Caretaking &Grounds Service

We look after an area of Torfaen the size of several hundred football pitches. We cut the grass, look after hedges and trees, deal with litter, fly-tipping, and a lot more. It’s a large area to cover so if we’ve missed something you can let us know by contacting us.

Our Schedule

This is a list of some of the jobs we do on the land we look after throughout the year. Footpaths and roads where we have houses and flats are looked after by Torfaen council. They also deal with everything related to bins and recycling. You can let them know about any problems by calling 01495 762200.

All year round we litter pick and deal with fly-tipping on our land and in communal areas.

Each week we clear bins and carry out safety checks at the shops and play areas that we own. We also visit our retirement schemes to inspect and clean them.

Once a month we clean and inspect common areas in our blocks of flats. If you see the team out and about please let them know if you have any worries or concerns. Let the team know if someone in your block is not removing their waste correctly.

Trees

We inspect all the trees on the land we own throughout the year. This does not include trees in tenants’ gardens. If you are worried about a tree please let us know, and we will inspect it. If any work needs to be done we’ll arrange it for when the trees are dormant or at another suitable time.

Our Year

October

Depending on the weather we might carry on cutting the grass until mid-October. We start our winter shrub bed maintenance and include leaf blowing and clearance.

Our wildflowers will have started to die back, so we cut and clear the area for replanting the following year. This work may continue into November. Snow is more likely so if needed our team will also carry out some snow clearance and gritting in some areas.

November

We carry on with our winter shrub maintenance, deal with leaves, pick litter and generally keep Torfaen tidy.

March

Our winter shrub and hedge maintenance end this month as we enter spring.

Mid-March is when we usually start our grass cutting. The grass in and around your homes is looked after by either us or the Council. The Council also cut most of the verges along the sides of roads.
