Expert Answer

Broadleaf weeds such as Onehunga weed, daisies, hydrocotyle, clover, dandelions and thistles can spoil your lawn. Dig them out with a kitchen fork, knife or screwdriver, making sure you remove every centimetre of root so they don’t simply re-sprout. For stubborn weeds you may need to use an herbicide. Any weed-and-feed solutions will control most broadleaf weeds in lawns without damaging the grass. Because weeds and lawn grasses are from two different plant groups, it’s possible to kill one group without harming the other. The best time to apply weed-and-feed preparation is late winter/spring and autumn, when rain is not expected
