Fountain grass (Cenchrus setaceus) and gazanias (Gazania spp.) are declared pest plants.
Council requests that residents pull them out as soon as possible if they are found on private property. Please dispose of them in your green organic waste bin.
Council workers continue to remove these plants from our public areas, including verges and roundabouts. We are planting non-invasive species once infestations are eradicated.
For help in dealing with these pest plants see below:
See the Department of Primary Industries and Regions for more information on identifying and controlling weeds.
