Grass cutting and ground maintenance

We maintain roadside grass verges, hedges, shrubs, flowerbeds and weeds on council-owned land.

Why we are cutting grass less often

We are mowing grass in our parks, greenspaces and highways less often to help boost biodiversity as part our net zero carbon goal for 2030.

View our grass cutting look-up to see if the grass in your area is cut fully, partially or picture framed.
