Amidst the turmoil of the North Coast flooding, we have been crowned the winner of the Home and Garden Improvement category in the Australian Small Business Champion Awards!

Flood affected Landscape Garden Designers

Like so many businesses on the North Coast of New South Wales, we were severely affected by the recent flooding. The flood water levels reached 1.5 metres within our workshop. We lost thousands of dollars in tools and machinery, including several brand-new utes.

After the flooding, Dan White, owner of Early Up, pulled together with his team to salvage what was left of his business. They spent days cleaning out the toxic sludge. Dan managed to source temporary hire utes, and amazingly within one week they were back up and running.

After the devastation of the floods, it was so uplifting to receive a phone call about the re-scheduled awards… a real ‘pick-me-up’ that we all desperately needed. Early Up’s Operations Manager Vanessa and Dan flew down to Sydney for the award presentation at The Star Casino on Saturday. As you can imagine, it was a very emotional moment for us when we were announced the winners.

We’re back out helping the clean up through Backyard Landscaping

It will take months to fully recover from this natural disaster. However, we feel incredibly grateful that we’re up and running again.
