Countrywide Grounds wins new five-year contract

Countrywide Grounds, the UK’s leading professional grounds maintenance contractor, has won a new five-year contract with Greenfields Community Housing to deliver grounds maintenance to all the green spaces surrounding its 8,500 homes across the Braintree District and surrounding districts.

The contract is worth over £1 million and started on 1st January 2019.

Greenfields, a community-centred housing association, has awarded Countrywide with the contract to provide an all year-round grounds maintenance service across its towns and villages.

The work will include over half a million square metres of grass cutting and litter collection, over three hectares of pruning and two and a half of weeding, and over four kilometres of hedge cutting. In addition, a gritting service will be available for the residents in Housing for Older People Schemes to ensure paths remain clear and safe.

Andrew Gilliar, Regional Director of Countrywide Essex, said: “We are delighted to win this new contract with Greenfields Community Housing to deliver a fully comprehensive grounds maintenance contract for the next five years.

"Not only are our teams trained to the highest standards, but they have the commitment and enthusiasm necessary to provide a service that’s second to none.

"We fully recognise that Greenfields’ housing and their appearance are key to the standing of its organisation and we will do everything to ensure that their grounds will always look their best. We are really excited to have already started the work and look forward to the seasons ahead.”

Diane Foley, Head of Neighbourhoods at Greenfields Community Housing, added: “We take pride in our neighbourhoods, and we are looking forward to working with Countrywide to ensure our residents get the communal areas and services they deserve.”
