Fight Back Fast When Weeds Attack Your Lawn

Share Article

Help your readers fight back fast when lawn weeds attack. A long form and short form on how to succeed with weed control is included.

All too often weeds and spring arrive together. The first burst of warm weather brings a welcome greening to the grass and some unwelcome invaders. Broadleaf weed seeds can lurk in the soil for years, just waiting for a little wear or thinning of the lawn to spring to life and make their home in your yard.

Don’t let a purple haze of creeping charlie or bright dots of yellow dandelions spoil your lawn. You no longer need to get hot under the collar watching the weeds spread and waiting for temperatures to heat up to the 60 degree range when most control products become effective. You can act now with SpeedZone® Lawn Weed Killer, the new broadleaf weed control from PBI Gordon. Formulated with the latest technology, SpeedZone® has proven cool-weather performance in temperatures as low as 40 degrees so you can hit weeds now. The early season application catches the weeds while they are young and most susceptible and before they’ve grown large enough to crowd out even more of your grass.

SpeedZone® acts fast because of that high-tech formula. You’ll see weed reaction within 24 hours. Weed death occurs in 7 to 14 days. It even does an excellent job eliminating those persistent, hard-to-control weeds like clover and ground ivy. Economical SpeedZone® goes a long way. The 20-ounce concentrate treats up to 18,000 square feet and is easy to apply with a tank-type or hose end sprayer. For spot treatment when just a few of those weed invaders appear in your otherwise perfect lawn, pick up SpeedZone® in the new ready-to-use quart or gallon sizes.

With either method, time your application between mowings - two or three days after the last mowing and two or three days before the next one - so you have enough of the actively growing weed surface to absorb the spray. Pick a calm day, with little wind, to make sure the spray doesn’t drift onto other plants in your yard. SpeedZone® is quickly absorbed, so if it’s been down for at least three hours, even a sudden spring rain won’t stop it’s weed whacking power.

You’ll get a head start on season-long lawn care by putting seed in place to fill those weak or bare spots and prevent new weeds from popping up. With SpeedZone®, you can reseed in just two weeks after application. Rake lightly in the area to be reseeded. You want the tines of the rake to scratch the soil just enough for good seed to soil contact. Broadcast the seed evenly over the area to be reseeded and water lightly to wash the seed down to soil level. Continue to water lightly every day until the seed has germinated and the new seedlings match the size of the established grass. Then begin watering less frequently but for longer periods so the water soaks into the soil and encourages the grass roots to grow deeper.

A thick, sturdy lawn is the best defense against weed invaders. But if a few weeds do try a sneak attack during spring, summer or fall, wipe them out quickly with a spot application of SpeedZone®.

SpeedZone® is available at select garden centers, nurseries, hardware stores and farm and ranch stores. To find the store nearest you, check the dealer listing on the website: consumer.pbigordon.com.
