Grass Cutting

We cut the grass on all land owned or managed by Mendip District Council (between March and October) and it will be cut approximately every three weeks. Council field and meadow areas are generally cut twice a year. For health and safety reasons grass cutting is not carried out when we experience extreme weather conditions. We may undertake an additional cut in the winter if weather permits.

Land owned/managed by Mendip District Council includes:

  • Verges (rural verges are usually cut by the Somerset County Council)
  • Sponsored roundabouts
