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.

New grounds maintenance contractor confirmed

We recently shared that we would be moving to a new grounds maintenance supplier. We can now confirm that the new contractor is John O'Conner. From January 2023, they will be delivering grass cutting and other grounds maintenance services across our communities.

John O'Conner are an experienced contractor, who work with a number of housing associations, councils and other organisations. They will be delivering the last grass cut of the season this month (Nov), so you will start to see their staff and vans out and about.

Please contact us if you have any queries or concerns.


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.

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 website.
