Commercial Grounds Maintenance.
Commercial Grounds Maintenance, or Commercial Grass Maintenance, is the regular care and upkeep of grassed areas.
Sometimes commercial grounds maintenance is used as the collective term for all services which can be combined to care for and maintain your green or external spaces, such as sports facilities management, pest control, hard and soft landscaping and arboriculture. Here at Landscape Services we try to keep it as simple as possible, and so for our customers grounds maintenance refers only to the care of your grassed areas.
Mowing, weeding, fertilising and mulching are all great examples of commercial grounds maintenance at Landscape Services, and are often used alongside other services to offer a fuller package. Our staff are experienced and trained in soil science and can develop bespoke maintenance programs for your open space to offer you a greener, lusher and healthier yield.

Our commitment to reducing our impact on the environment means we’ll always use approved, low-impact pesticides and sprays, and battery or hybrid equipment wherever possible.
Our teams operate a large catalogue of expert equipment to provide lawn and grass mowing services.
Grass edging, or lawn edging, is a subset of ground maintenance that focuses specifically on visual appeal. A well-maintained green space is essential for commercial properties, significantly impacting the overall appearance of your property or open space.
Grass aeration creates small pockets beneath the soil to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots.
Top dressing & overseeding
Top dressing fills or evens out irregularities and dips in the soil, ready for overseeding with new grass seed.
Weed & moss control
Using quality, approved herbicides and the expertise of our Grounds Maintenance team to ensure your weeds and moss are kept under control.
Turfing: Astro & live grass
Turfing is the process of applying pre-grown grasses to areas of a lawn which may be patchy or bare to provide an instant visual effect.
Fertilising & renovation
The act of fertilizing feeds nutrients to the soil which gives the correct PH levels and improves the overall nutritional value of the soil.
