We are responsible for cutting the grass on the land we own e.g grass verges, parks, town centres etc.
The grass cutting season runs from mid March until early Novemer. The frequency of cutting depends on the area and type of land.
What we cut and how often
- General grass cutting - we try to cut the the majority of grass areas about once a fortnight.
- Amenity area grass cutting - areas such as parks, war memorials and town centres are cut about once a week.
- Specialist grass cutting - areas such as bowling greens, cricket wickets and golf courses recieve specialist cutting once a week.
- Rural verge grass cutting - rural verges receive two or three cuts a year depending on growth rates, with additional cuts at road junctions.
Removal of clippings
- The majority of grass clippings are not removed. This is because the clippings are relatively short and mulch down quickly which slows down regrowth. Raking up, loading, transporting and getting rid of them would increase cost.
- Cuttings on paths or hard surfaces that represent a hazard are brushed or blown off and distributed over the grassed area.
Please note: this schedule dependant on weather conditions and some cuttings may not run in times of heavy rainfall.
