Mowing & Mulching

Roadside mowing
Roadside mowing is a part of the Integrated Vegetation Management of weed species and will follow a yearly rotation. In addition to roadside mowing, landowners may request brush mulching along the municipal right-of-way within their land. Mulching is limited to one blade width from the municipal right-of-way and will include chemical control for two years. A map is provided to support the annual rotations that the IVM crew will follow for selected divisions. These programs are available free of charge to assist with small areas and along the rights-of-way.

Brush Mulching
Brush mulching is completed along municipal right-of-ways during the winter months to control suckering and spreading of undesired vegetation. Ditches are cleared to the edge of the right-of-way to improve visibility for traffic, reduce snow catch, and control the spread of tree stands.
