Gardening support

Gardening support

We offer a Supported Garden Maintenance Service, to help residents who are unable to manage their gardens and who don’t have relatives who can assist.

Helping you with the garden

We provide the free service, which includes one hedge cut, all year round.

Our team will cut grass to a height of no more than 30mm above ground level no more than once every six weeks. Hedge-cutting begins at the end of nesting season (1 August) and all hedge-cuttings will be removed from your garden.

Anyone wishing to apply for the service will require a full assessment. The service is available to residents of any age who:

  • Have a condition limiting their ability to maintain their garden. Evidence, such as a doctor’s note or benefit payment, must be provided at the assessment
  • Have no support (i.e. family, friends) who would be able to maintain the garden on their behalf
  • Don’t have the means to pay for a gardener.

To apply, please contact our Customer Service Centre by emailing or calling 01376 535400. If you are eligible, you will be told at your assessment and should then contact us to book your first appointment.

Work not included in the service are:

  • Removing grass cuttings
  • Weeding
  • Digging borders
  • Tree trimming
  • Shrub maintenance
  • Pruning
