'Make hay while the sun shines,' so the saying goes - and you should also have this attitude when it comes to grounds maintenance. In the UK, there is a small window of hotter months when grounds and gardens become more of a priority. Not only are they more likely to be used during the kinder climes, but it is also an ideal opportunity to tick off tasks which have not been done during the winter.

There are so many reasons why grounds maintenance is something you should leave to the specialists. In this blog, we look at seven reasons why professional garden maintenance can be a good idea this summer:

Reduces Pests

Pests can flourish in unkempt grounds and gardens because tall grass, hedges and shrubs make for their ideal habitat. Calling on the help of a professional garden maintenance team ensures that pests are kept in check, with the beneficiaries being your plants, as well as people using the grounds.

First Impressions Count

If you are a company which regularly welcomes customers, partners and suppliers to your site, don't underestimate the importance of first impressions. A professional team can help to keep your grounds looking pristine, and this reflects on the thoroughness of your business.

Improves Safety

From vegetation impinging on walkways and parking lots, to trees with branches close to falling, and leaves or weeds which make surfaces slippery - fail to maintain your grounds adequately and you could have a health and safety incident on your hands.

Bespoke Plans

Every site is different, and that is why the best grounds maintenance services will factor the individual characteristics and requirements of your land into their plan.

Reduces Costs

You might have been under the impression that dealing with grounds maintenance in-house would save you money. But have you considered the cost of recruiting an employee full or part time, and the investment in equipment which is needed? Leaving it to a professional grounds maintenance team negates these outlays.

Professional Advice

Why not leave it to the experts? The years of professional garden maintenance experience which the right service can provide offers you the advantage of solutions for every issue and guidance on how to give your grounds the perfect look.

Happier Staff

The grounds of our work site are the first thing which greets us coming into work every morning, and what we see the last thing before we leave. Grounds which are tidy and welcoming can make a difference to the wellbeing of staff, and offer a place to walk and relax during the warmer months.
