Winter Grass Control In Lawn – Lawn Care Services for the control of Winter Grass in Lawns and all Grasses including Cool Season and Warm Season Grasses.
Winter Grass Control in lawn can be done using non-chemical and chemical methods.
Briefly the non chemical methods of control include regular mowing (with catcher) to prevent spread of the prolific winter grass weed seeds and hand weeding, however, hand weeding is best left to people with a lot of time on their hands.
In this article we will focus on the chemical control available with post emergent lawn herbicides.
The best retail herbicide targeting wintergrass in lawns is https://wwwbunnings.com.au/amgrow-100ml-winter-grass-killer_p2980004 – this product’s active constituent is Endothal.
Endothal is safe to use on all warm season grasses including Couch, Buffalo, Zoysia and Queensland Blue Couch, however, not on Kikuyu. Kikuyu suffers a fair bit of damage if sprayed with Endothal (Amgrow’s Winter Grass Killer), and the label says not to use Endothal on Kikuyu.
What we have found with Kikuyu is that Wintergrass is a similar colour to kikuyu and regular mowing seems to disguise the wintergrass and more importantly the regular mowing (with catcher, of course) reduces the spread of the prolific seed heads on the plant.
Also, you can use Endothal on cool season grasses like rye grass and fescue.
The professional product, with the same active constituent Endothal, we use in our LawnGreen business is Poachek by Campbell Chemicals.
You may need to spray the weeds twice a week apart if they are advanced winter grass weeds.
