How Does Your Garden Grow?
We get the sunshine, then the rain, followed by sunshine, then more rain and before you know it the weeds, grass, shrubs and brambles that appear from absolutely nowhere, have put on a growth spurt in your garden.
It can be difficult to keep up with the ‘triffid’ like performance some plants put on in growth at this time of year, but we do need to be mindful of pedestrians. If the plants in your garden are encroaching onto the public footpath it means it is time to trim and prune the summer growth, as families with children and pushchairs, residents in wheelchairs or motorised scooters, could be restricted from accessing the pathway. It is also worth taking a look to see if there are any brambles or sharp plants that could cause harm to somebody passing by.
If there are shrubs and trees on Council land that are causing an obstruction, you can report these through on the following website.
