Weeds and invasive plants
We are responsible for weed control on public land, which includes roads, pavements, kerbs, grids (gully), footpaths, parks and cemeteries.
Weeds can affect the overall appearance of our town as well as causing damage to surfaces, buildings and can obstruct drains.
Weed spraying is carried out in the spring and summer months. Once an area has been sprayed, it takes roughly two to three weeks for weeds to die off.
Weeds are sprayed with a low toxicity herbicide (Glyphosate) which can be used safely without harming people or animals, however weeds will show through between treatments.
