Weed Control

Weed control

We are LANTRA trained and certified by NPTC to apply pesticides. We offer weed control as part of most normal maintenance visits, both domestic and commercial, but we can also do large-scale weed eradication work, and localised treatment of Japanese Knotweed.

Overgrown industrial estates and retail parks can be dealt with, with pesticides being applied during a dry day and die-back within 2 weeks thereafter.

We have access to the full range of professional products from trade suppliers and always ensure we use the correct product, correctly dosed and controlled.

  • Eradication of weeds in paving, kerbs, car parks
  • Shrub bed applications
  • Products include Roundup, Pistol, Relay Turf, Kibosh, Gallup, MMC Pro
  • Long term affects
  • Total weed control

When carrying out any chemical weed control we ensure that surrounding shrub beds, lawns and other plants are not affected by drift on the wind. We will take sufficient measures to protect people and animals from wet products after application and use the correct level of protective equipment to ensure our own safety.

Use of chemicals is taken seriously and is kept to a minimum, but it is a fact that keeping large areas clear of weeds without incurring excessively high costs requires the use of pesticides from time to time. We do still manually weed where it is the best method, such as around tender shrubs and during wet and windy weather.

lawn weeds are taken care of by using one of a range of selective herbicides. They often contain a combination of chemicals that target specific weeds. The action they have is slower than a general weed killer such as Roundup but results are usually complete within 4 weeks from application. Cells within the weeds stem elongate to the point of bursting so you will often see stretched-out weeds on the lawn after a treatment has taken place. Depending on the lawn it may be possible to use only one treatment per year.

We carry out Japanese Knotweed control by drawing up a carefully-planned series of visits over the space of 24 months and a follow-up inspection to ensure there have been no surviving plants.
