Terry Burgess may be one of the most experienced professional lawn mowing operators in the Western Bay of Plenty with over 20 years experience in Australia and New Zealand. He joined the Crewcut Franchise Group back in November 2007 and has lived in Te Puke for over 10 years. He is well known and respected by other lawn mowing contractors, local business people, community groups and the locals . Currently, he is the only lawn mowing contractor who lives and operates in Te Puke. As well he has a client base in Maketu, Waitangi and Little Waihi. You can’t miss him as he drives a blue 1989 Ford F150 truck towing the Crewcut sign written trailer. Terry only uses professional quality mowers, brushcutters and blowers to handle all situations and operates a ride on mower for medium to larger sized properties.

Before coming to New Zealand in September 2005 he operated his own private lawn mowing business in Melbourne’s outer eastern suburbs for 10 years. And prior to this he worked with the Victorian Department of Labour for just over 20 years in senior managerial positions which put him in a good stead to be able to manage his own business adventures. 

He originally came to New Zealand with a massage equipment business but decided to refocus his business direction by rejoining his passion of working outdoors mowing lawns. After discussions with other franchise groups Terry chose Crewcut as he felt they stepped up to the mark with their presentation and branding and looked like it would suit him the best. 

His business mission is to provide customer service excellence and by providing that excellence it rebounds back on his business both financially and personally. He advocates that by treating your clients as well as others with a great respect and by providing quality professional workmanship as well as being reliable, friendly and trustworthy, it puts you in the forefront to be recognised. Also, by being out on the road working in Te Puke and neighbouring towns and living and shopping in Te Puke, the communities are continuously reminded of Crewcut.
