Some enthusiastic weed killing going on in Brookmans Park
« on: April 11, 2013, 01:52:03 pm »
I wonder how long it will take the grass to recover?  I suppose spraying weed killers saves on the cost of having to strim?

Bit odd if it is weed killer as the plants could draw up moisture from the ground below, depending on the design of the underside of the container, and therefore risk the plants.

Perhaps I am wrong. Not sure what is being used.

You are not wrong, David. The type of weedkiller that would have been used is a translocated type
that is absorbed through the foilage and down into the root sytem - it would not affect the soil.
Also I think you are right about the strimming cost saving  -  I wonder if this will be passed on by
the contractor to the council? :icon_jokercolor:
