How to Kill Weeds in Your Lawn

Here's How to Treat All Those Ugly Weeds:
  • Wait until your weeds are actively growing so the herbicide, or weed killer, is immediately taken into the leaves as plants “breathe.”
  • Select a liquid product designated for use with your lawn type. Some may not be suited to certain grasses, so just be sure yours isn’t one of the exceptions. If you aren’t sure, ask your Garden Center associate for help.
  • Choose a completely calm day for the application, so the spray won’t drift onto other areas of the yard.
  • Wear gloves and long sleeves.
  • Read all the instructions on the container and prepare the product as directed.
  • Simply spray plenty of liquid on the weed leaves. 
  • Apply when the chance of rain is slim and avoid watering for 24 hours, so you don’t wash the herbicide off your leaves before it can be taken in.
