    The most fun you can have doing weed control

    Published on 20 February 2019, Wednesday, 7:59 PM

    Did you know you can use a flame thrower to control those weeds?

    In what has to be one of the most fun ways to get rid of scrub and gorse, brush, weeds and prunings, an LPG gas torch will burn off unwanted vegetation in no time.

    Farmers and vegetable growers might prefer this kind of weed control as it is often an environmentally-friendly option when compared to using dangerous chemicals that can leach into the soil or water table.

    Naturally, flame throwers are not toys and require serious care during use, including gloves, hearing protection and eye protection.

    One of the most important tasks you must do before using a flame thrower is to assess any risks in the area. This could be nearby structures, vehicles, open grassland or forest areas.

    You will also need to make sure you know how to use the apparatus correctly, so ask for a quick tutorial in store before starting the job.

    Common sense is key, but if you are unsure about using flame to deal with weeds, talk to the experts when you pick up the equipment from Kennards.
