  • Grounds Clearance and Leaf Blowing

Our team can very quickly transform an untidy looking area into a clean and tidy one which you can be proud of. Leaf clearing services for commercial grounds can be arranged as regular maintenance or as one-off visit. This includes leaf blowing, clearing, collection and eco-friendly disposal. The removal of leaves is particularly important during the autumn time as much for health and safety as keeping things looking neat and tidy.


  • Commercial Irrigation

Keep your grass areas and flowerbeds always looking great, with our commercial irrigation systems. Using our horticultural knowledge, we can identify the plants in on your premises which require the most water and those that require the least water, to achieve the most effective results from your irrigation. Contact us to find out how we can help you develop an effective irrgation system for your lawn and plants.

  • Turf laying and Grass Seeding

We can supply and install commercial turf for your site, with different cost options for you to choose from. Our Turf Maintenance includes fertilisation, top dressing, weed control, aeration, scarification, patch repair, moss control and irrigation and watering.

  • Weeding

Weeds can be vigorous towards other plants, become invasive and take over entire flowerbeds. Weed removal will make room for the prized plants you want on show and ensure your borders are looking neat and tidy. Our knowledgeable experts can identify weeds immediately and set about disposing of them in an eco-friendly way.

  • Gang Mowing and Grass Cutting

We offer a very high standard rotary and ride-on lawn cutting service on a full-time, ad-hoc, weekly or monthly basis for commercial premises.

  • Tree and Shrub Pruning

Most plants benefit from regular pruning and maintenance and it is important to cut back correctly to ensure strong growth as well as maximising year-round colour. Some can be once or twice and others need to be continually pruned and deadheaded, to remain vigorous and in flower.

During the autumn, clearing out the dead by chopping back perennials that have died down creates space for winter bedding as well as new growth the following year. Our team of experts offer basic and advanced pruning as part of our general maintenance services.

  • Topiary

Advanced pruning such as topiary ensures your more ‘manicured’ plants such as yew, box, and ilex crenata keeps a great shape. Whilst topiary creates stylised shapes and forms it is important to have a good horticultural knowledge to identify pests and diseases which can contribute to the death of a plant – such as box blight. Our experts manage the aesthetics of the plants but also the heath, which is important for anyone who wishes to have both beautiful and presentable looking outdoor areas and keep it that way.

  • Landscape Design

Our award-winning landscape team can transform your commercial grounds into an inspirational place for staff, clients and visitors to come. From the initial design through to the construction and planting, we have the knowledge and expertise to create a stunning outdoor space for organisation.

  • Tree and Hedge Installation

We have an extensive tree and hedge installation service suited for commercial use.  Ideal for protecting your boundaries, for screening, creating outdoor spaces and for security.  Working from plan, we can provide you with varying levels of maturity so you can get a hedge that looks as if it’s been there for years instantly, or achieve the desired result within 2-3 years without the cost. Either way we will be happy to help.

We have 1000’s of plants instantly available to you which we grow at our 12 acre Nurseries in Kent.
