Grass cutting and grounds maintenance
On Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council owned land
Please note: weather and other factors may affect the frequency of these operations.
Begins in late March through to October.
Up to 8 times per year on an area-to-area basis.
We cut bowling greens, in season, up to 3 times per week.
Fine turf up to 10 times per year.
Some areas have a complete cut once a year.
Others will have pathways cut through them. This is to aid walkers and to encourage biodiversity and sustainability.
Winter and summer bedding
Newcastle-under-Lyme is a floral borough. Our teams work hard to design and maintain these so you and visitors can enjoy them throughout the year.
Planting takes place in spring and autumn.
We maintain these on a winter and summer programme.
Hedge cutting on borough council owned land
This operation does not start until the end of July. This is to protect nesting birds.
If hedgerows are causing a hazard to pedestrians or road users we will trim them before this.
