Common Ground Property Services is a Brisbane-based company that provides high quality and sensibly priced cleaning and property maintenance packages for your body corporate, workplace or home. We are friendly and reliable, and would love to help out at your place.

Garth, Founder and Owner

After 10 years managing the cleaning and catering operations for a large international airline, Garth decided to start his own cleaning and gardening business in October 2010.

Garth quickly set about creating a business model for Common Ground Property Services that included simple principles such as always communicate clearly, let the market dictate your services and have great systems. This model is constantly evolving and Garth is always looking for ways to improve his business.

Steve, Right-Hand Man

Joining the company in April 2014, Steve is one of the longest serving members of the Common Ground team.

Steve has over 14 years experience in garden maintenance, and his friendly nature helps him get along well with clients. He is also very hard-working and is normally the first on-site each morning.

James, Young Gilligan

James has been with Common Ground since Sept 2017, and has recently earned the nickname Young Gilligan (because of the broad brimmed hat he wears).

James trained as a building designer before deciding that outdoor work suited him better than an office environment. With his easy going nature and reliability, James has been great addition to the company.

Stacey, Admin & Payroll Ninja

Stacey has been a huge help since joining us in mid-2017. She is kept busy with invoicing and payroll, and is also putting together our admin manual.

A mother of two young children, Stacey enjoys gardening and yoga when she can find the time.


Scott, The Outdoor Type

Scott is a keen gardener, hiker and traveller. Originally trained as a bricklayer, Scott has great enthusiasm for outdoor work.

Recent years have seen Scott work in retail and merchandising for a major outdoor retail chain, which has helped him to hone his customer service skills.

Our Logo

The Common Ground Property Services Logo is made up of two green leaves in the foreground and the outline of a house in the background.

The house represents the cleaning and maintenance of our clients' properties, while the two green leaves represent the two key areas of garden maintenance - lawns and garden beds.

The two leaves also represent the fact that Common Ground Property Services was started with just two regular body corporate clients.

Our Name

The name Common Ground Property Services was chosen for three reasons.

1. Common Ground Property Services is dedicated to servicing the 'common areas' of residential apartment complexes and commercial premises.

2. We all share one planet, and we need to try and find 'common ground' with those around us to help make our lives easier and more fulfilling.

3. We really liked the name.
