden, without damaging existing plants. His charges are very reasonable, and he is happy to follow up on work he has undertaken. I strongly recommend him to anyone wanting a quality job.

BFG and Sun have helped me to take my garden from a stress to a sanctuary. The team do a great job taking care of the everyday maintenance jobs, and Marty's a huge help with bigger projects. My garden would be a sad dust bowl without them.

Marty is so great to work with. He arrives on time (every time), does a really neat job with our epic photonia hedge, and is organised and efficient. Highly recommend!

I contacted BFG and Sun to assist with  my overgrown garden. I found Marty and his team to be courteous, reliable and knowledgeable.  They did a fabulous job trimming the hedge including providing advice on when to prune, so as to not to stress the plants and on their aftercare.
