Hortlands were invited to tender for two of Arla foods UK-based factories for the full grounds maintenance package. A bespoke package was put together for both sites which included:
Cut all lawns during the growing season, remove moss and thatch by scarification and aerate once annually. Apply selective herbicides to formal lawn areas when required throughout the year along with feeding when required.
Spot spray systemic herbicide on all kerb edges and emerging weeds throughout the site.
Prune all specimen trees, hedges and topiaries as and when required and in line with good horticultural practise, we also ensure all specimen trees and shrubs are looking their best throughout the year by folia feeding and applying pesticide and fungicide when needed.
Keep all beds and borders free from weeds, keep grass edges sharp and to the shape of original design and ensure the final finish of the beds are managed and topped up if needed. Monitor the irrigation system on site and arrange for any repairs needed by our specialist irrigation team.
Provide all tools and equipment along with the specialist knowledge to keep your grounds in the best condition possible. Remove all green waste from site and recycle.
