We cut the grass around housing estates about 12 times per year.
Meadows, such as those found on the central reservation of the Wrekin Retail Park, Wellington, are cut once during the autumn to maintain the wildflowers growing there.
Our hedge cutting programme starts during the last week of July. This may seem quite late but we need to pay due care and attention to the wild bird population of Telford and Wrekin and make sure we do not disturb them until their breeding season is over.
Shrub bed maintenance
We maintain an area equivalent to 35 football pitches planted with ornamental shrubs around housing estates, roads, parks and other open spaces.
Many of these are pruned between mid June and mid August to stop shrubs and bushes from growing out onto footpaths. They are pruned again between October and March.
