Bindweed in my lawn :(

Posted: 15/07/2015 at 21:38

Anything in gc for lawn weeds. Verdone is a top brand

Go for spot spray type. it will kill or weaken bindweed.  If you have a lot of it I wouldnt put it on compost heap.

Lawn weed killer should control it burnmw.  Cut lawns too closely and you set it up for other weeds to establish. Close cut grass is weaker.  I suggest raising blades and spot weed killing as and when.

Lyn, what I mean is get the best variety for your soil....viz., if you have alkaline soil go,for a good named red variety.  If you have acid soil go for a good named blue variety.
