Ruined lawn?

Hi ,

I put weedkiller on my lawn and unforetuneately did not use selective lawn weed killer but generic glyphosphate. 

What can I do to save my lawn?

P.S. Should have gone to Specsavers!

    Oh what a bu$$er Lynda image

    Nothing's going to save it I'm afraid. 

    I would leave well alone for the winter ........ ban anyone and everyone from walking on it, dogs, posties, everyone ..... and then in March/April when the weather warms up and the soil is drying out and not claggy any more you can gently prepare the soil and sow some grass seed and have a lovely new (weedfree) lawn image

    Oh ... and if anyone asks, you can say you did it on purpose ... we won't tell image

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

  • When did you do it?  If it was today & it has not had time to dry out then give it a good soaking now, you might save it. If it  has dried on / been absorbed then I am afraid Dove is right.

  • Yes, get a hose on it and give it a good soaking... You might be OK if you do it now. Otherwise +1 for DoveFromAbove suggestion.;-)
