Snoqualmie residents asked to help with weed control in sidewalks

Snoqualmie's commercial landscaping company is spraying the curb lines citywide to prevent grass and weeds from damaging city streets and curb lines.

Happening this month, spraying occurs twice each year in an effort to preserve streets, curbs, and  gutters.

Residents are asked to help with grass and weed control by spraying the control joints (cracks) between the sidewalk squares in front of their homes when weeds are present. Citizens are asked to spray them with a product containing glyphosate, which is sold by the brand name “Roundup” and other brands. An organic alternative is undiluted white vinegar, which you can spray or pour directly on the weeds in the sidewalk joints/cracks. It is best used on a warm day when weeds are actively growing.
