Verse of The Day
“Tena ko te mahi tohu a Ihowa no tua whakarere, a ake tonu ake, ki te hunga e wehi ana ki a ia: tona tika hoki ki nga uri o nga tamariki; Ki te hunga e pupuri ana i tana kawenata, ki te hunga hoki e mahara ana ki ana ako kia mahia.” (Psalm 103:17-18)

About weed control

Dune weed plants - from top left: Marram (photo - J Barran), Exotic ice plant and Purple groundsel.

Exotic species such as kikuyu grass, buffalo grass and South African ice plant dominate many Northland dunes. These weed species actively invade foredunes and are not as effective as the native sand binders spinifex and pingao in repairing storm-damaged frontal dunes.

When undertaking a dune restoration project it is very important to plan and maintain a weed control programme. If this is not done then all the effort of planting can be wasted!

These guidelines give some recommendations for weed control on foredune and backdune areas. This includes different methods that can be used, and advice for successful weed control. Please contact the Northland Regional Council for specific weed control and dune restoration advice on Freephone 0800 002 004.
