After 6 years of research and more than 400 tests, the introduction of Imprelis into the market this year was highly anticipated as it was the most scientifically advanced turf herbicide in over 40 years. Not only was it extremely effective on general broadleaf weeds like dandelions and clover, but it was also effective on the toughest weeds like ground ivy and henbit. The benefits of Imprelis are that it has low environmental impact due to it having one of the lowest application rates in lawn care; it has no impact on re-seeding; and is low toxicity to mammals. 

It appears that the damage is systemic – that is, the evergreens absorbed the chemical through their root systems from surrounding turf.

Landscape Solutions submitted samples from its’ properties for testing to determine the cause and has documented clients’ affected trees. We continue to inspect our properties on a weekly basis for any changes. We are in constant contact with our supplier, monitoring the latest developments, and are working to have a task force member from DuPont on our properties as quickly as possible to facilitate a resolution. More information will be forthcoming.
