Council programs contractors to carry out a set number of park mows per annum. The mowing program is spaced across the year and takes into consideration grass growing rates. Therefore there are more frequent mows during the time of the year when the grass mores quickly and less frequent mows during periods of the year when growth slows.
Mother Nature doesn’t always stick to those timelines however and sometimes Council and the Contractors can be caught out. Fortunately the Annual Mowing Program can be adjusted if unforeseen circumstances demand it.
There are different contracts and conditions for differing areas of grass. Grass along side roadsides can be on a different contract to park mowing contracts and therefore may not be mown at the same time as each other.
The mowing contractors have descended upon Bellvista, Arbour and Bells Reach over recent days leaving the area looking tidy once again. Freshly mown parks and roadside areas make for a better environment for all and improves the look of the whole area. The Contractors do a great job.
