Weed Spraying and Removal at Hislop & Co
One of the main problems in gardens is the management of weeds, whether they be in lawns, beds and borders, or on footpaths and hard standing areas. Not only are weeds unsightly but unchecked they can cause damage through encroachment and cause surface break up. This can be expensive to repair and can present a risk to the public from tripping on cracked and raised surfaces.
Weed control forms an important component of an integrated grounds maintenance programme, and for many clients, a combination of spot spraying and hand weeding will provide the best option.
Weeds can be removed manually and where they are in close proximity to planting, or ponds and aquatic plants, this is the only option to ensure that nearby plants or fish are not harmed. In other areas it maybe appropriate to apply systemic herbicide to kill growing weeds through absorption.
Our contractors must be trained and hold the correct type of licence to handle, store and use herbicide chemicals. All our staff who carryout weed spraying are fully trained and hold the appropriate licences; PA1 & PA6.
