Sliders Service StandardsAs part of our service to you, our team of keen gardeners maintain communal areas and large open spaces, helping to keep the area you live in, looking its best.

From time to time, we receive complaints about land not being maintained.

We do our utmost to maintain Ocean owned land and often find that complaints regarding poor maintenance relate to land owned by Cornwall Council.
