I have heard that Zoysia Green lawn company also has a service to keep weeds under control in the beds. # is 352-323-8454

I have had experience with the mesh also. It does an ok job for a while, but eventually certain weeds will grow regardless.

This may be late in coming but the natural way to kill weeds is to sprinkle table salt, wet and in a few days, the weeds are dead and can then be easily pulled. It's a slower process but much better than using chemicals.

And you might consider using me -- I do the weeds for a couple of snowbirds and even some locals. I use a mixture of vinegar, salt and detergent for my spray but pull most by hand and then spray (better weed control that way).

I think samhass suggested Preen on another board. I bought some from Home Depot and sprinkled it just a few days ago, says it lasts 90-120 days, we'll see.

Hi, I accidentally deleted an email I received. The question was about the Lawn and Garden service that we have.

We do not have a contract with her for any of the services she does. When we are in TV we do, what she normally does.

There are no annual contracts for weeding - cost is $10 per month

Pest control is $20 per month

Pruning, trimming and clean up is billed at $40 per hour, but you are charged in 15 minute increments.

Fertilizer application is based on actual quantities used.

They all sell trees and plants. I found the cost of there plants lower than in some of the nurseries I visited while in TV.

Fernview Farm - Sandra and James Harrison
352 245 7905 email fernviewnursery@aol.com

i think she has been invited to speak this November at the Garden Clubs - one in Hacienda Center.

Hope this helps.

My daughter just moved down here - she lived here six years ago and had so many customers she had to pull her ad. She pulls weeds and does trimming. If you want her name and number just send me an email at ilvgolf2004@yahoo.com.
