Weeds of concern and their control varies widely by state. The attitudes of school districts toward weeds also differ depending on whether the weeds are in the recess yard or athletic field. How do school facility managers or contracted turf management firms contend with weeds?

This webinar showed how to observe your school grounds with an eye toward identifying weeds and their locations. A weed specialist provided Integrated Pest Management (IPM) based control tactics for common weeds. In addition, this webinar discussed landscape design solutions such as underlayments and mow strips to address weed issues, and related cow paths and desire lines.
