Grounds maintenance programmed work

Grounds maintenance programme

Autumn/Winter

At the end of October, we will stop our grass cutting operations and start a winter maintenance programme. From November we start mulching leaves in Parks and around Council Housing estates, followed by edging of grass plots and verges, cutting back basal growth and low branches from trees, and generally making preparations for the start of the mowing season in April 2020. All of this will, very much, depend on weather conditions as during snow and ice, we will be supporting our Highway teams with the filling of grit bins and gritting.
