Project Spotlight: Natural Area Weed Control

Client: City of Gosnells

Period: 2021

UGC Group conducted Natural Area Weed Control throughout multiple bushland reserves for the City of Gosnells, using an integrated method of manual invasive biomass removal, and herbicide application via tanker and backpack spraying as well as Wiping for geophytic weeds, and Cut and Paint and Basal Barking methods to control Woody Weeds.

The reserves required a vast array of control, with concentrations around Watsonia sp., Bridal creeper (Asparagus asparagoises), Gladiolus sp., various annual grasses such as Erharta, Aveena, Bromus and Vuplia and Perennial grasses such as Eragrostis, Kikuyu and couch as well as many other broadleaf weeds that thrive in winter rain such as Fumaria, Vetch and various members of the Asteraceae (Daisy) Family.

UGC Group successfully completed these works in late 2021 on-time and on budget, with an improvement in the conservation value, helping foster natural regeneration of the present flora, and encouraging the natural habitat to flourish once again.
