What to use for winter grass in perennial rye grass lawn

I have a perennial rye grass and couch lawn and was looking to use a pre emergent to control winter grass this Autumn, but noticed three munns winter grass killer says not to use on rye grass. Is there another product which you recommend?

Hi Brett,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Unfortunately, the product winter grass killer is only suitable for warm season grass lawn, not suitable for rye grass lawn. 

You may have to spot spray with Yates Zero Rapid 1-Hour Action Weedkiller which is a contact herbicide. Take care when applying as it will kill any plants it contacts. Click here for more info:

Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
