Hedges not cut properly for the last 2 years.

20 mins and the council workers left?! job done. -NO. Hedges have not been cut properly in the last 2 years. Usually they are no more than 1/2 the height of the fences, when cut. But you need a ladder to reach the tops now. Even the pretty flower bed in the corner has been left and now only weeds and grass grow there. What a shame.

  • The hedges still remain uncut. Very messy and untidy. Will only get worse the longer they're left.
