Site Maintenance and Landscape Services

Nottinghamshire’s school grounds form a vast estate that requires specialist technical landscape management. We know that well maintained and managed grounds can provide an attractive and healthy environment. They can be a haven for wildlife and a valuable amenity for children, parents and the wider community.

Our fully trained staff can provide a professional sportground and facilities, landscape, horticultural and arboricultural service which is tailored to suit your individual needs. Health and safety compliance forms an integral part of this estate management. With their skills, experience and knowledge, our landscapes team can ensure your site looks attractive, complies with relevant legislation and is fit for purpose throughout the year.

In addition we will work with the Site Design and Improvements Service team for larger development projects to ensure you receive the most efficient and effective service.
