Our knowledge and identification of weed species helps us customize the right products for your property as the season evolves.

Spraying Roundup all season long won’t suffice with us!
If a company was hired to pull weeds the previous year, we will expect a bumper crop of bi-annual weeds in April as the snow melts, as well as a flush of annual weeds in late spring and early summer. Our goal is to keep killing the weed population that was so aggressive during the pulling routine from the previous year. Normally, we see a flush of weeds after a 1″ rainfall, but for this first season it may only take 0.5″ to cause the same re-growth. Despite this fact, please bear with us as we knock down the high population of seeds within the soil.
Sunlight and water are all it takes for rapid weed growth to occur. The following tips from Contender’s landscaping experts will help manage flower bed weed control and keep weeds at bay. Grasses are the most persistent problems during the season, so we advise everyone to be vigilant about keeping grass clippings on the lawn only. Cleaning up the flower bed edges twice per year will help you maintain a clean and well-manicured property. Contender’s does not provide this service, but any reputable landscaper could handle this task for you.
