Off-Lawn Weed Control
Integrated Lawn & Tree’s Off-Lawn Weed Control
Off-lawn weeds are a major source of weeds that get into your lawn. As these off-lawn weeds germinate in rock beds, mulch areas, and other non-turf areas, they can spread their seeds over your entire lawn.
Weeds in off-lawn areas also tend to be highly visible and difficult to remove by hand – making them a major nuisance for homeowners.
Preventing and eliminating off-lawn weeds is what this service entails. We apply a high-quality pre-emergent herbicide in March and April to all your non-turf areas. This way, we get a jump start on eliminating the weeds before they germinate.
We then come back 6-8 weeks later to spot treat weeds, to eliminate any that may have escaped our pre-emergent treatment. We then do one additional visit, 6-8 weeks after that, to spot treat any weeds that are remaining.
The result is that your rock beds, mulch areas, and stone pathways remain weed-free all season long.
And what if you spot weeds popping up between treatments?
This service includes free visits between our regular treatments to treat any weeds that you may spot in your off-lawn area. We’ll promptly send our technician back to spray and eliminate those weeds.
What does Off-Lawn Weed Control Mean?
With this service, weed control applied in areas that are not your lawn, so areas like mulch beds, rock beds, stone pathways, etc.
Why is Off-Lawn Weed Control Important?
Who wants to spend all their spare time hand pulling weeds out of those rocks beds or mulch beds that border your property? What about the grass that inevitably encroaches into the mulch? Our vegetation control service takes care of it so you don’t have to!
