The Lawn Mower has been mowing Halswell Quarry Park (60ha) since 2009. He competed with two large companies GSL & CityCare and won the contract to mow the reserve due to two distinct advantages he has over the competition; excellent customer service and speed of cut. They are always able to come at the drop of a hat, is incredibly focused on quality and his mowers allow a faster cut on rough grounds. I recommend The Lawn Mower to anyone wanting a professional job done with that personal touch.

Waterloo Business Park is a 114ha commercial subdivision in Christchurch. The Lawn Mower and team have been mowing, spraying and trimming our vacant lots and landscaped areas for the past year and we are extremely happy with their work. They are able to maintain a high quality presentation in a cost effective manner. We would highly recommend The Lawn Mower to others and look forward to his continued service at Waterloo.

Lissa Birse Assistant Development Manager

The Lawn Mower has provided an excellent mowing service. They mows the sides of our long driveway regularly, and when they say they will. There prices are fair and mowing is of a good standard. We have a small shop on our rural property and his keeping the grass on our entrance and driveway down has meant that the business is always well-presented for visitors and customers.
