Edging & Grounds Maintenance

Edging should be done regularly, especially during the growing season. The frequency will vary depending on the size of your facility and the type of vegetation you have. In general, you should edge your lawn and pathways at least once a month

Edging

Edging in ground maintenance is the process of trimming the edges of lawns and pathways to create a neat and tidy appearance. It is often done with a strimmer or edge trimmer, a tool with a rotating blade that can be used to trim grass, weeds, and other vegetation.

Cutting edges is important for several reasons. First, it helps to prevent grass and weeds from encroaching onto pathways and other areas. This will improve the appearance of your facility and make it safer for pedestrians. Second, it can help to direct water flow and prevent erosion. Third, it will help to define the boundaries of the lawns and pedestrian walkways.

ineos outco

OUTCO has worked with INEOS since June 2017, delivering a broad scope of grounds maintenance services to the client’s primary oil refinery site in Grangemouth, Scotland. We manage around 1 million m2 of green spaces, maintaining these areas around offices, substations, bunds, fencing lines, pipeline tracks, and open spaces

A period of consultation between LJHA and OUTCO around the spiralling tree maintenance costs lead to a detailed arboriculture survey being carried out across the entire portfolio. The survey took place over a two-month period. All individual trees were plotted by GIS onto maps and given unique identity codes. The species, age, location and condition were recorded as well as any works required at various levels of priority e.g. within three months within twelve months within twenty-four months.
