How can I control weeds in my lawn or paddock?

This is a question that is commonly asked, where 'undesirable weeds' such as plantains, daises or ragwort threaten to take over from the grass!

Unfortunately, its not a simple solution if you want to 'do it yourself'....

There are now not many selective herbicides (weed control products) available to homeowners - plus the fact you will need a way of applying it - either a dedicated watering can, or a sprayer of some description.

A watering can full doesn't go far on a small domestic lawn and is FAR too slow for larger lawns or paddocks...


There is! - Simply find a local grass care service to help you, with their experience, professional products and application systems the result will likely be more effective than using 'domestic grade' products.

If your property is within 30 miles of Spalding, Lincolnshire, we may be able to help.

Here at South Lincs Grass Care, we have the experience, qualifications, insurance and equipment necessary to quickly and efficiently rid your grass land (be this paddocks or lawns) of undesirable weeds. 

Using our professional grade, carefully calibrated knapsack sprayers we can treat domestic lawns quickly and efficiently as well as carrying out 'spot treatments' for isolated areas of weeds in paddocks.

For the larger areas, you can use our 'Techneat' pedestrian sprayer, which sprays a 3 metre width with each pass, yet will fold up and fit through a standard 3 foot wide gate.

Frequently used for small paddock work, this compact machine leaves no ruts in the grass (unlike heavy tractor sprayers) and is maneuverable enough to spray right into corners.  

For more details, on how we could help you control weeds in your grassland, paddocks or lawns, contact us today:

    I think you may be mis-interpreting the purpose of landscape juice. This is a site mainly for landscape and garden professionals to use, talk to each other and share experiences, its not really the best place to advertise to the public... just a friendly thought!...

"Personally I would recommend they fence it off. I certainly wouldn't have anything to do with the destruction of a perfectly good pond - too few of them already!"
