Extremely overgrown green area

Reported via desktop in the Obstruction category anonymously at 18:32, Fri 25 August 2023

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4928193.

There is a green area right in front of my house, unfortunately it has overgrown so much to the point that it is causing the following: - obstructing view from my from window due to very tall shrubs. - weed such as brambles have become too leggy where the thorny stems are poking out the green area and damaging the paintwork of cars parked next to it. (last week, I actually had to snip some of them cos they were scratching my car so badly!) - it's visually unappealing due to it being so unkempt for so long.

On 16th June 2023, I noticed that the council sent someone to actually sort the green patch. However, I believe they did an unsatisfactory job because they only trimmed a very small area (encircled in one of the attached photos. What should have been done was to actually sort the whole green area.
