What we use

Weeds are treated with a suitable herbicide that is not harmful to the environment or to animals and can be safely used in open areas.

The products that are used are strictly controlled and reviewed by DEFRA (Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs). Full COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) assessments are undertaken prior to any use.  More information about the manufacturers and products used in the weed spraying programme.
