Jarrad and Luke from AHLG

Business profile – AHLG

We want to profile businesses that we have worked with who inspire us, and highlight the power of great business relationships. Over the coming months we want to introduce you to some elite companies and quality local business men and women.

Let us introduce you to Adelaide Hills Lawns & Gardens (AHLG).

Founded by Jarrad Tait in 2013, AHLG take pride in offering the very best lawn and garden maintenance service.

In 2015, Jarrad invited Luke Timmins to come on as his business partner and this was the catalyst to AHLG enjoying rapid growth and building a stellar reputation for residential and commercial garden maintenance in Adelaide & the hills.

The boys are a formidable team, and great leaders. AHLG now has 46 staff, 5 divisions, and service reputable commercial clients, among them, Outside Ideas, Bird in Hand Winery, The Lane Vineyard, and Resthaven Retirement Villages, as well as maintaining some of the most prestigious residential gardens in the hills.

We sat down with Jarrad and asked him a couple of questions.

What was the tipping point to deciding to start your own company?
There were a few reasons, but mainly to challenge myself, and I aspired to grow a small team where I would treat employees as they deserve to be treated – with respect, kindness, and empathy.

What’s been the biggest challenge of growing AHLG?
Staying ‘ahead of the game’ and keeping things exciting and rewarding for the team.

What’s been your greatest triumph of running AHLG?

Being able to create awesome employment opportunities for over 40 unreal people and seeing them thrive in their roles.

Over the years of working with AHLG we have been so impressed with their hard work, tenacity, vision, and business smarts. Not to mention their quality work, they maintain our garden at the Finestream office, and have done landscaping and maintenance work at Matt & Liz’s home!

This is what Luke has said about AHLG’s relationship with Finestream,
“Finestream has helped us out so much in business. We used to have so many issues accessing finance and sorting paperwork, but through Matt and Finestream it’s saved us so many problems.

Some of the frustrations we previously had were time related, paper trails, emails, visits, it all added up to way too much for directors of a company. It was just too time consuming.

Now with Finestream we’ve got another 8 utes on the road, a truck, a chipper, and they’ve also sourced a business overdraft for us, which has allowed us to double in the last 12-months.

We’d absolutely recommend Finestream Capital, it’s transformed our business!”
Thanks so much to the whole team at Adelaide Hills Lawns & Gardens. You can get to know AHLG by visiting their website www.ahlg.com.au and following them on Instagram.
