Garden maintenance for council tenants

If you have your own garden, you're responsible for cutting the grass and hedges, pruning trees and keeping the borders tidy.

Responsibility for boundary fences and hedges

When you move into your home, we'll tell you who's responsible for looking after hedges and fences.

If you're responsible for a hedge next to a footpath or ginnel, you must maintain both sides and make sure that the hedge doesn't cause an obstruction.
