WEED MANAGEMENT IS A GOOD NEIGHBOR POLICY
When noxious weeds* show up, property value goes down. That is why managing them is a must. There has been a tremendous expansion of noxious weeds across Colorado. In recognition of the economic impacts of weeds, the General Assembly of the State of Colorado passed the Colorado Weed Management Act in 1990 (also known as the Colorado Noxious Weed Act). The act requires managers and landowners to manage noxious weeds especially when they threaten to invade neighboring properties. *Noxious weeds are non-native and spread rapidly:
Weed infestations occur over time and cannot be cured in a single application. Maintenance visits and monitoring will continue to reduce the weed population, especially if there is a good stand of native plants such as grasses to compete or the seed bank in the soil surface is nearly exhausted.
Persistence is the key to a successful management program. Monitoring and evaluating results of management practices is an essential part of any weed control program. An important preventive measure related to weed control is to keep the weeds from seeding either by spraying, pulling, cutting flower heads or mowing. Growing conditions can vary from year to year as a result of drought or wet cycles. Environmental conditions and other factors may dictate changes in timing of management practices or selection of herbicides and rates. We reserve the right to modify recommendations if necessary at time of treatment.
