You may not be aware but weeds are a problem in Sydney. Why is it such a problem? Weeds are plants that are not native to the Australian bushland and are known to decrease the biodiversity of native flora and fauna. Weeds disrupt the growth of native plants and in turn remove the niches of our precious native animals.
