NEW Herbicide Sprayers: Your latest landscaping must-have

Professional herbicides are part of a landscape gardener’s essential kit. A firm favourite is ProShield, a long-lasting weedkiller that protects your hard-earned work against future weed growth for up to six months. The best way to apply this herbicide safely, evenly, and effectively is by spraying.

New herbicide sprayers

Landscapes Direct now offers a range of professional herbicide sprayers from leading manufacturers Berthoud and Cooper Pegler to complement its range of herbicides. From the handheld, six-litre Berthould 8 Pro Sprayer to the latest Berthoud Electric Vermorel 3000, capable of six hours of uninterrupted application, we’ve got sprayers for all applications.

Some landscape gardeners rely on the original knapsack sprayer, the Cooper Pegler CP15 Classic. First launched in the 1960s, its robust design has meant its longevity is legendary and can last over 50 years. Over recent times, Cooper Pegler has extended their offering, including sprayers with piston pumps for better efficiency, such as the CP15 Series 2000, a 15-litre sprayer.

Top tips for effective spraying

Whichever size or type of herbicide sprayer you opt for, there are some essential tips to keep in mind:

  • Choose your herbicide wisely, opting for one that can handle large droplets for optimum coverage or one that you can dilute to the ideal solution
  • Select the proper nozzle for the job. A single deflector nozzle is best for spraying nonselective herbicides, whereas a fan nozzle may be better for selective herbicides.
  • Wait for the dew to dry before application, yet allow a long enough drying window before dew forms in the evening.
  • Dry, overcast and calm days are optimum for effective spraying. If you’re working in windy conditions, choose an appropriate nozzle to reduce drift.
  • Avoid hot, sunny days for spraying, as plants will not efficiently absorb the herbicide.
  • Herbicides are chemicals, so always wear the right PPE to protect your eyes, mouth, hands, and body.
  • Keep the nozzle pointing down and close to ground level to avoid applying to unwanted areas.
  • Use a wide spray pattern for large areas, being cautious not to overspray.
  • Pouring excess solution down the drain is illegal as it can pollute groundwater and water supplies.
  • Calibrate, maintain and service your herbicide sprayer to ensure its longevity and continued performance.
