In this week’s video update we’re in Yarrambat (Nillumbik, Victoria) starting a multi-month improvement project. The land owner here has had an ongoing battle with capeweed, and asked us to come in to help remove the capeweed and replace it with something more visually appealing and useful.
While we wait for the weeds to appear (once we get some autumn rain), we’ve started by knocking down some existing weeds (dock, wort and spiny rush species), and getting the lay of the land. From here we’ll wait to knock the capeweed on the head nice and early, and then get a quick growing pasture in to out-compete the capeweed.
If you haven’t got your capeweed management sorted out for the year ahead, we’re currently offering free, customised capeweed management plans – head over to our facebook page to find out more.
