If you’re a council tenant and you meet the eligibility criteria then you can apply for us to keep your garden maintained for you.
To be eligible you must be a council resident and either:
- Receiving Disability Living Allowance (Care or Mobility Component), Attendance Allowance, Constant Attendance Allowance or Mobility Allowance and have no relatives living in Wrexham County Borough, or
- Part of the Blue Badge scheme run by social services and have no relatives living within the borough
Once we receive your completed application we’ll arrange a home visit to verify the information you’ve given us.
What assistance does the scheme provide?
If you’re a tenant who meets the eligibility criteria for the scheme then we can help keep your garden maintained by providing:
- a minimum of eight grass cuts a year (typically between March - November) on a frequency basis of every six - eight weeks from the date of the first cut
- a minimum of two hedge cuts a year where applicable, hedges are then pruned across the season as required
Hedge cutting will begin on the second grass cut (usually mid-May to early June) as long as there are no nesting birds which would prevent cutting the hedge. If this happens, the hedge will be left until the birds have fled the nest (usually around mid-August) and the hedge will then be cut.
Grass and hedge cuttings are collected and put in your green garden waste bin for you.
