As a company, GRITIT™ takes its social responsibility obligations seriously, and reducing our carbon footprint is not only a company priority, but a global imperative that every individual should consider in their own day to day lives.
With snow and ice forecast across much of the UK, GRITIT™ is ready for some busy nights and days ahead, keeping facilities open for business and safe for visitors alike. Whilst the nation has experienced a mild and unusually wet winter to date, February can bring severe challenges.
With the start of the Grounds Maintenance season just around the corner in the UK, responsible grounds contractors such as GRITIT are investigating and testing alternatives to Glyphosate (Roundup). Although this is very much a developing scenario, there are alternatives in the marketplace that produce weed control results on a large scale.
Now that we're officially more than halfway through winter, many site managers are considering the grounds of their facilities during the warmer months ahead. Spring is a fabulous time of the year, with a new season bringing the long sought for promise of warmer weather, birds nesting and the arrival of daffodils and snowdrops. It also means that the new season of outdoor work for our grounds maintenance teams begins in earnest, and it's worth a healthy reminder of why outsourcing your grounds work to a professional Grounds Maintenance team such as GRITIT's makes for sensible, risk-free grounds maintenance.
During early Spring, there is a lot of catch-up outdoor maintenance work, such as cutting back dead foliage and growth, clearing grounds in preparation for new plants, thinking about cleaning up after the storms and the winter weather and even preparing for the first lawn cuts of the season. These categories of outdoor activity do all carry risks which are worth examining hiring a cheap and cheerful local contractor.
With the British Isles lulled into a false sense of security during a hitherto mild winter, GRITIT preparation behind the scenes is reaping rich rewards for 24/7 safety first businesses that must remain open, regardless of the snow, frost, rain or wind, and with a colder February and March in the offing, you can expect to see more of our crews out and about in freezing conditions at unsociable hours whilst the rest of the nation is very sensibly asleep in a toasty warm bed.
