Cultivating sustainability and a greener tomorrow

In today's eco-conscious world, commercial landscaping is more than just creating an appealing outdoor space. We all have a responsibility towards sustainability. Whether you are responsible for communal gardens or manage a business property, our commercial landscaping services are dedicated to creating a greener, more eco-friendly environment.

When it comes to choosing a partner for your grounds maintenance, have peace of mind that we prioritise eco-friendly practices for our current and future customers. From embracing battery powered equipment to recycling all green waste, we are committed to minimising our environmental impact while enhancing your outdoor spaces.

It is our goal to create sustainable outdoor spaces. Leaving a positive legacy for generations to come. Let’s explore ways that we can achieve this together.

Choosing Native Plants

You may be wondering, 'Native planting sounds like a good idea, but what does that actually mean?' Simply put, native plants are those that occur naturally in your area and adapt to the local climate and soil conditions. Because they are well accustomed to the environment, they require less maintenance once established. They help to beat off unwanted pests and have a knack for crowding out undesirable weeds.

But that's not all—native plants attract local wildlife, such as bees and butterflies, which not only pollinate the plants but also help to control pesky insects like mosquitoes. If you are looking to add a pop of colour while embracing wildlife, consider native flowers like primrose and honeysuckle or flowering shrubs such as lavender and rosemary.

Water Conservation Ideas

When it comes to watering your plants and lawn we encourage our clients to think of ways to minimise water wastage. Consider drip irrigation instead of sprinklers as they use a fraction of the water. As the temperature starts to heat up, watering early in the morning or in the evening can prevent the water from evaporating before it reaches the roots. Remember, too much water can be just as damaging as it can weaken the plants.


If you are considering paving areas of your communal gardens or grounds, permeable materials like gravel and resin, allow water to drain through the layers beneath it and soak into the soil. Mulching is another technique that conserves soil moisture. By covering the soil with bark, woodchips or leaves it preserves moisture and improve the overall condition of the soil.

Energy Efficient Equipment

Creating beautiful spaces that attract wildlife and enhance the ecology of our local area is all in a day’s work for our team. As a nature-loving, family-run business, we prioritise tools that can withstand the rigours of our work while also being kind to our environment. That’s why we are gradually transitioning to the use of battery-powered tools, such as lawn mowers and hedge trimmers, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and noise pollution.

Waste Management


Effective waste management is crucial for protecting our environment from pollution and contamination. Not only does it have a huge environmental impact, it can negatively affect your image by giving the impression that you are not concerned about issues such as sustainability and reducing carbon footprint. Whether it’s employees, existing or future clients, people are becoming increasingly passionate about protecting the environment and will take this into consideration when choosing to engage with you.

If you are responsible for property management or run a business, you will be aware that waste management is regulated by public health legislation. Choosing an appropriately licensed and insured waste carrier is essential to ensuring that your waste is being responsibly disposed of. At CJ Garden Services, we are fully licensed to handle waste. We understand the complexities of waste disposal and alleviate the burden of this for our clients.
