Schools & Colleges Case Study

A large secondary school in the South Cumbria region were seeking a company to take on their grounds maintenance and assist their own internal team to ensure that the school grounds were fit for purpose when playing sports and also enhance the beauty of the school.

We met with the school and their internal maintenance team to assess what their requirements were, where their strengths lay and what they wanted to achieve. We then put an annual grounds maintenance strategy together which highlighted areas of maintenance and areas of development. The strategy was created with their proposed monthly budget in mind and also included some ideas we felt would add to their own requirements which they hadn’t thought of.

The school were impressed with the strategy and chose South Lakes Tree Surgeons & Landscapes Ltd to undertake their annual grounds maintenance. We are now into year three of working with the school, who are delighted with our work, which can be seen by the testimonials below.

“South Lakes Tree Surgeons & Landscapes have ensured that our school grounds have been fit for school sports for the last three years. Our own sports department and visiting schools always comment positively on the standard of our sports pitches and our internal maintenance team know that they can concentrate on other areas in confidence that South Lakes will always deliver on their planned work.”

Walney School

South Lakes Tree Surgeons have managed our grounds maintenance at Walney School for a number of years and we have built up a very good relationship with them on many levels. Their work is tireless and despite the inclement weather conditions, they accomplish a great deal. We have extensive grounds which the team manage relentlessly from grass cutting, weed removal to line markings for our PE Curriculum. We have also appreciated the flexibility of the service as they have made unscheduled visits upon request. I would have no hesitation in recommending South Lakes Tree Surgeons.”
