weed control


I have crab grass in my pasture of bermuda grass. I need to kill it now and prevent it from coming back. Can u help me with a product to use?

We can. In our WEED CONTROL ARTICLE, we have two products that will do the job. First, treat with the WEEDOUT which will kill exposed crab grass. Next, apply SURFLAN to stop anymore from growing.

Here are direct links to the information and products listed above:

can i apply liquid surflan to beds that have lillies or daffidills already 12 to 15 inches high?

Absolutely. As explained in our WEED CONTROL ARTICLE, one of the great features of SURFLAN is that it won’t hurt anything already growing. Use it at least twice a year to keep any weeds from growing locally in both your grass and flower beds.

My asparagus bed has been taken over by grass. Can I use Hi Yield grass killer early in spring before asparagus comes up or will this kill asparagus?

Thank You

If you review the GRASS KILLER LABEL, you’ll find that not only is it OK to spray POAST GRASS KILLER before the asparagus comes up but even afterward. In other words, you can actually spray during the growing season when the asparagus is maturing. There is a “one day to harvest” waiting period following the treatment but my point is it’s OK to use as needed during the growing season.

The reason for this is explained in our WEED CONTROL ARTICLE. Basically selective herbicides generally target one type of plant or another. In this case, the grass killer is pretty specific and won’t affect flowers, shrubs, trees or even most vegetables. There are some exceptions to this rule but if you review the label, you’ll see it’s OK to spray on most any common plant grown around the home.

Here are direct links to the label, product and article mentioned above. And if you have further questions or concerns, let us know. You may always e-mail or call us toll free 1-800-877-7290.

I have several types of weeds growing in my yard and need to do some weed control. I don’t see any crabgrass but there are a lot of vines growing as well as some big leafed plants that look like oak of some sort. Is there anything I can spray which won’t hurt my fescue but kill these weeds?

There are several selective herbicides you can apply that will only target the broadleaf weeds and not hurt the fescue. I suggest you read our WEED CONTROL ARTICLE and focus in on the LAWN GRASS WEEDS section. Here you’ll find all the best choices of what to use.

At this time, I think you’re choice will depend largely on how large of an area you plan on treating. Either the BROADLEAF WEED KILLER RTS or the BRUSH KILLER will probably do the trick. The thing about broadleaf weed control in lawns is that many times there are weeds growing you don’t see. If you only choose to treat a small area where you currently see them growing, many times you’ll note “new” growth in the untreated sections of the lawn. Avoid this by treating it all one time. This is usually the most effective way to handle post emergent applications – especially in lawns.
