Klepp municipality ordered a report on how to manage weed control in urban green areas without use of chemical methods. Measures need to be taken already in the planning and in the establishment phase, when soils should be free of weed plants and with as little weed seeds as possible. Cleaning for weds needs to be followed up very methodologically. A standard for how much weeds that can be tolerated before treatment should be given to each specific area. In the report, we refer to different alternative methods of weed control. Choices of methods should be according to the specified area, the standards and with concern for the users of those areas. The treatments must be safe and efficient. Weeds removed with gas burners, treated with hot water or eventually with other suitable equipment. We emphasize that success depend on good planning and education of the persons that shall realize the weed control.
