Berm maintenance, Kaipara District Council

Berm maintenance

Recent changes to services means that we now rely on the goodwill of homeowners to mow their residential berms.  This change helps to keep costs down and avoid any rates increases that would be required to continue the service.

Berms are used to separate people's houses from the roads and manage stormwater.  Caring for your berm provides added street appeal to your property and neighbourhood.  Regular mowing of berms is also important to reduce the risk of fire and vermin as well as providing safe access by reducing any concealed hazards.

Our contractors will continue to mow public reserves.
