Moss & Algae Weed Control for Urban Environments

Moss growing on kerbside

Moss and Algae problems have increased as urban weed control has become better targeted and more environmentally aware, particularly in areas of non residual weed control. These problems are a concern as they can make the surface extremely slippery.

They are primitive plants which can survive in damp and shaded urban environments. The problems are most prevalent in autumn and spring when moss and algae have ideal moisture and temperature conditions.

The problem is best tackled using integrated weed control combining chemical applications with increased sweeping regimes. The long term solution is to alter the local environment to make it less suitable to algae and moss by reducing the shade and moisture whilst increasing air movement.

LanGuard VM have the experience and expertise to help you solve this problem.
