This year's annual plan delivered by contractor Balfour Beatty Living Places, outlines how services will be delivered over the coming year and identifies how the council will make savings within the public realm revenue budget.
Grass cutting and street cleansing will cost Herefordshire almost £2m this year, a significant element of the annual expenditure on highways in the county.
Cabinet member for infrastructure Cllr Philip Price said: "We’ve had to tailor the resource levels to meet the budget but we will continue to keep the highway safe by cutting the visibility splays, carrying out weed spraying and maintaining the trees.
"We have improved the efficiency of the remaining resources through better deployment and scheduling, and by setting clear, productive targets. Despite this we need to reduce all grass cutting frequencies from the current seven times a year to three times a year, although rural verge cutting will remain the same.
"We will also look to develop community grass cutting schemes so that communities can set their own priorities."
