Weed in front Buffalo lawn
I have a buffalo lawn. During winter a weed grows under a large weeping cherry which has lost its leaves. I have used weed and feed, resorting to digging out by hand with no success. It is clumping and affecting an area about 1 square meter at the moment. Can you tell me what this weed is and do you have a treatment for it?
Hello Terry, this looks likely to be crab grass. Unfortunately we don't have a registered product to control this plant. To reduce the chance of application to any wanted plants, hand application of a product will be your best chance. Try 'Yates Zero Weedkiller Super Concentrate' as a spot spray, or paint on with the 'Yates Zero Weeding Brush'. Please use caution when using the weedkiller near other plants/lawn, because everything that it touches could potentially kill.
