Professional Weed Abatement Services Protect Your Home and PropertyIs the yard around your home being overrun by weeds and other plant invaders? This is a big problem for many LA area home and business owners. These weeds often compete with the vegetation you’ve planted for water, nutrients, and sunlight. This can cause you a whole host of problems including reducing your property values, degrading the natural environment around your home, negatively impacting your and your family’s quality of life, and creating a very real fire danger.

Weed abatement services are designed to prevent these problems. Weed abatement consists of removing weeds and other unwanted vegetation from around homes and buildings. It also includes clearing away any dry, dead or overgrown landscaping that can provide the perfect fuel for a fire.

Weed abatement isn’t just a good idea – in LA, it’s the law. The Los Angeles County Code requires LA property owners to keep their properties free of weeds, rubbish, and other material dangerous or injurious to a neighboring property or to the health or welfare of residents living within the vicinity. Violators can face fines of up to $1000.

There’s More to Weed Abatement Than Just Pulling Weeds

Weed abatement might sound like an easy DIY yard project. However, effective weed abatement isn’t as simple as pulling some weeds or clearing away some brush. Several of these “weeds” are actually beneficial native plant species that help control drainage and erosion. Most LA property owners are unable to tell a beneficial species from a harmful one.

In addition, a lot of these pest plants are armed with nasty thorns and spines. Others have toxic properties. A few of the toxic plant species common to the LA area include lantana, pacific poison oak, poodle dog bush, foxglove, century plant, and angel’s trumpet. Dead and dry brush can be home to rattlesnakes, scorpions, spiders, centipedes, ants, wasps, and other unpleasant pests.
