Fertilizer and Weed Control

A Healthy Lawn is Your Best Defense against Weeds

 

In 2015 the Manitoba government introduced legislation restricting the use of synthetic pesticides for weed control on lawns. As with all other lawn care companies, the only weed control product approved for use in Manitoba is ecofriendly Fiesta™. Fiesta™ is the first low risk turf weed killer available in Canada for use in controlling weeds for cosmetic purposes. Now, a green lawn can be even greener.

 

While Fiesta works quickly, over time it is a process that will require multiple applications to control weeds, especially in lawns with heavy weed infestations.

As homeowners become more focused on eco-friendly practices both for the betterment of the environment and for their family, they are looking for alternative products and services to traditional herbicides. Fiesta™ is a naturally derived, odorless, mineral-based liquid. The active ingredient in Fiesta™ is iron. When applied to grass, iron generates a deep, rich, dark green colour by helping the lawn to break down and utilize nitrogen quickly. When iron is applied to certain weeds, the weeds weaken and dry out, essentially exploding from the inside out.

 

With quality fertilizers, proper mowing & watering, regular lawn aeration and the use of Fiesta™ weed control it is still possible to have that beautiful lawn you desire!

Now you don't have to choose between effectiveness and the environment. Choose both!
