How to Get Rid of Lawn Weeds

Lawn weeds can be a major problem, taking over areas of bare soil. Nobody wants their lawn to be overrun with weeds so it is important to keep control of them.

There are a variety of ways to get rid of weeds in your lawn:

 

Use a lawn weedkiller

To tackle occasional lawn weeds, use a weedkiller designed for use on grass such as Resolva Lawn Weedkiller. This is really important as if you use a general purpose weedkiller, it will kill your grass as well. This ready to use spray can be directed straight onto common weeds such as buttercup, daisy, dandelion and clover.

 

Use a lawn feed, weed and moss killer

Large areas of weedy lawns are best treated with a law feed, weed and moss killer, such as Aftercut All in One.

This will boost the lawn while tackling weeds and moss.

Apply the granules, using the Even-Flo spreader and leave to work for 1-2 weeks. When the weeds and moss die and turn brown, rake them out gently and dispose.

 

By hand

Remove weeds by grabbing hold of the stem and pulling.

It is very important to remove all the root system of each weed otherwise new plants will simply grow back from each of the pieces left behind.
