War on bindii, let’s get back to basics

Visiting our play spaces and ovals recently, many of our grassed areas are being overrun by spring weeds like bindii. While a relatively easy treatment at the right time of year, if left to grow they form prickles which quickly makes our green spaces unfriendly for kids play as well as sports and also seeding next years weed spread.
We need to re-focus our priorities to ensure resources are provided for council to properly maintain out assets.
Some clumps are easily removed by hand as I did in this pic today.
For those with home lawns, I wrote an article back in 2014 on how to treat these types of weeds at home during September for an amazing summer lawn.
