When weeds are showing their ugly and sometimes beautiful heads in our lawns it can be trying, but there are a few things that will help make your weed control more effective.
Leaf surface is key… Do not mow the lawn 2 days before applying a weed killer if it will cut off weed surface.
Granular weed killers need to stick to the leaf surface through moisture from wetting or morning dew before application.
Liquid weed killers can be applied while grass surface is dry, however both need to stay on the weeds for 24hrs without rain washing them off. No mowing as well for 2 days after if possible!
Always read the product labels for any specific directions before application.
