Wet weather grounds city mowing of green spaces in Swift Current, Sask.

Grass getting taller, but city staff must wait for drier conditions

Recent wet weather has posed a challenge for municipal staff in Swift Current, Sask. to keep up with its mowing of public green spaces.

Residents have let the city’s mayor know of the longer-than-normal grass. Swift Current’s general manager of community services explained it’s difficult to mow when grass is wet because it’s more resistant to mowers’ blades and can dull them.

As the grass continues to grow, however, its mass makes mowing more challenging.

The public has been assured the city is trying its best to keep up, but noted green spaces are green and lush.
