Beat Those Weeds Safely With Country Landscapes Expertise In Weed Control

Weeds can cause real headaches, and in some cases rashes! Often highly invasive and aggressive weeds such as Japanese knotweed need specialist knowledge from qualified contractors to control them. We use the safest solutions to tackle your weed problems.

Why do we need weed spraying and weed killing programmes?

Safety - weed growth can:-

Disrupt pathways often causing slip and trip injuries

Moss and algae weeds make paths slippery

Raise and break up tarmac, concrete and paved areas

Cause obstructions and decreased visibility in tall weeds

Clog surface drains

Create fire hazard

Harbour pests including rats and mice

Efficiency - herbicides improve efficiency by:-

Giving far greater coverage/day than by mechanical means

Give longer lasting control

Reduces the need to reinstate broken tarmac

Reduces the need for maintenance work

Avoids strimmer and mower damage to trees and shrubs

Eliminating risk of injury from use of strimmers

Aesthetic Value - the use of herbicides, fungicides and insecticides will:-

Eradicate weed growth and improve the appearance of ornamental areas

Prevent worm casts and other disruption to playing surfaces

Control damaging pests and diseases which ruin turf

Clear weeds that trap silt and rubbish

Improve the appearance of unkempt areas, discouraging litter etc.

Improve the growth of plants and trees by competition

The Noxious Weeds Act (1959) requires land owners to eliminate "scheduled" weeds and The Wildlife and Countryside Act(1981) specifies the control of Japanese Knotweed.

Cost effectiveness:-

By the careful use of pesticides, paths, hard surfaces, amenity areas, boundary areas, and shrub beds can be maintained economically at considerably less cost than other methods.

Safer Service

In addition to following health and safety guidelines comparing the chemicals used for weed control is one way of alleviating fears as to their safety. Compared with Gylphosate (the most widely used chemical):-

Coffee is around 30 times more toxic

Paracetamol is 22 times more toxic

Vitamin A is approximately 3 times more toxic

Dandruff shampoo is approximately 40 times more toxic

Nicotine is approximately 113 times more toxic
