More Plant Talk

Whether you’re an amateur gardener or a professional lawn care specialist,
everyone struggles with the same challenge….weeds.
Here are some tips to keep them away in this week’s Plant Talk.

KEVIN: When it comes to weed control in our yard, there’s a lot of different chemical options, but it can be overwhelming. Today we’re going to take a look at how we can solve those problems. Alright, let’s go conquer some weeds.

KEVIN:  So the two main concepts to understand when controlling weeds chemically, is whether or not you have a broadleaf weed, or a grassy weed. After that, you can choose your chemical to selectively control it out of your problem area.

So most of us understand that we can spray our broadleaf weeds, and selectively take them out of the grass, but we’re going to take a look at an example where you can take the grassy weed out of a broadleaf area.

Okay, so now we’ve got the opposite example. We’ve got a seedum ground cover that we want to save, so we want to take the grassy leaf out of the broadleaf. Now it is important that the grass be about only four, maybe no more than eight inches tall for this to be effective. So best to catch it when it’s young.

KEVIN: Now if your grass has progressed beyond that four to six inch stage, your other option is to use the Wick Method to kill it. We’re going put a rubber glove to protect our hand, then a cloth glove to  absorb the chemical, and I’m going to use Roundup. Just get a little chemical on the tips of your glove and that’s the Wick Method.
 
KEVIN: Thanks for watching Plant Talk, we’ll see you again next time.
