We have an all organic lawn care company, but haven't found a way to completely control weeds without spot spraying those nasty chemicals.

Any herbicide on the market that is natural, certified organic, and actually works?

Any feedback is appreciated!

there are non selective herbicides on the market that work okay to good, application timing is critical, you have to attack the weed when it is already stressed

selective herbicide?? we have not seen one yet besides your right hand

most companies that move to organics trade their herbicide budget to a seeding budget trying to create a thick stand of turf, not many weeds can compete with a 3 1/2 to 4 inch stand of thick turf

weeds are often a indicator of the soil profile, build fertile soil and get an oversseding program in place and you will have little issue with weeds
