Professional grounds maintenance services - setting your expectations
Are your commercial grounds in a state?
You might have come to the realisation that first impressions count for a lot and be ready to take steps to ensure the exterior of your site is properly and regularly cared for.

If you are currently assessing professional grounds maintenance services, this blog is for you. In it, we outline the services you can select from, discuss how quickly you can expect results, and look at the type of service arrangements typically available. Read on!

What Are Grounds Maintenance Services?

The professional grounds maintenance services on the market can tailor their services according to the specific requirements of your site. This might vary according to how much work needs to be done, how urgently you need the job doing, the time of year, or the in-house capabilities of any groundsmen you currently employ. Among the standard services you can expect are; ground care from mowing to edging, weed control, lawn treatment, hedge cutting and tree control; environmental hygiene, from litter picking to sweeping, leaf clearance, power washing and graffiti removal; snow clearing and gritting; and gardening services, from planting and pruning to landscaping.

How Quickly Can Results Be Achieved?

If you already have neat and tidy grounds regular maintenance tasks such as mowing and weeding can take just an hour/hours, depending on the size for your site. But some tasks will take longer. For example, if your site is untidy or over grown or you require larger scale landscaping or vegetation management, this could mean it will take weeks or months for results to be achieved, depending on the season.

Service Arrangements

The kind of arrangements and financial agreements you choose as part of your service package can depend on the specific professional grounds maintenance company. Do they offer grounds maintenance as an hourly rate? Will they be priced as a team, or per person? If you are a company which is committed to maintaining its grounds, you can expect more favourable rates by taking out a contracted, regular service.
