Developed by innovative Norwegian-based company with more than 35 years’ in the green and agriculture sector, Heatweed® is an award-winning, highly effective and environmentally responsible system in achieving safe and gentle invasive species reduction. Acacia is proud to use the Heatweed® Non-Chemical equipment to provide weed control services across Victoria. We do not sell the equipment.
At 99°Celsius, superheated natural water obliterates a plant’s cell structure, promoting a systemic effect of the roots. After each treatment, the plants grow weaker until eradicated permanently. An average of three or four treatments a year is proven to be enough for optimal results.
Using hot water to rid weeds is not a new invention. The first patent was taken out in the 1880s, but the method could not be used on a large scale due to inadequacies of the technology. Until now. Heatweed® harnesses the power of 100% natural water – the most effective conduit of heat – to distort a plant’s cell structure. Compared to other thermal methods (like steam) where the potential for heat transfer is lower and much of it is lost at the nozzle, hot water offers better control and accuracy, with the added benefit of reduced water consumption.
Acacia embraces sustainable landscaping processes to plan, implement and manage large land areas and sites. Our focus is to conserve and retain ground water, create permeable surfaces, reduce material waste, minimise maintenance, use climate-appropriate regenerating plants and encourage the vitality and growth of natural wildlife. We also invest in renewable energy and carbon insetting where possible.
