We create, maintain and sustain outside spaces that boost biodiversity, enhance amenity value and encourage the community to reconnect with nature.

At the heart of a vital green-space agenda that brings together the UK’s housing sector, we help local authorities, social housing landlords, new build residential developers, supported living, care and retirement providers explore how nature-positive housing grounds maintenance & landscaping can deliver their sustainability goals.

We also empower housing associations and resident groups through the creation of the Green Spaces Advisory Board and encourage new voices from a younger generation of community champions at a time when the opportunity to access green space funding is greater than ever.

Maximising new and existing green assets should be a central part of the housing sector’s decarbonisation and community wellbeing efforts. That’s why our nature-based solutions ensure residential schemes make best use of parkland, woodland, verges, scrubland, gardens, lakes and canals.

This approach helps customers move the sustainability agenda beyond housing stock by applying nature-positive housing grounds maintenance and landscaping as a tool to unlock vast areas of open space for carbon capture, nature’s recovery and resident health and wellbeing.

We collaborate with housing sector customers to consult, finance, design, build and manage sustainable green spaces. Our work ensures stakeholder environmental ambitions are realised through community gardens, resident orchards, edible herb borders, woodlands, wildflower meadows and wildlife habitat improvements.

We care for the natural environments that benefit people and planet and ensure customers’ green space enhancements deliver meaningful sustainable value.
