Cutting is terrible; Your say.
Driving around my local area, they look like rough-cut fields on farms.
Looking further afield, many other green spaces and verges are getting a similar treatment and the visual aspect is terrible, the regrowth effect is equally terrible, turning our greens and verges into what really look like rough pasture.
It appears, too, that the frequency of cutting has increased due to the system being used, and the cutting quality has fallen.
The horizontal rotary cutters are tending to chop the grass and distribute it as uneven clumps, as opposed to the cylinder type which render the grass into finer pieces, very evenly spread over the ground, and cutting closer to the ground.
Imagine any division football ground cut in this manner, horizontal versus cylinder, to play on them would be a nightmare.
Has someone made a decision to replace the equipment based purely on cost as opposed to effective grass cutting, without considering any kind of long term effect? ANTHONY WARREN, Middlesbrough
