The best 2 ways to kill weeds in your lawn are to mow your lawn regularly, and to chose a lawn like Buffalo or Zoysia that competes well with weeds. Broard leaf weeds have broad generally flat leaves and could be sprayed out of your lawn with chemicals such as Bromoximal MCPA, often sold under the brand Bindii Killer. If you have got Buffalo turf, make certain you use one compatible with Buffalo.
Broad leaf weeds include clover, Bindii, thistle, Capeweed, Creeping Oxalis, Cat’s Ear and more. You can utilize either the chemicals diluted into a spray pack or unit, which happens to be the best way. Spray the lawn and the weeds will die, and the lawn will remain unharmed.
Other options include using a clip on hose herbicide such as Yates, which is easy to use, but on some harder to kill weeds like Clover, are not as effective as the mixture you would make up in a spray unit, however for other weeds they work well.
Weed and feed products sound good, but horticulturist tend not to recommend spraying a weed chemical and fertilising concurrently. It is advisable to keep these processes separate. Some clover weeds can be particularly stubborn, and you may need to use a stronger chemical, but sorry to say these are not available to the public, so you may need to hire a specialist, or just simply kill the areas dead with round up, and replant, or try stronger frequent applications of the broad leaf chemical available to you.
