Shrubs, flower beds and hedge maintenance
Swindon Borough Council maintains ornamental shrub beds and hedges that are situated in public areas including:
- Park areas
- Public gardens
- Public open spaces
- Verges and along the roadside
Shrub beds and hedge maintenance is generally carried out between September and March each year to avoid the bird nesting season (April-August). Generally, this programmed maintenance is sufficient to maintain the shrub beds to good standards and includes weeding, litter clearance and pruning to ensure there is no obstruction to adjacent footpaths or lines of sight along highways.
The following programme shows work scheduled to be carried out between October 2016 and end of March 2017:
If you notice a particular problem that you think we need to address outside these scheduled times, particularly one where vision/line of sight is impaired, please report it to us.
