Council cuts verges from late winter to early summer (depending on seasonal factors), and will also consider further cutting post summer if needed. Cut grass is not collected but left on the verge.

Additional cutting outside of this program will generally only be undertaken in cases where high growth creates ‘line of sight’ risks for traffic or pedestrians, and can be assessed by logging a request online or calling us on 8397 7444.

In some locations, poisoning of weeds and grass growth is a more sustainable approach.

Hover over the lawn-mower icons to see when verges will be mowed in your area.
The dates below may vary subject to weather.


For bushfire risk areas and recognised biodivesity sites, a seperate verge maintenance program is delivered.

Council liaises with the Department for Planning, Transport & Infrastructure who undertake mowing of main road median strips.

We thank the many residents who maintain their verges.

Landscaping a verge

A verge or naturestrip is usually the section between:

  • The property boundary and the road

  • The footpath and the road
