How It Works

  • How does Valley Green control my weeds?

We use a variety of different weed control products depending on the situation. All of our products are liquid based.

  • Can Valley Green control all of the weeds on my property?

Usually you will see a reduction in weeds of about 85%. No one can guarantee all weeds will be controlled, but this level of control should last for about three weeks typically.

  • Do you treat commercial properties?

We have more than a decade of experience controlling commercial properties for weeds, from golf courses to theme parks and restaurants.

  • How do I schedule an appointment?

You can schedule an appointment by phone or online.

  • What if my weed control question isn’t answered here?

If you have questions which aren’t answered in the FAQ, please, give us a call and we would be happy to answer. No question is a silly question!

  • What happens if it rains after an application?

The weed control may be affected depending on the amount of rain. Please wait at least 14 days after the treatment to see the full results before calling to request a re-treatment.

  • How long will it be before the weeds die after a treatment?

Depending on weather conditions, it may take up to 14 days for complete control. You will notice weeds curling a few days after an effective treatment. The dead weeds will not disintegrate quickly, but rather remain dead until removed. Please wait at least 14 days after the treatment to see the full results before calling to request a re-treatment.


  • When can pets or children play in the area after an application?

When weed controls have been applied we ask they stay off the area until this product dries, which usually takes 1-3 hours.

  • How trustworthy is Valley Green?

Valley Green Companies is one of the longest continuously operating weed control companies in central Minnesota. We have been providing professional weed control treatments since 1990. We also provide excellent customer service and offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee when you sign up for a full-season program.

Treatment Length/Number Of Sessions

  • Can you get rid of my Creeping Charlie?

Creeping Charlie is a very persistent weed. It will take multiple applications to control this problem but it will happen. We also offer free weed control service calls and will return free of charge between scheduled visits if necessary.

  • How long is a treatment session?

Treatment time depends on the size of the area, but typically weed control takes between 30-60 minutes with our professional applicators.

  • When will the treatment happen?

We treat properties as the weather permits. Your treatment program can start within a week or so of contacting us. We can treat the area whether you are present or not. We cannot apply weed control while it is raining, but once it is dry it can be applied.

  • How many sessions will I need?

Typically, for full-season coverage, your property will need to be treated in 3 applications – spring, summer and fall, about every 6 weeks.

  • Why do I need more than one session?

During the growing season, weeds germinate daily, so you will most likely have new weeds growing within 3 weeks after an application. To keep the weeds in check and stop them from overtaking your lot, we recommend scheduling weed control treatments about every 6 weeks.
