Wildflower cutting regime

These areas will be cut once a year at the end of the growing season and all the waste will be collected. Please note that timings are subject to weather conditions and will fluctuate slightly each year.

Long grass areas

These have been introduced slowly, starting with some small areas at Frimley Lodge Park, Frimley Green Recreation Ground, Mytchett Recreation Ground and Camberley Park.

We have also included parts of verges, roundabouts and areas around the base of trees. Long grass areas are being installed as trials, and can easily be reversed and included within the normal cutting regimes at any time if needed.
