Best practices

Glendale is an experienced provider of maintenance for housing stock. Over the years, we have developed best practices in order to consistently ensure satisfactory project completion. This includes the adoption of quieter, electric-powered equipment such as hedge trimmers. Using electric tool rather than petrol-powered alternatives not only causes less disruption to residents but also reduces energy consumption and removes the potential for accidental fuel spills.

In terms of specific techniques, our operatives prefer to collect arisings on the first cut of the season. This keeps environments looking their best for the longest possible time and also prevents the development of larger arisings later in the year which are harder to dispose of or recycle. We also promote the use of pedestrian mulching mowers on-site. These leave finely mulched arisings in situ, providing a free, natural turf fertiliser. This approach is more sustainable than applying fertiliser separately and also reduces the number of trips required to remove any arisings.

Glendale's maintenance teams

Our maintenance teams pride themselves on their level of workmanship and producing high quality work and maintenance for everyone to enjoy. Working within diverse communities across the country gives Glendale a thorough understanding of the importance of public green spaces. We trained our operatives to be multi-skilled. This practice not only allows each team to complete work to a higher standard, it also means more projects can be completed on first visit, reducing the requirement for return trips.

Glendale's promise to you

We have previously completed both one-off and regular maintenance work in residential housing areas. These include grass verges, hedgerows alongside paths and roads, green belts, village greens, playgrounds and much more.

Whether a space is primarily used for leisure, such as a park, a community garden, or the landscape around a particular building, Glendale is committed to understanding the importance of that space within the local community.

A portion of our work relating to the maintenance of housing stock, housing associations and local authorities has included an element of rejuvenation. Rejuvenation projects are especially exciting to be involved with and offer extremely pleasing levels of work satisfaction.

Transforming an underused, neglected or derelict space into an attractive, usable area is very important to Glendale and links directly with our core beliefs and values on the environment, sustainability and revitalising outdoor spaces. The teams at Glendale enjoy the challenge of harvesting that potential and giving life back into an asset used by a community.
