Our customers

We work with big and small.

From the smallest of replacement parts to a standard garden machinery service through to tracking down bespoke one off equipment orders we can help
you with your every garden and grounds needs.

A major part of our work involves cutting and removing harmful weeds from our flood defence assets, as this type of overgrowth can be extremely stubborn to cut and remove. It can also weaken our flood defence structures. i.e. flood banks, head walls. So our machinery needs to be working in top condition at all times. In recent years, we have used Arb & Grounds to service and sharpen all our chainsaws, brushcutters, hedgecutters and lawnmowers – keeping them at their best at all times. The guys at Arb & Grounds have given us great service, second to none back-up and very competitive prices. They can never do enough to help us maintain our large range of equipment

Ian Thomas ( Environment Agency )

Arb & Grounds service and repair all our lawnmowers. As a football club, our pitch is our pride and joy. We have to ensure it is impeccable at all times, not only for aesthetic sake, but to stay in-line with FA regulations. Because of this, we only entrust our equipment to the very best… Arb & Grounds. In fact, our club’s groundskeepers were recently honoured at the Football Association’s 2017 Groundsmen of the Year Awards. As the saying goes… you’re only as good as your tools.

Phil Varney ( Belper Town F.C. )

It’s important that our playing field is kept trim for our pupils, so we use our lawnmower equipment fairly frequently. Arb & Grounds service/repair all of our machinery. As a small primary school with a limited budget, we are extremely careful with money. Arb & Grounds are not only great at what they do, but provide very fair prices. We look forward to working with them in the future.

Nathan Dawson ( Rowlatts Hill Primary Academy )

Our club dates back to around 1875 (before even the Wimbledon Tennis Championships were founded) and we are widely regarded as one of the premier racquets clubs in the UK. As we host international tennis tournaments, our courts must be maintained all year round; which means that our machinery needs to be maintained all year round too. But to always achieve the best cut and stripe finish possible, the cylinder roller lawnmowers we use require specialist expertise to service and repair them. That’s why we choose Arb & Grounds.
