Mowing and Spraying Program

The Agriculture and Environment Department is responsible for mowing and spot spraying along municipal roads and weed control in hamlets, parks, cemeteries, waste transfer stations, and gravel pits. Wheatland County operates a unique system which allows for simultaneous mowing and spraying.

Agriculture staff will begin mowing grass and spot spraying weeds of all municipal roadsides in mid-June. The following schedule gives you an approximate time of when the mower/sprayers will be in your area. The mowing and praying uses the same map as the graders do in the winter. To determine which division you are in, see the Grader/mower Divisions Map.
