When will the communal grass be cut / mown?
We aim to cut the grass on Futures land every 5-6 weeks between March and August.
You might have noticed changes to the way we’re cutting the grass in the spaces we look after. We’ve moved away from a ‘cut and collect’ system, where we collect and dispose of grass clippings, to a ‘cut and fly’ system. This is where the grass is trimmed in the same way as before, but rather than collecting the clippings and transporting them elsewhere to be disposed of, we leave them where they fall to decompose into the ground.
This might mean that the grass doesn’t look as neat and tidy initially, and we know that this might be disappointing. However, there are real benefits to this new system in the long term, for our customers, the environment and us as an organisation.
