Verges and naturestrips

1. Overview

Council cuts residential verges from late winter to early summer and depending on seasonal factors.

Verge mowing cycles up to 31 December 2023:

  • 1 cut between 3 July and 29 August
  • 1 cut between 1 September and 10 October - refer to verge mowing schedule for exact dates per suburb. 
  • 1 cut between 11 October and 20 November
  • 1 cut between 21 November and 29 December

Council also cuts roadside verges to address fire risks and line of site obstructions for motorists at the end of spring. Council liaises with Department for Infrastructure and Transport, who are responsible for cutting grass on median strips along main roads.

Cut grass is not collected but left on the verge.

Additional cutting outside of this program is only undertaken in cases where high growth creates risks for traffic or pedestrians.
