How to Kill Weeds in your Lawn

Weeds can be a nuisance in lawns, as they not only crowd out the grass but also make the lawn look unsightly. While pulling weeds by hand is an effective way to get rid of them, it can be time-consuming and laborious. A quicker and simpler way to control weeds is by using weedkillers.

Before you Start

The best time to apply weedkillers is during the growing season, from April right through to the end of September. This is when the weeds are actively growing, and the lawn is not dormant. Timing is crucial, as applying the herbicide during the wrong season can damage or kill the grass.

When using weedkillers, it is essential to follow the instructions on the label carefully. The application rate, the amount of water to be used, and the waiting period before mowing can vary depending on the product. Additionally, do not apply the weedkiller during windy weather or when rainfall is expected within the next 24 hours. This can wash away the herbicide and affect its efficiency.

The Right Weedkiller for Your Lawn

The most effective way to ensure you eliminate lawn weeds completely is to use a weedkiller that has been developed specifically for lawns, like Resolva Lawn Weedkiller.

This powerful weedkiller is easy to use and gets straight to the roots of the weed, but doesn’t affect your grass, leaving you free to get on with the mowing!
