Our organic weed control programs work great on broad-leaf weeds in the lawn, but organics do have
a few limitations. Organic weed controls can control the majority of weeds in a lawn, but there are some very hard to control weeds that require special weed killers. Even though we use synthetic weed control products for very specific weeds, we
choose products that are extremely low toxic to bees, people, pets, and are environmentally friendly. The specialty weed controls that we use are highly effective at controlling the targeted weeds.
The best way to reduce the use of products like Roundup or Glyphosate is to prevent the weeds from growing in the first place. Organo-Lawn uses a very special weed control called Specticle to prevent weeds from growing in rock and mulch beds.
Specticle will prevent weed seeds from germinating for up to 10 months and it dramatically reduces weeds in hardscapes. This special weed control must be applied to the rock or mulch area prior to the weed seeds germinating. This means the application must be applied during a time of year that most people are not thinking about weeds. We perform Specticle applications during the months of November or February, if weather permits.
The best way to prevent weeds from growing in flower beds, gravel driveways, landscape beds, and hardscapes is to be proactive. This special pre-emergent weed control will virtually eliminate the need to hand pull weeds or use chemical products like Roundup.
Drive XLR8 is the most effective weed killer for bindweed in lawns. It also is a wonderful control for Crabgrass in grass.
If you have ever tried to control crabgrass or bindweed in your lawn you know it is extremely difficult and frustrating. The good news is there is a product called Drive XLR8 that is the most effective weed killer for bindweed and crabgrass. Luckily, not every lawn will have bindweed or crabgrass, but if your lawn does have a weed problem call our office to schedule an appointment.
Crabgrass is a lime green colored grass that doesn't show up in lawns until sometime in June.
Weed control in native grasslands and pasture areas requires a special weed control that doesn't harm grazing animals. The weed control we use in these areas is called Milestone. Since most native areas are healthy without needing to be fertilized, we offer Milestone as a weed killer specifically made for native areas that does not include any fertilizer.
Native area weed control can only be performed with special herbicides that are approved by the EPA for use in these locations. We use a special weed control called Milestone which is permitted in these locations.
To schedule or discuss weed control services contact our office (303) 499-2000 Boulder or (970) 225-9425 Fort Collins!
The best weed control for controlling Canada thistle in pasture grasses is Milestone. This special weed control will kill Canada thistle with one application and the weed will typically die within 7-10 days after the application. Milestone is also a wonderful weed control for other problem weeds that grow in pasture lands, native grass areas and meadows.
