Countrywide Grounds Maintenance
Graham Burfoot Email
Countrywide has been established in Wiltshire since the early 1990's and has grown steadily to the major supplier of grounds maintenance and landscaping services in the area that it is today. The depot, situated 2 miles from Wootten Bassett, is ideally placed to service its core territory of Swindon, Wootten Bassett, Chippenham, Corsham, Melksham, Devizes, Marlborough, Faringdon and Cirencester. Over the last six years popular demand has lead to expansion to neighbouring towns to the South West, Trowbridge, Westbury, Warminster and Frome, where Countrywide now has a significant presence.
Currently six mobile teams work across this broad area of South West Central England, looking after a broad range of grounds and gardens for schools, NHS, local authorities, housing associations, care homes, retirement complexes, retail, business and factory premises, parish councils, parochial church councils, facilities companies and utility companies. They are fully trained, equipped and motivated to meet all the challenges that can be thrown at them, offering an excellent standard of service across the board.
Equipment choices are such that we can offer every grass finish from cylinder to rotary, collecting to mulching across most sized areas, cutting widths varying from 2 to 16 feet. Hedges can be lovingly crafted by hand or tackled with a tractor and hedge flail according to type, requirement and budget. Working, where necessary, with a broad range of carefully selected partners (relationships developed over many years) we can offer a broader range of services including tree surgery, soft landscaping, planting, landscape design and playing field renovation.
In the winter one of our 4x4's is converted to a gritter, equipped with a snowex spreader, snow tyres and chains to give it optimum gritting capability in all conditions that we have experienced to date. In addition no snow bound car park has yet defeated our formidable fleet of tractors, front and rear snow ploughs and/or front loading bucket complimented by the 8ft bucket of a Telehandler.
The business has been managed locally by Graham Burfoot for the last six years. Initially agriculturally qualified, he has a wealth of experience and know how in addition to a broad business background that equips him to empathise with our customer base. He knows what a good job looks like and he knows how to optimise value. Over 60% of his team have worked for the business for over ten years and he endeavours to secure sufficient winter work to minimise dependence on summer seasonal recruitment.
Please feed back how pleased we have been with all the work which Countrywide have undertaken for us. Sometimes you can take a risk when you change suppliers but for us, moving to Countrywide has been a very positive change, your grounds men always work hard, are flexible to work around the children and leave the grounds looking so good that I have had lots of positive feedback this year from our staff and neighbours which is always nice to receive so I want to pass this back to you and the team.

The visit went very well yesterday and our Country Manager commented on how good the hanging baskets and wall planters looked.

Countrywide has the vote of Chiseldon Parish Council. Not only is the company cheaper than any other contractor we have asked for quotes, but it does a magnificent job in all it is contracted to do. The cemeteries, recreation ground and the children’s play area have never looked better. We will certainly consider using the company again in the future.
Clerk to Chiseldon Parish Council
Although I have only been on this site at Wavin, Chippenham for 4 months, it has been my pleasure to use Graham Burfoot and his team for all of our grounds maintenance work.
Whenever we have wanted anything, i.e. a quote or some special work Graham and his team have been quick to respond and have given us a first class service. His team are friendly and hard working and have always completed the tasks set out for them in a timely and professional way which has left a good impression on us all here at Wavin. I would have no hesitation in recommending Graham and his team to any other prospective clients.
