Weed control

About the weed treatment process and how weeds alongside roads are treated and managed in your area.

We treat all kerb lines adjacent to carriageways and within the road channels (adjacent to the kerb). Treatment is also carried out to the back of a footpath where a building or wall is present however, we do not treat the weeds if the back of the footway is a verge.
