Pretty weeds, prickly weeds, allergy weeds - we are definitely overrun with weeds this year.
With the rainy winter, the city knows that the weed fight this year is going to be particularly challenging and we want encourage everyone to help us keep Apache Junction beautiful by keeping your weeds under 10 inches tall and trimming excess growth on those fast-growing desert trees and shrubs.
The city also wants to share a friendly reminder that all property owners and/or occupants are responsible for their half of any alleys at the rear of their properties and all the way to the pavement on front and side yards.
Although this is also wild flower season, once the flowers are gone, it is best to clear the area because the dried out flower plants are not only unsightly but are fire fuel.
There are multiple methods for weed eradication and trimming. Please use care when using chemicals and setting fire to weeds is not recommended. Recently, a garage was set on fire while an owner was torching their weeds, so please be careful, especially with temperatures on the rise.
Later this month, city officials will begin notifying owners and/or occupants of weed and overgrowth related issues. We very much appreciate any attention you can give to your landscaping now.
