Grounds Maintenance Specialists

At Oculus Facilities Management, we can provide you with detailed grounds maintenance services. We can provide all year round grounds maintenance packages covering all the fundamentals required to keep your grounds looking pristine, including grass cutting, lawn care, strimming, litter picking, herbicide treatments and site sweeping.

We can also support you with more detailed landscaping works for larger projects, such as drainage systems to tree removal services too.

Planned Regular Grounds Maintenance

We can create a tailored regular grounds maintenance plan, specifically designed around the services you need on a regular basis such as lawn mowing, litter collection and snow and ice removal in winter months. We pay extra attention to detail so we can leave your property looking clean and smart, after every visit. Our planned maintenance packages include fortnightly visits in the spring and summer, changing monthly visits at the end of autumn and winter.

New Build Lawn Care

We work with property developers of all sizes to help you with all aspects of your new build properties lawn care. Most developers lay new turf at the end of the build and, on average, it takes a property at least 2 months to go through to completion. In this time your new turf can die, resulting in further cost to take up and relay. Our grounds teams are specialists in keeping your turf in great condition ready for the new owners to move into the property.

Litter Picking and Site Sweeping

A common issue for communal residential or commercial properties is dropped litter, leaving your site looking unkept and less than optimal for prospective buyers or your business team members. We offer professional litter picking for both dropped and wind blown litter, along with site sweeping services which deal with seasonal issues such as dropped leaves or snow/ice.

Landscaping Works

We can also factor larger professional landscaping work into your grounds maintenance plan, or deliver such projects on a one off basis. Our expert team are highly experienced in a wide range of landscaping jobs, including paving and pathway building, planting and flower bed creation, decking and ornamental water features.

Herbicide Treatments

Weed removal can be a big job when not done correctly and managed on an ongoing basis, even causing damage to your property over time. Our operatives are certified to PA1 for treatments and use only the best professional products. We can provide you with an extremely effective herbicide treatment across your entire site - avoiding any damage to your existing plants or natural wildlife living in your property grounds.

Tree Removal

Our team of fully qualified tree surgeons can also help you with both maintaining trees within your property grounds, along with removing those which have become dangerous or blocking out natural light. It's important to work with specialists when undertaking the removal of trees and we're on hand to talk you through this process.

How often your business needs ground maintenance requires depends on the time of year and the elements of your premises which need to be maintained. Given that grasses and plants grow quicker in the spring/summer, tasks such as mowing and trimming need to be carried out up to every week.


In autumn and winter although these tasks are less frequent, there are additional services that can be required during these months. For example, this could include additional litter picking and ice/snow removal for pathways during cold weather. Visits can also be reduced during this time if required.

Grounds maintenance services are flexible and can be tailored to your needs. The fundaments of an effective, all year round, service should include tasks like:

  • Planned regular grounds maintenance
  • Landscaping works
  • Litter picking and ground sweeping
  • Herbicide treatments

Although some grounds maintenance services can be reduced in winter months, it’s a good idea to keep a base level of maintenance services to cover services such as litter picking and pathway clearing. Services such as ice and snow removal are also specifically for winter months.
