Welcome to Cropper Grounds Maintenance

About us

Established in 2001 as a family owned and run business, Cropper began by offering grounds maintenance services to suit the specific needs of North Staffordshire schools. The business has been built on foundations of reliability and quality.

Our Services

Testament to this is the growth year on year of contracted business, the high level of customer retention, a constant investment in staff training and machinery, expansion of the services offered and the addition of hospitals and commercial premises maintenance.

Contact us

From the outset, Cropper make an initial site visit with one of our contract managers allowing them to see the grounds first-hand and review your various needs. Following this visit we tailor services to suit your requirements and compile an efficient schedule and cost proposal to suit your budget.
