Resolving Post-Emergent Problems
May 18, 2020 | By: Mike Spicer
Weeds in turf and landscaped areas are going to happen. So you need a tool that can keep your areas clean and looking good. Post-emergent products are plentiful, but do you know which one is right for your application?
Select the Right Post-Emergent
Not all post-emergent herbicides are created equal. Selecting the correct post-emergent is crucial to having a successful application. Whether your problem lies in turf, a flower bed, a sand trap, or a parking lot, there is a solution.
With all the available post-emergent herbicides, just picking one off the shelf isn’t so easy. Do you need a selective, non-selective or maybe a non-selective with pre-emergent? Where are you applying? Are you applying near water or simply killing weeds in cracks of a sidewalk? Answering these questions will start to guide you in the direction needed. Also, knowing the effectiveness of certain herbicides on different broadleaf weeds or grassy weeds will aid in control as well. Here at Green Velvet, we have many selective post-emergent herbicides for use in turf that will target weeds but not your grass.
Are you spraying in a mulch bed but can’t get away with using a non-selective? Take a look at our ornamental selective labels. Maybe you just need to get rid of everything in sight or clean up a fence line, take a look at our variety of non-selective post-emergent products. Some non-selective herbicides also contain a pre-emergent built in to help keep broadleaf weeds from coming back! So next time you are looking for a solution in post-emergent control, just know we at Green Velvet will have your answer.
