Questions & Answers

What are pre and post-emergent herbicides?

Pre-emergent herbicides are chemicals that we apply as a liquid to rock or dirt areas that prevent weed growth. Post-emergent herbicides are chemicals that kill broad-leaf weeds and grasses.

Why does pre-emergent need to be watered in after it is applied?

All preventative chemicals need to be watered in after application either by rain, sprinkler, or by hand. This will activate the chemical and get it into the soil where the weed seeds exist.

When is the best time to have my yard treated?

When you have weed problems and/or just prior to the season for the specifically targeted weeds.

Are the chemicals safe around children and pets?

We ask that they remain off the treated areas until fully dry as the chemical labels instructs. This is usually 30-90 minutes.

What is our guarantee?

We guarantee to kill most weeds that occur within the 6 or 12 month contract period at no charge. We do not guarantee Nut grass or Bermuda grass.

I am landscaping my yard. When should I have it sprayed?

It’s best to spray after all landscaping is finished. Water the chemical in and you are set.

Should I clear out the weeds in my yard before you spray?

It’s not necessary if the weeds are small and scattered. However, if they are large and numerous and cover the ground, it is best to clean them up prior to spraying.

How much does it cost?

It depends on the size of your yard or area to be treated. Call with an idea of the size of your yard and we should be able to give you a phone quote.

Are the chemicals harmful to the environment?

We use and apply chemicals only according to manufacturers instructions.

Do you spray flower beds?

We usually don’t, but will spray flower beds if requested.

Will you treat turf-grass areas of my yard?

No, we only treat granite/dirt areas.

What areas of Arizona do you provide weed control?

Very friendly, responsive and effective. Excellent service. We are extremely pleased with this company and the results of their weed control techniques. And their prices are very reasonable. That's another plus.
If you have weeds in your yard, you need to give these guys a call. They offer a 6 month or 1 year guarantee depending on the time of year and come back to take care of any weeds if they come up! Responsive and well priced.

Been using A1 and Scott for about 20 years. Always does a great job, always fairly priced, always on time, and always very personable. Have recommended A1 to several friends and they are now long time clients as well. Wouldn't even think of using anybody else. Do yourself a favor and call them for your weed control issues.
