Grass and vegetation

Hedges and shrubs

We maintain shrubs and flower beds on Guildford Borough Council owned land, including parks and open spaces.

We are also responsible for maintaining and cutting the shrubs, flower beds and hedges on roadsides and pavements on behalf of Surrey County Council. This work will normally be carried out between September and February, avoiding bird nesting season to safeguard protected species.

This form will guide you through reporting a hedge overhanging on the highway and causing an obstruction.
