London in Bloom Professional Services

London in Bloom has recently undertaken an assessment of a major London Borough's Housing Grounds Maintenance Service. The aim of which was to provide a third-party validation of the services being provided by the Grounds Maintenance provider. Each site/estate was visited and a grade given for each (Bronze, Silver, Silver Gilt and Gold) and a London in Bloom certificate as authentication. London in Bloom provided an overall report highlighting the areas of success and also where improvements could be made. This not-for-profit service is now available across Greater London with proceeds going to the charity.
