Weed spraying schedule

We carry out weed control on some land, including roads, pavements and footpaths. We spray herbicide up to three times a year, between March and October – most areas only require two treatments per year.

We will only spray an area if it needs it. The work is dependent on the weather – we do not spray when it’s windy, raining or too hot. Our teams start early in the morning, so you might not notice them.

It takes two or three weeks for weeds to die off after we spray them. During this time the plants will usually show signs of yellow discoloration.
