Boulevards are the strip of public land between a private property line and the street or sidewalk. 

Property owners are responsible for maintenance of the boulevard bordering their property

As in most municipalities, maintenance of the boulevard between your property and the street or sidewalk in Colwood is the responsibility of the property owner. This includes keeping grass trimmed and clear of litter and waste. We're grateful to all the homeowners, businesses and school property owners who help keep Colwood looking great.

Please contact the City before considering any modifications to the boulevard adjacent to your property. It's usually not possible to allow plantings or structures due to underground utilities such as water, hydro, or gas lines. The City must be able to access these areas for maintenance and installation of services and infrastructure.

City staff are responsible for parks, boulevard gardens, and roadside mowing

Mowing of parks and selected roadsides and streetscapes is scheduled regularly throughout the summer months.

Crews schedule spring parks mowing as early as possible, but with rapid grass growth and/or wet conditions, it can take a few weeks to finish the first round of mowing.
