Staff will manage and maintain grass, hedges, shrub, rose and flower beds, weeds and hard surfaces. Glendale will also create several apprenticeship roles, run placements and sponsor community events.

Contract manager Daniela Blomeley said: "Supporting communities is always at the core of the work Glendale does and we’re pleased to be continuing our strong partnership with Stockport Homes.

"We want the tenants to feel proud of their gardens and communal areas and we’re looking forward to continuing our work to make green spaces places for local people to enjoy."

Customers will also have access to information about services in their area through a portal which provides details on when work is scheduled to take place and has been completed.

Stockport Homes and Glendale have worked together for the past decade. Chair of the board at Stockport Homes Robin Burman said: "We are looking to forward to continuing to deliver excellent greenspace services to meet customers’ needs and at the same time support our wider social, economic and well-being activities, through local employment and training opportunities, support to environmental improvements and community health and well-being activities."
