Winter Maintenance

D Horne services Ltd provides regional snow clearance and gritting service for private and public services. We offer a planned preventative or reactive service tailored to your requirements complete with 24/7 emergency cover.

Taking information from the Met Office weather site for your location we monitor the situation for the predicted ground conditions and react accordingly. We receive regular updates via text and email from the Met office once the temperature triggers (below 5°c).

We use this information, combined with the service delivery you have requested to forward plan giving you the best option to ensure safe sites for pedestrian and vehicle movement in times of inclement weather. We use all this valuable information to not only forward plan but to also target delivery only when and where required, and this in turn could help to control limited budgets.

As with our ground maintenance service, we have invested in quality equipment and machinery to get the job done quickly and efficiently to a high standard.

Gritting Services

As a team of professional ground maintenance and landscapers, we are aware of the living landscape. We minimise plant damage by accurately placing salt on site using specialist equipment. Planted areas are rarely used for pedestrian access so we can usually provide a winter maintenance service that doesn’t damage plant life or garden areas. When and if required our teams will work through the night to ensure the best service delivery possible to our customers.

Snow Clearance & Gritting

The clearance of fallen snow in car parks and any other publicly or commercially used surfaces for access and safety is a duty of care for the owners of the land. We provide a fully preventative gritting service or use tractor mounted snow blades and front end loaders to move deep drifts, followed by regular gritting to provide on-going protection.
