Edging should be done regularly, especially during the growing season. The frequency of edging 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 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. Edging 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, edging can help to direct water flow and prevent erosion. Third, edging can help to define the boundaries of the lawns and pedestrian walkways.

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.
As the leaves begin to fall, businesses of every size are faced with the annual challenge of leaf accumulation on their premises. Those red, brown and yellow tones of Autumn may look stunning and evoke dreamy thoughts of stirring family walks and mulled wine, but for business, falling leaves clog drains, leading to water damage and flooding, and accumulate on paths, car parks, and other areas, posing a slip and fall hazard. Fallen leaves also attract pests and block gutters
