Having lawn weeds is a normal, and expected, part of having grass. Once you have lawn weeds, they can spread quickly, so the sooner you get on to treating them, the better!
Most weeds can be easily controlled by applying a selective herbicide that will kill the weed but not harm the grass. Depending upon the degree of infestation, repeat applications may be required. Weeds such as bindii are best treated before the plant sets seed and can still be dug up and removed by hand.
Lawns that are dry, compacted and in a poor condition will be more susceptible to weed attacks. If you have any areas of lawn where there is damage or there is dead or dying grass, replace the turf to stop weeds from taking over that patch of ground.
The easiest way to prevent weeds from taking over your lawn is to keep your grass in a good condition. This involves ensuring your lawn is getting the required amount of water through natural rainfall, and supplemented with watering in times of drought. Regular fertilising with slow release fertiliser at least once a year will assist in keeping the lawn healthy. Regular mowing will also help to remove weed seed heads before they can mature and seed your lawn.
