Prevent weeds from taking hold – Keep lawns in good condition. Remove seed heads from weeds. Take care when bringing soil or equipment into the garden.
Dig them out – hand control of weeds in the early stages is the best method of all. Young weeds are easy to remove and they won’t have had the chance to form seeds that can spread to other parts of the garden.
Mulching – a layer of mulch will smother weeds in the garden and prevent their germination and spread in the garden and lawn.
Herbicides – these are chemicals that kill weeds.
Selective herbicides remove some plant types and leave others unaffected. They are mostly used to remove weeds from lawns.
Weed’n’Feed products, These remove weeds from the lawn while, at the same time, fertilising the lawn.
Non-selective herbicides (also called total herbicides) kill every plant they contact.
Glyphosate – moves through the plant to the roots. Usually takes 1-3 weeks to take effect. Soil is unaffected by glyphosate and can be planted as soon as plants have died.
Woody Weed-Killers – very effective control for unwanted trees and shrubs (check local Council regulations before removing trees).
