Our Story

Rolling out our track record

Founded in 1998 by turf experts Geoff and Sally Green, GHG (aka. Green Horticultural Group) won its first major contract growing turf for Sydney’s Olympic Stadium and spreading thousands of tonnes of ameliorants with our unique Unimog spreading trucks to the site that is now Sydney Olympic Park.

Since then GHG has grown – along with a passion for beautiful, natural open spaces and elite level sports fields. We pride ourselves on our unique range of specialised plant and equipment, as well as our ability to provide customer with quality turf construction, renovation, drainage, irrigation and maintenance services.

Customers benefiting from our services include: local government bodies, schools, universities, racecourses, sporting associations and public parks and gardens across the Eastern Seaboard of Australia.

“We deliver a level of service unequalled in the industry, and many customers have been with us from the start. Our
competitive advantage is that WE deliver all aspects of a project – with minimal subcontracting. This gives us greater
control over service delivery and gives our customers real security in achieving their desired outcome”

Geoff Green, Managing Director
