Parks Herbicide Application Notification

Share this page:

The City of Colorado Springs Parks Department uses a multi-faceted approach to better defend against pests. The objective is to control nuisance and noxious weeds in the City parks, open spaces, and public right of ways and insects that can be damaging to the urban tree canopy.

The best weed control is a healthy, vigorously growing stand of turf grass that can out compete weeds. We accomplish this by focusing on practices such as mowing, fertilizing, irrigating, soil aeration/dethatching, topdressing, and overseeding. Herbicides are then used, if needed, as a last line of defense.

After the herbicide is applied, the area is safe to reenter once the product has dried. Because the preferred method of application is extremely low volume, on a warm sunny day, this typically occurs very rapidly.
