Havebury Housing Partnership is a not-for-profit affordable housing and social housing association, which currently manages over 6,500 properties across Suffolk and the East of England.
Havebury is dedicated to the provision of good quality affordable homes for its residents, with an emphasis on efficiency, quality and value for money.
idverde provides a range of grounds maintenance services to Havebury’s properties. The contract includes grass cutting, hedge cutting, shrub bed maintenance and weed control throughout the year.
Following the wettest May for some years, the grass, weeds and shrubs in our maintenance areas have grown at a faster rate than normal. We are currently working to a 15-working-day (typically three weeks) maintenance cycle to return outstanding areas to the appropriate standard, but please be aware that some areas are taking longer than usual due to the additional time required to maintain them because of the excessive growth caused by the unseasonally wet May. The maintenance we are able to carry out is also weather-dependent. We are grateful for residents’ patience as we continue to work to address this.
Grass cutting will typically take place on a cycle of every 15 working days / every three weeks (Mondays-Fridays). We collect any litter before cutting the grass and clippings are left evenly distributed. Any arisings that fall on hard surfaces will be blown or swept back onto the lawn.
High profile shrub beds will be weeded 12 times per year. Hedges and shrubs will typically be pruned twice a year – once in summer and once in winter.
Amenity shrub beds and hedge bases will be sprayed three times per year to control weeds and pests.
Hard surfaces will be treated three times a year to control weeds, and once for moss.
We’ll collect leaves eight times a year, and litter a further eight times a year.
We’ll be visiting a small number of ponds throughout the year to clear outlets and debris. We will strim wildlife areas four times a year, and woodland edges once a year.
