Garden assistance

gardenWe run a free `Gardening Assistance Scheme` for older or disabled tenants who cannot carry out their own gardening. This includes lawn and hedge cutting between April and October.

Am I eligible?

  • Tenants aged over 75 and unable to maintain their garden due to a registered disability or a medical condition
  • No able bodied persons over the age of 18 living in the property able to maintain the garden.

Those that do not meet this criteria would need to seek assistance from family or a private gardening contractor. However in exceptional circumstances we may use our discretion for tenants under the age of 75.

How to apply for the service?

Please complete the application form or contact the Estate Management team.

We will let you know if you have been accepted onto the Garden Assistance Scheme. Due to the popularity of the scheme, you may be placed on a waiting list. You will be notified as soon as a place becomes available. If you have previously received our garden services, you will have to reapply.
