We commenced work with the Horowhenua District Council on the 1st of July 2015 and are excited about the opportunities to become part a wonderful community.
Our contract covers the full spectrum of services involved in the management and care of all Parks and reserves within the district including horticultural works, sports parks services, arboriculture works, rubbish collection, mowing, and cemetery services.
While this is very early days in our tenure the start-up has been very positive one with a tender process that involved far more collaboration and agreed risk sharing than we have ever experienced throughout our years of tendering. This process included a scoring model that placed a realistic value on relationship and attributes with price not being measured until we had proven we could work with the Council.
Services we Provide:
Parks Management and Maintenance
Includes mowing and horticulture maintenance for annual, perennials, re-vegetation, roses, shrub gardens, hedges and specimen trees. Also includes asset maintenance, playground maintenance, litter bins and reporting.
Sports Park's Maintenance
Includes care of 10 sports parks, 3 grass cricket blocks, turf management, renovations, mowing, irrigation and asset maintenance.
We are responsible for the day-to-day care and upkeep of all Horowhenua’s cemeteries. As part of this service we provide grave preparation and presentation, public liaison (with Funeral Directors, family members, cemetery visitors etc.) We endeavor at all times to treat this most sensitive area of our business with the respect, tact and sensitivity it deserves.
