    Due to poor weather conditions, The City's licensed contractors will now undertake weed control on road reserves during August and September.

    An application of glyphosate will be applied to road kerbs, traffic islands, footpaths, and shared use paths for the eradication of annual and perennial weeds and grasses.

    This herbicide is being applied in accordance with the product requirements, as is required by WA State and Australian Government legislation.

    This treatment will not be carried out adjacent to properties where residents have registered to be included on the City's non-spray register.

    Further details may be obtained by contacting the City's Project Manager, Craig New on 9273 3500 or council@nedlands.wa.gov.au.

  • Annual Bushland Spraying Program - Update

    CLOSED: This project has concluded.
    supporting image

    Environmental weeds cause erosion, alter water availability, change soil nutrients, increase the likelihood of bush fires and change the vegetation communities within bushland areas. The annual spraying program is being undertaken by Contractors from July through to October 2019 to control environmental weeds in the following bushland areas:
    • Shenton Bushland
    • Allen Park
    • Hollywood Reserve
    • Birdwood Parade Bushland
    • Point Resolution Bushland
    • Mt Claremont Oval Bushland
    • Mt Claremont Community Centre
    • Swanbourne Estate

    The City will be focusing on the control of bulbous weeds, and annual and perennial grass weeds using the herbicides listed below:

    • 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.

    For further information, please contact Vicki Shannon, the City's Environmental Conservation Coordinator on (08) 9273 3500, or email vshannon@nedlands.wa.gov.au.
