Removing weeds

How we remove weeds

We usually treat weeds with herbicides that are safe to use without harming humans, animals or insects.

We carry out spot checks and assessments across the borough to decide what areas need treating.

For the treatment to be effective there must be weeds visible above the ground as our spray treatment works only on contact with the weeds directly. Once treated, the weeds should start to die off within 10-14 days.
