You can find lots of information on our services below, as well as the different help and support that we can provide.

Communal gardens

 Where our homes have a shared or communal garden or lawn area, we may provide a grounds maintenance service. You pay for this service through a weekly/monthly service charge. We carry our regular visits throughout the year.

Below, we outline our services and their frequencies per area: 

    • Maintenance of communal grassed areas which involves controlling excessive growth by cutting grass
    • We use a combination of ride on and pedestrian rotary mowers to cut and drop arisings
    • It includes strimming obstacles, fence lines, path edges or areas where the mowers cannot reach

    • Maintaining the shape and balance of communal hedges and shrubs which consists of controlling plant growth by a combination of pruning and trimming
    • We use a combination of petrol hedge cutters during these activities

    It also includes:

    • Removing litter and controlling weeds
    • Using a knapsack sprayer to spot, treat or remove by hand tall or inaccessible weeds

    • Litter picking will be carried out on every visit
    • Will consist of removing litter from communal areas
    • Includes leaf removal

    • Weed/Moss treatment will be carried out when required (please see below schedule or the contract area)
    • Scheduled when the spraying conditions are optimal ideally with dry weather with little wind
    • Weed/Moss treatment will reduce any H&S risk of slipping
    • Will also improve the visual appearance of your estate

    • Hand weeding will be carried out in communal shrub beds if the conditions don't allow a sprayer to be used
