Please take a look at our current offers and discounts to see how we can help you.

Worldwide Plants Grass Cutting

A major part of our work on sites is grass cutting and lawn maintenance and we have the equipment to handle any type of grass areas, be it small utility lawns or large housing estates we have the equipment from small push along lawn mowers to stand on zero turn mulching mowers as well as strimmers to cut grass along perimeters and around objects and tools to define and create lawn edges. Through lawn care we can repair and patch areas of bare and worn grass as well as feed and treat where required. Grass cuts are carried out frequently to keep the grass blades to the correct length to promote health and growth while keeping the lawns looking neat and lush. Any grass cuttings removed are taken away for recycling.

Bed Maintenance

This includes shrub beds and flower beds or a mixture of both and we carry out all the necessary garden care to really bring the beds and plants up to a high standard of health and look, this includes clearing the bed of any debris, removing weeds, digging over, leveling the soil, applying a ground cover such as decorative bark, mulching, feeding, the list goes on. This is one of the more labour intensive tasks we carry out using larger equipment where possible but ultimately it is the hand work that really keeps the shrub beds looking good.

Hedge Cutting

From huge perimeter hedges down to individual shrubs we trim and prune them all using petrol or battery powered hedge cutters and hand tools to keep all your hedges and shrubs in the right size and shape for their surroundings and in good health. The bulk of hedge cutting is carried out twice per year with maintenance and trimming carried out throughout the growing season as required. All cuttings are cleared from around and under the hedge and removed from site to be recycled into usable compost.

Trimming and Pruning

Shrub beds and individual plants are regularly trimmed for size and shape to aesthetically fit their surroundings and hand pruned to remove dead or unhealthy growth to improve the health of the plants. Shrubs and flowers are dead headed when blooms die off and only fully trimmed once blooms have finished, we will always cut back and trim at the right time of season for the individual species of plant. Perennial plants are cut back when they go to ground ready for the next seasons growth.

 

Weed Control

Due to weeds any parts of an estate can quickly become unsightly therefore we regularly lay down a weed control to keep all grounds clear of weeds, these being pathways, roadways, hard standings, perimeters and gravel beds. The weed controls we use are systemic which means the spray is taken in by the foliage of the weeds leaving the surrounding ground uncontaminated and safe, the weed then takes the active ingredient through the leaves and into their roots killing off the whole weed safely. Weeds in shrub beds and garden areas will be pulled out by hand or hoed instead out to prevent weed killer drifting onto any plants.

 

Watering

We provide a regular watering services for sites with containers, window boxes, hanging baskets or raised beds, these types of area do not get enough water naturally even during our sometimes wet British summers so will suffer unless watered, we always water as conditions dictate to ensure plants grow lush and healthy. We carry the hoses and equipment on our vehicles ready to connect up to your water source and water by hand, sprinklers and if not reachable by hose will use watering cans. If the garden has an automatic irrigation system then we will set up and adjust the timing to suit the time of year and conditions.

Leaf Clearance and External Cleaning

At WWP we also provide certain tasks relative to the time of season within our seasonal services with the main work during autumn months being leaf collection, removal and recycling. All of the leaves we collect are taken away from site to a specialist green waste facility who store the waste and turn it into useable compost. As part of a commercial maintenance contract there usually involves external cleaning and litter picking which is part of our complete package of services, this is a task that is required year round and at a frequency to your requirements.

Moss Control

Areas of moss can become slippery and unsightly, for this we lay down an organic algae and moss killer that works actively over a period of time, with application once or twice a year will keep most areas moss free. Initially if the moss is very thick we will first scrape it up and clean through the area with hand tools and a mechanical broom before laying down the moss killer to kill off the area and prevent regrowth.

Planting

We can also supply and plant new plants where there are bare patches in a bed or where improvement is deemed necessary a whole area can be designed and planted.
