Broad Leaf Spray
Winter is an excellent time to focus on getting these invaders under control. In the cooler months of June and July, warm season turfs like Sir Walter fall into a dormant state, while broad leaf weeds continue to grow and become more obvious. This means that it is the perfect time to nip them in the bud (so to speak) by taking some serious action. By taking care of these pesky tasks now, you will have a greener lawn that will be ready to spring back into full health as soon as the warmer months hit.
If there are only a few problem weeds that need to be removed from your turf, then manual removal of them, pulling the roots along with the main plant, is an option. However, if you have a more serious invasion ofbroad leaf weeds then a weed control spray such as Sir Walter Weed control ($17.80 for 250ml, enough to cover 400 square metres – available from the Illawarra Turf Lawnstore) is your best option. This product has been specially designed by to be safely used on buffalo lawns like Sir Walter, so it is perfect for dealing with an irruption of weeds. As with all lawn care products, read the instructions for safe application carefully before use.
