Weed control

Your streets banner

We aim to control weed growth around areas such as parks, verges, town centres and roads.

We are not responsible for removing weeds that have grown on private land or properties that are not owned by us.

How often are they treated

Weeds are treated twice annually in late spring and autumn.

Once treatment has been applied, weeds can take up to two to three weeks to have a visible impact.

Our teams start early in the morning so you may not always see them and our programme is dependent upon the weather as treatment is not carried out during wet and windy conditions.

Report it

Invasive weeds

If you notice the presence of either Japanese knotweed or Giant hogweed on public land, please do not attempt to remove this yourself. Please report it to us by requesting weed control, providing us with:

  • the location
  • type of species (if known)
  • amount of weeds present

The treatment required is dependant on the species and will be carried out as required throughout the year, we will continue to monitor until this is resolved.
