South East Mowing has been providing lawn mowing and garden maintenance services to south east Melbourne suburbs since 1994.


Meet our team



Joe is the eldest of the team, but very fit having always been an active sportsman. Educated to HSC level, Joe quickly found his niche in the food industry.

His business acumen together with skills importing, exporting, handling major accounts and most importantly understanding employee & client needs saw Joe help expand the business internationally.

Joe has now turned his weekend relaxation in the garden to enjoying it on week days in this family business. His approach to the gardening business is exactly the same. Build client trust and loyalty through great products, service and pricing.



After leaving school and spending many years as a restaurant manager John decided he wanted a healthy outdoor lifestyle. In 1994 John started his residential lawn mowing & gardening business in the Waverley area with the “Local Mowing” group. The attention to detail and service commitment he applied in the restaurant trade flowed through to the new business.

South East Mowing have grown to a small committed team of 4, John, brother Joe, Andy and brother-in-law Gary. We also have a few reliable sub contractors for suburbs we may not cover or larger work we may need help with.

Recently moving into commercial lawn mowing and garden maintenance, we now manage small and large business sites, small developers, government & school sites. We have managed sites up to twenty acres, in particular a 150 unit retirement village in Glen Waverley.


Andy (Subbie)

Andy grew up in his family owned native plant nursery where 80-100 different species were grown from seed at any one time. The nursery has since closed and Andy made the change to lawn garden maintenance in 2009. Andy has received Certificate 3 in Horticulture as recognition of his knowledge and work in the industry and now studying towards Certificate 4.

Andy’s passion is garden clean ups and makeovers and his plant nursery experience is put to good use when these opportunities arise. One of the great things about South East Mowing is that every contractor we employ runs their own business.
