In lawns

In garden beds

  • Use Weed Weapon Extra Strength to kill off the top growth. It controls clover within 7-10 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.
  • If you wish to more effectively prevent regrowth, apply Weed Weapon Preventer granules. This is a selective pre-emergent herbicide which penetrates deep into the soil so do not plant seeds or sensitive plants into treated soil within 3 months of application.
  • For a fast acting organic solution use Weed Weapon Natural Power.
  • For best results apply spray in Spring and Autumn when weeds 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 a fast acting organic solution use Weed Weapon Natural Power.
  • For best results apply spray in Spring and Autumn when weeds are growing.
