My Garden

If you have a garden with your home, you are responsible for maintaining it and keeping it tidy.

This includes:

  • regular lawn mowing
  • trimming hedges and bushes
  • making sure that weeds, plants and bushes don't grow into neighbouring gardens or on to pathways.
  • keep your garden free from waste and litter and clear up after your pets if you have them.

The responsibility to maintain your garden is the same whether you:

  • have direct access to a garden from your home (such as if you live in a house or ground floor flat) or,
  • live in a flat or maisonette and have been given sole use of a garden area within the grounds of your block.
