HGG Testimonials“Joe from Hungry Gecko Gardens was definitely the right choice for us! We had two other garden consults but Joe’s advice on preparation, plant list and garden plan worked for us, all planted now – time to sit back and watch it grow!”
– Lee, Carina

“My wife and I had always dreamed of having a beautiful native garden to complement our newly built house, and while searching the internet for a native plant expert in the Brisbane area we found Hungry Gecko Gardens. We were impressed by the testimonials and gallery images on the site and arranged to meet with Joe to go through ideas for the plan. Joe was very knowledgeable in the species of plants that would both grow in our area and complement the house design. The end result is a beautiful garden that is a pleasure to look at and a talking point for those coming to our door. We would recommend Hungry Gecko Gardens to anyone wishing to establish a native garden in their own backyard.”
– Tim and Rachael, Kenmore

“We are very thankful to Joe for a complete transformation of our front garden from a very old terraced garden bounded by brick walls to a magnificent natural looking one comprising granite boulders, native bushes, stepping stones and pathways. We were impressed with his ideas and vision which were both creative and practical. The work was completed in a timely fashion and within our agreed budget. The garden is flourishing and becoming even more impressive. We would highly recommend Joe to our friends and others.”
– Rob and Cathy, Mansfield

“We are so happy we found Joe to do our garden. He has completely transformed our garden and it is now a space our whole family enjoys. The raised vegetable beds, with worm farms and herb gardens are doing really well, and I am able to pick what I want for dinner from right outside my kitchen door. As well, all the native flowering plants in the garden make it a beautiful space. Joe worked with what was already there to make the most of the garden at a minimal cost. I would highly recommend him to anyone.”
– Helen and Brian, The Gap

“We initially contacted Joe because we had heard that he was a natives expert. He came up with a beautiful design for our back garden and executed his design with great care. Joe has been coming each month now for the last year to help us grow our new garden into the wonderful space it has now become. Joe has always been friendly, timely and knowledgeable and we would highly recommend him. Thanks to Joe we have a lovely outdoor area that our children can explore and enjoy everyday.”
– Sarah and Steven, The Gap

“The building of a large retaining wall on our property created new (and quite unattractive) areas for garden development. Joe has been working with us over the last several months on various projects – rock garden, screening garden and edible garden, and more recently helping us with our creek bank regeneration. We have been very impressed with and grateful for his vision, knowledge, reliability and work ethic. He has at all times been willing to work with us, both in the design and implementation of various projects. We will certainly be asking him to help us with any future projects, and are very happy to recommend his services.”
– Chris and Andrew, Ashgrove

“Thanks again for all your work! I’m spending a lot more time outside now just because I want to see the final job!”
– Damian, McDowall

“Joe built a beautiful raised garden bed for me. It was a very awkward area to work in and he completed the work as planned. We also put a wire fence behind the raised garden bed and along the fence line so I can grow vines there. He also took out a medium sized tree and did some fine pruning on some of the other trees. The worm farms Joe put in are doing well. Everything was done to quote and it was a fair price. Joe is mindful of what you would like and doesn’t force his own ideas or try to sell you more than what you budgeted for. I’m very happy to recommend Joe.”
– Joanne, The Gap

“Joe was recommended to me by a colleague, so I arranged for him to come and give a quote. The garden was a total mess but Joe was not deterred at all – he had several good ideas about what could be done, what could be easily maintained, and provided different budget options. We hired him for the job and he worked so hard for days until the garden was transformed. It looks beautiful now and by spring I expect it will be in full bloom, and I can’t wait for that. I highly recommend Joe – he has great knowledge and enjoyment of his work and our lovely new garden shows this.”
– Jen, Dutton Park

“I’m very happy with the job I had done by Joe from Hungry Gecko Gardens. The quote was very reasonable and the job was done to quote. Joe was very professional, flexible and was willing to do what was needed to get the job done. I am very satisfied with the landscaping / gardening that Hungry Gecko Gardens did for me and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services to anyone… Thanks Joe.”
– Rob, The Gap

“I was very impressed with the effort Joe put into the garden and the attention to detail.”
