Grounds Care Group has acquired garden maintenance business Green & Tidy Landscapes Ltd to reinforce its position as a leading provider of landscaping services in the Thames Valley area.
As well as Green & Tidy’s client base, Surrey-based Grounds Care Group will also take on its employees, equipment and facilities, including its depot in Moulsford, Oxfordshire.
The company says the additional infrastructure will enable it to expand its geographical reach and expertise in a range of grounds services – including gritting, grounds maintenance, invasive weed removal, tree works and soft landscaping.
Green & Tidy will continue to trade under its own name across Oxford, Milton Keynes and the wider Thames Valley region until November, when it will adopt the Grounds Care Group brand.
The acquisition is part of Grounds Care Group’s growth strategy to expand services across the South of England. CEO Adam Brindle explained: “The acquisition of Green & Tidy is a fantastic opportunity and a significant milestone in our strategy to create a group offering clients the very best landscape maintenance, invasive weed removal and winter gritting services.
“Both companies and our employees share similar values and a devotion to providing high-quality grounds maintenance services and a commitment to customer satisfaction, striving for a long-term relationship with our customers.”
Paul Gittus, managing director of Green & Tidy Landscapes Ltd, said Grounds Care Group’s professionalism and innovative approach to landscape maintenance “gives them the leading edge with their advanced communication systems, which I believe will bring great benefits to our customers”.
From its Cobham base Grounds Care Group now services at least 1,000 sites across the South East.
