A weed can be defined as any plant growing in a place it is not wanted. Weeds are opportunistic plants that compete with your lawn for space, water, nutrients and sunlight. A thick, vigorous, healthy lawn is your best defence against weed invasion. A dense stand of turf can compete successfully with weed seedlings for light and nutrients thereby minimizing weeds within your lawn. Weed invasion can be kept at bay with a lawn care fertilization program and proper cultural practices.
Homeowners who demand fewer weeds must resort to a program or application which includes the use of herbicides. We offer the following services included in most of our programs to control weeds.
We offer two solutions:
Pre- emergent grassy weed control – applied before weed seeds germinate (corn gluten meal products) applied in the spring or late summer as needed. Post-emergent broad leaf weed control
- applied when weeds are actively growing in the spring summer and fall.
Dandelion before FIESTA application
Dandelion sprayed showing visible signs of distress. 24hr after FIESTA application.
FIESTA™ is a fast acting selective bio-rationale herbicide. Developed by Neudorff North America for broad leaf weed control such as danelions. It is made from naturally occurring Iron (Fe) that has been chelated to form FeHEDTA. It works as a selective weed control herbicide and will not kill the grass it is sprayed on when used properly. It’s been proven and provides good results on many different types of weeds.
- it works extremely fast and control results are expected in less than 48 hours!
- it is spot applied rather than blanket sprayed
- it is odourless and orange in colour!
Crack and Crevice:
Unsightly weeds can grow in the most hostile environment like cracks and crevices within sidewalks, driveways, mulched cedar beds and stone landscaped areas.
The government agency that regulates herbicides (the PMRA) is very clear that any product that is used to kill weeds needs to be registered under the Pest Control Products Act. It is illegal to sell or use an unregistered product to kill weeds. We utilize only commercial grade registered products sold to licensed operators to control weeds. They are always applied at the appropriate times to achieve the best results.
