Some weeds are extremely tenacious and can push up through tarmac, causing cracking. Controlling these weeds reduces the need for expensive maintenance on roads and pavements.
Our weed spraying programme also aims to eradicate problem plants, such as ragwort, giant hogweed and Japanese knotweed. Because ragwort is toxic to certain animals, known problem areas are sprayed twice a year as a controlling measure.
Please let us know if you spot:
- cracking of either the road or pavement with weeds growing up through the damaged area
- noxious weeds.
Report noxious weeds or problems on roads and pavements
Do not try to kill or remove noxious weeds yourself as they can pose a serious health risk.
