About Weed Man Canada
Turf Management Systems Inc. is the corporate head office for the Weed Man franchise network. The first Weed Man turf grass professionals were Desmond & Brenda Rice who established the business in 1970, in Mississauga, Ontario. Brenda Rice is still active in managing the company with the assistance of an executive team led by Chief Executive Officer, Michael Kernaghan.
There are now more than 300 Weed Man franchise dealers providing Professional horticultural services across Canada, the USA and in the United Kingdom. They provide a livelihood for more than 2500 people directly, plus many others employed in capacities related to the industry. They provide responsible, Professional services to those who need help maintaining healthy surroundings for families. These include the elderly, the time-pressed, and those living in regions that present the kind of horticultural challenges that require specialized expertise.
It turned out that Des was ahead of his time. Not only were there a lot of North Americans who needed help with the most technical parts of lawn care, but his preventive approach eventually proved to be the right one. Today government agencies are recommending an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) procedure similar to the approach long employed by Weed Man Professionals.
