Owned and operated by Matt Ellery.

A former scientist and transportation planner, Matt has always had an underlying desire to work in the outdoors undertaking gardening and maintenance activities that he has always enjoyed. While computer programs and spreadsheets may not get your jobs done, Matt's wealth of knowledge, attention to detail, accuracy, experience, life skills and shear love of the work will. From lawn mowing and gardening jobs while at school, factory maintenance duties in university holidays, to many years of home and rental property ownership, there isn't much Matt hasn't done around a house (even the ironing!). Matt is also an active member of BNI Avenues chapter business networking group and Bishopdale-Burnside Rotary Club.

Carpenter Stephen Nelson.

Stephen also has past experience in the hospitality industry working at Copthorne Hotel up until the time of the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes which closed the hotel down. His interests are joinery, books, and spending time with family.
