MULCH BED WEED CONTROL

MINIMIZE AND CONTROL WEEDS

MULCH BED WEED CONTROL

Designed to minimize weeds in your flower and landscape beds, greatly reducing the need for the back-breaking chore of weeding.

Our specialist applies both pre and post emergent herbicides to prevent weed seeds from germinating as well as controls for tough to control weeds (like thistle and tree seedlings) and those seeds that broke through the preventive barrier. We do not guarantee 100% control of weeds, It just isn’t possible, but with treatments and your good cultural practices, proper mulching, watering and light weeding. You’ll get the most out of this service. If you have wildflowers, uncommon varieties, or exotic plants, bring these to our attention. Our horticulturist is very familiar with plant species but you know what they say! One man’s weed is another man’s flower.

TYPICAL APPLICATION SCHEDULE

EARLY SPRING PRE-EMERGENT APPLICATION

The initial treatment we’ll apply a granular or liquid weed preventer, this forms a barrier on the soil surface to prevent up to 95% of weed seeds from germinating. This application WILL NOT control established or perennial weeds.

LATE SPRING POST-EMERGENT APPLICATION

By this time any weeds that were established prior to our initial treatment, off label and hard to control weeds and grasses are flourishing, our technician will spot treat these weeds and grasses with post emergent controls, again reducing the weeds in your gardens. Weeds growing through or very near desirable plants cannot be treated and should be pulled to prevent damage to your plants.

SUMMER PRE-EMERGENT APPLICATION

Similar to the early Spring treatment, but targeting cool season Fall and Winter annuals and perennials, such as annual bluegrass, chickweed, speedwell, and other weeds that germinated in late Fall and early Winter.

FALL POST-EMERGENT APPLICATION

Targets remaining weeds and tough to control weeds with Post-emergent spot treatment. Weeds growing through or very near desirable plants cannot be treated and should be pulled to prevent damage to your plants.

OUR HORTICULTURIST’S METHOD OF WEEDING

I enjoy my yard and gardens by relaxing each day after work for 10-20 minutes. I inspect plants look at their growth, health and flowering. All while doing a bit of weeding. I pull a few weeds each day and they do not have a chance to set seed or get out of control. It’s very therapeutic! Take a few minutes each day after work to enjoy your yard, get some fresh air and pull a few weeds. You’ll feel better and weeding becomes a way to relax, not a chore! I look forward to my “Yard time”.
