Cultivation Repeated cultivation on a regular schedule will control most weeds Area will have to be le fallow for at least one full year possibly two Generally not an option in landscape plantings Controlled by cultivation Goldenrod Spread by cultivation Site Preparation with Glyphosate RoundupPro amp Others Nonselective systemic herbicide that kills d The most common site preparation treatment

not control all weeds Understand what can be controlled and what cannot Not Well Controlled By Roundup Soil Fumigation Chemical fumigants kill most weed seeds and vegetative propagules and soil insects and pathogens The site preparation choice of last resort Fumigants are very toxic expensive and require significant site preparation lfthis is to be done DO IT RIGHT Solarization Using the sun39s energy to build heat in the soil killing weed seeds and vegetative propagules Not as effective as Fumigation but simpler Requires significant time usually 4 to 6 weeks Only effective in the

for the 5 types of landscape plantings Woody Ground Cover Beds The ground cover should ultimately exclude most weeds Limited uses for nonselective herbicides Control perennial weeds before planting Do not use geotextiles where ground covers are expected to root and spread Control annual weeds with mulching hand weeding andor herbicides Several PRE herbicides are available Few uses for POST herbicides POST control of annual and perennial grasses is possible Table 1 Weed management options and limitations for the 5 types of landscape plantings Annual Flower Beds A closed canopy will shadeout many weeds Periodic cultivation annually or between display rotations will suppress man weeds Very limited use of nonselective herbicides control perennial weeds before planting Geotextiles generally are not useful due to the shortterm nature of the planting Few preemergent herbicides are safe careful species and product selection are required Mulches will suppress many annual weeds

3 Selection of ornamental species and compatible weed management options At the design phase selecting ornamental p ants with weed control in mind Example 1 Florida betonycannot be selectively controlled in beds planted to herbaceous ornamentals Therefore opting for a woody planting instead will make maintenance easier by allowing the use of effective herbicides Step 3 Selection of ornamental species and compatible weed management options etunia beds but not in Begonia or Coleus If yellow nutsedge has been a problem in the past plant petunias instead of Coleus Step 3 Selection of species and compatible weed management options Example 3 Dodder cannot be controlled in petunia or snapdragons but scaevola and sweet potato are resistant Step 4 Site Preparation Goal eliminate
