Kill weeds before they show!
You can control summer weeds as well as winter weeds with a pre-emergent herbicide such as Oxafert. The beauty of Oxafert is it stops weeds appearing, plus it contains a fertiliser component as well to give your lawn a lift.
Applied correctly, the pre-emergent herbicide component will kill stubborn annual weeds before they appear, whilst the fertiliser component will provide the necessary nutrients to keep your lawn looking greener and healthier all year-round.
The idea of using a pre-emergent herbicide is to target weed seeds before they take hold by forming a barrier at soil level that affects the germination of any new seedlings. The combination of fertiliser and pre-emergent product provides an ideal mechanism to take the herbicide to just under the soil and the fertiliser helps give a quick boost to your lawn. Controlling both broadleaf and annual grass-type weeds including Winter Grass, Crowsfoot, Summer Grass, Creeping Oxalis and Crabgrass, the pre-emergent herbicide works by stopping any new seedings in their tracks – yet won’t inhibit any root growth of your established turf. The herbicide active ingredient has a residual effect for around three months, so is ideal to apply seasonally to coincide with the different weed types throughout the year.
Just remember, it won’t kill existing weeds, Oxafert prevents germination. So, as the temperatures warm up and the weed seed springs to life, Oxafert kills them before they emerge.
So, it’s a use beforehand type of remedy and if you’ve got a lawn full of weeds now then try and use a control now to get them under control and then look at applying the pre-emergent on a regular basis to keep them under control. Keep in mind however, that keeping a good performing lawn in good condition through regular maintenance and fertilisation will help keep weeds at bay and is a better option than trying to control weeds by spraying all the time.
