Do I Really Need Weed Abatement Services?
Wondering why weed abatement is mandatory in Ventura County? The answer is simple! Removing brush, weeds, and other hazardous vegetation helps to create defensible space for firefighters and reduce the risk of wildfires. The city considers proper weed abatement to be the responsibility of both commercial and residential property owners. The Ventura County Fire Department manages the Fire Hazard Reduction Program (also known as FHRP). Following these guidelines is the best defense against disastrous fires.
At Green Leaf Zone, we practice two primary forms of weed abatement. The first method is for pre-emergent weeds. As you might expect, pre-emergent weeds are those that have not yet sprouted. Using carefully selected preventative herbicides, we can form a barrier right below the soil surface in order to attack weed seeds before they have a chance to germinate. When using pre-emergent herbicides, we typically use a lawn spreader to ensure they are applied evenly to your lawn. We also offer post-emergent weed abatement. From the most common grassy and broadleaf weeds to dandelions and crabgrass, we’re ready to help!
For large jobs, we use industrial-grade tools and heavy machinery, depending on the needs of the property. For example, we may need to bring in four-wheel-drive tractors and crawler tractors in order to manage dense hillside weeds or brush growing along an incline. For more suburban projects, we have smaller tractors that allow us to complete our work without disrupting the surrounding property. Finally, in some cases we may not be able to access your weeds with a tractor. If this happens, we’ll bring in hand-held weed abatement tools to get into hard to reach areas, such as those near powerlines or other electrical units.
Weed abatement is also very important if you own commercial property. Keeping your landscaping presentable will help you make a positive impression on first-time customers as well as repeat visitors. Well-maintained vegetation signals that you have a high level of professionalism, which makes it easier for customers to make buying decisions. This is particularly important for businesses that generate most of their revenue through storefronts, rather than online. We advise all property owners to hire a professional weed abatement company to avoid the risk of being found non-compliant with brush regulations. At Green Leaf Zone, we are equipped with state-of-the-art machinery to ensure the job gets done right.
Our Weed Abatement Service Areas
When you’re looking for a weed clearing service, it’s important to consider where the company is based. At Green Leaf Zone, we work with property owners throughout Ventura County. We’re very familiar with all the native plant life as well as the brush clearance and weed abatement requirements set by the local government.
In addition to cutting back weeds and brush, we also remove the debris and dispose of it safely. This city requires all cut vegetation and debris to be removed in a legal manner. Oftentimes, weeds and brush can be machine processed (i.e., chipped) and spread back onto the property in approved areas. In accordance with Fire Prevention Bureau Procedure No. 25, we never spread material within 10 feet of any usable roadside.
We proudly serve the following cities and surrounding areas: Santa Monica, Pasadena, Montebello, Hawthorne, San Fernando, Calabasas, Sherman Oaks, Westwood, Riverside County, Beverly Hills, Culver City, West Hollywood, Huntington Park, Encino, Inglewood, Glendale, Burbank, San Jose, Orange County, Santa Clara, and Rancho Palos Verdes.
