Safeguard contractors

I was thinking about doing grass cuts for safeguard. How picky are they about the grass cuts? Im seeing on the grass cut check lists that you are supposed to spray weed killer on fence lines are they really worried about that? I just dont understand why you gotta kill it if you got to trim it also.

Licensed for pesticide application? I think that is what Hammerhead was referring to. Most contractors are not licensed for Pesticide applications and that business is VERY vindictive

Another grass cutter see's you spraying and they love to turn in the "competition". Just saying.

Yes that is what I meant.I shoulda been clearer. You don't want to get caught spraying anything with out one. In case you haven't heard the govt needs $$$$$$$$

For several years Safeguard sent out notices that yards were not to be sprayed. May have been over the liability from the little girl next door getting sick from the glyphosate and the lawsuit that followed. I wouldn't be suprised if subs working for them just filled their sprayer with water and used it for a photo op after the trimming was done.

Good one GT, thats about all thats legal to do with that sprayer unless you are at your own home.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

@SIR message me your e-mail address and I'll send you this year's Grass Cut Manual. Yes, they are picky and yes they are now requiring that we spray weed killer on every visit. The requirements for what you're doing and showing in your photos have changed drastically for this season.

You are being asked to be a commercial applicator. Check with your local Dept of Agriculture....I go get certified every 2 years as that is the requirement here...I actually participate in a yearly continuing education program through one of the framers co-ops here and then participate in the DOA, program for certification...
But this is something as someone said if you're not awarr of things like "drift" or leaching factors of the chemical you're using...can cause little Suzy next door to become sick or the dog across the street comes by and chews up the area you sprayed and gets sick etc....
it is definitely a CYA area you need to be aware of...
