Operations manager Jordan Lavin gives Rogers local TV an update on the lawn care business one year after the province of Ontario pesticide ban removed some of the tools the lawn care industry was using to manage pests.
The latest release of Fiesta weed control is both timely and effective. John Payne of Rogers examines the effectiveness with before and after video of Dandelions Lavin had treated with the product Fiesta offered by Nutri-Lawn. Its made with iron, which occurs in nature. Fiesta kills the weeds, and not the lawn. .
Nutri-Lawn has weed control that works!
Not all weed control companies in the Ottawa area are the same. Some guarantee weed control, some don't. Some have A+ ratings with the Better Business Bureau (www.bbb.org), some don't. Some give free weed touch-ups, some don't. Some have the insurance and licenses as required by the Ministry of Environment, some don't. These are just a few things to look for when selecting a Company to look after the lawn at your Home or Business.
Nutri-Lawn in Ottawa is owned and operated in Ottawa. We make our decisions locally by people that live and work in our community. Why is that important? Because the weather and agronomic conditions are unique in Ottawa and not the same as the weather in Toronto, Memphis or any other City.
Nutri-Lawn is at the forefront of weed control products. As new products are approved by Health Canada, we immediately run our own trials, ensure we can provide the results you expect as a client, train our teams on best practices, then incorporate into our production.
Our current product of choice is Fiesta, an iron based product that controls many of the common weeds on your lawn. (see weed pictures here)

Fiesta Lawn Weed Killer (Reg. No. 29535 P.C.P. Act) received federal regulatory approval by the PMRA in April 2010 and is registered and available for use in lawns, parks, cemeteries, golf courses and athletic fields to selectively control broadleaf weeds in turf.
Fiesta is compatible with integrated weed management practices in that it is applied only when weeds have emerged and is not used, and does not work as a "preventative" treatment.
MORE…. This new product was developed by Neudorff North America. Fiesta is an alternative to the traditional three-way chemical herbicides such as Killex that have been banned in many areas across Canada and the United States.
The active ingredient of Fiesta is Iron in the form of FeHEDTA. Fiesta iron is chelated with hydroxyethylenediaminetriaceticacid (HEDTA) to form FeHEDTA. Fiesta contains 4.43% Iron in the form of FeHEDTA.
Fiesta's mode of action is through Iron toxicity (oxidative damage) at the cellular level. The excessive uptake of FeHEDTA by many broadleaf weeds leads to the contacted area to turn black and brown (tissue necrosis) and ultimately plant death. Broadleaf weeds (dicots) absorb and uptake Iron differently than turf (monocots ) which provides the mechanism of selectivity. This allows the turfgrass to not be affected by the application and only the weed is controlled.
Fiesta is not available in certain by-law restricted areas. Contact your local Nutri-Lawn Franchise to find out if Fiesta is available in your area.
