A position has become available for a Grounds Maintenance Operative at Green Horizons.
You need to have a good understanding of plants and experience of mowing, strimming, hedge cutting and weeding to a high standard is necessary. It is vital that you are of good temperament and are well mannered to everybody that you meet at all times. Long hours, sometimes under pressure, as the season progresses are highly likely.
Due to the nature of our customers requirements, you will be CRB checked before being offered a position and we require two references from previous employers. A clean driving license and transport is necessary and ideally, you should live within a 10 - 15 mile radius of Congleton or Macclesfield before considering this position. Please mention if you have operating experience of Ferris Comfort Control DD pedestrian mowers when you reply, as this would be an advantage.
Green Horizons operates several types of mowing services
Cut and Collect.
For an immaculate finish over larger lawn areas, we provide Ride-On Mowing Services where the grass is collected by the machine. We are able to remove the grass cuttings from site if required.
Cut and Drop.
We offer a cut and drop mowing service for a best economy cut. This works well on large areas where it is not necessary to collect the cuttings. To improve appearance, we can use a walk behind blower to spread the grass cuttings more evenly over the lawn, sometimes making them disappear almost completely.Please be aware that all mowing jobs have a minimum charge of £50.
We have commercial machines of varying sizes and power, able to tackle the toughest of jobs in difficult to reach areas where acess is not possible for a mower.
We also offer contract strimming.
We provide flail mowing services for areas which are overgrown, or only require occasional or low frequency cutting.
Contact us today to discuss your requirements. We are Safe Contractor Approved and all documentation is available upon request. Method Statements and Risk Assessments are provided where necessary.
Lawn Services and Lawn Care
We provide other services including scarifying, the removal of moss and thatch from your lawn. Moss and thatch inhibits the regeneration and general well being of the grass plants in your lawn if left untreated. After scarifying, we use fertilizers with thatch ingesting agents, helping to keep subsequent accumulation of thatch down to a minimum. The debris that has been raked from your lawn can also be removed from site, as a separate service.
We can apply the best selective weed killers to minimize weed invasion into your lawn and we can stripe mow lawns up to a thousand square metres in area.
Contact us today to discuss your requirements. If your requirement is not listed, we can probably still help anyway.
Areas of grassland that have been neglected for long periods become overgrown, the grass becomes tall, spiky and rough with invasive weeds moving in, like nettles and docks. When this happens, it will no longer be possible to cut the grass with conventional equipment. Flail mowers are able to reduce grass that has been allowed to grow for months, but also leave a quality finish on more regularly cut grass areas, for example grass that only needs to be cut once per month, keeping it both healthy and presentable.
Green Horizons is Safe Contractor Approved and services commercial and private premises. Please don't hesitate to contact us, either to arrange regular visits, or for one - off clearance work. Visit our Facebook page to see more examples of some of our previous projects.
