Gardens team

Crocuses at Manor Hall

The garden services team operates one mobile team and several other teams based at many of the halls of residence and the precinct; covering much of the University estate.  This involves maintaining a diverse and exciting range of properties, including: Royal Fort Gardens, Burwalls, Goldney Hall, Clifton Hill House and Manor Hall.

The Horticultural Manager has overall responsibility for the team and instructing external contractors.

Our work

Much of the work is undertaken “in house”; however, when certain specialist jobs (e.g. major arboricultural work) are requested, Gardens and Grounds will project manage the work, utilising specialist contractors.
