West Quay Shopping Centre

Stewarts Office Plants have just, effective November 08, taken on the plant maintenance at West Quay Shopping Centre and we are delighted! Stewarts Landscaping has taken over the grounds maintenance so all in all, the team are keeping busy.

The Interior Plants are looked after every week. We have a dedicated team of technicians who get up early and look after the plants before the shopping centre opens. This service of caring for plants includes watering indoor plants, cleaning, dusting, pruning, feeding and anything else the plant requires to help it flourish. It also includes free plant replacement for plants that become tired, tatty or fail to flourish. Every 4 weeks the team change all the flowering planted containers using something like Anthuriums which has a fairly long flowering period and can stand a bit of tough vandalism from time to time.

The Grounds Maintenance includes everything from grass cutting, weeding, leaf clearance, shrub and border tidying and pruning.

We plan to implement a few changes/improvements to the planting schemes over time, with West Quay's approval of course, but in the meantime, we look forward to a long and successful working relationship with Southampton's best known shopping centre.

Christmas begins!

Strictly speaking it began last week when we delivered four trees to a shopping centre, but the mass decoration of artificial trees starts today, so they will be ready for delivery from the end of November.

Because we are very tightly-staffed the rest of the year, we have recruited an extra Christmas tree decorator... for four weeks only!

Julie has not worked for Stewarts before, but she's well known to me: we've lived together for over ten years!

Debra, who runs the whole Christmas operation with ruthless efficiency, has still got room for a very few more orders, so email her if you want to know more about our Christmas tree service.
