The City of Bunbury relies on each person maintaining the verge at the front or side of their property. Verge maintenance by Council is limited to pruning of street trees. Any further improvement is by the property owner and adds to the aesthetics of the property.

It is not possible for Council to control weed growth by mechanical means, so where they become a problem weeds along footpaths and kerbs are sprayed. The chemical used is glyphosate, which is a non-residual that kills the weed by absorption through the leaves and transferring to the root system.

Every endeavour is made not to spray verges that are well maintained, but sometimes this inadvertently happens. If you wish, your verge can be added to a list of properties not to be sprayed.
The City of Bunbury undertakes tree planting to parks and streets annually.

Planting is undertaken during the winter months - see our Winter Street Tree Program.
