Your garden

GardenIf you have a garden as part of your tenancy with us, it is your responsibility to make sure it is maintained.  It’s important that you do not let your garden become overgrown or untidy.

We know many people experience problems with maintaining their garden and this can be anything from struggling to cut the grass, to letting unwanted items become an eyesore to not removing dog mess.

We are here to help. We won’t be turning up with our lawnmower but we know lots of people and organisations who may be able to help.

Got rubbish to get rid off?

If you need to get rid of unwanted items North Lincolnshire Council will remove up to 3 large items each year free of charge. You can arrange a collection either via their website or by ringing 01724 297000.

Also they have various recycling centres where you can get rid of unwanted items or waste, most of which will be accepted at no cost to you.

In addition, if you have some old furniture that you want rid of, instead of storing it in your garden or binning it, try our Choose to Reuse service. We'll collect free of charge and best of all, your furniture will be reused by someone else who might be in need of it.

Need help with your garden?

We also offer a handy van service and we are happy to do most small tasks (decorating, joinery, garden work including fencing). There is a cost attached to this but check out the web page to find out more.

Require further help?

If there is anything else we can help you with, contact us as our team of Housing Officers and Tenancy Support Officers are on hand to offer support and suggestions. Feel free to contact us.

If you don't maintain your garden

Because we want your neighbourhood to be as clean and tidy as it can be, we'll keep a look out for gardens that are in an untidy condition. If we spot one, we will come to visit you to discuss the condition of your garden and ask you to complete tasks to improve your garden.  We will work with you but if your garden does not improve you need to know that we might have to take further actions such as:

Don't let it get to this stage though - we want to work with you, not against you. If you have concerns, get in touch with us straight away.
