Mercian Housing association signs Greenscape for estates role

Greenscape has won a £190,000 contract to look after the grounds of 125 housing estates in the West Midlands and Shropshire.

Work will include mowing lawns, pruning, trimming, landscaping, tree surgery and cleaning and maintaining car parks for Mercian Housing Association.

Greenscape business-development manager Phil Greaves said: "We have more than 26 years of experience so we are well equipped to provide a professional, value-for-money service."

Last year, his 50-staff firm turned over more than £1m for the first time since it was formed from a range of services to not-for-profit organisations and private firms across the West Midlands.

Mercian Housing assistant director Jon Down said: "We were impressed by Greenscape's track record and ability to offer high-quality services that offer our residents value for money."
