Environmental weed control is critical to ensure the protection of natural landscapes and environmentally sensitive habitats like wetland ecosystems. In fact, according to the Invasive Species Council, invasive weeds are our second largest threat to biodiversity. They endorse prevention and control as the most economically viable ways to combat the problem.
Lakes Flora have extensive experience in environmental weed control methods to combat tough, aggressive weeds. Our first step is to carry out a full assessment of your site, mapping out where weeds exist, determining the type of weeds which need removal, and the best equipment to get the job done. Following our assessment, we’ll issue a comprehensive report outlining our weed management plan and the services we recommend.
You can choose to implement our recommendations yourself, or engage our team of weed control technicians. Armed with years’ of experience and specialist equipment, we’re able to remove the toughest of weeds in an efficient, environmentally responsible and cost-effective manner.
