Belinda D

We recently had Dan and his team complete a mini makeover to our front garden area. Not having much of a green thumb or knowledge of the best plants to suit this area we turned to Dan Shelton White for his advice.
We are extremely happy with the outcome of the plants chosen and the way Dan and his team were able to complete this work within our time frame.
We have had many compliments from family and friends and we would highly recommend Early Up Property Solutions for all of your gardening needs and advice.
Many Thanks Dan!

Dan is absolutely awesome! He has completely saved my gardens, cleaned everything up, landscaped and planted gardens that I both love, and am able to maintain.
Dan listened to what I wanted, and what time I have to spend gardening, and implemented landscaping that is both practical, and looks fabulous.
I can highly recommend Dan and his work.

Fully recommend them.

Sammi T

Dan and Early Up Property Solutions have been doing my yard and 2 of my neighbours yards for the past 6 months.
Our lawns have never been better, one of my neighbours really struggled to keep his lawn looking good so I asked Dan to see if he could help, omg what a difference one side of the street looks amazing and I am now working on the neighbours on the other side.
Thank you so much Dan and the team.

Tracey H

I want to thank Dan for working his magic on my property. Looking at all that had to be done, had become overwhelming.
Dan came and with an eye for presentation he and his offsider worked a miracle. In front of my eyes he transformed my surrounds.
You cannot know how grateful, relieved and pleased I am with what you did for me Dan.
Thank you. 😊

Sheralyn W

Dan and his team helped me remove most of existing garden in our new home and create exactly what I was looking for.
I couldn’t be happier with the result and have to say that Dan was professional, ambitious in his attitude to get it right and the attention to leaving it tidy and sprinklers operating as required was very appreciated.
Thanks Dan & Co

Kirsten D

Needed some inspiration for our backyard garden area as it was in need of some TLC. Dan came around and provided some great ideas.
Dan and his team gave the garden area a great clean up, designed an area with river rocks and bright coloured pots, fresh soil, and mulch. He also suggested what new plants to put in and arranged all of this to be planted as part of the job. He and his team work very efficiently and when the job was done we were so impressed.
Thanks Dan!! Look forward to working on stage 2 when we tackle the other area of our yard!!

Angela A

Dan and his team did an amazing job getting our garden in order.
He firstly came to the property and gave an honest and helpful solution to what we should do.
He then coordinated everything we needed in the timeframe we wanted it completed. They worked tirelessly all day and acheived what they said they would do in a day.
Thanks team for a fantastic job well done.
Would highly recommend them.

Dan is wonderfully knowledgable, has great ideas, and he and his team provide a terrific service - reliable, diligent and well priced. Dan will also spot things that need to be done and will let you know, but never pushes.

SO happy with my backyard makeover!! Thank you Early Up team.
Dan helped me turn some general ideas into a plan and then worked closely with me to get an outcome that we love.
Thanks so much for all the calls and effort to get this perfect. And you left our site looking immaculately clean.
Thanks guys!

Laura K

Wow. Dan and the guys did an awesome job yesterday in our garden. It's gone from sandy scrappy empty garden beds to beautiful lush plants, organic soils and mulch. It's now a pleasure to hang out in and the kids love it.
Thanks everyone- we appreciate your care and love for our space!
Ps the speed in which these guys worked was amazing!

Vivian A

Working with Dan was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. We didn't have a clear plan of what we wanted but through discussions with Dan, a clear plan was fleshed out. Dan has great ideas and was able to interpret our vague ambition into a space that we are really happy with. He has totally transformed our front yard.
Dan communicates really well, shows up when he says he will and delivers on his promises - what more can you ask for? Thank you for all your hard work . We look forward to tackling other parts of the yard soon.

Nadia M

Dan and the team are the best give them a call....5 out of 5

Steve H

Dan was incredible in transforming my garden from a place I rarely ventured into, to a peaceful haven. His punctuality, attention to detail and ability to leave things cleaner than he found them was as remarkable as his work ethic. I would highly recommend him.

Emanuel G

Dan has worked on my garden a few times & the tranformation each time is astounding. His knowlege, money saving tips & general professionalism is worth every cent (and his prices are very reasonable to boot!) He is my garden whisperer/guru 😊!

Colleen R

Dan is a real professional. I've used his services many times over the past five years. He has helped us to get our garden to where we have wanted it for years, we couldn't have done it without him!

Leonie R

Dan did a big job in my garden today. He totally removed a large triangle palm. I couldn't believe my eyes when he finished. Anyone not knowing that the palm had been there would not have known it was gone. The garden actually looked better when he finished.
I was impressed by his knowledge and expertise as well as the fact that he worked very professionally. His charges are reasonable and I will definitely be having him back to do other jobs for me.
