Many of us have unwanted weeds in our landscape. If you have concern about using herbicides or pesticides and are unable or unwilling to do so; goats are a highly effective bio-control agent that can be utilized to reduce encroaching weeds to an acceptable level. Goats eat a variety of unwanted vegetation and poisonous plants. Renting goats to eat away weed growth is the perfect Eco-friendly solution to eliminate the use of harmful chemicals. A Goat’s diet consists of about 70% non-grassy species; as browsers, goats seek out their favorite foods such that their grazing activity will not harm the desired grassy areas of the landscape. In fact; the added benefit of grazing goats is; the way their hooves till and aerate the soil and trample in their own fertilizer, promoting the growing environment for healthier grass.
