Grounds maintenance

Apart from individual homes and gardens, Selwood Housing also own other areas of land within our communities which we look after. The management of the grass, trees, hedges and shrubs on this land is called grounds maintenance.

John O'Conner, our new contractor, is delivering grass cutting and other services across our communities. They are an experienced contractor, working with a number of housing associations, councils and other organisations.

Following a period of wet weather and the bank holidays in May, John O'Connor will be extending their working week to include Saturday's as a short-term measure.

Online schedule

John O'Conner has designed a dedicated website where you can find out when they're due in your area.

Grounds maintenance form

For any grounds maintenance queries or concerns, please complete our form below.


We are responsible for maintaining trees on our communal land, to ensure that they do not pose a health and safety risk to members of the public. Our policy is to protect our existing trees wherever possible so that works are only carried out if a tree is dead, dying, diseased, dangerous, likely to cause damage to property or is inappropriately located. You can read our tree policy here.

We will only treat trees within our customer's gardens that are deemed a health and safety risk, or that are causing damage to property. We may charge our tenant for any work we undertake.

As a Selwood Housing customer, if you are concerned about a tree on our land, or within your garden please let us know using the form below.

Do you have a question?

If you have any questions about our grounds maintenance service, please send us your question via the form below or call us on 01225 715 715.

We will first check if the land or feature in question is owned by Selwood Housing. If it is not, and the land is within Wiltshire, you can report your query to Wiltshire Council via the 'MyWiltshire' app or via their Wiltshire Council website.
