Lawn Rescue Family

About Lawn Rescue

Lawn rescue is a family owned and operated business in the beautiful Tasman Region, servicing the entire Top of the South Island of New Zealand. Ivan, our main operator, has been passionate about lawn care since growing up in the green of Ireland and brings his knowledge and enthusiasm to every job.

Being avid dog owners and having two energetic youngsters and a recent new arrival! - at Lawn Rescue we know how important it is for a good, lush lawn to be able to take the thundering of tiny feet and endless games of soccer and rugby.

It’s important to us that the full treatment; from dethatch, through core aeration and then a generous feed of 100% natural, child and pet-friendly fertiliser is safe and non-toxic. Our three little monsters can safely grow up outside like all little Kiwis should.

"Buying a lifestyle section seemed like a great idea, until filling it with the plants and trees we wanted started to feel like Mission Impossible! Like a Green Thumbed Tom Cruise, Ivan has saved the day (or the 50-60 days at our rate), by completing our 2 year plan in a matter of days. He understood what we wanted to achieve, sourced what we were after at fantastic rates and kept us up to date on progress. We've just started Ivan on our 3 year plan and highly recommend his services and expertise."
Jason & Jennifer Monopoli, Redwood Valley
