OUTCO Honoured with Gold at Yorkshire in Bloom

As the main ground maintenance provider for the University of Leeds, OUTCO is delighted to announce that the University has retained its Gold Award and achieved Category Winner in the Universities & Colleges of Further Education Category at the Yorkshire in Bloom Awards 2023.

This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of OUTCO’s team, as well as the University’s Estates Services Grounds and Gardens Team and all other partners involved in maintaining the campus grounds.

The judges were particularly impressed “by the volume and range of green spaces on campus, as well as the careful consideration given to the balance of tidy, well-maintained areas with more relaxed areas of natural planting in line with the University’s sustainability goals.”

OUTCO is proud to play a role in helping the University of Leeds to achieve this prestigious award. We look forward to continuing to work with the University to maintain and enhance its beautiful campus grounds for many years to come.
