WEED CONTROL

START A TURF WAR

Weed problems are universal. Weeds choke out desirable grass, decrease visibility on highways, increase storm water drainage and hinder access to work sites. Sure, you could mow or weed eat, but how often would you have to, and would it really get rid of the problem?

 

Edko got its start in traditional herbicide treatments back in the 60s. Our customers have ranged from individual homeowners to investor-owned utilities, to cities and counties. All of our customers have one thing in common. They have a problem and we have a solution.
 
It’s true – other companies boast the same solution, but there’s a reason that we’ve retained contracts for as long as 40 years and customers that changed contractors in the past have come back. It’s our quality of work, our reputation of saying “yes”, our customer relationships and most of all, our people.

THE BARE NECESSITIES


If absolute bare ground is your desire, we’ve got the ticket. Vegetation can corrode metal, create refuge for pests, become a fire hazard and even inhibit traffic within your substation. Prevent unnecessary headaches and maintenance by eliminating all that is green.

WE SEE WEEDS IN YOUR FUTURE


Weeds are like door-to-door salesmen. They come at inconvenient times, they’re hard to get rid of and you’ve either got to spend money to get them to leave you alone or you have to ignore them. The big difference between the two is that you know when weeds are coming. They’ve been coming in at the same time every year for as far back as anyone can remember.

The birds are chirping, the bees are buzzing and plants are growing. If you haven’t already started mowing, small broadleaf weeds are starting to gang up on your bermuda. It’s just a matter of time before the weeds dominate.

Grass along a roadside.

PREVENT AN UPRISING


For most of us, weeds aren’t really a problem during the colder months. Sure, you’ve got a few winter annuals popping up on your roadside, but your grass is dormant and the winter weeds will disappear when the heat comes back.

FOR YOUR SELECTIVE OBJECTIVE


Got specific problems? We’ve got specific solutions. When it comes to drainage canals, parks, campuses, levees, or highway roadsides, vegetation is desired, but not just any kind of vegetation.

We write bid specification.

IN BID TROUBLE?


If you were to bid out sweeping the floor of your home, it’d be pretty easy to write out the specifications. The bid would specify an able-bodied person, a broom, a dustpan and the time that you’d like the sweeping to be complete. Easy, right?

A railroad track that has been cleared with a bare ground application.

STOP WEEDS DEAD IN YOUR TRACKS


The railroad industry has enough moving pieces as it is. You’ve got the trains themselves, other motorists, the mechanics of the tracks, signals and those pesky kids stretching anything metallic on the rails.
