Verge Maintenance

Leicestershire County Council - The 2019 grass cutting season is underway!

The urban grass cutting programme commenced on Monday 1st April. The programmed frequency of cuts will be a continuation of the previous season and we have programmed to undertake a minimum of 6 cuts.

The rural grass cutting start date is provisionally programmed to commence on, or around, Monday April 22nd. The tractors will work their way round the County carrying out a single 1m swathe along straight roads and cut further back at junctions and bends in the road. It takes 6 weeks to complete each cut of the County and we have programmed to carry out 3 cuts this season.

The grass cutting webpage is www.leicestershire.gov.uk/grass-cutting and includes an interactive map displaying cut date information. Please use this map to find out when the grass verges in your village are being cut! We aim to be there within 5 working days of the date shown.

Did you know? We don't cut areas where daffodils grow for the first 2 cuts, if we mow daffodils too soon they won't grow back next year so they are purposely left until the leaves turn yellow/brown.

The FAQ section on the website answers the most common questions; however, should you have any further questions or queries please send them to customerservices@leics.gov.uk
