As I mentioned in an earlier post, I went up to Home Depot yesterday and picked up some Ortho Weed B Gone Plus Crabgrass Control to deal with the weeds that are popping up all over the lawn. This is a selective herbicide, which means that the chemical only kills the weeds, not the actual grass.
I guess the question is, does this stuff work? The fear that every person who works on lawns has is to see their once semi-beloved lawn totally dead after they apply a selective herbicide to the entire thing. To deal with that fear, I would suggest applying some of the weed control spray to a small portion of the lawn to see what dies. After a few days, if only the weeds are dead and your grass is still alive, go ahead and finish up the rest of your lawn. This is just my suggestion; I’m sure there have been thousands of people who have used this weed control throughout the years with no trouble. Just read the directions.
I applied the Ortho Weed B Gone Plus Crabgrass Control this morning to the entire front lawn. I wanted to show you some photos of how fast this kills the weeds.
I’m not sure how long this stuff takes to work on all the weeds on the entire lawn. I already see a whole bunch of Clover curling up and dying as well. Maybe I’ll take some pictures in a few days to see how far the process has come.
