How to Kill Weeds in Your Lawn

How to Spray 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.
  • Store chemicals according to label instructions. Read more in this guide.
