Updated Landscape Weed Info

Controlling weeds can be challenging to landscape professionals or home gardeners since landscapes often include a mix of turfgrass, annual plants, herbaceous perennials, shrubs, and trees.

The newly revised publication Pest Notes: Weed Management in Landscapes by Area IPM Advisor Cheryl Wilen, presents an integrated approach to weed management to help ensure weed control efforts are effective, environmentally-sound and economical. This science-based publication includes information on methods such as pre-planting considerations, the importance of weed identification, nonchemical practices such as using mulches and barriers, weed management recommendations in different types of landscape plantings, and updated herbicide options. 

See this updated publication and UC IPM's other 170 Pest Notes at http://ipm.ucanr.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/index.html.
