Who we are

Estates - Grounds maintenance service standard

We provide grounds maintenance services to council blocks and estates.

Our grounds maintenance service is provided by a number of team’s who carry out the following tasks:

  • Grass cutting
  • Shrub pruning
  • Plant suitable plants in the right locations
  • Shrub bed maintenance
  • Chemical and hand weeding of soft landscape areas.

 

Our Grounds maintenance staff work with our caretakers to ensure all grass areas and flower/shrub beds are cleared of litter and other debris prior to maintenance

We cut the grass on our estates between April and October .During  long periods of  dry weather, we will cease grass cutting. We will not cut grass during heavy rainfall or, if the ground is too wet.

Shrub and trees maintenance

Shrub areas and hedges are generally pruned during our winter works schedule from November to March. Although pruning can be carried out at other times to comply with Health and Safety issues and assist in crime prevention. During pruning works, shrubs will be cut back to make sure they do not overhang other areas such as neighbouring properties and pathways.

Tree pits are cleared from weeds

Our caretakers remove leaves from beds, clear grass areas and paths from litter and debris and weed hard standing areas regularly.

If you have any comments or complaints about the work carried out on your estate then please contact the grounds maintenance team at Ascham Direct on 0208 496 4197.
