We’re pleased to confirm that we are now responsible for the delivery of the grounds maintenance service on our estates. Grounds maintenance was previously provided by Glendale for Lewisham Council but is now an in-house service delivered by our own team of staff.
We’ve been asking residents to tell us how they think the grounds maintenance service should be improved because we want you to be happy with where you live.
|You said||We will|
|We want a more regular service||The service will be delivered every 2 weeks across 4 areas, using 7 teams of staff.|
|What standard are the grounds supposed to be kept in?
We want to be involved in monitoring this standard of service.
|We are simplifying the standard of the grounds maintenance service to enable residents to help shape and monitor the quality of the service.|
|We want to be involved with making decisions about the service||We want residents to engage and assist us with our local Grounds Maintenance improvement plans. Please contact us if you’re interested in being part of this.|
|Different gardeners come on each visit. We want someone who takes ownership and who knows our area to do the work.||We have set up a team structure that makes sure the same gardeners remain responsible for work in your area, supported by one or two supervisors.|
|We want a point of contact at Lewisham Homes for grounds maintenance.

And there’s more! Our local Grounds Maintenance improvement plan will include:
- Improving access to grass areas for mechanical mowers to increase efficiency and provide a consistent cut
- Populating existing shrub beds and removing or re-designing some areas
