Frosts had a one year maintenance contract to cover the interior works, which was carried out on a weekly basis and consisted of:

•  Watering the plants.
•  Feeding the plants between the months of April to October.
•  Leaf cleaning to remove dust and dirt.
•  Checking moisture levels on all plants.
•  Removing any dead or dying leaves.
•  Checking for pests and disease and using appropriate control methods.
•  Turning the trees in the atrium area pits to encourage even distribution of growth over the year.
•  Cleaning and pruning of the atrium trees twice a year.
•  Cleaning up all mess created (if any) before leaving site.
•  Monthly management review meeting with client.
