Hard surface weed control should be carried out as soon as you notice an outbreak of weeds on your patio, steps, pathway, decking or driveway. With an ongoing maintenance package, your lawn care expert can keep an eye out for weeds, and control the issue easily when they spot it, to save you from having to worry.

Yes! All of our treatments are completely safe for your whole family, including pets. Our experts may recommend leaving a small period of time after your hard service weed control treatment before going back on your hard surfaces, but they will tell you everything you need to know during their visit.

Weeds spread incredibly quickly, so the best thing you can do to prevent them is to keep on top of ongoing care and maintenance. This is where our lawn care experts can help.

Hard surface weeds could appear anywhere, but you’ll most likely see them around the edges of your surfaces, or appearing in any existing cracks and between any tiles or slabs. It’s best to keep an extra eye on these areas so the weeds can be removed and controlled before they grow bigger, which is when they could start causing damage.
