Selective Weed Killer

A selective weed killer is a herbicide that will kill the weeds on your lawn or sports turf while leaving the grass unharmed.

If cultural methods have failed and the problem of weeds in your lawn or turf has gotten out of hand, a selective weed killer is an effective way to help control the problem.

Typical lawn weeds may be unwanted flowers in the turf grass such as dandelions, daisies, buttercups and clover.

A selective weed killer is most effective when the weed is actively growing in a lawn, such as in the spring and if the problem is a major one, repeat applications may be necessary.

Weeds that can be controlled by selective weed killers include:

  • Bird’s Foot-trefoil
  • Black Medick
  • Cat’s Ear
  • Common Mouse-ear
  • Creeping Buttercup
  • Daisy
  • Dandelion
  • Greater Plantain
  • Hawkbit
  • Hoary Plantain
  • Lesser Plantain
  • Lesser Trefoil
  • Pearlwort
  • Ribwort Plantain
  • Sea Plantain
  • Selfheal
  • White Clover
  • Yarrow
