Industrial Weed Control


Tired of unwanted weeds in gravel areas? Don’t have the time or manpower to continually trim or pull weeds that keep growing in these areas.


Keeping commercial lots, storage areas, parking lots, gravel driveways, and other gravel areas looking good and weed free can be a hassle.


Show unattractive weeds that are growing in unwanted areas who is in charge! Let Warne Chemical’s bare ground weed control program give you one full season of control. It costs less than the repeated mowing and trimming you are currently doing with less than adequate results.


Types Of Areas To Be Treatedindustrial_weed_control_th.jpg

  • Industrial sites

  • Equipment storage yards

  • Gravel driveways

  • Drainage ditches

  • Around industrial/commercial buildings

  • Tank farms

  • Around light or utility poles

  • Pre-asphalt

  • Vacant lots

  • Fence lines

  • Rock boulevards and other rock areas

  • Many other areas where vegetation must be controlled aggressively for safety, visibility, security, fire prevention, and overall appearance.


Timing Of Application

The ideal time for the application is early in the growing season. On first year treatments it is best treated shortly after the perennial grasses and weeds have started to green up. This allows for better control of the tougher-to-kill perennial plants.

Once the perennials have been controlled, which may take more than one application depending on the severity of the perennial plant and population, the following annual treatments can be done earlier in the season to control the annual grass and weeds before they germinate from seed.

Earlier in the spring is also ideal because moisture is needed to move the residual products into the soil profile where they become effective in controlling the germinating seed.


In situations where irrigation is not present, rain or snow is necessary to move the residual product into the soil profile. Approximately one inch of precipitation is necessary in order for the product to become effective. If the application is done too late in the season, and the rain has stopped falling on a regular basis, the results may be less than desirable.



Complications To The Effectiveness Of Bare Ground Weed Control Applications

  • Lack of adequate precipitation to move product into the soil profile

  • Heavy down pour of rain directly after application resulting in residual to runoff the site rather than penetrating into soil profile

  • Plastics or fabric directly under surface of gravel that alters the sub-surface movement of the product away from the intended location
