Hackney Homes grass switch

Not-for-profit organisation Hackney Homes - which works in partnership with the London Borough of Hackney Council to manage council homes and amenity grass in Hackney - has switched from mulch mowing to cut and collect in the borough's 266 estates.

The move was an effort to improve its grounds care service and to upgrade its Audit Commission accreditation from two star to three star, which is potentially a route to higher government funding. The organisation bought nine Etesia ride-on mowers - two Hydro 124DN models and seven BLHP's - from P Tuckwell's of Colchester, Essex.
