Hi Greg, hope you and the business are going well. Our backyard is now finished. Everyone who visits just says "wow!". It looks amazing, so thanks again for all your hard work. The chickens (Shadow, Freckles & Walnut) are eating out of our hands now and we have been giving them some free range time on the weekends (which they love). We are very happy with all your hard work on the chook house, chook run, veggie beds and fruit tree cage and cannot thank you enough. Also the path looks amazing.
Marilyn - Ashburton
Hi Greg, thank you for your great customer service - we have posted photos on Facebook and given you a plug. Many thanks again.
Glenda - Coldstream
Hi Greg & Rebecca, we just wanted to thank you for our chooks that we bought from you last Saturday. The girls and ladies had a week to meet through the wire and we transferred the newbies (Chia & Blanche!) in with our other 2 on Friday night with no issues.
Hi Greg, we are loving the experience of caring for the Cochins that you raised for us. They have a lovely existence in our backyard and we really appreciate their inquisitive and friendly nature. Thank you!
Liz - Ivanhoe
Thanks Greg, we are SO happy with the chicken house, run & wood shed. I'll be in touch in spring re some additional chickens.
Sarah - Diamond Creek
Hi Greg, thanks so much for my new front fence, I love it, it looks gorgeous.
Dani - Kalorama
Hi Greg, the new chookies have settled in well and the older ones are much happier. Thank you for the beautiful work you did and for your sound advice on the care and welfare of the chooks - we appreciate this. The whole chook house & run that you built looks fantastic.
Anne-Marie - Mt Dandenong
Hi Greg, we picked up 6 cross breeds on the 30th July 2016 and just wanted to pass on that we have had chooks for over 35 years and these would be the most laid back friendly lot we have ever had and they started laying in 4 days.
Vic & Carloyn - Lilydale
Greg, the vegetable garden enclosures are wonderful, thank you, a pleasure to go and tend to them. The big one now has strawberry pots on the walls, hanging basket of tomatoes, and pots of vegies in the corners, a real garden room. Thanks.
Elaine - Cottlesbridge
Greg, just to repeat- much thanks from us both for your splendid help yesterday. Another year that we can continue the yummy garden happy growing, defying our age and wear!
Lyn - Kangaroo Ground
A great many thanks for your work and company yesterday. The whole family are thrilled with the new veg bed - plan is to plant our winter veg this weekend with the boys - getting some seedlings with them after school today. We'll be in touch soon -re chook coops.
Ned - Diamond Creek
Thanks Greg for your work building our ironbark veggie beds, they look great.
Simon - Thornbury
Thank you very much for your fantastic work building the chook house. We are very appreciative of what you have created for us and love it.
Diane - Mitcham
Greg, the vegetable beds look great. The staff are very happy and I'm sure when kinder comes back from holidays the kids will be loving planting and playing.
Kindergarten - Bulleen
Dear Greg, the garden has worked an absolute treat! The produce has been amazing. Boxes of tomatoes, and everything else. Currently picking beautiful eggplant and the pumpkins, which I planted in the berry patch for this year, have gone bezerk. It is such a success and makes gardening so easy and successful. So thanks Greg, I appreciate what you have made. Also the chookhouse has coped well with the fox trying to dig its way in and the girls are very happy in their lovely house. I get three beautiful eggs mostly every day.
Ruth - Panton Hill
Hi Greg, just to let you know that the two girls I picked up last Saturday are going well and are laying well. There was a bit of angst initially with a little bit of pecking from our existing Anconas however, that seems to have settled down and they are part of the mob. Great chooks. Thanks again.
Kevin - Drouin
Dear Greg, on behalf of Gina & myself we wish to thank you sincerely with our heartfelt thanks for your friendliness, honesty & reliability in carrying out what you say. It's hard to find good trades people these days and was very pleased when Gina came up with you. We have no hesitations in recommending you to others. Plus our friends are impressed with the workmanship and Gina has put many pictures on her different blog sites and also gets a lot of positive feedback. Many thanks again Greg for a job well done.
Ken & Gina - Eltham
Hi Greg, the CAT community gardens looks fantastic. Thank you for the professional work.
Caterpillar - Tullamarine
I am so thrilled with the beds, thank you so much! We have planted some vegies already and the kids are very excited.
Claire - Eltham North
Thanks you so much it looks fantastic!! It was so nice to see when I came home. I've already sent photos to my friends and they can't believe how good it is!
Carloyn - Ringwood East
Just wanted you to know that the girls are enjoying their new home and have learnt how to use their roosting perches. Many thanks for a very functional and sturdy shed which also checks the aesthetic box too. I appreciated the ease of the process with which we accomplished the changeover from the old house to the new one. I will certainly recommend Yummy Gardens to others in the future.
Vicky - Ivanhoe
Thank you for your help, support, information and advice provided.... very much appreciated. Once again, thank you - you have done a great job!
Thanks for the super gardens beds.
Matt - Glen iris
Am so enjoying the vege patch. It makes everything so easy. Thanks for doing such a terrific job. Am gradually getting it planted out and look forward to a bountiful crop this year.
Ruth - Panton Hill
We're absolutely stoked with the chook house - thanks! Again, thanks, it's awesome.
Angus - Hurstbridge
Thanks again Greg. Definitely a most superior chook house compared with the previous structure
Amy - Ivanhoe
Hi Greg, very happy with the chook house.
Craig - Montmorency
Hi Greg, I am thrilled with the work, it looks fantastic.
Lee - Greensborough
Hi Greg, the vegie beds look great. Thank you for your assistance.
Marlene - Doncaster East
Dear Greg, I've been meaning to thank you but I've been so busy having fun with the chooks! We just love our chookshed and veggie gardens. In the 8 months since you designed & built them we've had delicious eggs every day, the veggies are all going nuts & we are really happy with everything. You managed to transform 2m x 18m of completely barren space into an incredibly productive little garden and home for the chooks. Thanks again for filling the veggie beds with such good quality compost - I've never grown such delicious & abundant veggies. We have had no issues with mice as the shed is so well built, the chooks have spent the winter very warm & dry & it has been great to be able to let them out each day since you sectioned off the veggie garden with the extra gate. No issues with foxes either as we've left the radio on when they are out as you suggested. The external access laying boxes are excellent too as we can even ask chook phobic friends to collect the eggs if we're away! You can have chooks in Kew. Cheers & thanks again.
Gerardine & Jonathan - Kew
Greg, thanks so much for your work today. We are so happy with the garden bed. I have been singing your praises on Facebook. Lovely to meet you and thanks again.
Ingrid - Preston
Hi Greg, we are very happy with our garden bed & the veggies are growing very well.
Sue - Brighton
Thanks for your lovely work again. It all looks great. Can't wait to get some veggies in the front.
Michelle & Claire - Coburg
Thanks Greg for the work you did setting up my veggie beds and pond. The whole area looks great, thanks so much, brilliant job as always.
Dani - Wantirna South
Thank you so much Greg for the great work you did on the loft.
Adam - Wallan
We recently purchased 3 chooks from you. Our new girls are lovely and have fitted in wonderfully. They are very healthy and good natured birds.
Simon & Janette - Heidelberg
Thank you so much for the coop, you did an amazing job. It is so well made and I feel like my girls are so safe. Thanks as well for all you advice, it has made things a lot easier given I've never had chickens before. I think we're going to have many happy years together!
Dani - Wantirna South
We love our new chook enclosure, you've done a fantastic job. The automatic solar door works perfectly.
Andre & Susan - Eltham
Thank you so much for your work. It's a super chook house that a in month of Sundays we would not have created had we attempted it all ourselves. Looks terrific.
Jane - Limestone
Thanks very much for your efforts. The chook house is fantastic and the chooks have kept us very entertained the last few days.
Chris - Eltham
Thanks for making such a wonderful chook house and outdoor run. The chooks are settling in well and giving us lots of enjoyment.
Fiona - Eltham
We are entirely happy with our veggie beds. Thank you for the great job and attention to detail in their construction on that wild and windy day.
Lyn - Kangaroo Ground
Thanks for your time today, our 2 lovely new hens have had a lovely time exploring their new home. They are such lovely social chooks (previous point of lay hens we have got have been so scared when we got them home, yours are so relaxed, obviously used to people/animals). Thought you might like to know you now have 2 much loved hens names after you "Greg & Rebecca". Thanks again
Karyn, Scott, Cameron, Holly & Lara - Ferntree Gully
Hi Greg, hope all is well. Thank you again for such an amazing hen house and run for my girls. They are such happy girls which love to talk. Every time they see us, they run over as fast as lightening, it's so funny. As they think another treat is coming. My Dad has become very attached to them also and he often hangs out with them while they are let out for a couple hours most days. My dog doesn't seem bothered by them which is great. They are all laying beautiful yummy eggs!
Thanks for everything, the chook house and run are awesome. Very happy with it.
Darren - Riddels Creek
Hi Greg, the girls are happy in their new house, which looks very fine in my garden. Thank you.
Helen - Fitzroy
Thanks for the beautiful garden bed. It's already planted up!
Miyuki - Brunswick
Thanks again for all the work you've done on the chook house and compost bins. You've done a great job and it's been great to have you around. We've had several people admiring your work and I'm so glad we got you to do it instead of muddling our way through it.
Jenny - Wonga Park
The girls are more than happy with their new accommodation in the city. They have found the loft space to roost at night. Thanks again for your great service and wonderful chook house. We are really thrilled.
Jan - Mont Albert
Many thanks for the beautiful hen house.
Catie - Eltham
I can't tell you enough how thrilled I am with the chicken house and run. It's exactly what I was hoping it to be and it was a pleasure having Greg & Joel here for the 3 days. You do the most fantastic job.
Dominika - Gisbourne
Greg, the chook run looks fantastic - thanks very much
Janine - Kallista
Greg from Yummy Gardens created raised veggie bed masterpieces in our backyard and filled them with some of the richest composted soil we've ever seen. Greg took care of all the planning with meticulous detail. He also modified our existing chicken house and yard lay out so as to be far more low maintenance than previously. We thoroughly recommend Greg and Yummy Gardens for any backyard project you have in mind.
John & Carol - Eltham
The girls were a little surprised to see me get in the chook house with them but quickly recovered when they saw I had treats for them. I can't wait to check them out tomorrow. I loved being able to throw a handful of seeds down for them and know they are busy, happy and safe scratching around. Thank you again.
Angela - Hesket
The veggie beds look great. I'll have to get a move on & sort out the rest of the yard now.
Sandra - Fawkner
I am just writing to tell you that the chicken house is great & working well beyond all our expectations. Easy to clean and the girls are in full swing laying approximately 18 eggs a week. We are really pleased with the end result which has made it a pleasure having the girls housed in a manageable and safe surrounding. Thank you once again for being so professional and informative.
Gary & Louis -Ashburton
The garden beds look fantastic. You've done a fantastic job. I'm extremely happy. I look forward to adding more in the future.
Belinda - Campbellfield
Thank you for all your hard work, we can't wait to plant out the veggie beds.
Meg & Luca - Thornbury
Just a note to say thanks for our new chook house. The girls moved in over the weekend and have settled in nicely.
Melissa - Eltham
Once again, thank you for doing a great job on the chook house and providing two lovely hens. They look very happy and healthy in their new home.
Steph - Greensborough
We love our backyard and are enjoying it very much. Thanks
Karen & Angela - Northcote
Thanks again for your care and attention to the design and building of the chook house and run (and indulging me my "attention to detail") - I absolutely love it and clearly my first 3 chooks think so too.
Nadja - Lancefield
Thanks so much for our great chook house. I have been hard pressed to get my son out of it.
Sam - Yarraville
Thank you so much for the work you did setting up my veggie beds.
Gillian - Brunswick
The chickens have settled in nicely and the Australrop crosses have given us three eggs already. They are great to have. A few of my friends told me they are jealous - haha! Thank you once again, it is everything the way I like it to be. I have been recommending you to my friends - I cannot help it!!
Winnie - Balwyn
Greg, the chooks Alpha (Australorp), Bravo (Brahma) and Charlie (Rhode Island Red) have settled in really well. We are really impressed with you and the robust, beautiful house that you have built. The chooks feel very safe in their yard and ignore the dogs most of the time. When they hear me coming they run out and talk. Once again, thank you for your great design and bringing three beautiful chooks into my life.
Vicki - Fairfield
Greg, Thanks for coming back and completing the second stage of our backyard makeover by building us a chook house. Our chickens are really happy and I'm amazed at how beautiful they are. We've spent a nice relaxing weekend just watching them roam around the garden. You've done a fantastic job!
Sandra - Coolaroo
We are extremely happy with our new chicken villa which the neighbours have nicknamed the "Chicken Hilton". If we require any extensions or even a chicken retirement annexe at a later date we will not hesitate to contact you.
Mari & Rod - Gisbourne
Just wanted to say Thanks for the gardens beds - they're fabulous.
Eliza - Richmond
We are thrilled with the chook house and fence. Thanks Greg.
Caroline - Port Melbourne
I was extremely happy with the design and workmanship in respect of my vegie beds and also for the helpful advice so freely given by Greg. My friends are all full of praise as well. I am eagerly watching my plants turn into food. Very exciting!
Jacinta - Glen Iris
I have recently had the pleasure of dealing with Greg in relation to the design, construction and planting out of several raised vegetable garden beds, along with the landscaping of my backyard. I found Greg to be extremely organised, polite and hardworking. Greg is an honest and reliable person and an expert in his field.
Sandra - Coolaroo
Greg from Yummy Gardens built a chicken home for our pet chickens earlier this year. He made numerous practical suggestions and the house fits seamlessly into our back garden. It is attractively designed, solidly built and much loved by our free range chooks. We were so impressed by Greg's work that we asked him to build some wooden vegetable boxes recently. He made them from quality wood and again gave insightful suggestions into their design. Greg carried out the works reliably, with careful consideration to detail and was always a pleasure to deal with.
Jenny - Elsternwick
Greg, thanks for the great job you did on the landscaping and the vegetable garden you installed. Even though the veggie garden has only been in for 5 weeks I have already started picking bits and pieces for salads. It looks great and I am the envy of a couple of my neighbours
Karen - Mill Park
I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the herb garden you installed for me. It is great having fresh herbs right outside the back door where I have easy access from the kitchen and I am already using them in my cooking. I'm glad you recommended installing it where we did and we will be getting you back to put in vegie garden later this year.
Natalie - Ringwood
I've always wanted to live in the country and grow my own vegetables
but at this point in my life it is not a realistic goal. I often thought
my normal quarter acre block to be small but Yummy Gardens designed and
created a fantastic edible garden for me. Now I have my chooks, veggies
and a couple of fruit trees and could not be happier.
Thank you so much.
Betty - Blackburn
Thanks heaps for the fantastic job you did on our new chook house. The kids are having a great time with the chickens and cannot wait to go outside to see how many eggs we have. It’s amazing how yellow the egg yolks are compared to the ones we used to buy from the supermarket and they taste great. You were really helpful right from the start and we will certainly be recommending you.
Peter & Mary - Doncaster East
Thanks Greg for such a great job with the new vegie beds. You did a fantastic job here today. I am delighted.
Claude - Croydon
Thanks very much Greg, Alan has planted out the vegie beds and the whole area is looking so beautiful. Thanks again.
Alan and Jodie- Heidelberg Heights
