We are responsible for maintaining over 9 million square metres of grass verges, hedges, shrubs and rose beds and our grass cutting is generally carried out between the months of March and October. We do not cut grass that is privately owned or on properties and estates that do not belong to us.
For issues with council-owned trees or trees/vegetation growing from private land onto a highway, road or footpath, please see our Trees and vegetation page for information and to find out how to report this to us.
You may notice that clippings have been left after we have cut the grass. This is because we do not collect clippings. Clippings are left distributed evenly over the verge and will compost down back into the soil.
How do I find out when a particular grass verge will be cut?
You can check which grass verges are cut and when a cut is next due by visiting Continental Landscapes Ltd website in the External links section. Continental Landscapes Ltd are our contractor for grass cutting in Leeds. The website provides access to a map which shows individual plots included on the schedule and a search function to find out when the last visit took place and when the next visit is due. Please note that this can vary by up to two days from the date shown.
Please note that Continental Landscapes Ltd are unable to answer enquiries from residents. Should you need assistance please contact us using the Contact us form on this page.
