Organic-Based Weed Control

For the last three years the City of Laguna Beach has used an organic-based weed control product called “AXXE” to manage weed growth on City maintained property.  Unlike pesticide-based weed killers like Round-Up, AXXE Broad Spectrum Herbicide is a non-selective herbicidal “soap" commonly used for organic gardening.  Made from biodegradable Ammonium Nonanoate, AXXE will quickly burn down chickweed, crabgrass, dandelion, algae, moss and more without harming the soil. As an effective herbicide certified by the Organic Materials Review Institute, AXXE can safely be use used around people and pets to help maintain weed-free sidewalks, walkways and driveways. It also works as a spot treatment in landscaped flower areas. It is a Biobased product, meaning it is derived from plants and other renewable agricultural, marine and forestry materials and provides an alternative to conventional petroleum-derived products.
