What is Involved in a Commercial Grounds Maintenance Contract?
If your business has its own garden, lawn or natural outdoor space, you’ll want to keep it looking its best. As well as wanting it to look nice, an aesthetically pleasing exterior can provide your business with a boost, making it more attractive to potential customers and employees.
An easy way to keep on top of your business’ landscaping is to hire commercial grounds maintenance services. A commercial grounds maintenance contract is a great asset to any business, and involves a team of landscapers regularly carrying out a whole host of services – from grass care to tree services and weed control.
Pest Control Division Expansion!
For the last 18 months, regardless of the COVID Pandemic, the John O’Conner Pest Control division has been expanding!
In July 2020, we welcomed our second pest control technician, with a further two starting in November 2020 and a fourth starting in May 2021. In addition, this year we recruited our first apprentice who works on North Hertfordshire and Pest Control Contract as Business Administrator.
To facilitate this expansion, we’ve invested in a fleet of new vehicles. The vans are custom-fitted to allow our new technicians to carry the necessary equipment they need, such as racking, warning signs and ventilation for storing pesticides,
