Helping Kier Beat Marestail -

Some of the toughest weeds to eradicate are aquatic Marestails and its land equivalent Horsetail. Spraying with herbicide is never an effective solution on its own for an infestation and other methods have to be deployed.

Kier Homes’ housing development at Bourne, Lincolnshire was faced with a particular problem of Horsestail growing up through the tarmac footpath on their site and called in HIS to sort the problem to enable them to move to have the site signed-off by the NHBC.

HIS used a combination of a root membrane and herbicide to control the infestation and the development site is now signed-off.
