Grounds Maintenance

Residents expect public parks and open spaces to be kept in good order, but with reduced budgets, maintaining high standards can be a challenge. We can provide a cost-efficient service that covers all your needs, with a single point of contact to make life far easier.

How we can help

Our grounds maintenance services are designed to cover the upkeep of all your multi-use games areas and public spaces. We’ll take care of everything from mowing lawns and verges to the upkeep of flower beds and cemetery maintenance.  Our expertise also includes tree works and tree maintenance.

How do we create value for you?

Dealing with one supplier is a far easier way to handle your grounds maintenance. Not only will you realise savings through our cost-effective service, but we can integrate other service schedules to maximise their efficiency; for example, a street cleansing team could visit your public space before mowing, to reduce damage to lawnmowers and prevent litter from being shredded and spread.

We also have a great track record of winning Green Flag awards, so as well as meeting residents’ expectations for clean, green spaces – you’ll also be helping to boost civic pride.
