The majority of grass cutting operations will normally take place on a fortnightly basis commencing in April and finishing in October. Due to recent years ‘mild winters’ have started grass cutting earlier than guidelines stated in order to improve our service.
To provide the best service in a cost effective way different machinery may be used dependant upon the nature of the area to be cut:
Area Maintained : Machinery Used / Annual Frequency
General grassed areas :
Rough Areas :
Opertaion: Time of Year / Annual Frquency
Grass cutting may be suspended in times of drought, chemical applications require certain climatic conditions for their effectiveness and in order to comply with the Control of Pesticides Act 1986.
The clippings are relatively short and mulch down quickly which slows down regrowth. Raking up, loading, transporting and getting rid of them would increase the cost substantially.
We know that some people like to cut the grass near their home more often than we do. You should be aware of the possible risk of injury to yourself, passing pedestrians and traffic.
please report any issues with grass cutting using our online form or by contacting us using the details below.

You can contact our call centre, who will record your details onto our enquiry system. An officer will then inspect and rectify the problem if at all possible.
We also have a formal complaints procedure.
