Grass Cutting in Hartlepool

Grassed areas within residential areas will be cut between mid March and November or April to November depending on weather conditions.

  • Areas of low use or profile will be maintained as grass meadow and cut twice a year.
  • Grassed areas which contain naturalising spring bulbs will remain uncut until eight weeks after the end of the flowering period.
  • Wildflower areas will remain uncut until after the first frost were they will be flailed down and left to decompose to add nutrients to the areas.

Generally, we do not collect grass clippings.  However we will continue to minimise the impact of any clippings on the pavement and hard standing areas.

All grass cutting in Hartlepool is carried out by trained operatives using specialised machinery.
