Weed Control

 

Weed control

While Council does conduct and organise weed control and spraying programs on public land from time to time, land-owners are also encouraged to take responsibility for the control of weeds on their own property and adjoining roadside.

NO WEED SPRAYING REGISTER

Should you wish to be on the "No Weed Spraying" register due to health reasons or because you wish to maintian the property yourself, you may telephone (08) 8551 0523 to be included on the register. 

We take this issue seriously and welcome any additions to this list.

During a weed spraying program the "No Weed Spraying" Register is handed to our contractors and staff to ensure that the registered properties and adjoining areas are not included in the spraying program


WEED CONTROL ALTERNATIVES

ON A SMALL SCALE
  • Hand pulling
  • Pour boiling water directly onto weeds
  • Use a direct Weed Killer applicator (not spray)
  • Lay any type of cardboard onto garden area, overlapping for no gaps, then thickly top with bark chips. Lasts for years.
ON A LARGER SCALE
  • Mow frequently
  • Slash property frequently
  • Keep up fertiliser to encourage growth of the plant you desire
  • Stock grazing e.g. poultry, alpacas etc.
