At Ecolawn, we are pioneers in controlling and managing noxious weeds in Heber-Midway, Park City and Salt Lake City, UT. We not only evaluate your land for noxious weeds, but we form a long-range plan and a team to reduce noxious weeds from your property.
We provide these services to local governments, HOAs, property managers and residential properties.
At Ecolawn, we provide noxious weed control to help homeowners and landowners to comply with Utah’s Rule R-68-9 Utah Noxious Weed Act. Weed control is a normal part of a residential lawn care program. However, our noxious weed control services handle noxious weeds differently compared to typical lawn weeds.
Utah Weed Control Association classifies noxious weeds into A, B and C types based on the weeds’ population throughout Utah. Here are the seven most common noxious weeds found in the Wasatch Range, UT:
We use a product called Milestone to destroy noxious weeds in the early stages. When noxious weeds reach full maturity, it requires the plant to be taken down carefully to prevent seed heads from depositing new seeds.
Milestone is not an organic weed control product, but it’s on the EPA’s list of reduced-risk herbicides.
When you hire us to deal with your property’s noxious weeds, we’ll walk on your property to take a noxious weed evaluation. Then our technicians will apply Milestone to young weeds.
For weeds that have reached maturity, we collaborate with a company that will provide mechanical services to remove the stalks and seed heads for you. It’s impossible to kill the noxious weed seed heads using Milestone, so our partners will remove the seed heads carefully from the plant.
Then our technicians can spot spray the plants’ crown and surrounding weed leaves to destroy the remaining part of the plant and any of its offshoots.
The right customers for Ecolawn’s noxious weed control program include property owners with non-lawn areas. For example, we work with many government agencies that own trailheads or property owners with pastures and fields.
We help to keep biking and hiking trails open for use as well as fields and pastures manageable by removing noxious weeds.
Noxious weed control is also for people who are concerned with the environment and who own property. Noxious weeds put the surrounding environment off-balance by their growth and seed dispersion.
Another type of customer includes homeowners who may have noxious weeds growing on the outskirts of their property. Homeowners may face fines and liens on their homes for out-of-control noxious weeds on their property.
The real value of Ecolawn’s noxious weed control program not only consists of getting rid of current noxious weeds but also creating a program to manage these weeds in the future.
For example, some of these weeds grow up to 12’ to 20’ tall. Noxious weeds block trails, and they’re potentially poisonous to dogs and horses. Noxious weeds are invasive and can take over an area if they’re not correctly controlled.
Noxious weeds will take over native grasslands and ruin the pastoral flow of a meadow. Also, your neighbors don’t like to see noxious weeds on your property because the seed heads will disperse onto their property—costing them money and time to get rid of these weeds.
When you hire us at Ecolawn, we start your noxious weed control program by first assessing the extent of noxious weeds on your property. Our noxious weed control services are different from regular lawn care assessments. For example, homeowners can upload pictures of their weed problems to our customer service web site for an evaluation.
Our technicians need to visit your property in person to see your noxious weeds firsthand. We need to observe the extent of your weed infestation, design a plan to get those noxious weeds under control as well as set up a plan to destroy the plants already dotting your pasture or field.
We also need to take note of where these noxious weeds are located. Noxious weed control is not a one-size-fits-all program. Indeed, if noxious weeds are near wetlands, or too close to the city limits, we need to design a plan that involves controlling the weeds without polluting local waterways and killing beneficial insects.
We don’t handle any mechanical services. Instead, we hire a landscaping company who owns heavy equipment. There are times where we have to remove noxious weeds using no weed controls because of a wetland, streams or the weeds are too close to city limits.
We hire contractors who own heavy equipment such as bush hogs, Bobcats, and weedwackers to handle any mechanical weed removal.
We’ll visit your property three times throughout the season to make a note of the weed control’s progress in eliminating noxious weeds from your property. We’ll also coach you in best management practices to keep noxious weeds off your property or at least keep them under control.
Our noxious weed control program helps both city agencies as well as private property owners in Heber-Midway, Park City and Salt Lake City, UT.
Some of these noxious weeds are poisonous to dogs and horses. So, we remove them to keep your pets safe while walking or riding them on Park City or Salt Lake City’s regional trails.

Our goals include using the least amount of herbicides on your property as well as using equipment that removes noxious weeds without harming the property’s other native plants.
We’re currently trying a new strategy by placing native plants that can detoxify the noxious weeds as well as covering the ground to make it difficult for noxious weeds seeds to start germinating.
Ultimately, we want to get rid of noxious weeds through native plants. We’re committed to a cleaner weed removal system.
