Countrywide Grounds Maintenance
Unit 5 Shirehill Industrial Estate
Andrew Gilliar Email
With over 27 years of experience within the grounds maintenance industry, Regional Manager Andrew Gilliar has been running the Essex and South Suffolk area since 1999.
With depots situated within Saffron Walden, Basildon, Witham and Ipswich, his teams are easily placed to give maximum local coverage, but with a strong national company in support.
From our depots we cover a wide customer base including the commercial and private sectors. Being a multi site specialist company, with over 800 sites within this area, there are over 110 schools that we look after.
Countrywide believe that the 3 most important factors enabling us to deliver you an excellent service are communication with you the client, consistency, and reliability. Therefore we are happy to work closely you the client. For example, we can schedule certain visits around parent evenings and sports days so that the school looks its best. While also working on the day and during the hours of your preference, and preferably during lesson times when the children are inside as their safety is paramount to us. We do our weed spraying and larger works during the school holidays so as to minimise the risk of injury to staff and children. All staff are DBS/CRB checked and certificates can be provided upon request. We will provide you with the same team of operatives as Countrywide feel that this provides consistency in the level of work.
We have used Countrywide for two years now, after swapping from the local district council.
Countrywide are very competitive on price, which is very important to us as a small school but also provide an excellent service. There is a clear plan of jobs for the year and they are always able and willing to be flexible and offer advice. A win win situation all round for us!

The standard of work carried out by Countrywide staff is excellent - our grounds are kept looking beautiful! Staff are always pleasant, more than happy to give advice and always ask if anything else is required.

Porters Field is looking amazing! Thank you for being involved and contributing to the ‘Estate spring clean’ we carried out in April, this is an excellent example of joint working, not only with Home Group but Flagship. As we saw when we were on site this has made a huge difference to the overall look of the scheme and will hopefully have a positive impact on the community as a whole.
I must say that since the contract has started you have always been on hand to help with queries and to resolve issues directly with customers. I would have loved to have seen you dragging the tree that fell at Hunting Gate into a private owners parking bay dolled up in your suite in the pouring rain….it is certainly a testament to your customer focused nature!
It’s not often we take the time to thank those that have gone above the norm, so….I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your support.
Customer Service Partner, Home Group
I just wanted to let you know how very pleased we are with the two wonderful chaps who have been doing our Grounds Maintenance for the last two visits. We have even had comments from parents and visitors as to how tidy the school looks outside and we are so happy with it, even more so considering the time of year and weather we are having.
So please could you pass on our gratitude to your team.
