Horticulture and street cleaning

Report grass that needs cutting

*Under the current circumstances regarding the Covid-19 outbreak, please note we are working with a skeleton crew and only undertaking critical Street Clean works to ensure the safety of our communities.  All horticultural work has been suspended until further notice.  We thank you for your understanding at this time.*

To report an issue you need to be registered for a My Account. This will save you having to re-enter information and allow you to track the progress of the report. 

We have the responsibility to maintain the grass on land that is owned by the Council.

16 grass cuts are carried out every year. 14 of which are on a fortnightly basis during high season - March to October. The remaining 2 cuts take place during the winter months, when weather conditions allow.

Grass cutting may sometimes have to be postponed due to adverse weather conditions such as heavy rain, frost or drought.

Most grass is maintained at a height of 4-8cm, using both pedestrian and ride on mowers.

Due to the cost and environmental factors, the cuttings are disposed of evenly across the site. However, footpaths and hard surfaces are cleared of grass cuttings after mowing.

Report grass that needs cutting by using the button below. You will be asked to sign up for, or sign in to, your account before completing the form. 

  1. Grass not owned by the Council

    We sometimes cut grass on land owned by Yarlington Homes, Highways or Parish Councils. Any work on behalf of these organisations must be authorised by them first. Requests need to be made to the organisation, who will then contact us directly if the grass is to be maintained.

    You can contact:

    • County Highways on 0300 1232224
    • Yarlington via your “My Yarlington" account or their website

    All other private land is the responsibility of the landowner.

Thank you. You response is appreciated.
