It is important that you maintain the garden of your rented home, this includes the front and back if you have both.

Your tenancy agreement will explain all your responsibilities for looking after your garden.

Some of these responsibilities include:

  • Keeping hedges at the rear of your home at a height no greater than two metres at the rear and one metre at the front
  • Avoiding planting trees close to boundaries, drains, or your home, as this can damage the property
  • Not erecting or removing hedges, walls or fences without our approval first
  • Keeping your garden in a clean and tidy condition
  • Consulting your neighbours before lighting a fire or bonfire
  • Not erecting a shed without our approval first.

If you are an older person and are struggling to maintain your garden, your local Age UK may be able to help you.
