Grass Mowing


The ACT Government is committed to providing quality open space for the recreational and social needs of the community. Due to the low rainfall throughout 2019, the official mowing season has not commenced.  All mowing in urban open spaces and arterial roads will be conducted on an as needs basis. The official mowing season will be reviewed regularly and commenced if sufficient grass growth justifies.
