We are responsible for ensuring that verges along the roads we maintain meet road safety standards.
We carry out weed control twice a year, during the summer.
By law, the weed-killer we use is no stronger than that which you can buy off the shelf at your local DIY store.
For weed-killer to work effectively it has to be applied when there is a period of three consecutive dry days. Otherwise there is a risk of it being washed away by rain.
This means that extended periods of wet weather can affect our weed spraying schedule.
