When GRITIT looks after your hard standing area, litter and debris will be collected/swept after every visit ensuring the site is free of all windblown material. If your car park is regularly defaced by litter and refuse then our hard standing litter service will make it look neat and tidy throughout the year.
Cracks in hard standings, between paving and less worn areas at the edges of car parks, paths and drives are usually colonized remarkably quickly by unwanted vegetative growth and weeds. This can make the hard standing area unslightly, uneven or slippery when wet. Other primitive growths such as moss and algae can also build up in hard standings. GRITIT controls these through proactive hard standing weeding and maintenance.
Leaves will be collected and removed from hard standings as standard during the Autumn fall, with leaf clearing collections in October, November and December. At GRITIT we also offer a number of other autumn services to enhance the look of your hard standings and grounds. Even though hard standings leaf clearing is a big part of your autumn clean up, there is more to do then just that. GRITIT's autumn services for your hard standing and grounds can also include everything from maintaining the beds to cutting the lawns.
A tree survey are automatically carried out on a three year cycle to ensure all trees on site are in a healthy and safe condition. A GRITIT tree survey ensures that your trees grow in the right shape and direction, and that branches are always monitored to be cleared to 2.4m over paths, 5m over roads, 1m from all street lighting, traffic signs, traffic lights, street name plates and 2m from windows or adjacent premises.
Major tree pruning operations can also be carried out by our tree surgeons as and when required. GRITIT tree pruning ensures that you comply with the Highways Act 1980 Section 154 in removal of all low branches.
Low branches are constantly monitored, pruned and lopped to ensure that safe and clear pedestrian and vehicular routes are maintained as part of GRITIT standard tree works. GRITIT low branch removal ensures that you comply with the Highways Act 1980 Section 154 in removal of all low branches.
Epicormic growth on the base of mature trees will be removed once per year during the winter months as part of GRITIT standard tree works. Epicormic growth are shoots arising at the bottom of the tree - epicormic growth removal ensures that new suckers will be removed or thinned annually using a handsaw, secateurs or chainsaw.
Bed and border weeding will vary depending on the situation encountered. For example, the approach for controlling weeds in lawn or sports turf will vary from the approach taken on hardstanding. In addition to these situations there may be a number of reasons for undertaking bed and border weeding.
Bed and border litter is removed from beds and borders during every visit by GRITIT. This is a standard part of the GRITIT bed and border litter & debris service.
Beds and borders can quickly dry out or be taken over by weeds. We recommend use of bark mulch across the soil surface which will bring several benefits to your grounds. Bark mulching is ideal for tidying borders and flower beds after leaves fall, helps reduce grounds maintenance by suppressing weed growth, helps conserve soil moisture during dry weather, reduces soil erosion during heavy rain, insulates plant root area from the weather either freezing or hot and protects the top area around the plants from drying out too fast.
Hedges and Shrubs are maintained by GRITIT to a high standard ensuring sites look tidy in appearance and do not obstruct any pedestrian or vehicular routes. GRITIT provides a comprehensive hedge trimming service that shapes the hedges on your grounds, develops hedge density, and complements the trees, shrubs and flowering plants.

Pruning and cutting back will take place during winter months depending on variety and species. We can also extend our hedge services to include small trees and shrubs to keep your garden tidy.
