Broadleaf Weeds

Broadleaf weeds are weeds with leaves that have branched veins.


Broadleaf weed is a term used to differentiate them from grasses. Some selective herbicides will kill broadleaf weeds without harming grasses so are useful for getting rid of the weeds in a lawn.

Broadleaf weeds usually have wide leaves and have branched veins (i.e. veins don’t run parallel from base to tip). They are very common in garden bedding and lawns but can also be found growing through cracks in driveways and paths.


In Lawns

Apply a selective herbicide like LawnPro Turfclean, Prickle Control  or Hydrocotyle Control that does not harm lawn grasses but kills a wide range of broadleaf weeds. Selective weedkillers for lawns use the difference between broadleaf weeds and grass to kill the broadleaf weeds without harming the grass.

> For best results apply spray in Spring and Autumn when weeds and turf are growing.
