Work we do

Winter maintenance

Find out more about our winter maintenance programme in Torbay for 2023-24.

Throughout the winter season (October to mid-March) we carry out a host of diverse works in our parks and gardens, ahead of the busy summer season in Torbay. In addition, we tend the sports pitches, public rights of way and pathways during this period too.

In our parks and gardens, works carried out vary from soil preparation for bedding and weed maintenance to hedge flailing and everything in between. Smaller trees and palms are also attended to at this time with dead/decayed or moribund stems/branches removed as part of the continuing cycle of removal and plant replenishment. Our lead gardeners are horticulturally trained and take great pride in their work, helping to provide a great environment in Torbay for residents and tourists alike.
