Fairy grass an annual problem for Annesley St residents

Each year, fairy grass tumbleweeds picked up by the wind and blown into their yards become a problem for Annesley St residents Daryl Archibald and Bill Parker.

Fairy grass is a problem in the district each year at this time of year.


Annesley St resident Daryl Archibald is finding it hard to visit his neighbour Bill Parker.

Fairy grass from an adjacent vacant block blew into their front yards on the back of high wind this week.

Mr Parker said grass on the vacant land had not been slashed, making fairy grass a major problem.

‘‘It blows across the road and into our yard. There is nothing we can do to stop it,’’ he said.

Mr Parker said it was a problem for him and his neighbours this time each year.
