SolutionsSolutions

In Lawns

  • Apply the selective herbicide LawnPro Turfclean. This will effectively control plantains but will leave lawn grasses unaffected. Spot treat with Weed Weapon Invade Gel or Weed Weapon Rapid Action. These Weed Weapon products are systemic and kills weeds down to the roots within 2-4 days.
  • For best results use in Spring and Autumn when weeds and turf are growing.

In Garden Beds

  • Spot treat with Weed Weapon Invade Gel or Weed Weapon Rapid Action. Weed Weapon is systemic and kills weeds down to the roots within 2-4 days and is an ideal product for use around established trees and shrubs. It is inactive in the soil so planting can be safely carried out soon after treatment. Weed Weapon Preventer can then be used to prevent plantain or other weeds emerging in the garden beds.
  • For a fast acting organic solution use Kiwicare Weed Weapon Natural Power.
  • For best results use in Spring and Autumn when weeds and turf are growing.

In Paths and Driveways

  • For long term control on paths and driveways use Weed Weapon Long Term. This will kill a wide range of weeds and prevent regrowth for up to 12 months.
  • For best results use in Spring and Autumn when weeds and turf are growing.
