Weed Control

Does anyone know of a weed control product (preferably a liquid) for the organic, environmentally safe lawn market?

Steve, Natures Magic has one that works well, he can't however sell it to me in Canada as he doesn't have the distribution rights, you should contact them to see if they can sell to you.

Failing which I spray a product I mix myself, it works very well. It is made up of

1 gallon of white vinegar.
1 cup of table salt.
1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap.

I didn't see any weed control listing on the Nature's Magic site. That was the first place I looked. I was Aerify, Aerify Plus, Nature's, Dethatcher, Fish Oil, and Insect control. Is it one of these or do they have a product just for weed control?

Andy,
Is there any water mixed with the mixture you have listed above?
I want to experiment on my lawn which is about 100,000 sq. ft.
I have a Fimco 25 gallon sprayer.
How many sq.ft does the above mixture cover?

Thanks,

Hi Turfmaster,

I'm not Andy but I know Nature's Magic has their weed control product for shipment now. It is $95.00 per 5 gallon and it mixes at 1 quart to 1 gallon water.

I received their email about current shipping Friday. I have not tried it yet but I ordered 5 gallons to test. I beleive if Andy says it works, it will work.

Steve

Turfmaster, I mix the manual solution with 5 gallons of water, a gallon does 1,000 square feet.

As Steve notes I have been using an Organic product that is made or put together here in Canada that Natures Lawn Care is now selling in the USA. This Organic product is a process and what I mean by that is you need to sell at least three, preferably four sprays to get the lawn back to where it belongs and drive the weeds out. Overseeding is critical, we mow to 2" overseed, roll and then spray. after which we spray every four weeks for a total of four sprays.

100,000 square feet is going to be an expensive venture, it does not eliminate broadleaf weeds in my experience so far.

Andy

Default I have some questions

I've been poking around here for a little bit now, and I'm very intrigued by the natural products that you (Andy) and Steve have mentioned in several posts. I've decided to be a totally organic maintenance company, but I'm new to the business and my question regards scheduling for these products. Do either of you guys follow a schedule for the application of these products?

Thanks,
Jason
