Surrey based Grounds Care Group has completed the acquisition of Wallingford-based Green & Tidy Landscapes Ltd. The deal reinforces the firm’s position as a market leading provider of grounds care and landscaping services, strengthening its offering in the Thames Valley region.
As well as Green & Tidy’s client base, Grounds Care Group will also take on all staff members, equipment and facilities, including the Green & Tidy depot in Moulsford, Oxfordshire. The additional infrastructure will enable Grounds Care Group to expand its geographical reach and expertise in a range of grounds care solutions and services, including gritting, grounds maintenance, invasive weed removal, tree works and soft landscaping.
Green & Tidy will continue to trade under its own name across Oxford, Milton Keynes and the wider Thames Valley region, under their well-established brand, which has built up a reputation for providing quality grounds and tree care since 1987. It will move under the Grounds Care Group brand from November 2021.
The acquisition is part of a growth strategy by Grounds Care Group, which has bold ambitions to further grow its services across the South of England, as Grounds Care Group CEO Adam Brindle explains: “The acquisition of Green & Tidy is a fantastic opportunity and a significant milestone in our strategy to create a Group offering clients the very best landscape maintenance, invasive weed removal and winter gritting services.
“Both companies and our employees share similar values and a devotion to providing high quality grounds maintenance services and a commitment to customer satisfaction, striving for a long-term relationship with our customers. We pride ourselves on our talented workforce, so we are delighted to welcome the new Green & Tidy team to our Group. As a family business we are proud of the growth and success we have achieved and look forward to continuing our journey of expansion with plans for both organic and acquisition-based growth.”
Green & Tidy Landscapes Ltd MD, Paul Gittus, said: “I am delighted that Green & Tidy has joined the Grounds Care Group family. Their professionalism and innovative approach to landscape maintenance, gives them the leading edge with their advanced communication systems, which I believe will bring great benefits to our customers.”
