Planter Bed Pre-Emergent
Weeds often germinate rapidly, and if unchecked, they can dominate your lawn and overwhelm your plants in a matter of days. If you decide to pick them, you might waste countless hours pulling them out, even with a helping hand. Sunshine Landscape can apply a pre-emergent to suppress weed growth, saving you time and money. A pre-emergent is a weed control method used to thwart unwanted plants' growth before becoming a problem. The herbicides contained in the residue create an invisible barrier on the soil surface that prevents weeds from growing soon after germination.
For this weed control method to work effectively, you should know the right time to use it. At Sunshine Landscape, we can inspect your yard or planter beds and apply a pre-emergent at the opportune moment and in the correct measurements. Our solution significantly cuts your need for chemical and manual weeding throughout the year.
Foliar herbicides are pest control chemicals applied to a crop's leaves and stems. The solution gets absorbed and transported to all parts of the plant for action. If you have aesthetic shrubs in your yard, a foliar application may be more appropriate than soil-applied products since it lands directly on the target.
Sunshine Landscape recommends foliar application solutions when you don't want to contaminate the soil with chemicals. It works well with perennial herbs and woody shrubs. Hire our team to repair your garden or yard trees and shrubs using this effective technique.
We administer foliar herbicides in Treasure Valley in mid-summer. However, we can vary the timing based on the weather conditions in the year and plant-specific needs.
Broadleaf Weed Control
Broadleaf weeds are opportunistic plants that lay in your garden soil, waiting for favorable conditions for growth. With ideal conditions, they invade bare spots and where your turf is thinning out. Apart from robbing your lawn of its beauty, the broadleaf weeds steal the nutrients, water, and sunlight meant for your grass.
Sunshine Landscape can help eliminate broadleaf weeds from your yard effectively. We know how to stop even the most challenging varieties of broadleaf weeds that grow in Boise, like chickweed, clovers, plantains, and dandelions. Our team uses a successful three-step strategy for broadleaf weed control and removal that involves:
1) Weed Identification
Our landscaping professionals know the broadleaf weeds that can invade your yard in the Treasure Valley. Once we identify the wild plant invading your turf, we apply the appropriate weed killer for the species.
2) Lawn Inspection
Our team can examine your lawn to uncover the reasons a given weed has thrived. We will assess soil nutrient levels, among other factors, and learn the spots to target with treatments.
3) Weed Treatment Application
The last step is to apply the right weed control treatment. Our landscapers can do so while maintaining zero or little contact with your ornamental plants.
