The ACT Government is responsible for mowing approximately 4,655 hectares of irrigated and non-irrigated grass in urban open space, sportsgrounds and at the urban edge. There is a base mowing fleet of 73 mowing units which are supported throughout the mowing season by contract mowers as required.
During the peak grass growing periods, September to April, mowing is undertaken on a four weekly cycle for suburbs and every five weeks for arterial roads.
From May to August, as grass growth is very much reduced mowing is undertaken for both suburbs and arterial roads with mowing undertaken as required.
