All Seasons Pest Control has been providing landscape care services for over 35 years in Pierce County. From insect and disease control on your trees and shrubs to crane fly control on your lawn to weed control on your lawn and gravel driveway and in your garden beds.
While a successful tree & shrub care spraying program can help with the general control of insects, mites, and fungus in your landscape, a timely weed control program can help keep your lawn, garden beds, and gravel paths and driveways free of unwanted weeds and other vegetation.

Preventing the Spread of Weeds
An essential part of weed management is preventing further spread. Isolation and effective prevention include the following steps:
- Using weed-free mulches
- Removing weeds that have yet to form seed heads
- Applying only certified weed-free seed
Without prevention, weed management would be an ongoing battle. Weeds can easily travel from one area to another, within your yard and between your yard and other areas of your community. Some weed seeds travel by air, while others cling to tires, shoes, and animals to be transported to a new area.
At All Seasons Pest Control, we take landscaping & weed management in Tacoma, WA, seriously. Prevention is a critical step to ensuring your yard stays weed free after we leave.
Mechanical Controls and Removals
Also known as physical controls, mechanical controls include a variety of ways to physically remove weeds from your garden or yard. We use a variety of specialized tools and traditional means to remove weeds mechanically, including hoeing, tilling, mowing, flooding, or merely pulling weeds by hand.
Mechanical processes work well because they do not use herbicides or introduce other pests into your yard. However, this route can take more time and is not always effective at removing the entire root system of many weeds. Larger mechanical options, like tilling, can also affect your yard. Of course, manual options, like hand-pulling weeds, can be inefficient for large areas or weeds with especially deep roots. Our team at All Seasons Pest Control discuss the pros and cons of various mechanical means of control before determining the best strategy for your yard.
Herbicides can be designed to target specific weed species, or more generally control weeds of all types. Herbicides can either be applied through a spray or applied through the soil. While some can be harmful to the soil and your health, professional herbicides can safely treat your weed management issues without introducing health hazards in your yard. Ask our team about your herbicide options for extreme weed removal and prevention.
Chemical controls need to be applied during specific times of the year. Introducing herbicides during an incorrect stage in the life cycle of weeds can be ineffective.
