The City of Durango promotes Best Management Practices in the stewardship of City lands to ensure the safe enjoyment of parks in the community.   

The City has contracted with Scott’s Pro-Lawn for turf fertilization and noxious weed abatement. The herbicides used for the weed abatement are Vessel Broadleaf Herbicide and Q4 Turf Herbicide. The weed control is repeatedly tested and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency, and Scott’s Pro-Lawn is licensed by the Colorado Department of Agriculture. City Parks staff will also be applying turf fertilizer to facilities not treated by Scott’s Pro-Lawn.

Applications improve the quality of rights-of-way, parks and open spaces in the City’s system.  Applications will start September 9 and continue through October 7.
