How we treat
Weed control is carried out by a specialist, qualified contractor.
Using a suitable herbicide, similar to ordinary garden weed killer that won’t harm humans, pets or the environment, weeds are sprayed providing the weather is not wet or windy.
Conditions should be dry and calm when spraying the weed killer and wet weather may delay the treatment or make it less effective in some areas.
Weed applications are undertaken mostly via knap-sacking (use of a backpack containing the specialist herbicidal treatment) or through a mobile applicator. Choosing which method to use will be based upon local conditions and site-specific risk assessments, along with general risk assessments and method statements to ensure safe working practices for both the operatives themselves and the general public.
