Weed Control 05.22.13

Periodically throughout the summer we will be applying chemicals to control weeds on an as needed basis.  If you see a flag in your yard, it likely means a small area of your yard has been treated with one of the following products:

  • Speedzone (Broadleaf Herbicide) EPA#2217-833:  Applied to broadleaf weeds in turf.  Affected area should be kept off for 24 hours.
  • Cornerstone (Nonselective Herbicide) EPA#1381-192:  Applied to broadleaf and grassy weeds encroaching from turf into adjacent bed areas.  Affected areas should be kept off  for 24 hours.

  • Surf King Plus (Surfactant):  A water conditioner that lowers surface tension, allows the liquid to stick more to the plant, and acidifies the water to combat high soil alkalinity and increase herbicide effectiveness.
We will inform you by email when a more "global" treatment is planned.  If you have any questions or concerns contact the management company.
