Maintenance cycles

Council has a team of staff who maintain our streets on a full time basis, delivering verge mowing services to the community. Verge mowing is undertaken on a 20 working day cycle from October to March, and a 40 working day cycle from April to September.

If the verge has not been maintained according to the verge maintenance cycle, please contact Council using the online request management system at the button link below.

Verge mowing enquiry

No Mow Program

Residents may request that the verge adjacent to their property is not mowed by Council. The process to opt out of the verge mowing is as follows:

  • The owner of the residence that the verge is adjacent to must contact Council via email council@innerwest.nsw.gov.au, telephone 02 9392 5000 or in person at a Customer Service Centre requesting to be placed on the 'no mow program' or by clearly indicating that they wish to maintain the verge themselves.
  • The perimeter of the verge site will be marked by Council with a small 'no mow' logo on the footpath or kerb
  • The verge site will be added to the 'no mow' program log and maintenance of the verge is undertaken by the resident
  • If, in the future, the resident changes their mind, they can request Council to be taken off the 'no mow program'. Council will then recommence maintaining the mowing of this verge.
