Choosing the Best Method to Kill Weeds


There are several different approaches which can be taken to the killing of weeds in the garden. Yet this multitude of options can be boiled down to a simple choice between two main methods: manual or chemical? The manual method is more suitable for weeds which have grown amongst other, desirable plants. Removing the weed manually, usually with a hoe, ensures that there is no chemical presence which could harm the health of the desired plants. However, over a large area this can be extremely time consuming and tedious. Furthermore, some weeds should categorically not be removed manually, such as the onion weed, as this only serves to make the situation worse.

How to Kill Weeds: Identification


Identification of the weed in question, then, is vital to choosing the right approach to killing the weed. If manual removal is not suitable then chemical weeding killing is the next logical option. This branch of weed removal takes two broad forms, selective weed killer, which targets specific plants and has minimal effect on those plants which it is not targeting, such as desired plants and general weed killer, such as a glyphosate based product like Roundup. Selective weed killer is best employed on lawns and flower beds, whereas general weed killer is better used on concreted areas, such as driveways and patios, or on very small areas infested with weeds.

Q

Can I put it on stronger? Will that work better?

A Click here for the answer

We have carefully calculated the best rates at which to apply for each type of weed problem. Applying at a strong rate is not recommended and will not result in better performance. Please ensure that you read the label before use and use pesticides safely.

Q

Does the Concentrate need using up straight away after mixing?

A Click here for the answer

It’s always good practice to only mix up what you need for that treatment, but you can retain the unused solution for up to a week, since a gradual loss of activity will occur. Make sure that you store any weedkiller safely away from the reach of children and pets.
