Countrywide grounds maintenance established its Cumbrian depot in 2009 with regional managers Richard and Ross Watson who have between them over 50 years grounds maintenance experience.
Countrywide Cumbria provides grounds maintenance services to over 60 schools, colleges in the region and all the sites of the University of Cumbria, with all our staff being DBS/CRB checked.
We currently operate in South West Scotland, Cumbria and North Lancashire our sites include retail parks, motorway service stations and farm parks.
We use the services of Countrywide Grounds Maintenance and would advise that we are fully satisfied with the service and work they undertake as part of our annual grounds maintenance contract.
The staff are always professional in their approach to work, friendly and pleasant and very approachable when we ask for advice.
We would conclude by adding that the contract offers good value for money and we would have no hesitation in recommending Countrywide Grounds Maintenance for the purpose of grounds maintenance.
Headteacher, Derwentvale Primary School
We have been using Countrywide Grounds Maintenance since April 2012, to look after our communal grounds consisting of approximately 3.5 acres.
They carry out grass cutting, hedge cutting, tending to borders and shrubbery, sweeping of hard standing areas, weed-killing, leaf collection, strimming and pruning of shrubs.
Since they took over our contract, their work has been of a consistently high standard and we have been delighted with all aspects of the work they have undertaken. Their workers are always polite, obliging and complete all tasks efficiently and diligently.
I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone.
Company Secretary, Scotby Grange Management
Since awarding the contract to Countrywide Grounds Maintenance the appearance of the grounds and the condition of the sports pitches has been much better.
The team are very professional and do a great job with no fuss. The sports markings are done well and in a timely fashion and the team understand the needs of the school well and respond to these.
In terms of following the rules regarding conduct on site, these are always followed by the team without question.
I would happily recommend Countrywide to other school and organisations.

Countrywide took over Grounds Maintenance contract at the beginning of April this year. They continue to deliver not only good value for money but an excellent service.
We at Newlaithes Junior School are constantly impressed with Countrywide’s customer service and their rapid response to our requested, one in which they developed an area of the school field into an orchard with a variety of young trees and further developed an area into our garden allotment with fruit trees and pathways.
We would never hesitate to recommend Countrywide services to other schools if the need arose.
Business Manager, Newlaithes Junior School
Countrywide Grounds Maintenance have been looking after the school grounds since April 2010 and we have very quickly built up a positive working relationship. I have found them to be extremely professional, trustworthy and good value for money.
The staff are always polite and helpful and report in to school reception before going on site to complete their tasks. The staff are very flexible and have always responded in a positive way if asked to change their routine to fit in with the demands of the school.
They have been particularly helpful at finding solutions to ongoing issues with both the school playing field and hard play areas.
I would recommend them unreservedly.
School Business Manager, Inglewood Junior School
We have used Countrywide Ground Maintenance for the last twelve months and have been very happy with the service provided.
Nothing has been too much trouble and they have fitted the work around the school and pupils. This has sometimes meant working at the weekend.
We look forward to retaining their services for the next twelve months.
