Weed Trial Wednesday 14th February 2020 at Mountsfield Park

Removal of ivy by use of a flame gun.

The grass between the paving slabs has recovered a couple of months after the flame gun treatment. Repeat application of the flame gun would be required for long term weed removal whereas the Council’s routine application of glyphosate and pre-emergence herbicide spray on our streets and within our green open spaces might be applied just once or twice per year.
