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.
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. If you do notice that clippings are on paths or in gullies please contact us by going to the email link in contact us and filling in the online form, advising of us of the exact location of the problem, and we will send this through to a monitoring officer to deal with.
Why have some areas (like grass banks or large open spaces) not been cut with the rest of the area?
Sometimes areas may not have been cut because they are on a different schedule as other equipment is required to maintain the area. We also use different teams for cutting banks and slopes.
Can I cut the grass verge outside my home?
You can apply to cut the grass or dig the verge outside your home and in order to do this you will need to get a licence from us. You can find the application form in the documents section or contact us on 0113 247 7526.
