Being A Weed Warrior

  • GVM encourages all residents to manage noxious weeds on their lots. We offer site visits, helpful information and small amounts of herbicide for your use. Weeds can be bagged and disposed of in the GVM compactor.

Managing noxious weeds on your property improves your lot and contributes to the “health” of your neighborhood. It also has the potential to encourage neighbors to do the same.

You can talk to your neighbors about weed management but it must be done in a respectful manner. Never perform weed management on someone else’s property without explicit permission.

Some weed warriors will pull weeds along roads that they walk. As long as there are no flowers on the plants, vehicles can run them over. If there are flowers on weeds, they need to be bagged and disposed of in order to be effective.
