Creating and maintaining beautiful, resilient, and sustainable outside spaces, nationwide

With origins dating back to 1973, when it began servicing outside spaces of commercial facilities, Ground Control is now a market-leader and multi-award-winning national service provider of environmentally-led grounds maintenance services, arboriculture work, winter maintenance, and landscape construction, with national coverage.

The company has established itself as a trusted partner for prominent UK organisations including Network Rail, National Highways, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, NGED, Severn Trent, Anglian Water, and The Environment Agency.

The business has diversified its services in recent years and now offers complete start-to-end nature recovery solutions for public and private sector landowners, pioneering a comprehensive, highly disciplined nature-recovery framework, as well as carbon reducing solutions that include EV charger and PV installations.

Consequently, Ground Control has seen its revenue grow from £120 million to £195 million in just three years, with sales this year expected to be more than £200m.

The company has recently secured new funding from Pricoa Private Capital, a leading global provider of financing solutions. The funding will support continued growth, service diversification targets and opportunities to pursue strategic acquisitions in the form of culturally aligned companies that can provide additional customer value.

As a double Queen’s Award for Enterprise winner for its innovative IT solutions, Ground Control will also invest the funding in technology to deliver solutions that drive customer experience and productivity. This will enable the company to have a more significant impact on the industry and assist customers in achieving their carbon reduction and biodiversity goals.

Ground Control unites the best of people, places, and planet to realise the potential of human nature at its best. With biodiversity in decline, Ground Control is dedicated to leading by example through its corporate mission of “create, maintain, sustain”. Ground Control has consistently invested in this mission. Having been fully carbon-neutral since 2020, the business now has plans to achieve Net Zero by 2038.

Ground Control launched the Evergreen Fund in 2020, an initiative dedicating 5% of annual net profits to a £5 million Impact Venture Fund, supporting environmental initiatives and carbon sequestration.

The company became a certified B Corporation in March 2022, showcasing its commitment to the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.
