Is substance sprayed not for the pavements?

Has the council got mixed up where weeds grow in Blyth?

It appears they have sprayed a substance around the base of trees, bus stops and the likes of grids and drains which has turned the grass yellow.

Please tell me if I am wrong, but surely this substance should have been sprayed on the pavements.

Perhaps it is a spray to eliminate ants?

Meanwhile, thank you for the wonderful display of daffodils along South Newsham Road, South Beach roundabout and Rotary Way.

Always brings a smile to my face.
