Maintaining lawns and gardens in spring

Wednesday 05 Sep 2018

As a tenant, you are responsible for keeping lawns mowed, edging done and weeds under control at all times – unless there are other arrangements stipulated in your lease.

With spring here, it is imperative that you tend to your garden more regularly, before it becomes overgrown.

Now’s the ideal time to remove dead wood and give plants a general, all-over prune before they go back into their growth cycle.

If your garden becomes unsightly, you could find yourself in breach of the terms of your lease for failing to keep your garden in good order and nobody wants that.

Local councils also have the power to impose fines for properties that are not maintained in a neat and tidy manner, particularly when a neighbour complains.

If you are finding it hard to make time to do the gardening, or if circumstances make it difficult temporarily, we can provide a list of suitable companies who can mow and weed your gardens.

Just give us a call and we can talk about it.
