Hi! The English site is only a beta for now and still has many errors (especially in names and locations).
We are working hard to fix them and making more content available than ever before so expect constant updates.
The City of Reykjavik takes care of mowing all public parks, along highways, and all other city land.
We mow all grass on city land, public parks, next to urban highways, and on the grounds of all Reykjavik primary schools and preschools. We do not mow private lawns and encourage residents to familiarize themselves with lot boundaries.
Contractors take care of mowing along urban highways, after a public tender in collaboration with the Icelandic Road and Coastal Administration. We plan to mow the areas four times over the summer.
Staff of the Landscaping Division takes care of mowing public parks—for instance in the parks of Laugardalur, Hljomskalagardur, Klambratun, Grundargerdi, Austurberg, Seljatjorn and Maedragardur at Rofabaer. They mow weekly.
Contractors and staff at the City Land Service Center mow other areas, such as in residential areas and the grounds of primary schools and preschools. We plan on mowing these areas three times during the summer.
We mow 113 hectares along urban highways and a total of 46 hectares in public parks. Mowing in other areas, such as in residential neighborhoods and school grounds, covers more than 312 hectares.
We, therefore, mow a total of 471 hectares of grass in 10,470 mowing areas.
You can track the progress of the mowing in the City Viewer. There, you can see which areas have been mowed, and you can also bring up the last mowing evaluation and the number of passes with the mowers.
