General Weed Management Concepts for Lawns

Identifying the weed and trying to determine why it has become a problem is the first step in dealing with lawn weeds. Some weeds are good indicators of underlying problems. For example, ground ivy (creeping Charlie) readily invades lawns in shade and with poor soil drainage, while knotweed is a plant able to survive in compacted soils. Crabgrass typically invades lawns that are mowed too short or watered too often. Clovers may be a sign of low fertility. Dandelions may adapt to a range of conditions. An assortment of weeds may indicate overall poor conditions for lawn grasses and/or poor management. There are a number of herbicides available for weed control, specific to the type of weed to be controlled. Please contact your sales rep for more information.

MaugetMauget tree injection capsules

Mauget injections are an environmentally friendly way to apply pesticides to trees to control damaging insects such as Emerald Ash Borer. No need to worry about drift, because of the patented closed system this means the chemical is contained entirely within the tree. Only pests feeding on the tree are directly affected. Beneficial and non-target insects and other life forms are notaffected. This gives the applicator the opportunity to treat trees in adverse weather conditions.

Mauget micro injection capsules are also a very effective method for combating nutrient deficiency, disease and fungus control. With no unnecessary overspray and rain washed wasted material. The method is done by drilling small holes into the tree at the root flare and installing capsules every 6" around the base of the tree.
