Grass cutting, shrubs and weeds

Hedges and shrubs

We maintain shrubs & hedges on Guildford Borough Council owned land. These include our parks and open spaces, residential areas and communal gardens. We also maintain some shrubs and hedges on behalf of Surrey County Council.

Hedge cutting is generally carried out between September and February. We are unable to start our hedge cutting programme until bird nesting season has ended. Bird nesting season is from March to August.
