Shrub and hedge maintenance – what we do

Shrub and hedge maintenance in public areas fall under many responsible parties. There are many areas that fall under our responsibility, but there are many areas that are maintained by town and parish councils, housing associations, developers or voluntary bodies.

We aim to maintain shrubs regularly throughout the year, and hedges are cut a minimum of twice a year.

Please note, that shrub and hedge maintenance schedules are weather dependant, growth dependant.

We must not cut if there are signs of birds, bees or wasps nesting.

You can report overgrown shrubs and hedges coming from private property to us for investigation.
