Ruppert Grounds Treatments - Pet Guidelines
Posted on Mar 29th, 2023
There has been some concern about the products that were used by Ruppert Landscape on Tuesday, March 28th and the safety of these products regarding our pets. The information noted below is being shared with the community, as per Jason Groff, Ruppert Field Manager.
Curbside Area- This area was treated with a pre-emergent Herbicide (SureGuard) and as with most of these products, pets should be kept off of the treated area until it is dry. For larger areas treated such as the entire lawn, 48 hours is recommended.
Resident Beds (prior to mulching) – Crew is a pre-emergent product that was used prior to mulching our beds. It is relatively non-toxic to dogs; however, it is always prudent to keep your pet off of any treated area that remains wet until it has dried.
Resident Beds (after mulching) - As per our contract, Ruppert Landscape will address weeds in our front mulch beds as part of the mowing process. This is done by the use of Cornerstone Plus (the generic version of Roundup) in a very dilute form but the guidelines remain the same and that is that the pet should not be on a treated area until it has dried. Tuesday, March 28th, there were Ruppert workmen in the community walking around and through the mulch beds with sprayers. If any weeds were identified, they were sprayed. These cone-like sprayers direct the product (diluted Cornerstone Plus) to a concentrated area not over the entire bed.
Summary: Residents should keep their pets away from their front mulch beds for a few hours after a Landscape Maintenance visit in the event that any weeds have been treated. The Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for all Spring 2023 products noted above are posted on the website under Documents > Landscaping Files.
Hopefully, this guideline will help to keep our furry friends happy and well.
