Long-awaited and much-needed rain has fallen across Redlands Coast recently, bringing with it a surge of green grass.
Redland City Council has increased its mowing schedule across the City, with staff and contractors working extended hours, including rostered days off and weekends, to mow the more than the 5.6 million square metres of public space that make up our schedule.
Other areas in south east Queensland are facing the same issues with mowing, with grass growing exceptionally fast due to the ideal weather conditions of recent rain and above-20-degree night temperatures.
Council is taking advantage of every fine day to reduce the grass in local parks and reserves, noting that to avoid damaging the grounds after rainfall, parks need to be dry before mowing.
Council appreciates residents’ patience as we work hard to keep up with the growth.
