Grass cutting

Wet grass

What grass do we cut?

We cut the grass on land owned by the highway authority, this includes verges next to footways and roads, as well as central reservations and sightlines at junctions. We don't cut privately owned grass next to footways and roads.

When do we cut the grass?

Highway verges in rural areas are cut twice during the growing the season, usually June/July and then September/October. Verges in towns and villages are usually cut between May and October. Unfortunately, we can't give specific dates for when we will cut the grass as it depends on weather conditions and how fast the grass grows. Trunk roads are cut once a year. A number of verges have rare or endangered species of flora/fauna and here the grass cutting is tailored to suit. These are marked with wooden posts with a picture of bluebells.

Why are grass cuttings not collected and removed?

The cost of collecting and removing the cuttings would be too high and as the cuttings mulch down this helps suppress re-growth.

Can I maintain a grass verge near my property?

No, because of the possible risk of injury to both yourself and passing traffic and pedestrians.
