If you want a perfect lawn that you can walk on without all the painful bindii prickles, then you need to spray now to clean up for spring.
Winter is a time when many nuisance weeds and prickles seem to invade our home turf, causing much pain and frustration. One such major nuisance weed is the bindii.
If you have ever walked on a bindii and felt the sharp pain they cause, you may be interested to know that it is actually the seed that forms the prickle. Bindii grows in the winter and sets seeds late winter to early spring.
The trick to stopping bindii from spreading is to spray them in winter as soon as you see them, before the prickles develop, and continue to repeat spray every 3 weeks until they are gone. Repeat spray is important as this will control weeds that have germinated after prior spraying.
One excellent weed killer which kills bindii is Searles Buffalo Master. Searles Buffalo Master is a powerful spray effectively treating bindii, clover, oxalis and other common lawn weeds. Searles Buffalo Master is suitable to spray on many types of lawn including Buffalo lawns including Sir Walter and Palmetto, couch lawns including Queensland blue couch, Bent, Rye, Kikuyu, Fescue & Paspalum.
For better coverage
When spraying weeds, for better success add a wetting agent, such as Searles Spreadmax. Searles Spreadmax helps the spray to stick to the weeds, giving far better knockdown of weeds.
