Back to all reports

The bushes and shrubs outside my house have not been maintained for years. There is a drain cover which is not easy to access.

As you can see the drain cover is almost invisible. The shrubs and bushes look awful and there are trees beginning to grow from the area. The fencing is broken and rotten and generally the area looks awful and is a complete waste of space. As my drain sometimes gets blocked the area has to be cleared of debris before any work can begin adding to the cost of the work as they charge by the hour. This is not acceptable. If the area was maintained I believe people would not use it as a dumping ground for their garden waste.
