weed killer grass seed friendly

Can I spray weed killer on recently seeded lawn? I don’t want the weeds to take over before my new lawn gets established.

Lawns seeded in spring tend to get weedy, which is one reason why autumn is the recommended time for planting cool-season grasses (such as Kentucky bluegrass and tall fescue). Before applying an herbicide, wait until new turf grows enough that it requires mowing three times. Young grass plants are sensitive to weed killers and may be damaged if the herbicide is sprayed too soon.

There’s nothing more frustrating than looking out across your perfectly manicured lawn and seeing it marred by unsightly weeds. As well as ruining your view, weeds can be harmful to other plants as they steal precious nutrients from the soil that they need to grow. This is where weedkiller comes in as it can quickly deal with weeds to keep your garden healthy and looking its best.

Not only will it help you remove tree stumps, but it can also deal with destructive plants like Japanese Knotweed and Ivy which can cause structural damage.

Tree stumps are an especially troublesome problem in gardens. It’s no good removing a tree just to be left with the tree stump. A weed killer like Roundup Stump Killer will be absorbed by freshly cut wood surfaces to kill the roots of tree stumps making them far easier to remove.

Your flower beds are often the focal points of your garden so it’s good to have a preparation plan for weeds. After all, you spend a lot of time and effort cultivating these vibrant garden additions so they’re worth protecting.

When using weedkiller, it’s important to make sure you use it at the right time. Weedkiller is best used at the start of spring so you can catch weeds before they start to thrive and again in the autumn for maintenance. Weedkiller is best applied in fair, dry weather to give the soil time to absorb the weedkiller.
