Weeds in public spaces can cause a nuisance and create real safety issues. For example, on the UK’s transport network, weeds can obscure warning and direction signs, obstruct visibility for drivers, disrupt tarmac and clog drains which leads potentially to dangerous driving conditions. Weed growth can not only make an urban area look untidy and run down, but it can also create a real hazard by disrupting and raising walking surfaces and sports areas, creating trip points and generating remedial engineering work downstream.
