Kill Your Weeds: 3 Effective Methods for a Beautiful Lawn


Hello everyone! It's Rich from Mowd, and this week we're going to talk about three easy ways to tackle those pesky weeds in your lawn. We all know how frustrating it can be to see weeds taking over our beautiful green space. But fear not! With these simple methods, you'll be able to maintain a weed-free lawn all year round.

Method 1: Let Your Grass Grow

The first and easiest method to tackle weeds in your lawn is simply to stop cutting your grass too short. This applies to both the summer and winter months. By allowing your grass to grow a little longer, around 40-50 mm, you create an environment where the grass outgrows the broadleaf weeds that tend to grow lower. This allows the grass to receive all the sunlight it needs without competition from weeds. Weeds rely on their leaves to spread across the surface, blocking sunlight from reaching the grass. By letting your grass grow vertically, you effectively prevent weeds from taking over your lawn.

Method 2: Use a High-Quality Weed and Feed Product

If you prefer a more proactive approach, using a high-quality weed and feed product can be highly effective. Look for products that specifically target weeds, such as Turf Rise Weed, Feed and Moss Killer. These products contain active ingredients like Dicamba, Mecoprop and 2-4D, which are known for their effectiveness in killing most weeds. However, be cautious not to overuse these products, as they can be quite strong. Limit treatments to a maximum of two times per year. The best time to apply is during the growing season, around May, and potentially in September if needed. Using a quality weed and feed product can significantly reduce weeds growth in your lawn.

Method 3: Remove Weeds by Hand

While it may require some extra effort, removing weeds by hand is by far the most effective method, especially for larger broadleaf weeds. These weeds may be less common, but they can take up a substantial amount of space in your lawn. Using a knife or garden trowel, carefully cut them out from the root. It's important to fill the gap left by the removed weed with seed or soil to prevent new weeds from sprouting in its place. Although it may seem labor-intensive, removing weeds by hand ensures their complete eradication from your lawn.
