Buffalo Weed & Feed
For most home lawn owners, a lawn full of weeds after the winter is a common occurrence. The generally cooler and wetter weather encourages the weeds to grow quickly and strongly while the growth of the warm season grasses have slowed down or stopped due to the lower temperatures. These troublesome weeds can rapidly crowd out and smother the existing lawn grass resulting in a weak, sparse or patchy lawn.
The dilemma for many homeowners is to decide what type of spray or weedkiller they should use to control the weeds in their lawn. Many do not even know what type of lawn they have. Consequently you need to be extra careful with broader leaved buffalo lawns, like the old fashioned scratchy types or the newer soft leaved lawns. These include common brand names such as Sir Walter, Palmetto, Sapphire, Matilda and Shademaster.
By selecting and using the wrong product you could seriously damage or even kill off your lawn. So Colin suggests a way to make it simple for you, so you can avoid all the guesswork… Just use Scotts Lawn Builder Buffalo Weed, Feed and Green Up. It makes killing weeds easy!
Scotts Lawn Builder Buffalo Weed, Feed and Green Up contains the selective herbicides Bromoxynil and MCPA so it is harmless to most varieties of buffalo grass and it can also be used on all other types of lawn grasses.
Buffalo Weed, Feed and Green Up not only kills weeds but also feeds as well, providing a total health treatment for your lawn. It works by combining a liquid fertiliser to quickly green up your lawn with a selective weedkiller for bindii, clover and other broadleaf weeds.
This superior formulation provides 12% Nitrogen for lush green growth compared to 0% and 2% in similar ‘Weed and Feed’ hose-on products. There is additional iron for deep greening and an extra 3.5% Potassium for improved lawn health and disease resistance, which is not included in the other hose-on brands.
The lightweight 2.8 litre Easy sprayer is so much simpler and safer to use unlike the other heavy weed and feed bottles that can leak and make spraying a chore. One bottle will cover up to 180 square metres or your average sized home lawn.
The easy sprayer includes a precise and comfortable on off or water only switch that takes the effort out of spraying. The problems of leaking bottles and tap connections will no longer be a problem. The side view panel makes it quick and convenient to check the level of spray left in the bottle. The Weed, Feed and Green Up treatment is safe for pets to walk on once it is dry and avoid spraying if rain is expected within 4 hours after application.
Alternatively if you have a couch, bent, fescue, ryegrass, kikuyu or even a paspalum lawn you can use Scotts Lawn Builder Weed, Feed and Green Up to take care of the weeds. It is made with the same premium formulation except the selective herbicide Dicamba is used instead of Bromoxynil.
Remember Scotts Lawn Builder Buffalo Weed, Feed and Green Up not only kills weeds but feeds your grass at the same time, providing a total health treatment for your lawn.
