About Us

Lanyon Management Services (LMS) was established in 1991 by David Norris to provide a high level of landscape maintenance and land care solutions to Diplomatic Missions, Federal and ACT Government Agencies, Prestige Residential Gardens, Commercial and Aged Care sectors in the Australian Capital Territory.

Since 1991 we have evolved through a loyal client base by understanding the need to be at the top of our industry in providing quality and reliable service and solutions. We have built a reputation via referral business only and have always ensured that we take care of both our client and employee’s needs.

The decision to work purely on a referral basis allows us to manage our workload through wet and dry seasons and in turn, provide a high level of quality service with continuity. In principle we prefer to grow with our clients rather than be over committed.

Our services comprise of:

  • Procurement Specifications and Evaluation
  • Vegetation Management
  • Native and Feral Animal Population Management
  • Project management of Gravel roads and Asphalt maintenance
  • Fire Mitigation Solutions
  • Broad acre, general side discharge and irrigated lawn mowing.
  • Turf care such as fertilizing, pest control and renovation work.
  • Garden bed maintenance and restoration, including hand weeding, hedging, fertilization, and other tasks subject to the needs of the garden beds.
  • Irrigation system management.
  • Arborist reporting and provision of services.

    LMS consists of a team who are employed on a full time and seasonal basis, and we also have access to specialist service providers. Our team of Consultants can provide advice and direction on a wide range of land care issues and landscape maintenance. Our ability to provide specialised solutions to meet client’s needs has helped build our reputation over the past twenty-five years.
