Always a popular stop on the SALTEX stand tour, Complete Weed Control on stand C70, are urging visitors to book a time slot into their ‘Weed Clinic’ to not only keep up-to-date with the demands of legislation but also find out ways of being more cost effective when it comes to controlling problem weeds.

The company will be discussing innovative ways of working with reduced local authority and sport budgets whilst still maintaining high standards of weed control and spraying applications.

Following last year’s announcement that the company was set to make the Weed-IT technology available to councils and contractors in the UK and Ireland for the first time, the company are now looking to appoint suitable dealers.

The Weed-IT machine has been a revolution in weed control application technology for almost twenty years, combining a very accurate and rapid weed detecting technology to spot spray weeds in a highly efficient manner. With new labels for glyphosate stating the need for spot application as opposed to blanket application, the need for this system has never been higher.

Also on show will be the company’s baseguard product. baseguard allows water and nutrients through its porous structure to the roots below, negating the issues associated with compaction. Tree wells are often choked with leaves, cigarette ends and other debris, especially when fitted with iron grilles. baseguard, however, fills these voids and can be installed in conjunction with grilles when the tree is planted, or as a retrofit.

In recent months the baseguard system has been used for much larger applications than simply tree surrounds, with access roads to sports pitches at Chelsea FC’s training ground as well as footpaths and play areas at schools being just some of its uses.

Colin Hunt replied to Adam Woods's discussion Killing crocus bulbs
"At least sense has prevailed. Not wanting crocus to come through when the garden is at it's worst and the lawn is virtually dormant seemed a strange request."

For paving i always lay and point with mortar. I've seen it done on sa…"
