For our industrial spray programs, Coastal Spray uses a variety of methods to minimize environmental impact while increasing the effectiveness of our chemical spray. We use only chemical spray products for vegetation control that are environmentally friendly, safe to use for workers and highly effective.
Coastal Spray’s Bare Ground Control Program provides vegetation control to non-crop industrial sites such as airports, military installations, petroleum tank farms, pipeline and utility rights-of-way and other similar industrial areas that must maintain a vegetation free environment.
Our herbicide formulations may include both pre-emergent and post-emergent products designed to suppress or stop seed germination.
Selective Control Spray Programs reduce or eliminate invasive and competing vegetation allowing the preferred or native species to remain and prosper. Examples of this type of control are as follows:
Bermuda Release – Common Bermuda grass is drought-resistant, grows on many soils, and is the preferred grass on most industrial sites, and because of its low maintenance, Bermuda Release vegetation control often reduces mowing frequencies, therefore creating less worker exposure.
Hardwood Release – Similar to the Pine Release Spray Program, the Hardwood Release is tailored to the preferred species.
Pine Release – Used in a variety of commercial and industrial areas, pine-specific herbicide applications are used to eliminate the growth of the competing under storage and provide a “free to grow” area. Coastal Spray’s Pine Release Spray Programs usually last for two to three seasons. Once the trees have reached a height that is above the controlled vegetation, treatments are no longer necessary. After an area has been cleared of mature trees, pine seedlings are planted to replenish the pine tree population.
