Hi all, just recently I have noticed lawn weed growing across my lawn, how do I kill it without killing my nice lawn ?
any particular lawn weed flumpy?
I will try and take a photo, but it seems to be growing along the top of the lawn, like strawberry shoots, does that help ?
I will try and take a photo Nutcutlet, I have no idea, keep you posted
Yes it's buttercup weed, how do I get rid of it, I have been trying to pull it up where ever I find it
You need to kill the roots flumpy or it will just keep coming back . You can use a lawn 'spot' weedkiller and apply it carefully - there are quite a few on the market I think, or if you have large areas of them it might be worth using a weed and feed on the grass which will kill them off and feed the grass at the same time. All GCs and diy stores stock these products and sometimes the own brand weed n feed products are as successful as the big brands in my experience.
Thanks fairy girl I will purchase some tomorrow
It's been a shocker of a year for weeds in the grass for me. Do weeds die over winter, or do they just have a nice nap under ground and come back stronger each year?
They will come back next year Tootles, completely refreshed and raring to go,
Humph! Our lawn is covered this year. Thing is, when I pull them up I rarely seem to get the end of the root. It always seems to snap about half way down. Is it essential to get the whole root out?
