I always cut the verge outside mine myself, takes 5 minutes if that and looks much better than having grass cuttings left behind. Sadly I'm the only one who can be arsed on my road.

I believe general guidance on verges is to cut them where there is a need for safety/visibility but to cut less often to allow a benefit for wildlife/plants and reduce pollution.

Only just started around here at the top end of Norfolk Park but that's the bits around the flats and not the verges which are cut by a different department.. apparently! The bits they have done so far are also strewn with chopped up litter that should have been bagged before they started cutting.

Yeah, gosh...damn those people and their checking of evidence getting in the way of a needless rant. And damn education for giving people the ability to find out things for themselves.

In Stannington they have been out all last week and today cutting the grass verges. Trouble is they don’t seem to sweep up afterwards.
