This is a great position to be in as we focus not only on our ambitious growth plans but also on our core mission – Caring for our Environment, and supporting the UK’s journey to be Carbon Neutral by 2050.
Horticulture Week’s fourth annual Top Landscape & Maintenance Contractors report charts the 70 top players in the landscape construction and maintenance market, and sets out the business activities, personnel, projects and clients to give an exclusive insight into the sector.
The HortWeek Top 70 ranking shows that much of the grounds maintenance and landscaping sector proved resilient throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Our brilliant team have been focussed on continuing to meet customer demand and helping our customers in challenging circumstances. Our increasing NPS score and our high customer retention rate demonstrates how much our customers value our service, and we are servicing new customers across all sectors and in all parts of our portfolio.
Covid has not meant we lost focus on our environmental goals. The Evergreen Fund is now well established and has made its first investments during the Covid pandemic, and we have continued with our ambitious tree establishment programme. We are supporting our customers and communities to meet their ambitious environmental goals through our services and expertise.
No one would call 2020 a great year, but at Ground Control it has at least been a successful one. Covid has demonstrated that we are flexible, resilient, and well equipped to support customers and communities throughout the UK, and we are geared for growth in 2021!
