Garden maintenance

If you cannot look after your garden due to age or disability and have no one to help, then you can apply to the Council for help. East Ayrshire Council runs a scheme to help tenants who cannot manage their own garden.

The garden maintenance scheme is available to tenants who are over 60 years of age or tenants who have a permanent physical disability. Tenants applying on the grounds of disability will be asked to provide documentary evidence from their GP or other medical practitioner in support of their application.

If anyone aged over 16, and under 60, is living with you and is not a registered carer for a member of the household, they would be expected to do the gardening, provided they are able to do so.

If tenants are in receipt of Housing/Council Tax benefits the service is provided free of charge. If not in receipt of benefits there is currently a charge of £30 per annum which is payable after all services have been provided.
