Lowes Spectracide Weed Stop for Lawns- Crabgrass, Weeds

Spectracide Weed Stop for Lawns  is a selective herbicide formulated to kill all major types of broadleaf lawn weeds.  Kills roots and all without harming lawn grasses.  Now available in Spectracide Concentrate, Ready to Use or Hose End Sprayer.

The key to controlling broadleaf weeds is to use a broadleaf herbicide and use it with the smallest application rate necessary to do the job. It will not only save time and money but also keep you from needlessly introducing chemicals into the environment.  Also remember to spot kill weeds during the summer.

No matter how lush and healthy your lawn is, a few weeds will pop up. That doesn’t meean you have to treat the whole yard. Instead, spot-treat the weeds with a small, trigger controlled ready to use Weed Stop.

I tried Weed Stop and it took a couple of weeks but the weeds are completely gone. And I was surprised to find that just a few weeds are left in the yard. The grass was just covered with the clover and creeping charlie. I know of nothing else that kills creeping charlie without doing a complete kill with something like Round Up.

I’ve been using Spectracide and Ortho Weed B Gon for a while, and both are pretty effective. The Spectacide seems to require fewer applications than the Ortho. Have only used the concentrate and they both require that you dilute the product properly based on the type of grass you have. Too strong a dose and you’ll end up killing not only the weeds, but the grass too. Too weak and the weeds keep growing.

You do need to be careful and make sure you are not using it on a form of grass that it will harm. there are some lawn grasses that can’t take the punishment this product does to weeds. As always read and follow the label. I like the concentrate and use my own sprayer, not the bottles that hook up to a hose. I’ve never had any luck with those products. I’m sure others have, however.  But am I happy to see the creeping charlie and clover gone.

Weed-free lawns are not just for championship golf courses.  Now you can have a great looking lawn with Spectracide Weed Stop.  Just one dandelion plant makes up to 15,000 seeds, each of which can survive six years in the soil—creating 15,000 more seeds when it sprouts and matures.

The best way to control dandelions and other weeds in your yard is to grow a thick, vigorous lawn. Dense grass blocks out weeds and sunlight that seeds need to germinate. If only a few weeds dot your lawn, changing your maintenance tactics might be all it takes to get rid of them.

Eliminating weeds from your lawn or garden is a never ending struggle, but there are products available that make it a lot easier to get rid of dandelions, crabgrass and other  vegetation.  Spectracide Weed Stop is a herbicide,  which is a chemical that kills plants or inhibit their normal growth. The best product for you depends upon what types of weeds you are trying to eradicate. Herbicides vary according to their effects. Some affect germinating seeds, while others kill weeds after the plants are up and growing.
