Staying on top of the weeds

Staying on top of the weeds

The Parish currently controls weeds in our Parks by utilising a system produced by Weedingtech, which is an herbicide-free weed control system.

The system uses hot water with a product called Foamstream, made from natural and sustainable plant oils and sugars derived from potatoes, maize, wheat and rapeseed oil, and all materials used in the manufacturing process are non-GM and from sustainable sources. Although Foamstream contains less than 0.001% palm oil, it is certified as sustainable through the GreenPalm programme run by the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil ('RSPO'). A premium, palm-free version of Foamstream will be launched in due course.
