To get the best weed control results on existing weeds, no one argues that you must use liquid applications applied directly to the leaf surface of your weeds. Fertilizers on the other hand are best applied in a granular form. To save time and money, many lawn care firms use trucks with a large tank. In this large tank they can mix their weed control and fertilizer together, this saves on application time. The savings can be passed on to the customer in reduced fees or pocketed by the company as profit. The main problem with this approach is liquid fertilizer must be mixed in a large volume of water in order to reduce the risk of the liquid fertilizer burning your lawn. A large volume of water is required for the fertilizer, but unfortunately it dilutes your weed control, ultimately reducing its effectiveness on your weeds.
Our mission has always been to provide superior results, which is why we only use granular materials when fertilizing lawns, and only liquid weed controls for controlling existing weeds. Our weed control mix has the perfect ratio of water resulting in more concentrated effective weed control. We also use a custom spray gun specifically designed for spraying weeds, as it produces a smaller sized droplet. Companies that use liquid fertilizer are forced to use a gun designed for applying large volumes of water. These spray guns produce large droplets that tend to bounce off the weed further reducing control.
Separating our fertilizers and weed control treatments also allows us the ability to only spray weeds where you have them, reducing unnecessary product on your lawn, and in our environment.
