idverde is contracted to cut grass within Colchester on a performance basis, meaning that there is no set number of cuts each year but that the grass should always be kept short and well-presented throughout the mowing season.

Colchester Borough Council shrub beds are also maintained on a performance specification throughout the year. Between April and October we will carry out summer works such as weeding and pruning as required for health and safety reasons (such as overhanging vegetation).  From November to March we carry out the more extensive winter pruning works.

Hedges are cut on a frequency basis throughout the year, with the heavier reduction works carried out in the winter months between November and March, and the health and safety pruning of overhanging vegetation between March and October. Frequencies are dependent on the location of the hedge.
