Minimising our Impact on the Environment
With our workplace being set in the great outdoors, Bawden Managed Landscapes is all too aware of the fragility of planet Earth and strives to limit the impact of its activities on the environment wherever possible. Achieving accreditation under the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System made us look long and hard at how to make a difference and work with clients to deliver environmentally sustainable grounds maintenance and landscaping. Our green initiatives are rolled out across all works completed; this includes in the areas in and around Wiltshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Dorset and more.
The initiatives we take include:
Biodegradable oils are used wherever possible within our vehicles, plant and machinery.
Non-organic waste, including paper, cardboard, plastic, glass, metal, cans, printer cartridges, oil and tyres, is all separated and appropriately recycled.
Grass clippings, shrub and hedge prunings, leaves, pond weed and smaller woody material from our maintenance works is composted to produce excellent peat-free soil improver, which we re-use in our clients' shrub and flower beds.
Recycled materials are used wherever possible in our landscaping activities.
We offer free conservation gardening advice, covering subjects such as planting to attract bees, butterflies, birds and wildlife, water conservation and management, SUDS and erosion control.
We constantly review ways of reducing our carbon footprint, including monitoring and limiting vehicle journeys, and encouraging our staff to highlight ways in which we can do better.
All grounds maintenance activities are carried out by fully trained staff who consistently work to the British Standard for Grounds Maintenance - BS 7370. Accreditation to British Standards ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 is maintained by the team here at Bawden Managed Landscapes, and we are a full member of the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI). The association supports and inspires its members, promoting their professionalism and the benefits of using a BALI Contractor such as Bawden.
