Grass cutting and ground maintenance

The Service Aim

We maintain the grass, flower beds, shrubberies, hedges and trees on Council owned open spaces and recreation grounds.  In addition to this we cut some grass verges on behalf of Suffolk County Council, at the side of the highway of our towns and larger villages. Grounds maintenance is monitored and reviewed regularly to ensure that a high quality, efficient and cost effective service is provided.

Note that we are not responsible for the maintenance of rural highway verges. These are maintained by Suffolk County Council Highways.

What does the Grass Cutting and Grounds Maintenance Service Provide?

  • Cutting and otherwise maintaining grass
  • Pruning and caring for trees to keep them healthy and in a safe condition
