  • Thank you for your report. sorry for the delay in my response. I have heard back from our Network Officer (who deals with utilities) and have had this response - 'after Thames Water Utilities finished their work here they layed top soil on the verge, and no it wasn’t grass seeded but the utility companies do not have to seed, unless it is clear that the area needs it, a verge at the back of a footway would not qualify for reseeding.'
    hope this info helps. regards.
