Grass maintenance is a vital component of keeping our housing environment attractive and healthy.

IntroductionStandardsSchedule

Introduction

Grass cutting is an important part of maintaining the appearance and health of our green spaces. Our team follows a schedule to ensure that grass is cut in a timely and efficient manner. 

information

The schedule is subject to weather conditions, especially wet weather and high groundwater levels. In the event of unfavourable weather conditions, grass cutting may be delayed or rescheduled.

Standards

We have two standards for grass cutting – cut and fly, and cut and collect.

  • General needs areas will be cut to a cut and fly standard, where grass clippings are left on the ground to decompose and provide nutrients to the soil.
  • Sheltered housing uses the cut and collect method, where grass clippings are collected and removed. This service is paid for from higher service charges.

Please refer to the schedule below for specific dates and locations for grass cutting. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in helping us maintain our green spaces.
