Larry Frohloff has lived in the South Burnett region of Kingaroy for most of his life. After completing school and a butcher apprenticeship, Larry also owned and operated his own Butchery in Kingaroy. In his spare time, he took a lot of pride in his gardens, lawn and yard. After approx. 18 years in the Butchery game, Larry found the outdoors beckoning and a bit more than two years ago he decided to do what he loved the most and started his own gardening business, Kingaroy Yard Services.
Larry’s services cover the wide range of needs that most customers would have, including general mowing and even slashing of larger plots, lawn weed control, pruning, mulching and general tidying up of yards. He tailors his work to the customers’ needs and wishes and to each season’s requirements, and he works with a variety of clients, residential or commercial, from regular town blocks to acreage, covering the Kingaroy, Wondai and Nanango areas. His clients appreciate his friendly, high-quality and very professional approach, and they seem to love looking at their nicely maintained garden after Larry finishes almost as much as Larry himself does!
The latest addition to Larry’s Kingaroy Yard Services equipment is a John Deere S240 Sport ride-on mower that he purchased from Gary Beutel and the ‘very informative’ team at Vanderfield Gatton. Larry chose John Deere for reliability, as he had an L110 that was still going strong after 10 years. Larry thinks that his S240 Sport is a ‘brilliant, strong machine’, and he really appreciates how well its catcher works in smaller yards. Other valuable features are its great ‘ease of operation’, how its ‘good-sized 42inch deck’ makes it a perfect fit for the majority of his clients’ needs and, importantly, how easy it is for him to service it himself.
