Weeds in turf or on a gravel lot or in cracks in the sidewalk? Are you licensed for pesticides?

Do you have a suggestion for weed control within hedges?

I don't know of any chemical that is selective for broadleaf weeds that won't also harm a hedge. There may be something out there but I've not heard of it.

Pull them and mulch the area. Use a pre-emergent in the spring, such as "Preen", to keep new weeds from germinating in the mulch.

So in order to take care of weeds, you have to be licensed for pesticides? Even at your own property or does this mean other propertys?

You will have to check your state law but I think it comes down to, if you charge for the service, you need to be licensed.

Although, I have a feeling, if you are doing it for free and the customer gives you the chemical spray, you still need to be licensed.

Not on your own property though.
