Grass and Weed
Grass and weed killers can be created to destroy everything with which they come in contact with or they may
focus on only a particular variety of plant. The treatments are available in two fundamental types such as
pre-emergence and the post-emergence. Pre-emergence items are useful for preventing the seed germination and the
post-emergence items are designed to target the weeds and grass after they germinate from the seeds. Pre-emergence
items can be applied without any difficulties; however its application should be performed prior to the onset of
weeds. These products are not suitable for gardens where all the varieties of seeds are planted. Pre-emergence
products are most suitable for gardens where only the full grown plants are planted.
To choose the perfect grass and weed killer for a garden, it is necessary to analyze the specific problems of
the garden. Broadleaf killers are made specifically for focusing the plants having wide leaves. They are effective
in eliminating the grasses however; they are more useful for getting rid of few vines and other dangerous weeds.
Broadleaf killers are poisonous in nature and may destroy the plants with broadleaf including majority of the
shrubs and flowers. It is highly recommended to use a brush to apply them on weeds. They provide excellent results
when used for removing the weeds in lawn.
Systemic weed and grass killers are taken inside the plant through absorption process by the leaves and will be
spread through the entire plant parts. They are able to attack even the root parts of the plant and destroy them.
These systemic weed and grass killers work more effectively while the grass and weeds are growing very actively and
not suitable for utilization particularly in the drought situations. If they are applied in the gardens during the
rainy seasons, then the product gets diluted and does not give effective outcomes. These killers usually take a
long time to start giving effective outcomes.
Majority of the seeds do not start to sprout during the early spring season. Hence, application of pre-emergence
products during the early spring season provides effective results.
Grass and weed killers can be produced by natural methods also. Natural organic items are sold in majority of
the markets and can be used for small amount of applications. Natural products are most suitable for weeds and
grasses which are not very dangerous. Lemon juice and white vinegars are very useful for reducing the cracks in the
areas that require spot weeding.
