Keeping control of those intrusive weeds
Even the most meticulously kept lawns can encounter weeds, so the best way to keep your lawn weed-free is to manage your weed control and know how to treat them and when it is best to treat them. As treatments such as pesticides and herbicides are mainly absorbed through leaves, the best time to apply them is when the weed is growing.
The chemicals we use are pet friendly and organic, so you get peace of mind that they won’t contaminate your gardens and green areas or become a danger to anyone that uses them.
Weeds can be controlled in a few different ways:
Cultural controls: This method works by keeping a strong healthy sward that will keep weeds and diseases to a minimum. Cultural controls cover practices like aeration, topdressing, dew removal and mowing at the right height.
Soil is shaded from the sun by the blades of grass, preventing weeds from germinating in the first place, so keeping your lawn at the correct height promotes thicker turf that gives weeds less room to flourish.
Pesticides: In some cases, it may be necessary to apply a fungicide/ herbicide. Our qualified professionals are trained in the safe handling and use of pesticides, so you get the peace of mind that your lawn is being cared for safely.
Remember, weed control is an ongoing task and it may take more than one application to get rid of certain weed types, clover being a typical weed that takes time to suppress and remove. So, before we carry out any treatments, we identify the weed/disease so that we can choose a suitable product to control and reduce weed density, and eventually reach the target of a weed free lawn.
