Grass cutting

Our StreetCare teams operate a cycle of grass cutting across the borough that usually takes around three weeks.

Bad weather can change our schedule.  This year has been a challenge following a very wet March that held up mowing followed by a warm April that saw rapid grass growth. The recent hot weather has stopped grass growth in most areas but we are expecting a rapid regrowth when the rain does arrive again.

If the grass needs cutting in your area, please bear with us, we will be with you as soon as we can.

Why don’t teams pick up the grass afterwards?

We operate to industry standard methods when carrying out our grass cutting operations. This involves leaving grass where it falls once it has been cut – because it is difficult to recycle it makes sense to let it break down in to the soil.
