Spring clearing in Steenbok

Ivy Garden Services clearing weeds, grass and alien invasive species growing among the indigenous plants along the path at the Harbor entrance of Steenbok Nature Reserve.  
Examples of a few troublesome weeds that are not list on NEMBA legislation but can cause unique problems in this  area are;
Fumaria muralis and Raphanus raphanistrum – troublesome weeds that smother other natural vegetation.

Echium pininana – massive seed production is responsible for hundreds of seedlings popping up near the tennis courts amongst indigenous vegetation.  They are being removed manually as they appear.
