The story behind the company name is quite clever:
Frank actually came up with name 25 years ago, but in those days the clients would have laughed at the suggestion of naming a landscaping company 'mud cake'.
He was asked to inspect a faulty landscaping project last year and unfortunately the project had over $100,000 in rectification costs. The client was quite angry and emotional, after she composed herself, she said: "well, after that outburst of mine, we need some help. Can you please assist us, and can I offer you a coffee and a slice of MUD CAKE, it has a calming effect."
So as they say, the rest is history!
