Frequently Asked Questions

What are pre and post-emergent herbicides?

Pre-emergent herbicides are chemicals that we apply as a liquid to rock or dirt areas that prevent weed growth. Post-emergent herbicides are chemicals that kill broad-leaf weeds and grasses

Why does pre-emergent need to be watered in after it is applied?

All preventative chemicals need to be watered in after application either by rain, sprinkler, or by hand. This will activate the chemical and get it into the soil where the weed seeds exist.

When is the best time to have my yard treated?

When you have weed problems and/or just prior to the season for the specifically targeted weeds.

Are the chemicals safe around children and pets?

We ask that they remain off the treated areas until fully dry as the chemical labels instructs. This is usually 30-90 minutes.

What is our guarantee?

We guarantee to kill most weeds that occur within the 6 or 12 month contract period at no charge. We do not guarantee Nut grass or Bermuda grass.
