Dead grass and weeds

Reported in the Verges - Damaged by Vehicles category anonymously at 17:26, Tue 10 September 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1763019.

After two hot summers the grass on the Council's verge on my boundary has died. See picture above. It is weed infested and the grass simply will not grow. It needs re-turfing this autumn. It is a complete eyesore and I am not permitted to change it to pebbles as it is not my is yours. I have mown it for 21 years since I moved in! The Council has not maintained it suitably.
