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.

Grass cutting

Grass cutting will be undertaken as often as is required to maintain the grass at a maximum height of 85mm. 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.

Shrubs and hedges

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.

Weed control and hard surfaces

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.

Other

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.

The latest maintenance rounds information (last visit and next visit) for your area can be viewed using the drop-down menus below. Please note the ‘Next Cut’ dates given below are based on a ‘week commencing’ schedule.

Please note: grass will not be cut when ground conditions are so wet that to do so would cause damage, or so dry as to be unnecessary.
