Annual laneway pruning and weed control
Monday 9 June 2014

Weed control
Weeds on footpaths, traffic islands, kerbs and laneways are controlled during this time of the year using the chemical Glyphosate Biactive. Glyphosate Biactive is a non-volatile soluble liquid product with non-selective herbicidal activity against weeds and grasses. Glyphosate Biactive is effectively neutralised on contact with the soil and does not provide long term weed control.

nullAnnual laneway pruning
The annual laneway pruning program will commence in July. The city will prune or remove vegetation that is growing within the laneway or overhanging into the laneway at:

  • fence lines, a clearance of one metre above ground level
  • up to 4.2 metres above ground level, a clearance of 200 millimetres out from the fence lines
  • vegetation that is higher than 4.2 metres above the ground will be pruned to remove deadwood, as required.

To exempt your property from the weed control or pruning process, please advise the city in writing by Friday 27 June. Send your address, contact details and requested exemption to or City of Subiaco, PO Box 270, Subiaco WA 6904, or contact the city on 9387 0942.
