What is Grounds Maintenance?

Information about grounds maintenance, hedge trimming and weed spraying

We currently undertake a wide variety of maintenance jobs throughout the borough. We strive to make Boston a more colourful attractive place to live, work and visit.

Our main job roles consist of grass cutting, hedge pruning, tree pruning, play area inspections and seasonal planting for bedding areas hanging baskets and barrier baskets.

The areas we cover are:

  • Grass verges
  • Public open space
  • Amenity areas
  • Civic spaces
  • Closed church yards
  • Cemeteries
  • Crematorium
  • Sports fields
  • Recreation areas
  • Out door play areas
  • Road islands
  • Pumping stations

How often are the hedges trimmed?

If the hedge is the responsibility of Boston Borough Council it should be cut between July and November to avoid disturbing nesting birds. The frequency is determined by the amount of growth the hedge makes, and it is cut using good ecological and horticultural practice.

How often is weed spraying carried out on paths and hard surfaces?

Highways are sprayed twice a year.
