Grounds Maintenance

Grounds Maintenance

Our Grounds Maintenance team deal with grass cutting and tree care on the communal land that we own.

One of our operatives performing tree surgeryThis service is to make sure that the green areas of your community are kept neat and tidy. We recognise that these areas are important in making your community a pleasant place to live. To help this, we aim to cut the grass in your area every month during the summer. Alongside this, we will trim hedges, maintain ditches and tend to flower beds on our grounds. We also inspect and maintain children’s play equipment, get rid of invasive weeds and nurture wildflower meadows.

In addition, we have qualified tree surgeons to look after any trees on our land. We will remove or prune trees that have become a nuisance and keep all our trees in a good condition. When we have to remove trees, we will replace them with suitable species that suit the look of the area.

If you have a query about the grass cutting in your area or are worried about a potentially dangerous tree, please contact Paul Bunce on 01508 532069 or email:
