Weeds are the archnemesis of beautiful, green lawns and healthy gardens. By definition, a weed is considered to be any plant that grows where you do not want it to grow. Weed control exists because even the best-kept lawns & garden beds can fall succumb an invasion of common weeds. Weeds are a common challenge when it comes to home landscaping and even the best gardeners and landscapers continually combat these persistent pests.

Hand Weeding

Manually removing unwanted weeds by hand or with garden tools is the most selective and environmentally friendly way to control weeds. 

ECO Friendly Herbicide

Non-selective organic herbicides can contain such plant-derived concentrates as clove oil and citric acid or acetic acid (vinegar). They are nearly as effective as their chemical counterparts, but they are organically derived and far less hazardous to people, pets, and the environment.

CHEMICAL Herbicide

  • Pre-emergent herbicides are designed for application before the targeted weed germinates, and are an effective preventative method for controlling weeds. Pre-emergent herbicides establish a chemical barrier that don’t kill established plants, but are great when used for preventative measures. The protective barrier breaks down in six to eight weeks, therefore requiring proper timing to be effective. It is a best practice to apply them early in the season. Use caution during application because pre-emergents may harm some plants and turf grasses.

  • Post-emergent herbicides are designed to attack weeds that are already growing. All contact weed killers are post-emergents. It is a best practice to apply post-emergents later in the growing season, after weeds have grown but before they seed.

Mulching

Partially composted pine bark based mulch, by-product of the timber industry. Contains recycled organic material (may include some inorganic material). Excellent water conserving qualities. Its main attributes are that it binds well on slopes & windy areas, absorbs moisture & reduces run-off.

Bio Mat should be spread to a minimum depth of 75 mm and should be topped up annually.

WHIPPER SNIPPING/BRUSH CUTTING

Large areas of tall grass or weeds are not only unsightly, they provide conditions that can increase the risk of fire threatening your home, cover for snakes, rodents and other pests, and if left to go to seed, spread further weeds throughout your property. 

By regularly slashing grass and weeds that cannot be reached by regular mowing, your home will be safer and your garden will be more manageable. Our experienced staff can handle large areas of tall grass, weeds and overgrown vegetation quickly & safely, so you can get more enjoyment from your outdoor space.
