Parks and Gardens Maintenance Planner

Plan your work schedule for the year with Horticulture Week’s month-by-month guide to essential maintenance and management tasks for parks, gardens and grounds maintenance staff.

Jobs should only be undertaken when ground and weather conditions are suitable and will vary according to location and may vary significantly from year to year. While the year nicely divides into 12 months, activities often overlap.
