Green space

Our Green Space service works hard throughout the year to ensure all Helena's green areas are welcoming and usable.

Launched in 2010, the dedicated task teams prune plant beds and clear hard surfaces, maintain trees and shrubs, along with managing communal grass areas, removing litter as well as cutting and edge trimming.

Part of Helena Propertycare and based at Sutton Fold, the team also encourages customers to be more involved in making a positive change to their own environment too.

This includes an older resident’s service which provides monthly home visits so customers can continue to safely enjoy their outdoor space. An annual contribution is applicable in most cases.
