Assisted gardening scheme

You are here

Ipswich Borough Council tenants have an obligation under the terms of their tenancy agreement to keep the garden in a tidy and manageable state. The assisted gardening scheme is intended to help only those tenants who, through infirmity, are unable to do this themselves and where they have no one else to help them.

How to apply

Make an application online via the pink button below. If you need help with this please call in to the Customer Services Centre.

About the service

The service can provide:

  • a grass cutting service up to nine times a year;
  • a hedge trimming service once a year.

The scheme does not include:

  • weeding;
  • maintenance of flower borders or shrubbery;
  • clearance of grass cuttings.

Please note: If you are requesting grass cutting you must ensure the grass is clear of obstructions when our gardeners call. It is not part of their job to clear away toys or garden ornaments.

Our gardeners will not cut grass where pets have fouled the area.
