As seasons change, we acknowledge and appreciate the nature around us. With Autumn bringing some of the most noticeable changes, it is easy to forget amongst the orange hues and fallen leaves, that general upkeep of outdoor communal areas is important, no matter what the season.

So how do we keep our common areas presentable?


First impressions

For shared accommodation and commercial buildings, the surrounding gardens and greenery  and walkways will be the first thing people see when they visit. So you want to make a good first impression – especially if your are re-letting your property.

Certain properties are vulnerable to fly-tipping and the longer waste stays there, the more damage it causes and tenants it repels.


SPS provides:

  • Removal and disposal of rubbish
  • Waste collection and disposal
  • Removal of hazardous waste
  • Pest control


Don’t hit a wall

Vandalism, such as graffiti, is unfortunately one of the quickest and easiest ways to damage a property. It is, however, possible to remove and doesn’t necessarily lead to long-term effects. Left there, however, it devalues even the most attractive of properties and again, deters potential tenants or buyers.

If vandalism is a common occurrence, for either vacant or occupied properties, you may consider more advanced security measures to avoid this.

Cameras/fencing are great ways to deter intruders.
