Edging beds and borders – FREE LOAN FOR PARKS

Following a feature in The Landscaper concerning the declining standard of public parks and open spaces maintenance, GroundsCare Products have come up with an innovative idea.

“The look of parks can be drastically improved by edging the beds and borders.  Groundscare’s Paul Errington explains “ As a result of budget cuts it has been all-but abandoned. No doubt, it is seen as a time-consuming, labour-intensive job but can actually be very quick provided you have the right machine.

“Over the last few years, I have heard more than one facilities management company say that it’s actually still in their brief, but the budget doesn’t allow time for it, so everyone turns a blind eye. Consequently, the edges look scruffy and in many cases the soil has completely filled the gullies so that there really isn’t an edge at all. In such situations a small, lightweight edging machine isn’t the best tool for the job. They are good at maintaining established edges/gullies, but you need a much heavier machine in order  to cut a new edge.”

In order to start getting edging back on the agenda, GroundsCare Products are prepared to offer the loan of a TurfTeq Edger that can quickly re-establish edges and gullies. It will be made available, for a limited time, to Local Authorities with responsibility for maintaining at least one public park. The offer is made subject to certain conditions, the main ones of which are:

·         Maximum period of loan is two full working days. Addition time must be paid for at our standard rental rates.
·         We will deliver the machine free of charge to an address within 50 miles of RG26 3PY. Additional mileage at £1/mile for the round trip. Alternatively, users could collect from us.
·         Each hirer will be expected to make a nominal £25 contribution to blade wear for the loan period. Subsequently, our normal blade wear charges will apply, or users can purchase blades.
·         User needs to insure the machine against loss and damage for the duration of the loan (and subsequent hire if appropriate).
·         Machine will be delivered with a full tank of fuel and needs to be returned with a full tank.
·         The offer is available during the period January thru April 2017.
