Trust M.I.B. Services to do what you need doing

Here at M.I.B. Services we think in this day and age it's vital to give our customers the confidence that they are dealing with a professional business and to aid this, all core staff employed by us are vetted through the DisclosureSCOTLAND and CRB (criminal records bureau).
We are one of only few Edinburgh based landscape maintenance businesses do so. As a family run business, trust is everything to us and we make every effort to assure our customers they are in fact dealing with a, professionally qualified, well organized company and most important, a company that they can trust to carry out their work with no problems.

Japanese Knotweed and Giant Hogweed eradication programmes

Japenese Knotweed, the home owners and development manager's nightmare.

This is one plant or weed you doNOTwant growing on your property, or anywhere near it for that matter.
Japanese Knotweed was introduced to Britain many years ago from the far east and has quickly become a listed pest. It has a very destructive growth pattern and will quite happily reduce your bricks and mortar to rubble. If you spot this in your garden or anywhere near it, call us immediately and we will come to your property and assess it for you.

Green, Sedum and Living Roofs

M.I.B. Services has recently won the contract to maintain the Sedum roofs of 7 newly built primary schools in Midlothian.

I have to admit it felt a bit strange doing mowing and strimming up on roofs !!!!. Before we could even get near the roof, we had to undertake a "working at heights" and a "safety harness " training course, a big thank you to Gavin at Pendrech Height Services for his excellent training course.

We are very pleased to have won this work, it gives us a new market to explore and lots of new opportunities.

Contracting M.I.B. Services to do your job

When you hire M.I.B. Services to take care of your grounds, you can expect to be involved in full with all the contract planning and negotiation, both for your protection and the protection of M.I.B. Services. The contract summarizes the extent of the work that needs to be carried out and whether it is a one-time thing or an ongoing plan of maintenance. We can specify the services for you or you you can give it to us, things such as how the works are to be carried out, when and for how long.

Spring is on her way

Crocus and daffodils starting to shoot is a sure sign of mother nature at work and a change in season's and weather is not far away. If you look out for local communitiy ameniety areas you will see the signs of spring.
New buds on the trees and shrubs just getting ready to burst into life. Soon our dank, bare trees and shrubs will be green and the vast amount of ornamental Cherry trees will be full of gorgeous flowers again and the always welcome, scent of freshly cut grass will be with us again.

Winter Pruning Works

Due to the severe winter snow and generally freezing conditions the whole country has experienced this winter, we are late in getting all our pruning works carried out, but all will be done for the end of February.
