Meet the Team

 

 

Matthew Jervis

Director 

 

Matthew set up E G Grounds Care Ltd with the help of a grant from the Princes Trust in 2006. Initially he set up the business as a sole trader providing regular garden services to residential clients. Services provided included hard and soft landscaping, mowing, weeding and general maintenance duties. The company soon needed to expand by recruiting new grounds staff, and along with the successful award of a business management contract in 2009, the company began to expand into commercial properties. The contract awarded in 2009 was for a large corporate business management company, and E G Grounds Care continue to provide grounds maintenance and landscaping services to this company and this particular site to this day. Through networking, successful development and continually offering a professional, reliable grounds maintenance and landscaping service, Matthew continues to provide high quality grounds maintenance and landscaping services today, 7 days a week and during bank holidays. He has a team of 7 staff which include Grounds Maintenance and landscaping Operatives, property maintenance operative, a health and safety employee and administration. Matthew continues to ensure the quality of his service is continually executed to a very high standard, as quality monitoring is imperative to ensuring clients are satisfied. Matthew enjoys providing the ‘hands-on’ skills regularly, as well as providing all the behind the scenes paperwork and staff management that is necessary to run the business.
