Manage Weeds

Weeds are simply unwanted vegetation. In fact, every plant can be a weed if it is not wanted. There are many products on the market to fight weeds. We advise using them sparingly and only for spot treatment, where hand management is not suitable. The health risk of herbicides to humans and wildlife isn’t clear. Although most of the chemicals evaporate after a few days, herbicides kill beneficial spores and fungi in the ground, making the soil more susceptible to weeds. Many lawn herbicides are designed to disintegrate in sunlight. When they are tracked into our homes, on shoes or by pets, they persist for a very long time and may have more pronounced negative effects on humans and pets. We recommend the use of herbicides only when other strategies have failed.
