Weed Management

The Town aims to minimise herbicide use, where practicable, whilst continuing to maintain the Town’s parklands, urban areas, commercial areas and natural areas to community expectations. The Town currently uses a range of weed control techniques which include:

  • physical/mechanical:
    • brush cutting
    • steam and hot water
    • hand pulling
    • solar radiation
    • mulching (etc.)
  • chemical (herbicides)

Management of weeds currently falls into one of three categories, for further information on the weed management strategy for each area, download the relevant document from the list below
