Two companies bought by Nurture Landscapes

Nurture Landscapes has acquired Heritage Landscapes and Truegrit, with both acquisitions due to complete on 30 June. The companies will be integrated into Nurture's regional operations and trade under the Nurture brand, raising 2016 turnover to a forecast £27m.

Heritage Landscapes, based 10 minutes from Nurture's northern office, has 125 landscape maintenance sites and 81 gritting sites that will be serviced from Nurture's Rishton premises. Clients include Vine Property Management, YHCA and many other contracts that are existing clients of Nurture Landscapes.

Truegrit is a pure winter gritting and snow clearance company servicing 967 sites across the UK. The entire team will move from Newbury to Surrey and help spearhead the expansion of the service to all Nurture's existing and future landscape maintenance clients. The deal includes Truegrit's "Frosty" database, which Nurture plans to adopt and use to run its 878 existing gritting sites.

The move follows 11 previous successful acquisitions by the Surrey-based company, run by managing director Peter Fane. It will double Nurture's gritting turnover to more than £5m per annum across nearly 2,000 sites. Combined with Nurture's other regions, winter gritting now accounts for around 20 per cent of total turnover.
