A weed is a plant growing where it is not wanted and generally considered to be a nuisance. Weeds can be annoying for many reasons, including being unsightly and limiting the growth of wanted plants by taking up nutrients or blocking light. In gardens, shrub beds, or pastures they can interfere with the health of plants you actually want to grow. In parking lots, gravel areas, or vacant lots they're unsightly and make these areas look shabby.

Often weeds can simply be pulled or hoed out. Grassy weeds, blackberries, and brush, however, cannot be easily pulled once they are established. When this happens, treating with an herbicide is often the best solution. Follow-up treatments are usually necessary to keep them from becoming re-established.

There are a variety of herbicides to choose from. All must be applied carefully to prevent damage to wanted plants. Pre-emergent herbicides can be used to prevent weed seeds from germinating. Selective herbicides will kill broadleaf plants, but not hurt grass. Contact herbicides are generally nonselective and kill anything they are applied on. Soil sterilants kill existing plants and create a residual barrier to prevent future weed growth for up to one year. If you would like help with your weed problems, contact us.
