Chequers Grounds Maintenance

The latest updates

Last updated: 3rd May 2022

Your grounds maintenance service is currently being delivered in line with our communal standards, including grass cutting for the growing season.

To make sure your service is carried out in full and on time, Chequers has employed a mobile grounds person to cover any staff shortages. This has proven to be effective as we have seen a decrease in delayed or missed visits.

You may have recently received a text message inviting you to answer a few questions about the service, and we’d like to thank those who completed this. Your feedback is so important to us, as it helps us to develop actions for positive change and we are currently reviewing all of your responses.

If you have anything to share with us, we always want to hear from you.

Give feedback

As always, we promise to keep you informed and will update this page if anything changes. Thank you for your input, support and patience whilst we have been working to stabilise the grounds maintenance service.

  • Top focuses

    When Chequers attend site and there is not a requirement to cut the grass, or the weather conditions do not allow, they will focus on other tasks as listed below:

    • manual edging
    • moss clearance
    • leaf clearance
    • hedge pruning (up to 2m)
    • turning over the beds
    • shrub pruning (up to 2m)
    • rose pruning
    • epicormic growth on trees
    • lower overhanging branches.

     

  • Upcoming changes

    We are still working on a solution to share the grounds maintenance schedules with you online. We’re pleased to say these will be available by summer 2022 and we will be in touch to let you know when you can access them!
