Parks, Playgrounds and Open Spaces

We undertake routine grass cutting, tree and hedge pruning, and shrub and rose bed maintenance in all areas we are responsible for.

What timescales and standards do we work to?

We carry out bedding planting twice a year; in May and October.

We prune our hedges and trees between September and February in line with best practice guidelines: Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 includes for the protection of certain habitats, and the RSPB sets out best practice guidelines. These state that hedges should never be cut during the bird nesting season (between March and August).

Please note that during extended dry weather conditions, some grass cutting operations may become unnecessary, and continued bad weather may prevent some of our planned maintenance work.

If you notice that grass has not been cut in an extended period of time, you can report grass cutting to the council.

Horticultural standards

We also manage district and local parks. Our mobile gardening teams visit sites regularly to ensure that horticultural maintenance is carried out to a high standard.

Gardening staff ensure that the quality and range of horticultural features are maintained appropriately. These include:

  • Grassed areas
  • Litter collection
  • Flower and shrub beds
  • Hedges
  • Playgrounds
  • Outdoor sports facilities

Our teams also make sure that standards of cleanliness and health and safety are achieved by regular inspection.

We currently manage 63 playgrounds across North Lincolnshire.

With our playgrounds we aim to strike a balance between providing challenging and stimulating play and learning, at the same time meeting current safety requirements. 

Most of our playgrounds cater for two to 12 year olds, although several of our sites provide equipment suitable for teenagers.

With children's safety and enjoyment in mind, many of our playgrounds were updated with new modern equipment during 2009/10 through the Playbuilder Scheme.
