Weeds deteriorate concrete and asphalt, reducing the lifespans of both roads and sidewalks. Drainage ditches also frequently become clogged with weeds, disrupting the designed flow of water, leaving potentially dangerous standing pools of water on roadways.
We target specific weeds like star thistle and broad leaves in your lawn or pasture to allow more beneficial and aesthetically pleasing grasses to grow for livestock to graze. Many invasive weeds out compete and sometimes actively inhibit the growth of native plants. Poison oak and blackberry bushes are both invasive weeds and spread very quickly.
Not all weeds are bad. We do not recommend killing all the weeds on hillsides because they prevent erosion especially during wet conditions. We feel that selective weed control is essential because it allows us to get rid of weeds which serve no purpose and leave only the beneficial ones.
Weeds germinate at different times of the year depending on the species. Because of this, one annual herbicide application will not be sufficient for treating all of the weeds on your property. The timing of seasonal rainfall will also determine which weeds grow the most each year.
Pre-emergent weed control is done in the fall and winter months. This application halts the germination process and reduces roughly 80% of the weeds from sprouting in late winter or early spring. Post-emergent applications can be done throughout the year but mainly take place in the spring and early summer, effectively killing 100% of existing weeds.
Our selective weed control is done throughout the year depending on which species a customer wants to treat. We have service plans and treatments to rid your property of any unwanted weed species and our state licensed technicians offer free evaluations and consultations to provide you with the knowledge and options to best suit your needs while maintaining a healthy environment.
