    • Metsulfuron-methyl and 2 2-DPA (Dalapon): used to control bulbous weeds
    • Glyphosate: used in conjunction with metsulfuron-methyl to control bulbous weeds
    • Fusilade: used to control annual and perennial grass weeds.

    Signage will be displayed whilst these works are occurring.

    The City undertakes environmental weed control to improve biodiversity values and to reduce the negative impacts environmental weeds cause to the ecosystems, for example they compete with native plants, thereby reducing the species and diversity for both flora and fauna.
