Across Dumfries and Galloway, DGFirst manages and maintains 1,200 areas of ground and open space.
It was agreed in the council's budget in March that grass in rural cemeteries would be cut three times a year.
"Our Council has to make savings of £27m over the next three years. It is absolutely essential that we prioritise where we need to spend money and where we can save money. Reducing or stopping grounds maintenance on little used areas is an obvious example of a savings opportunity."
– Councillor Stephen Thompson, chairman of DGFirst Management Committee
