  • Spring- as the season of renewal, a professional grounds maintenance team will begin by cleaning up your grounds. This will include removing any debris or dead vegetation that has accumulated over the winter. Once this is completed, the professionals will then focus on lawn care, including fertilisation and aeration to kick start the growing season. This will be paired with planting new flowers and shrubs so that these can be well established by the summer. Some pruning may also be carried out to prevent disease and promote new growth.
  • Summer- during the summer months, a professional grounds maintenance team will focus on maintaining the vibrancy and health of your plants. This will include establishing a watering system to help your plants thrive in the heat. A professional team will also carry out regular mowing, edging, and weeding to keep your lawns and garden beds looking tidy. 
  • Autumn- autumn is an essential time of the year for preparing your grounds for the winter months. During this time, a professional team will keep on top of leaf fall on both paths and grass, preventing slips, trips and falls and preventing your grass from rotting. Other aspects of lawn maintenance may also be undertaken, like over seeding, to repair any damage caused during the summer. In addition, this time of year can be a good time for plant bulbs that will bloom in spring.
  • Winter- in the winter, maintenance tasks often focus on ensuring that your grounds remain both safe and visually appealing despite the harsh weather. One very important aspect of this is snow and ice management, which is essential for keeping paths and walkways safe. Professionals will also continue to monitor and manage plant health, pruning to promote robust growth in the spring. Evergreen plants and winter-flowering shrubs will also be maintained to provide structure and color.
